In the Nut House

We have been busy....We have been going a bit crazy....We have been a bit nutty lately....

*visiting with family and friends (my best friend was in town from Illinois, my families for Thanksgiving, meeting friends)
*shopping (great Black Friday deals and some Cyber Monday deals too. I officially only have stocking stuffers, 2 small gifts for my in-laws, 2 grab bag gifts and pick out my husbands gift and I am done. YAY. WOOP!)
* wrapping gifts (I have gotten a small chunk done. Lots more to go!)
*decorating our house for Christmas (pics to come in another post but we got a REAL tree that I am so super excited about. And my house smells good)
*working (4 ten hour days a week plus over time because I am clearly insane)
*dealing with 2 kids with coughs still. I am hoping Charlie's is not turning into anything serious. And teething (Damn things have not broken through for either child)
*rearranging furniture & toys to make room for all the decorations & all the new things Santa will drop      down the chimney (Santa might be bringing some pretty big things we have to make room for)
*party planning and attending (I am hosting a Christmas party, attending another one, going to an Oral B party, have another Christmas exchange party)
*picture taking (Pictures for cards done and ordered but still need lots more pics!)
*craft making (New wreaths this year and a swag)
*cookie making (To benefit my brother's co-worker. I have yet to start holiday baking...gah!)
*family time (Christmas movies with the kids. Crafts with Dom. Baking with Dom. Lots of trains, coloring and little people going on with Logan and Charlotte. And trying to spend time with my husband because dates nights are very few and far between. BUT I hired a sitter for Christmas break so we can have a date night. I could not tell you the last time we went to a movie. Maybe 3 years ago?! Oy!)

And with that all said....I am off to bed. (No, I did not meant to make that rhyme. It's just a bonus for you, ha!)


  1. WOW! You are a SUPER MOM! I am sure being crazy during the holidays makes it better, because it is such an exciting time. I hope you get some teething relief soon, for babies & you!!

  2. Hee hee I love rhyming bonuses... bonii??? Great work today I hope you got some sleep! My todo list is out of control because my in laws are coming in on friday and Cupcakes' birthday party is sunday

    For Love of Cupcakes

  3. This time of year is SO busy, but I love it! Can't wait for our Christmas party and the cookie exchange/playdate!

  4. You are crazy busy!! WOW!! I thought I was busy till I read your list:)

  5. I am def a busy woman. I would probably chop off my left leg for a week of nothingness. But not till after the Holidays because I LOVE this time of year. I have to say that I am truly never bored! But I am no Super Mom. Just a working Mom of 3 kids. Pretty sure most of you guys have the same type of schedule...give or take a kid or 2 LOL

  6. I do - I'm exhausted from my own to-do list and travels - and I haven't started anything about Christmas yet- I'm a last-minute kind of person! (OK, I do have a couple things for the baby! That's all!!)
