It’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

By Georgia Osten
Yep, my days are numbered. I’m facing the countdown, not too stressed anymore. Well, maybe a little … I’m still waiting on 2 Christmas items to be delivered from MacKenzie Childs. These are items which were apparently shipped on November 27? Go figure! MacKenzie told me this morning that one item was dropped off at the Post Office by UPS on Dec. 9th. Interesting, when MC absolutely wouldn’t take a PO Box ?? That, and I’m a little baffled, “why would UPS be dropping off stuff at the PO?” Oh well, I do have one more day – Monday to finish getting the rest of my Christmas presents.

I’m looking forward to the next few days, it’s going to be very interesting. My Saturday began quite normal, got to sleep in, then I began wrapping presents where I left off last night. I was informed I needed to write my Sand Bucket on Saturday, due to all the upcoming events. A little strange, because I don’t usually start my Sand Bucket until Monday, the night before it’s published.

Tomorrow morning, we’ll head to Galveston for an early breakfast with The Middles and their parents. The Middles’ parents are heading off for a Much Deserved Date Night. My Son-in-Law is in the Army and has been on tour on a special assignment for 6 months. The homecoming occurred on Thursday, three days earlier than the kids expected to see their Dad. It was so emotional and heartfelt, not to mention a BIG SURPRISE.

The Middles will stay with us on Sunday night, then on Monday, we’ll head to our Son’s in Friendswood for an early Christmas with their whole family, that’s The Littles and their other Grands, Aunts, Uncles and cousins. Whew!

Monday night will be Santa’s and Mrs. Claus’ getaway to our Home Away From Home. We’ll have the whole day Christmas Eve to ourselves, Midnight Mass at 5pm, then probably more cooking or baking.

Christmas Day will be in League City at The Olders’ house. The Olders are our college kids, Emma and Grant. That day will begin a bit later. You see, The Olders need their sleep – it’s been a long time since they woke up with Fairy Dust in their eyes in hopes that St. Nicolas had been there.

I’ll go ahead and make blueberry muffins, which has been my tradition for as long as I can remember.

We’ll be visiting you all one more time before the New Year.
So, on this Christmas Eve, we all wish you a Very Merry Christmas.
