Sunday Evening Check-In: Who's Here?

Evening ladies!  Who's here tonight?  I'm watching some football, taking care of a few last minute things for our Christmas dinner and PW'ing.  Later on, I have to finish baking.


What's everyone up to?

I'm here!
FI is going to watch The Hobbit with BIL & nephews so I am home with the boys, doing a bit of Christmas baking and resisting the urge to grab the ham I've just glazed & cooked and eat it like I'm in medieval days!! Lol

Kelly - Those "first sight of presents" photos and videos are some of the favorite ones I have of my boys - I was looking at them today actually, clearing off the memory cards ready for Christmas day!! It's amazing to see the changes in them each year.
They go to bed at 7:00 too...let the countdown commence! Lol

I'm here!  I'm taking a break as I'm fixing dinner (though I really need to take the trash out and fill the dishwasher.  I'm making the tater tot casserole that's been featured on the Duggars' show (I've never watched it, but a coworker made this for a luncheon, and I thought it was positively magical!).  Later on, DH and I are going to make some hot chocolate, get in the car, turn the A/C way down (simply because it should not be 74 degrees two days before Christmas) and go looking at Christmas lights.


I've stuffed DH's stocking with some neat finds, and later on tonight I may work on cleaning up a few things.  Tomorrow will be busy as I will be baking and finishing straightening up the house and taking care of my wrapping and packaging of gifts.  Then it will be a Christmas Eve service at our church, and then over to my grandparents' to spend some time and open some gifts.

I'm here! I feel like I went to work today. I got up at 8am and started prepping/making things for Christmas and I didn't finish until 4:30. But, on a good note, I've got all my prep done and Christmas day should be relatively easy. I'm so excited for Christmas! I got FI and our daughter such wonderful gifts. I can't wait to see their faces when they open them. I don't even care what's under there for me. I get excited over giving. =P  Can't wait for my Secret Santa to open her gifts either.

Sounds like you ladies are all having/had wonderful days!!!  Yay!!! I just finished putting color on my hair (GO RED) and once that is out, I'm making dinner and then baking all night.  I only have to work until 2 pm tomorrow and then depending on our weather, I'm hoping DH and I can brave the crowds to see the tree in NYC (we still haven't gone yet).

Sounds like we're all pretty busy!


And it looks like Christmas lights viewing will have to take place another night; DH is on the phone with a distant friend of his.  The guy's wife just left him for another man, and he's gone through a ton of mess over the past few years and is needing someone to talk to.

Dinner done, just had a tea party with my boys and their superheroes and now they are getting their PJs on.
Once they're in bed I need to make a sausage pie as a surprise for FI (I got the recipe from his mom when she was here in September) because he always used to have a slice cold with his turkey sandwiches on Boxing Day. I thought I'd do something nice because we aren't buying gifts for each other

Sorry ladies, I have been so busy. I actually had to work on a website today and then I had Christmas stuff todo and then my dog needed her bath.


I have to be honest with everyone, my husband has treated me like a queen this entire weekend and I have no idea why.


First I went shopping Friday for all of the gifts and bought and wrapped everything for our families. Lots of handmade things etc. Anyway Friday night he takes me to an End of the World party that his compnay is hosting. I had not even thought about attending it and he said we are going shopping and he bought me a new outfit just for that event.


Then yesturday we went shopping for my youngest son's last gift that we could not get locally and he sent me off to Sephora for a makeover and to buy some make up for myself and while I was doing this he said he wanted to pick up one last little gift for my son and instead he buys me a gift. He even wrapped it himself. He bought a Beautiful Butterfly Ornament to put on top of it. This is the first ornament he has ever picked out and given to me and we have been together 20 years! That alone was amazing. I think one of you girls must have told him how much I wanted an ornament for the tree.

Oh Christina, I'm so sorry to hear that you have to put Christmas lights on hold, but kudos to your DH for being there for his friend!  I just finished dinner too and my hair is now drying. 


Nicki - that sounds awesome that you are making FI a special pie!  We aren't exchanging gifts on Wednesday, but on January 6th for Epiphany (Little Christmas) - an Italian tradition. 


Jan - what movie are you watching?


IDo - Sounds like you had a busy weekend.


Hey Michelle!  I was wondering how you were.  Glad to see you back on the boards!! Expect something very soon from me.  : )

IDo your husband sounds wonderful.

Becca how did your hair turn out?? Piccies!!!!!

My pie is done - although it won't be much of a surprise because FI will smell it the second he walks through the door!! I've wrapped my last pressies - I used two rolls of tape and about 5 foot of bubble wrap for my 2 nephew's gift cards, it was all they wanted so they're going to have to work to get them!! Lol

I'll post them tomorrow after my camera is done charging.  It's a huge poofy mess right now too.  LOL.  I so wish my hair would be straight and not curly/frizzy.  LOL. 


That is TOO funny how you wrapped the gift cards.  I can just picture it!  : )
