    Sounds like a fun filled happy household. Today I steam cleaned my family room carpet, polished all the hardwood floors, scrubbed the bathrooms and just finished baking my pumpkin pie. Funny thing is that the more I do, the more energy I have. Nothing else to do buy sit back and relax. Hubby is convinced we are going to win the powerball lottery on Christmas! Wouldn't that be amazing, hahaha, ok tonight I will dream a wish list just incase we win. Happy Holidays everyone.

    WOW!! 14 people baking cookies, so, where is my care package??? LOL!!

    I'm working on cleaning. I just made the top of the Dining room table re-appear, a feat that happens a few times a year (the curse of smal houses) I bought a fe rubbermaid containers and just threw everything in them!

    Then tomorrow eve, I will start all the prep for Christams Brunch. Most of my dishes can be made or started the eve before, and all I need to do is pop them into the oven on the day of.

    I am skipping cookies. I may make some for New years,but if not, I'm not sweating it.

    So never had brandy in eggnog, only rum. I tin I would like Brandy better!! How about Southern Comfort? I adore that stuff!

    I just finished wrapping my gifts.
    Then I cleaned some mold (yuck) in one of the bathrooms so I got assigned that cleaning duty.
    Now I'm completely done!
    Nancy,
    Where are you at in Az. and where is the family in NM?
    Just curious. My MIL lives near pheonix and of course I'm here in NM.
