specialmom I think my WhOLE family is have a rough time.  But we'll be 'back' to normal (Our normal, probably not REAL normal) soon enough.  Yes, Anniebrooke, it is funny how a cottage you think is a bit yucky can grow on you.  Nothing like scrubbing floors when

specialmom when on vacation, right?  I washed the cabinets, the walls, the baseboards, inside drawers, windows, etc.  I was pretty sparkly by the time I got done with it.

specialmom It IS fun.   I went to a fancy party Friday night which I don't do often and that took a lot out of me. LOL  And then I had to fight the urge to just wish Christmas were over the next day.  Hopefully today is better.  I'm baking the cookies today!

Barb135 Did my cookies the other day... I can send you some... lol  Try an extra B-12 pill to see if that helps make it any easier. All too soon the boys will be grown and won't care about the effort put into it, so you'll want them to remember "this" Christmas.

AnnieBrooke I blew off my sister-in-law & family for the 22nd, husband had invited them over and said "We can just throw in a turkey!"  Was he NUTS?  I haven't even done Christmas shopping yet, thanks to the Nutcracker.  Told her we could do it Christmas night.

AnnieBrooke She was actually fine with that, and her husband was pleased b/c there would not be madhouse traffic.  I'm glad because by the 25th, everything is done, Santa has come, cards sent, etc.  A good time for a party!

AnnieBrooke We did "The Nutcracker" with 75 2nd-graders last night.  Seven devoted, hard-working backstage mommies shooing kids on and off stage, keeping them quiet when they were waiting, keeping them from playing with the props, etc.  They were cute and awful. :)

AnnieBrooke Cute, because kids dressed like toy soldiers, dolls, elves and fairies are adorable, and were all SO THRILLED to be in the play.  Awful because it was such a crummy adaptation of The Nutcracker.  For one thing, there was no nutcracker.  lol

You gotta love the husband and his 'stealth' ways.  I hid a Christmas gift on the fly for my boys in the laundry room and husband comes out with it asking loudly to me with kids right there "what's this?".  Duh.  It's a freaking christmas gift.  yeesh Dec 13 - 20

nursegirl6572 St Nick is a new thing to me, I had never heard of it.  Is that the one where you leave shoes outside?  Maybe I'm thinking of something else, lol.  Today we're decorating, and if there's time, we're going to make our gingerbread house!  YAY!

specialmom People do st. nick different ways but yes, it's the traditional shoe thing.  I didn't grow up with it either but my husband did.  They always did stockings on St. Nick day.  We used to go to my sister's for Christmas eve and my aunt's on Christmas day.

specialmom So I like a day of full family time to celebrate the season when you are festive and that was what St. Nick's became at our house.  I make a big dinner and it is like a mini Christmas that is just us.  Now we just do my Aunt's mid day so we have the EVE

specialmom just us now, but we still make a big ta do out of St. Nick's day.  My hubby loved it growing up as a kid and my kiddos do too.  It's all fun.  We have a good time with our family traditions.  I do most of the behind the scenes work though.  THAT is tiring

Dee1956 I love reading all the comments.  My Mom said they would just be going to bed from playing Santa, putting up the tree and we would run into their bedroom.  I don't know how they did it. :)
