52 days...

That's how long we have until Christmas moms! Seven and a half short weeks to shop. Usually I am ahead of the game here and have already purchased a lot of gifts. Not this year. And it's starting to give me chest pains. I feel a big anxiety attack coming on in the near future. Yes, 52 days sounds like plenty of time, but mini#1 tracks out of school for five weeks beginning December 5! That's around the corner so I definitely want to have the minis purchases made by then. I am proud of one purchase for mini#1 I found yesterday at Target. He's back into Lego's, but he's more about designing buildings/ houses than airplanes/rockets that you usually see. He may be my future architect! Anyway, it's a beach house and so cute. He'll love it. And it was only $28.99! Some of those Lego kits are $50, $80 or more! Crazy for a bunch of plastic pieces I will inevitably painfully step on while barefoot or will constantly try to avoid with the vacuum.



Now, if I dare back track to Halloween. It was a great night. The minis went out with Mr. Pink, some other dads and their minis. They brought home a ton of candy while I stayed at home and made sure to get rid of every last piece of ours! Unfortunately mini#2 is home from preschool today with a cold and that croupy cough again. The cold air wasn't the best for him Friday night, but you can't deprive a kid from trick-or-treating! I hope everyone had a great weekend. It sure was beautiful, sunny and warm, in the south the rest of our weekend.



Mini#1 is a gangster, not a pimp by the way!

OH MY GOSH!!!! They're adorable! That's the cutest blue ranger I've ever seen! I'm glad you guys had a great time. Don't remind me about Christmas. I've bought a few things for the boys. Halo action figures. They SO want them. I can't stand paying $60.00 for 6 action figures, but I did. Oh well...
Have a great day!

Love the Lego set. That's sure to be a hit. I've GOT to get going on Christmas...I'm still at a loss as to what to buy this year.

Any party plans yet?
