Hells Bells are coming today
Today my grandchildren from Laguna Beach are coming!
I'll step back and take a look at my nice, orderly, clean house...BECAUSE,by 6pm tonight all bets are off....toys,luggage,cups,Goldfish,clothes,bikes,trucks,dolls,..well, you get the picture..will be everywhere.
I just hope that this time that aren't sick. The last three visits they have been sick. Oh well,we'll roll with the punches.
I have some last minute fresh fruit to buy and "grandma I need Chocolate milk" to get. The presents are finally all wrapped, and now I have to hide them. I never thought my son would do the Santa thing....but I guess being a father changes a lot of your previous held thinking.
Baby Finn is being baptised this Sunday......I am so happy that he is being baptised so early in his life,unlike his cousins who I had to do the Archie Bunker thing to. When they finally told us they were being baptised...I said...I took care of that already. I didn't even get in trouble..can you believe it...They even laugh about it now. But they did get baptised in church with "real" water.
What is it about children that makes hoildays...especially Christmas so wonderful? Is it simply wonder itself? Or is it that we get to visit our own childhood again?
I hope to still blog all week..even if its' at 2am.....so I'll be checking all my favorite friends...that's you....so fear not...someone out there will read if you post....If you don't post....have a wonderfilled,magical,Christ centered Christmas...and if you do not follow any religious practice....I wish you a family filled, warm...inside and out...wonderfilled...holiday with those you love!
Blessings and Merry Christmas
