You better watch out!

December is always such a fun and busy month. We have enjoyed a school choir concert, our ward party, dance parties, and work parties. Dathan's company always has a nice sit down dinner for the adults and then the next week a family party with what has to be the "real" Santa. Not just one of those helpers like at the mall.
Johnny wasn't sure what he wanted and told Santa to surprize him.

Loni told Santa she wanted a Nintendo DS. When he asked what color she said blue. Blue???? Santa just assumed she would want pink. I hope the elves are able make an exchange.Jalen decided not to sit on Santa's lap. So Santa got off of his chair and came and sat on Jalen's lap.
We had a great night. And now we are just waiting for the special day to arrive.
This week I decided not to post any jobs. I just figure we all need to spend our time getting EVERYTHING ready by this Friday. I want to have it ALL done before the kids are out of school. Then maybe next week we can spend out time looking for opportunities to serve and help others.
After all....isn't that what Christmas is all about?

Monday Madness

Okay, I am back and ready to start organizing my house again. Thanks for all the great feedback. I love knowing that we are doing this together. Remember only spend 10-15 minutes doing one task each day. Easy huh?

#1 the top of the refridgerator ( I had a request for that one)
#2 the silverware drawer
#3 one shelf in the pantry
#4 your make-up bag/drawer
#5 the junk drawer-you know pencils, scissors, tape, etc.

Empty, wipe, sanitize, and only put back what you need.
Have fun. I know I will.

Already December?

Well it's true, Thanksgiving has come and gone. I am so grateful however for such a wonderful holiday. I have so many blessings in my life. Don't we all?

Our Thanksgiving day was just wonderful. A day filled with family, fun and food. For a complete run down I am going to send you over to my moms blog. She was able to document the events of the day perfectly.

Okay I know I have been slacking on my Monday Madness lists. So today I am giving you one assignment for this week and then Monday I will be back at it.

Are you ready??

It has been one week since Thanksgiving. Today you need to get rid of the rest of the leftovers. It's time to either finish them off for dinner OR feed them to the dog. While you are at it clean out the fridge. Wipe down the shelves then spray and wipe the outside. Don't forget the door handles. Ours are always sticky and grimy.

Okay you got it. Good luck I will be back on Monday.
