December 18 2010

All Christmas wrapping is done! Cooked a turkey tonight and will cook another one tomorrow to put in the freezer.

The elves brought some hockey socks for DS and some things for DD's trip (toothpaste, first-aid kit, shampoo, mini-towelettes)

Cleared out the office so it can be turned into a guest room for the holidays.

Unfortunately this year no horse-drawn carriage - the guy only has 1 horse left and he doesn't want to do this anymore. :(

Just some cooking & cleaning left to do.

First gifts will be going out tomorrow to hockey friends.

December 15th

The elves brought Christmas pillowcases for the teens. The pillowcases have pockets with some $ in it.

They were asleep when I left so I'll know tonight how they liked them.

I also made 20 ribbon pockets for small chocolates to give to some friends. I've started counting... and I'll have to do more.

Need to do ribbon pockets to put some small pieces of chocolate in for my friends.

How are you doing?

December 9

The elves arrived with some Christmas lottery tickets this morning. I wasn't there when the kids scratched them... it would be fun if they won a gift :)

The only things left to wrap are the kids gifts & stocking stuffers.

The only thing DONE in baking is the sucre à la crème. Need to do at least 2 more things this weekend.

I'm way off in the food department... but hey there are grocery stores near by if need be.

December 6

This morning the elves arrived with a new Christmas movie 'Miracle on 34th street' the old version. Can't wait to watch it.

Teens were jumping up & down they were so thrilled to have ANOTHE christmas movie! (Not!)

We had DH's company party on the 4th in Beauce. Nice supper & pleasant evening. He's been with the company 30 years, but they reward 15, 25 & 35. At 35 they get a trip (I think it's a vacation credit of 4 000 $).... better start planning! :)
