Christmas 2011

Christmas was just as wonderful as every. Christmas Eve was filled with our traditional activities of eating, cooking, a Christmas creative contest, a visit from Santa, Christmas puzzles, and presents. Greg won the trophy and bragging rights for the year. The two Ricks tied for second and third place.

Christmas Day included church, more food, activities and games, At the end of the day, we did our Santa letters and Christmas Poem. I will do a blog about my Christmas present from Rick after the wedding.

A Weekly Update

      This week was a very good week. I am well on my way to finishing two of the three majors goals I had on my list last Sunday night. I did take two days of school off this week. My Christmas shopping is 80% finished with presents wrapped. However, the major accomplishment is I found a dress and shoes for the wedding, in which I am pleased with both. Diana and Cheyrl had to go to Region 10 Monday night for about 30 minutes, so I decided I would go to Collin Creek to check out Macy's and Dillard's. After the shopping trip last week, I decided to change my criteria on the sleeve length. The dress I chose was in Dillard's. The special part of this was the sales lady that helped me was the same lady that Di and I bought dresses from 20-25 years ago when we were truly shoppers and Collin Creek Mall was the only place to shop. We had not seen her in years - she remembered us and our children. (Chad, she probably remembered  you under the racks and removing all the plastic sizes off the clothes hangers.) On Friday I found the shoes for the wedding. Now, I like purchasing the shoes for the reception and earings.
       For other Christmas happenings, we attended two church Christmas programs, a nice dinner with one of Rick's people from work, our Sunday School party, our middle school party, a Christmas band concert, and I cooked a family meal for Rick's and my family. I just love Christmas with all the hustle and bustle!!!!

WOW! Where has time gone!

I cannot believe that it has been a month since I have written a post. I do not know where November went, but I will try to recall a few highlights:
The Thanksgiving Holidays with wonderful food and family time.
Red-neck weekend at the NASCAR race.
A brunch for Tara in Dallas.
The house has been all decorated for Christmas.
The Streetman-Harris Christmas Party.

I have three MAJOR things hanging over my head for the future:
Christmas shopping
A dress to wear to the wedding.
The video for the wedding.

I hope December will go slower that November.
