it's almost Christmas


I've been working a ton at The Gap lately with Christmas creeping up so fast. I really love it and it's great for Jeff to have more time alone with the boys.
Every night that I don't work, I take them for a drive to see Christmas light displays. Around 5-5:30 Hudson always asks "Santa Beep, Santa Beep"...that's his way of asking to go see Santa and the Jeep. There is one house that has a Jeep Wrangler on risers with a huge blow-up Santa holding reigns to his reindeer that are on the rooftop. They just love it. It is at the end of a street where every single house is decorated with lights and tons of yard ornaments. It definitely is a must-see for us. I'm sure they'll be sad soon when it all disappears after the holidays.

Today is Hudson's last day of preschool before break. It's just a fun day - a little field trip to our movie theater. All of the kids get to go behind the concession stand to see how it works and then watch some movie trailers. They even get a free drink and popcorn to watch the trailers. I think the only time I've taken him to the movies was when he was an infant. Griffin gets to come along too. I'm sure they will have a blast.

Tuesday we brought a variety of home-made chocolates (peanut butter balls, golden grahams/marshmallow clusters, and peppermint bark) to all of his teachers and his 4th grade reading buddy, along with a special card just from him.
He made the gingerbread man a week ago with his buddy.

Right now at DST there are a few very interesting threads that I keep checking on. I've added a reply here or there too (raising your sons, cake balls, & other holiday treats)

OAKS has been down for a few days now. I'm feeling a little homeless at times, as well as many others. I'm sure Victoria has one huge headache too. Please be patient. Hopefully it won't be too much longer. At least the store and the blog are still accessible and we're able to add new goodies for your shopping pleasure.

I have been continuing to add goodies to my Gotta Pixel almost every day. YAY!

That sounds a great trip for the kids - to the cinema. A job in Gap - hmm....wonder would I manage to bring home any pay, or would I just spend it all. I would probably still owe Gap at the end of the week!!
