The last weekend before Christmas will of course be spent doing the last of the Christmas shopping, wrapping, and mailing off the last batch of cards. I have some Christmas cookies that may or may not get frosted. I hope to finish what is left to prepare for Christmas so I can relax and enjoy next week without any hassle.
Tonight is the big trip to the mall with Lyds and Jon. Lydia will choose a gift, from her, for mom, dad, and Jonny. She wants to also pick out her own gift but I told her Jonny will be buying a gift for her. She said, "But Jonny can't pick it out mom." I told her I would help him. She's pretty excited for tonight because we were going to do this shopping trip on Wednesday evening but a meltdown ensued instead. Yesterday morning she marched right into school and told her teachers she was going to be good so she could go to the mall to buy presents. I reminded her we couldn't go shopping until Friday and surprisingly, she was OK with that.
