Man, this year I have been so bad about decorating...it's my favorite time, but with work and kids, including a darling little miss who is into everything, I have been lagging! I've only taken 1 box out, and we don't have our tree yet...nor did we get tickets in time for the Polar Express, nor have we made our gingerbread house (still in the box), nor have I done any of the traditions I so badly wanted to start...the Jesse Tree, the read a Christmas book a night thing, etc...

I've been in a little funk lately, and being sick really threw me for a loop. I need to buck up and remember 2009 will be another year. I am truly blessed, so I need to count my blessings everyday! Luckily the kiddos are too young to remember this as the year Christmas started late, right??? At least some of the gifts are bought! Trying to cut back on the commercialism of Christmas and remember the season. Blogs like http://www.simplemom.net/ and http://www.almostfrugal.com/ are great places to get ideas. I am trying to limit my time on the computer, too. Losing all my bazillion bookmarks (fav web sites) was good, I think...I am only looking at a few sites now. Of course, I will be happy to share any cool ones I come across. :-)

Anyway, it's off to bed for me...will post some pics...have been badddd about taking pics lately....

Thanks for the link! I'm glad you find my blog helpful, although I'll be the first to admit that at times I just want to put my head down and make it to January 2nd!
