HAPPY FRIDAY ALL!
It is my hubs Christmas night out tonight, so thought it would be good to come along & say hi! Though I am working tomorrow, so can't quite do the MegaPost that I would have liked to!
Is everyone all set for Christmas? We still have to get a couple things, and still to wrap everything
. I love wrapping, so looking forward to that!! What are everyone's favourite Christmas films? My favourite is Prancer
. I haven't seen it in years but plan to watch it this year! I also LOVE Home Alone!! LOL. I was sooo gonna be Mrs Culkin when I was wee
Does anyone have any Christmas traditions that they do? I remember speaking about this before, but it is a fun topic! We used to always open 1 present at midnight (after I finished believing in Santa anyway). In the morning, my sister & I would go to my parents room, wake them up, and then we would all take it in turns to go to the bathroom & brush our teeth etc. We wouldn't go into the livingroom until everyone was ready. My dad would go in first, and every year he would say, "oh well, Santa's not been!" - and we laugh and say "haha, yeah he has" LOL. Then we go in & open presents. I absolutely LOVE Christmas!!
This year is gonna be very different. This is the first year EVER that I will not be staying at my parents Christmas Eve (neither is my sister) so we can't do out thing above
). It's sad, but at the same time, it will be nice to make new traditions with my hubs.
Right, a few replies I wanted to say:Desiree -
Sending you some major eHugs girl!! I have saw pictures of you & your family - you ALL look soooo happy! Believe me
, your kids will remember their childhood: they will remember that they had a lovely caring mom & dad who always made sure that they were looked after! Things like, that super cool advent calander you made - they will remember that for sure. I am keeping that idea in mind for when I have kids! And the picture of when you were collecting your tree - gorgeous family! You care - they will remember that.
They may not have cousins nearby, but sometimes your family isn't neccessarily who you are blood-related too - your nearby close friends etc will count too. I consider you guys part of my extended family!
I know you already spoke to me about your son - and please know that if you ever need to chat, just PM me here or on fb, or email. Anytime Girl! I like to think I could do the same to you
I am thinking of you all
Also, karate will be good for your son. It will give him something to focus on, and will give him some confidence. Does he quite enjoy it? I wish I had done something like that when I was wee. What about your daughter? Does she do anything?Sean -
Use your gift card & go see BD2!! It will still be on I'm sure - it is here & Caryn & Susie
seen it recently! Go during the day (before or after work, it doesn't matter), it will be very quiet. You won't regret it! I can't imagine NOT seeing it on the big screen.Marielle -
3 weeks off?? I am JEALOUS!! I usually have the week between Christmas & NY off, but not this year... I have a couple days off, then at work for a couple, then off again for a couple. Bit annoying, but it means I have more holidays for later in the year I guess.
Btw, last night I had a really smutty dream!!!! I very rarely have those! And it wasn't even about my hubs LOL (I told him, so it's fine Hahaha!). It wasn't about a real person, or even a real famous person, but it was very
vidid & I liked it LOL! What does that mean?? Hahahaha!
Hope everything goes ok with the house! I am sure it will!Lynne -
I hope you manage to get some answers from your GP about the MRI. Sorry to hear what you are going through. I know it is tough, but we are all thinking of you. Just remember, a lot of the time they send people for extra tests just to make sure, but more often than not, they turn out to be negative etc. Let us know if you need anything Songbird -
Glad Mr Man enjoyed his play date! And I hope you enjoy your busy weekend ahead!Everyone else -
