The month of December is always very busy for us. I just finished filling out the month of December on our little calendar. I put on there the things I could readily remember, but I know I will need to go back and add more stuff. I just can't remember everything right now.
So, this is what our calendar looks like. What do you have on YOUR calendar for December? :)
by Shelly126November 29, 2012 at 3:28 PMFinishing up the Christmas decorating and shopping which was started after thanksgiving around here, shopping and planning for my twin boys birthday in the beginning of the month, their party which this year will be a small family party @ our house, baking, planning and shopping for Christmas dinner which we will host @ our house as we always do. A few Holiday parties and a visit with BIL, SIL & their kids a few days after Christmas so we can celebrate with them and all the kids can see each other.
Well, you sound very busy. Good luck with the birthday party. :)

Don't knock the month being slow. I love Christmas and Yule, but it can get crazy. I would like a day or two where we can just chill, build a fire, and stare at the tree you know? That calendar is filling up FAST. I like the activities because they are fun, but sometimes I think we get ourselves into too many things.
I hope that your family has a safe trip, and that you all have a great time during their visit.
