4 more days of work and then I am off for 2 weeks! Awesome, it can't come soon enough. The inlaws are arriving next Monday so there is a lot to do to get ready. My house is a mess - shocker I know - but I have been putting off the deep clean until this coming weekend because my little elves create havoc wherever they go. I snapped a few pictures of our decorations and thought I would share:
And the stockings were hung by the chimney with care...
I got a little crafty and made this sign:
I took Sarah's idea at Clover Lane and made
ornaments from our past Christmas Cards
Since I have a fake tree, I always get a live wreath
Apparently the girls were acting out Daniel and the Lion's Den
According to Mr. ESPN the lion got drunk and fell over.

Our Big (candy holding) Advent Calendar
And because I like my other sign so well I made one with our name
But now I need some trees or something on each side of it
One of my most favorite things about Christmas -
Photos and Photo Cards! BTW I hate this card holder.
Every time I put a new one in another one falls out.
And just some random thoughts ... Chatty now wants a laptop, I-Touch and an I-Pad for Christmas in lieu of the 2 cute puppies. Bia named off random things including Dora doll house and Little Einsteins movie in addition to two cute puppies. Sadly neither of them are getting any of that! Well I did find two cute stuffed puppies that will be in their stockings but that's as close as it is going to get this year. 5 weeks until my 1/2 marathon - I (slowly) ran 10 last weekend and was hurting all day! Mr. ESPN just called me on his way to work to tell me the Phillies just signed Cliff Lee (pitcher) ... seriously is that not the lamest thing to call your wife about at 7:15 a.m.? Sad part is I already had heard it on sports radio on my drive into work this morning.
Is it Friday yet???
