It's SUPER SATURDAY! The Saturday before Christmas! One of the busiest shopping days - & I BELIEVE IT! With my cold still dragging on (aahh, the good ole' days where I could breath) I woke up at 5:00 AM all stopped up. I thought I would grab the handy nasal spray - an answer to prayer in the middle of the night- & go back to sleep. Not this morning. I just laid there thinking of all the things I needed to get done on the last weekend before the big Holiday! It was overwhelming! I couldn't get back to sleep - ON A SATURDAY! How wrong is that! So I get out of bed at 5:30 (YES - A.M.!) & start working on things - things needed wrapped, packaged needed bows, rooms needed cleaning, lists needed to be made.

By 9:00 AM - I felt like it should be well into the afternoon - so much accomplished - so much more to do. We ended up leaving the house at 1:00 & headed into the Super Saturday rush. WOW - it really was as busy as Black Friday - & we were in that mess too! For us, on Black Friday - its about fun - seeing what we can find & enjoying a good deal. Today, not so much fun. With lists in hands & no idea on some things, we're off to finish up! It was 5-6 hrs later & we're ALMOST done! We're about ready to throw in the towel - so close to that finish line though!

Just a few pictures to show my day - first, I was taking a picture of a knitting project I just finished. I can't put any pictures on here as it could possibly ruin some Christmas surprises - but this is just too cute. I had the project ready for the final picture before wrapping when Zoe popped up right in front of the knits & did her "Ain't I cute" pose - tell me, isn't she cute?

And look at our tree - I love our tree! We call it our Griswald tree because I swear, it lights up the whole house with all the lights! Notice how nice it looks - its because the packages are piled in chaos across the room! And see Julie - we haven't opened our package you sent - its waiting for Christmas morning - but anticipation is getting to me!

Finally - this is how I'm ending my day - with my kitchen in a complete & total declared DISASTER AREA! Things to wrap, gift cards to get in order, recipes to find in cook books (Yes - Christmas is a time for miracles - I'll be cooking a bit) - LOOK AT MY KITCHEN. I just told my mom I would be so embarrassed if someone came over & saw this - so what do I do? Post a picture for the world to see! Welcome to my chaotic world! Let the Final Countdown begin!


  1. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  2. Okay, could one of those "hand knit" gifts possibly have been the incredibly comfy, perfectly fitting, warmest socks in the world that currently grace my feet??????

    And yes... you HAVE to teach me how to knit socks! I am IN LOVE with them!!!! Only fair I guess, as I have now got you going pottery crazy!!!!!!!

    Thanks my friend!
