Writing a post instead of folding laundry

Keeping it real: I am totally avoiding the mountain of laundry sitting next to the Christmas tree. It's seriously like three feet tall. Call it procrastination if you will, avoidance even, I think I shall choose to call it pacing myself. That works, right? I mean, the nature of laundry is that there will always be dirty laundry to wash then clean clothes to fold, so really I'm just pacing myself, because I know that there is a never ending loop of laundry. lather, rinse, repeat. Right? 

I am so looking forward to Christmas yet wanting it to take a while to get here still. I love the magical, reverent feeling of this time of year. However, the jumping up and down and constant asking of how many days until Christmas have me ready for it to arrive. Plus, I am super duper extra excited about seeing my mom. That being said though, I have nothing wrapped nor made yet. You see, this year we decided that we were making all of the adults gifts, it's nothing much, but made by K and I. I'm super excited to give Ainsley one of her gifts, I asked Clara if she could make a special shirt for Ainsley and it came out perfect. I will have to share pics after she gets it, homegirl is going to be sooooo excited. 

We are supposed to be getting some snow tonight. The kids and I are beyond excited! Snow! finally, Lee is hoping that there will at least be enough to make a snowball. I also saw that we might actually have a white Christmas. Yippee!!!

I realized last night that we still haven't watched A Christmas Story yet. We also haven't watched Polar Express. We have watched Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman. Any Christmas classic must-watches for you?

Okay, I've procrastinated enough, time to tackle the laundry.

  1. I MUST watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas (both animated AND Jim Carrey version), Ebbie (Susan Lucci), Comfort and Joy (Nancy McKeon), A Charlie Brown Christmas, A Garfield Christmas, Christmas Vacation. I would like to watch It's a Wonderful Life every year, but Dave HATES it, so I usually don't get to watch it. I forget to watch when I'm home during the day alone. Maybe I'll do that tomorrow. We'll see. I've yet to see A Christmas story. EVERY SINGLE YEAR I vow that this is going to be the year. And it always gets by me. I can't watch Polar Express. It makes me cold.
    I'm also SO excited for snow. I was giddy when I found out it was coming. My snow blower and boots are all ready :-)
