~ There is limited parking at the mall and once inside you want to run out the door really quickly. Luckily I only have one more gift to buy at a mall in Edmonton. Then I can stay far away if I choose to. I really don't have many gifts to buy these days so it really isn't much of a burden.
~ The SNL Christmas special showed up on television the other night. I've seen it many times before but I still laugh.
~ Chocolate is trying to overtake my world. I love the stuff but am trying to limit my intake. It is tough with the delicious ads I see on television each night, not to mention the free Lindt sample at Costco! I can't say no to free chocolate. LOL
~ List making is in full force. Today's list was the meal plan for our Winter Solstice celebration. This year we are having prize winning Fife n' Deckle pie and an ice-cream cake from the Dairy Queen for dessert. I'm also making the girls their favourite Christmas squares from when they were little.
~Furniture has been rearranged to accommodate two trees this year. They'll go up this weekend so more on that later. All I can say is that the little bird tree has grown this year. It has been replaced with a 7 foot pencil tree. I'm so excited to decorate it!
~A touch of red has been added to last month's winter decor. Now it's looking more festive!
Thomas did point out that Uncle Rob forgot to put the grey brick on an angle. Good thing Rob will have Tom's guidance throughout the month because he may need it. ;)
