Getting Down to The Wire

I realized today I have no idea when I am going to have a chance to do my Christmas shopping. I certainly do not want to do it with Miss Peanut Butter. I don't think I could handle the madness. I am trying to order as much as I can from amazon so I don't have to leave the house. I do have 5 hours on the 23rd when I could possibly eek some time in, but I figured it might take me that long to assemble the play kitchen for PB and  hide the monster. I may have to make a run this weekend after work. Save me from the madness that is weekend shopping. That is the one perk of not having weekends off is shopping on days when the masses aren't. I have 6 more working days before vacation. I am excited to do all the holiday stuff. Peanut Butter is way excited for Santa and Nana to visit.
I took PB to Princess and the Frog Saturday. It was pretty good. I missed a bit when PB decided she wanted to walk around the theater. I was surprised for opening weekend that there was only about 20 people in the place. The animation is amazing, it is really well done. I was also surprised at something that happens and how they handled it, so beautiful. I won't give it away. Let's just say it is almost an UP moment for those of you who have seen that. The songs are wonderful, I am considering getting the soundtrack. And for those who have Toy Story fans in the house, there is going to be a third one. They had a preview.

Dude. I have been slacking on our countdown calendar, so we caught up at dinner tonight. Umm . . . Christmas is a week from Thursday! I suspect the girls are going to get a repreive from naps at least once this week so we can get a few things taken care of.

I can't wait to see The Princess and The Frog! I think we are going to go when Cooper is out of school for Winter Break.

I really want to take K-Girl to see The Princess and The Frog. Glad to hear such rave reviews on all these blogs. :)

And I'm not done either, but I have a LOT of crocheting that needs done to be more ready. Very little of my list actually needs a store. Hoping that I'll be able to pull that off when hubby is around at the end of the week.

We counted this morning and Christmas eve is in 8 days! Whooo hooo! Well, I'm happy since my shopping is mostly finished but I feel for ya. I usually wait until last minute and it's been hard this year finding time to get away to do it.

Glad to hear the movie was good. I wasn't sure if it would be. We'll wait til it comes out though! No way am I bringing these monkeys to a movie theater! You are brave!

Loads of info in this post-- The Princess and the Frog hasn't captured my interest yet, but neither did Up and I LOVED that movie-- so I'll go. On your recommendation. I'm sure I'll get the same theater tour from my toddler too, so it will be like you and I went together :-)
I SO get your shopping dilemma. Amazon has been my shopping friend this year too. Hang in there-- you will make it work, you know you always do!
