Perhaps I went to bed TOO early

I awoke at 12:45 AM - WIDE AWAKE! I have to be to work at 5 AM and it's just now 1:34 AM... going to make for a VERY long day. I turned the A/C on to remove some of the humidity in the house, started a pot of coffee and have read blog updates. So many are doing such creative things for the Holidays and are creating such fond memories with their families. I'm looking forward to creating some of my own. After work today I will be purchasing a few more little things for a couple projects using mostly items I all ready have here at home - things to make the end results more personal. I'm thinking there will be a lot more coffee in this day.

Our tree as it is today
I will be baking a cherry pie to take to my Moms' on Sunday but that will happen tomorrow - today will be strictly gift making after work. I will be picking the mustard greens from our garden and will also cook them ahead of time to take to my Moms' and we will be taking the fully cooked ham that Scott received from his work at Thanksgiving that we froze since his Mom had made a Turkey. I am also planning to make some of my sour cream biscuits once we get to Moms' on Sunday.

My Mom has put in a request for a new family photo so I will have to see if my sister-in-law can come over and take a few of the 3 of us in front of our Christmas tree tomorrow. I can print one off for my Mom before we leave and perhaps some for my siblings as well. Perhaps our Kitties will join us in the photo - I won't press my luck with having the 2 dogs in it as well... that could end looking like a creepy Halloween photo with all the blood that would be drawn by the cats. ; )

Talk about leaving a bunch to do until the last minute - SO ME!
