The week before Christmas and all through the house... it looks a lot like Christmas as things got done. I hosted a wrapping folding party. We got it all wrapped. I wrapped large boxes to put individual families into so I don't have to dig around finding everyone's gifts. Just take that one large box and off quick as a whip out the door to having fun visiting one and all.
I got the pleasure to go to the Smokey Mountains with a friend of mine. She got two free tickets to Dollywood. Her DH could not get off of work. Her DD needed her car, so she had to invite someone that had a car. I was blessed to be that friend. Her parents have a time share. We got to stay with them for the cost of a meal that we cooked there in the condo. For $10, 5 days and 4 nights in the mountains. SCORE!! We went to Dollywood after 6pm so we got in the next day too. DOUBLE SCORE!! We got to spend time in the hot tub. TRIPLE SCORE!! We did lots of shopping. I got awesome deals at a HUGE scrap booking store. .05 paper. Some of the paper was double sided for only .05 cents. WOO HOO!!! I've got projects lined up and waiting to be done.
We stopped on the way home by the camp ground we will be going to in June. We picked out out site. We got home in time to go to our Sunday School party. We had a great time there too. I didn't count my calories while gone. I've been off on them anyway. I didn't see the point in it.
We burst trained while there. Walk, walk, walk then sit to drive to walk, walk, walk. I had a wonderful time. We got home late Friday. I went to her house on Saturday to scrapbook for a couple of hours. Once I and my family got home, I called my sister. We went to her house to celebrate Christmas at her new home. We had another great time. Our husbands even got a long. Feeling blessed. We are going to see the Hobbit today. DH won a movie gift card at the company Christmas party. My DS is going to pay for my DD ticket as her Christmas present. She doesn't have any money due to the bird vet bill. The bird must have missed me as she is sitting on my shoulder pruning my hair as I type this.
Feeling blessed this holiday season.
