My Countdown to Christmas: 8 Days & Counting…

This weekend was a great one. EP flew in for a visit and to help celebrate my middle child’s birthday.  We took Zay to a Pelicans game in the city.  My son was really stoked about going and he thoroughly enjoyed the game.  He also was able to score a picture with the New Orleans Pelican Dance Team; you go boy!  We couldn’t keep the kid from blushing. 
My two guys was able to get me to the mall on Saturday.  I hate going to the mall around Christmas time.  Don’t get me wrong, I love shopping but not when the stores are overcrowded and people are pushing and shoving.  It is something about being in tight places with a lot of people as well as the darn heat is on explode in the stores, that I just can’t handle.  However, I was able to get two gifts off of my list. My brother maybe impressed this year; two down, MANY to go.

My Countdown to Christmas: 13 Days & Counting…

It was a wonderful day in the office today.  We had a divisional office party; our department is divided into three different divisions.  We got together, played the “White Elephant Gift Exchange” game and watched “Home Alone”.   Pizza, chips, drinks, popcorn, fruits and presents were all available. 

This was our message for our White Elephant Gift Exchange:
White Elephant gift is never purchased. Just look throughout your house, your garage, a dumpster, or any other area to find something that just begs to be passed on to a more appreciative recipient.  Also, remember to use a little caution in selecting the appropriate gift for the office environment, but not so much as to lessen the festive nature of this event.

My Countdown to Christmas: 14 Days & Counting…

Alright, so we had a blast last night at our company’s Christmas party.  My cousin and I arrived a little late, because we were playing dress up.  Also, my son was entertaining us and kept us laughing and avoiding the clock; I guess he wanted us to stay with him, lol!  
My coworkers and I discussed the night before over coffee.  The food was amazing.  They had meat pies, crawfish pies, fried fish and chicken, duck wrapped in bacon, shrimp, fruit, a cheese spread and fudge balls.  All and all everyone had a wonderful time and really appreciated our bosses for doing this.

My Countdown to Christmas: 15 Days & Counting...

Well, today was rather slow.  I began to do some internet shopping; browsing!  I looked at computer my daughter put on her shopping list. My eldest wants the new X-Box One. Let’s not forget, my middle one wants the new Jordans. All I want is…well, I’ll get back to you on that one. 
Cupcakes and treats are starting to lurk the hallway at work.  Tonight is our first Christmas party, outside of our building.  Being that EP is in Atlanta I invited my cousin to tag along with me as my plus one.  Actually, EP insisted that I ask her to be my plus one; gotta love that man, right?   Looking forward to the party tonight; this girl loves to “play dress up”. 

Christmas Quote:

Christmas is forever, not just one day.  It’s for loving, for sharing, for giving…not to be put away like bells and light and tinsel…The good you do for others, is the good you do for yourself! ~ Norman Wesley Brookn

My Countdown to Christmas: 16 Days & Counting...

Today I received my first Christmas card for 2013.  It was very touching and I wasn’t expecting anything from this sender.  I fell into the Christmas spirit right then.  So, I decided to share all my Countdown to Christmas activities and craziness; you know me there is much craziness.  I will share the things I receive and the preparations for Christmas.  Hope you all enjoy and comment freely.

My Christmas card details. It's a must share:
This Christmas, as you consider all the awesome things that have come to you through Jesus, God’s perfect gift, remember that it is but a taste of all the good things that are yet to come.

Happy Holidays!
