Pennsylvania Dutch BOM participants, please go HERE to comment about your finished blocks. The drawing is early Christmas morning, 12/25/09! Good luck!
Have I decorated? No. Am I going to? Probably not. I've been really stressed the past couple of months and, besides, I think a tree might prove too tempting for Penny this year. But I have plans for next year, BIG plans I'm going to decorate every room like I used to. I always had so much fun doing Christmas, and I'm definitely going to get rolling on things early in 2010!
A couple of weeks ago, I found a box on the doorstep addressed to Penny. Seriously! I opened it up and there were small packages wrapped in tissue paper and labeled 1 through 12. She received her own 12 days of Christmas packages from her own secret elf!
So each day she's been opening one package. Before I go to bed at night, I put her package on the coffee table. In the morning after our walk, I grab the camera and turn her loose. She has gotten quite good at unwrapping. OMG, there are toys everywhere! What a sweet secret elf she has! Miss Elf may have created a monster, though. During the year I might have to take some old toys and wrap them up just so she can unwrap them! :)
