So much to do and so little time left!!...Do you feel that way??..I do...I have cleaned, shopped,done laundry, and packed today...We're heading out in the morning to Northwest Georgia, actually Trenton, GA....It is in the fartherest corner of the state as you can get...You go too far one way and you're in Tennessee and too far the other and you are in Alabama...It is nestled between two mountains...Sand Mountain and Lookout Mountain...Tim grew up there and I spent my summers and holidays there visiting my grandparents, aunt, and uncles,and cousins,etc...We will spend time with Tim's side tomorrow and then head back to my parent's in Cartersville, GA tomorrow night...Then on Monday we will be heading back to Chattanooga,TN for some shopping and Calhoun,GA for outlet mall shopping...Monday night we will be getting together with my side of the family at my parent's...Tuesday we will hang out with my family and head back home probably that afternoon or evening...

This will be our 2nd Christmas Day in our home since moving away from family 13 years ago...Our first was 2 years ago when Luke was born the month before and I think we slept through that one because it is a blurr..HA!...Taylor always wants to be at home, so this year we will be...On Christmas Eve we always go to Cracker Barrell for breakfast/lunch...That is our tradition we started years back when Taylor was small...And if we're with family then whoever can get off to go goes with us...But if we're back home this year then it will just be us...

I have to get the gifts all wrapped...I haven't done that yet this year...I sooo wanted to wrap them and put them under the tree, but I didn't want Luke unwrapping them 2 minutes after I put them there..HA!...And I still have to get some stockings sewed...UGH!!!...Luke doesn't have a x-stitched one like the ones we've used since Taylor was a baby, so I want new ones so his will match,too...Actually I want primitive ones anyway..HA!

I also went grocery shopping today...It was crazy out there!!...I usually go on Monday, so I went and got everything so I won't have to go back til the Monday after Christmas...I got ingredients for our special Christmas breakfast ....I'm so excited!!...I've wanted to make special things for Christmas Day, but we're never here!...

So I will be off the computer and I won't be able to blog til we get back...I feel the withdrawals already!!...But I will take pictures and maybe I will bring some goodies back with me to share with you...I want to go to the antique store my sister and I always go to..I always find something there...So I will miss you all and I will catch up when I get back....I'm not sure what just happend that my letters got fancy...ha!..But I like it!!

UPDATE!!!...Oh and I just want to let everyone know I have rerouted my emails to my aol addy...When you click on the little house on the left side of my blog they no longer go to my Knology addy...For some reason I'd email back and some of the emails weren't being received or I was getting emails saying they were having trouble getting their emails to go through...So if you emailed me and you haven't received a response back then email me again please....I would never want to offend someone or hurt your feelings by not responding to your emails...I sooooo appreciate all the emails with compliments, questions about my x-stitch, orders, and just to chat...I have met so many new friends!!

So Merry Christmas my friends!!...I hope you have a blessed week and I will hopefully post as soon as we get back on maybe Tuesday or Christmas Eve...hugs,Jen
