A couple of quick reminders--those of you participating in the stocking stuffer exchange, make sure and get your stuff shipped out by tomorrow (12/17) if you haven't already.  You might also mark the box in some conspicuous manner so the recipient knows it's not something they ebayed or whatever in case they want it to stay a surprise.  I also want to know how it went for any who participated--you can wait until after Christmas, but I'd like to know since this was a trial run if there are things to change or do differently to make it better if we do it again next year.  Thanks!

Reminder number two is the FoodSaver giveaway from Ready Made Resources ends tomorrow night, so if you haven't signed up for that, make sure you get that done!  They were so fantastic to sponsor this giveaway, make sure you head over and give them some business if you're in the market for any of the wide variety of items they sell.

Been busy Christmas-ing: wrapping, packing, shipping, gifting neighbors, etc. the last few days.  I've only got a couple of odds and ends left to pick up.  I'm thinking I'm going to take a few minutes one night and just have hot cocoa on the couch and stare at the tree lights for a while with the Christmas music playing and relax and smile. :)

Sounds like Christmas is a major evolution at your house. We are kind of low key, although with our kids coming home we are doing more this year than usual.

Jim--we've got some real good "gourmet" type hot cocoa out here. Way better than Swiss Miss. :)

One Cluttered Brain--It's okay, I've heard from your receiver and she recognized the box for what it was. :)

Hermit--It wasn't such a big production before we had kids. We'd get our tree the week of Christmas then hit both the parents' places over Christmas/New Year's week even though they were in different states. Having children changes things.
