25 days of christmas eve

Well tonight is the night.... the 25 days of Christmas Eve. I had a meeting to attend tonight, but Grandma Linda assures me that Abby was beyond excited going to bed because Elwood! would be visiting the house while she slept.

I'd like to tell you that I have everything all planned out, but I don't. Much like last year I'm just going to wing it. Abby is convinced that, just like last year, Elwood's first note will be to write her letter to Santa and who am I to mess with Elwood? And Grandma Linda and Granny both have offered special family fun night treats for the girls to get via Elwood. I love that this has become a full on family project.

Today in preparation of Elwood Abby stashed her basket under the tree in my office and started working on her list for Santa.

She put number 5 on the list just for me. What a sweetie! And please make note of numbers 9 through 11! Tech junkie!

Know what? I may be just as excited as Abby!

I told Big J I needed a iPod for Christmas and he promptly told me I could have his. Damn hand me downs. :(

LOL!

Happy Holidays friend, I love your blog.
I didn't think Santa made DSs or iPods or iPhones...
at least, that's what I've heard (and said!)

;-)

Have a Great 25 Days of Christmas!!

Hey Shan,

You are such a supercool mom!
I hope you don't mind, but I'm going to copy your whole 25 days of Christmas idea... in fact, I'll probably just copy most of your ideas for each day as I need to be thinking of these things on the fly!

Here's to a wonderful project... I hope our little monkey will have as much fun with this as I probably am going to have!
Thanks for the GREAT idea Shannon!!! The kids are LOVING it! They are so excited to open up the envelopes with the evenings activities...I am so glad I saw the idea on your blog! We are LOVING the family time! And I am loving blogging about it!!!!!! Have fun with your 25 days of Christmas!!
