Christmas is under a week away are you ready? I am not, I still have a few presents to buy and the wrapping of presents to be done. My tree is up and decorated, and the house is tidy. I have been really bad I haven't posted my Christmas cards yet. I love Christmas, especially seeing the excitement on the kids faces when the tree goes up and presents appear under the tree.

This has worked really well and we have a great time together. We alternate each year between my sister's home and my niece's home.
