Since I'm 3 hours behind some of you (on the clock), I open my email to some wonderful Goodie notices! What a treat! Now, I'm working on send some out too.

I baked biscuits yesterday and we shared them with all the grands that stopped by with their Mom. Steve and I had biscuits with our eggs this morning and there are only two left--just right.

Dec. 4---Exercise to Christmas music today -- CHECK
Dec. 5--do something nice for someone today -- CHECK
Dec. 6--Check in on a Spark friend you have not heard from for a while - CHECK
Dec. 7--if you are out and about, drop something in the Salvation Army kettle. -- CHECK

emoticon on all days -- although not in that exact order -- I remember that I put money in a Salvation Army kettle on the 6th -- and I checked in on a Spark friend I hadn't heard from in awhile -- but I believe that was on the 5th... Anyway -- you get the idea...like Dianne -- I did them but in a more random order...

LOVE this "day by day" thing though -- helps me to keep "little things" in mind EACH day!

This is CRAZY though Cathy -- I SWEAR you are reading my mind of something!! I watched a Christmas movie last night -- BEFORE I saw this challenge thread again!!!!! WEIRD!!! Especially since I hadn't watched a Christmas movie YET this year!!!!

AM probably going to "pass" on today's challenge though -- baking cookies is NOT a "good thing" for me... Besides, I'll have to do that closer to Christmas when my family's coming here -- so will "delay" that one if that's OK....

How about a gift wrapping challenge day??! I NEED to get my gifts wrapped and I have NOT done that yet.... Maybe YOU "challenging" us to do it will help me get it DONE! LOL....
