I'm singing... I'm at work and I'm siiiiingiiiiiiing

Did anybody watch Elf the other night????? Since then our house has been a barrage of I'm siiiingiiiing related ditties.

So today is my last day of work... off for two weeks. Still scrambling to get a few things done that I have successfully procrastinate until today but I'm confident that by 4:30 I will be done. I have all of my Christmas shopping done, just waiting on a few more gifts to arrive via the mail and I should be good to go.

We are celebrating Scott's family Christmas this weekend and the festivities start tonight with Lee & Jill coming to stay with us for the night. Tomorrow we will head over to Ma and Pa Klassen's house until Sunday. Then next week I have to get all my gifts wrapped, amongst lunch with friends and all other sorts of fun stuff. Hopefully we will also get to see the Lepp's as Reese can now say Mia, and can't wait to see her! We also hope to see P & J and will work on those names as well!!!

Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and that we can all get together over the holidays for a visit!!

So it has been busy. Last week I was Winnipeg for the majority of the week for Convention. I always dread going and this year was no different. But it was awesome to see P & J ( ha ha) and Sherry. I realized somewhere along the way that lately I haven't really been feeling like me. I feel lost... like my whole life is Scott and Reese and being a mom and working full time. Anywho... being in Winnipeg for 4 days was wonderful for me. I was able to do anything I wanted, whenever I wanted, I actually took time to do my make up and feel kind of like me for a little while. It was fun to escape and it really rejuvenated me. I think that in the future I will be taking little mini "me holidays" more frequently.

It was also nice to come home though.... Reese is saying a new word a day and has added to her repetoire...

The bad thing about being gone for a week from work is that the work just waits and stacks up for you. I have 13 more days that I'm working this year and plenty of work and meetings to fill up twice that many days. So I am stressed out. Also, for the first time in many years I am not done Christmas shopping. Needless to say I have too many people to shop for that need nothing. I wandered aroud the mall aimlessly and came up with very little. Except for an outfit for Reese that I'm not overly fond of and chenille tights that cost as much as the dress! I normally not such a sucker but this woman caught me at a vulnerable moment and was a very persuasive ( pushy) salesperson.

That's all for me.
