Randomness, it's all randomness...

So today is one of those days that you just have once in awhile, or weekly in my case!  My head is swirling with everything that I need to finish for church, for home, for Christmas, for {insert the blank}.  But I am not feeling overwhelmed, I am feeling excited and happy.

*Tonight is Molly's 1st ever Holiday Program she has ever been a part of .  I am so anxious to see her sing and be merry on stage with a zillion other little 4 and 5 year olds.   
*I am almost finished Christmas shopping, we literally have one more thing to get, I am pretty sure, and maybe one exchange for something else but we are almost finished.
*Not that we don't every year, but this year we really put a lot of thought into most gifts, or at least tried to, so I am really excited for people to open their presents.  Especially since we don't have a million dollars or hundreds to spend, we really tried hard to make what we got meaningful.
*I can not believe I am about to go get supplies for church on January 1st...what?!  I feel like it still is the beginning of December or something.
*We have had one little snow so far this year, and nothing in site for Christmas either here or in Ohio, where we will be.  It doesn't feel like Christmas without snow!
*Speaking of Christmas...not to start a debate or be all PC on you, but it truly, 100% does not bother me that people say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas...gasp, what.  Nope, I am not bothered one bit by it, and really, I am tired of hearing about it.  I look at it this way, Christmas and New Years are so close together it's easier to say "Holiday" then Merry Christmas and Happy New Years, kill 2 birds with one stone.  And no, they are not always taking Christ out of Christmas...okay, off my soapbox...but seriously y'all, not trying to offend any of you, just needed to get that off my chest.
*I am loving Pinterest...I tried to not succumb to it, I tried staying away, but I am so glad I didn't!  I am pretty realistic with my crafting/sewing abilities, so I don't get that sucked in with trying to make things, but it is fun to see what others are making!
*Lucy was caught slapping a baby in the Nursery yesterday and she tackled a 3 year old and took her baby doll.  My word!  To her defense, she likes baby dolls and she has never really been around a little baby before.  I told you she was a bully!
*I am working on my goals for 2012.  I always try and say "lifestyle changes" but I think I need some goals now!  One is a big one for me, like a physical thing that I keep telling myself "you are aiming way too high!"  But I can't get it out of my head!
*I hope and pray you all have a great Christmas/Holiday season :) 

Hopefully tomorrow I will be back with pictures and maybe video of Molly!

LOL about Lucy! :D I can't wait to hear about Molly's Christmas program. I bet she will look so cute! I feel the same way about "Happy Holidays", but I've actually caught myself from telling people that I hope they have a happy holiday because I thought they might think I was trying to be PC, when really like you said, it's just all inclusive. Ha! I'm still trying not to give in to Pinterest yet, but I know it won't be long before I do. LOL!

Hilarious about Lucy!
Way to go on your Christmas shopping! We have a couple more things to get, and then we'll be done...except for wrapping :)
Can't wait to see pictures of Molly's program!

I bet Molly will do great in her program! :)I Can't wait to see! We only have like 2 things to get yet and we'll prolly get them this wk sometime.

It doesn't bother me either on the whole happy holidays either.

Pinterest is great for DIY tutorials!

Oh goodness Lucy!

BAHAHAHA about Lucy! That is hilarious! Definitely gave me a good laugh first thing in the morning!

I also feel the exact same way about the Happy Holidays! When I was younger I can remember saying it referring not only to Christmas but to New Years as well, just like you said.

I've been seeing more of your pins pop up on Pinterest lately! It's so addictive!

Lucy is a bully?! No way...she just knows what she wants. Lol!

I can't wait to hear how Molly's program went & see pics! I keep hearing about all these kids having Christmas programs, so now I'm bummed that Trevor didn't have one. :(

Glad you are almost done shopping. We're finishing up on the 22nd!

You totally cracked me up with your Happy Holidays shpiel! I don't think I've heard many people tell me Happy Holidays lately.

Lol on Lucy! Liv is my tough cookie. She bites, pinches, pushes and slaps and not with randoms. Just her sisters! Haha!
