How many times have you gone through your physical and mental list of everything you need for Christmas? I can’t even count how many. But it never fails. The kids fly through their presents in the morning, pick out what they want to play with first and than say, “Mom, I need batteries.”

You run to the kitchen and dig through the drawer only to find two batteries when you need three. That leads to a rush trip, in lounge pants, to the convenience or drug store to buy overpriced Duracells.

I’m making it a goal to be prepared this year. (BTW, I’m also including a list of how many and what type of batteries the hot toys need.)

I just want to love on the kids all day and not leave the house. Enjoy the holiday. I have a tendency to get caught up in cooking or cleaning up or whatever chore. Not going to do it this year. Stop and smell the Frasier Fir.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everybody. Thanks for reading and sharing in my blog. I appreciate you all.
