Thursday Thirteen ed 9

Since you asked...13 things I need to get done before Christmas

1…. My Thursday Thirteen
2. Wrap all the presents for the family we are helping, my own family, "Free Christmas" gift exchange at my parents and my husbands parents.
3. Cook Lasagne for company on Saturday and pies (pumpkin, pumpkin pecan, pecan and dutch apple), baked yams, green bean casserole, rolls, salad for Christmas Eve day with my family, and figure out what I need to bring to Christmas dinner with hubby's family on Christmas Day.
4. Finish finding places for the pile of junk on the kitchen table (There's no good place for a pile of junk)
5. Scrub the kitchen floor and bathroom floors (save till last cause everyone knows they only stay clean for about 1 to 10 minutes)
6. Reclean the entire house that we have been cleaning all week but you know how fast that goes down hill.
7. Buy gift certificates for the family we are helping this Christmas.
8. Find my niece the assessories to the toy I bought her, cause of course they do not COME WITH IT! ARGH
9. Find the lighted outdoor Christmas tree and get it plugged in becasue everyone on our street has one and I like to feel like I belong.
10. Count the presents, cost of the presents, number of the presents and size of the presents to make sure everything is as fair as possible
11. Get the stocking stuffers ready to go in the stockings
12. Finish putting thank you notes and small presents in the advent calendar for the remaining days before Christmas.
13. Take a deep breath and resolve to do more of this in NOVEMBER next year!

You will be busy. I have to rebake cookies and pies because the kids and I ate everything allready. And what we didn't eat we gave away. Oh my! Hope you find the accesories for your niece, that's a tough one.
