Thursday Thirteen #13

Thirteen preparations for the holidays.
1. Buy a turkey, hopefully one that is on sale.
2. Buy all the ingredients for all the side dishes
3. Bought a new Christmas tree, one that already has lights and decorations. Costco had some real pretty ones that were not too expensive.  What a time saver!
4. Clean the house and put up decorations.
5. Buy the Christmas presents.
6. Wrap the Christmas presents.
7. Mail packages to out of town relatives.
8. Complete Christmas baking, cookies, fudge, popcorn balls.
9. Dig out the Christmas music. We have enough CDs with variety that we do not tire of the Christmas music.
10. Write Christmas cards.  I enjoy getting the Christmas cards especially the ones with a Christmas letter.
11. Remember to be thankful for all past Christmas holidays that make up wonderful memories.
12. Prepare for the office Christmas party with a white elephant gift and a gift for the gift exchange.
13. Make the traditional oyster stew for Christmas Eve dinner and leftsa for Christmas day dinner.

You sound so organized! I love writing out Christmas cards (or reading those received) while singing along to the Christmas music. Have fun preparing for the upcoming holidays!

Speaking of Christmas cards:

Goodluck in tackling the busiest season of the year!

Happy TT!

Brenda ND said...

Yep, your list sounds pretty much like mine. Happy TT!

Terra said...

Nicola O. said...

I like your list! I found myself nodding along saying yep, done that, started that, oops, forgot that, better get on it...

Hi, cool list! I love Christmas baking! I also love Christmas songs! I don't really like fake trees though, even though I have one. It comes pre-lit, but I like decorating it. An subscription is a subscription that allows you to get a certain amount of audio books a month. The books are downloadable mp3 files, that you can put on almost any player, or burn to CD, or listen on the computer. I would exchange links, but I probably have about the same amount, (or less) traffic than you do, my google pagerank is 0, and that's because (right now,) I really don't care about it. When I start to monatize though, I will need to change that.

Thanks for stopping by my page and for leaving a comment on my Thursday Thirteen entry. I wish I could help you with the crochet pattern, but I can't follow a pattern to save my life. LOL. I just kind of make things up as I go along. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Good luck with finding your pattern.

Please stop by my page anytime.

God Bless you and your son.
