The Muppets

I just love The Muppets and their Christmas songs. The Twelve Days of Christmas and Miss Piggy singing in such a high tone "Five Gold Wringgggssssss...." She just makes me laugh. I will walk around for hours singing wringggggs. Then they do "We Wish You a Merry Christmas." They say figgy pudding and Piggy says "Piggy Pudding?" In only a way she can say it, they say no made with figs, then you hear a quite and with bacon...haha!!! Then you have Animal in the back saying "Won't Go!" It just is too funny to me. I know your sitting thinking, what the hell is she talking about? But you should really listen to them if you can. They will make you smile.

I have yet to get our Christmas cards done, we still have to do the photo I am just about to throw in the towel and say, no cards this year. Thinking about me, Scott and Syd all getting ready for a photo in front of our tree and timing a photo for all of us to look good about a Christmas Miracle. That is why people send out photos of their family each year, it was a miracle that they made that moment in time happen. You laugh, but I bet it is true.

In a matter of a few hours, Scott and I meet with the new home builder for our pre-construction meeting. We give them $ 900.00 and change for our non-financeable options, so, this provides me to give my husband an insulated garage for Christmas, and I get an upgraded front door with cut glass inlaid. I was hit with a sudden spark of panic on Friday, I called Scott and said, "Hey, since we really both don't need anything and we have to pay this money, why don't we just limit our spending to $ 20.00 for each other. " He laughs, he has already started his shopping for me...your correct in your thinking, I had yet to buy him anything. So, scratch that idea but we did decide to keep the spending to a minimum.

I have purchased all the ingredients for his Grandmothers Nanaimo Bars, this overly rich, gooey, sweet concoction that Scott will eat a whole 9 X 9 of himself. They are so good but I will stay away. I did have a Hello Dolly with chocolate and butterscotch chips this weekend, so I got the ingredients to make those too. At least this is my intention, we will see how far I get with this. I still have gifts for my parents and Scott's family to buy, and ship. I know everyone else is fighting the same battle. Each year same thing, you would think we would learn.

I just have one word for you:


(And yeah--I'll take the 27 days and then Syd's birthday can be extra special 'cuz it will be the only day left in February!)

The closer Christmas comes and the less and less prepared I am for it, the more I am buying into this Decebuary thing.

Where do I sign for my extra 2 days?!
