Random Friday Ramblings....

Is it Christmas yet? I don't know about you, but I can't *wait* for Christmas to be over. It seems like Christmas has been hanging over my head forever and it's slowly barreling towards me. I'm SO not prepared. I'm not even going to bore you with the amount of stuff I have left to do (but trust me -- there's a lot, and I'm quickly running out of time). I need a time machine to take me back a few weeks so I can try to get some of this stuff done!

I'm SO excited about the Philadelphia Phantoms game tomorrow. I'm so happy that I won the tickets from work, and Chris is so excited to go! It'll be a good time; a way to relax and unwind from all this crazy holiday stress... Of course, I'll be stressed driving there because I *always* get lost driving to the stadium. I suck driving at nighttime, and because I've only been to the stadium a handful of times, I'm never quite sure of where I'm going. Last time we went, I got so lost and Chris had a mini panic attack in the car because he thought we were going to be late (we ended up making it on time!)

I can't believe my baby girl is going to be 4 on Monday. Where did the time go? I vividly remember going to the hospital at 5 a.m. on Dec 22nd for my scheduled C-section, scared out of my mind because it was the first baby I had in 9 years and I was afraid I had forgotten everything. I was so excited to find out I was having a girl, after having 2 boys (and subsequently having another boy! Sophie and I are outnumbered in the house!). She was my early Christmas present and has been such a complete and total pleasure. She's a wonderful, sweet, calm, loving big girl and I love her more and more every day!

Hanukkah starts on Monday. Yes, I celebrate both. Hanukkah is MUCH less stressful than Christmas. I love Hanukkah because you can enjoy the beauty of the simplicity of the holiday -- lighting the menorah to symbolize the miracle of the oil lasting for 8 days. We're going to an Ice skating party sponsored by the Synagogue. I have NO idea how it's going to turn out -- Peyton does NOT do well around crowds, and I haven't quite figured out how I'm going to keep control of him while on ice skates. I don't even know IF I'm going to brave ice skates. I'm not exactly in the best of shape. If anyone shouldn't be on ice skates, it's me!

By time my next Friday ramblings come around, Christmas will be done! Hooray!

Oh our kids are close together. My son turns 4 in two weeks! They grow up fast don't they?

Have tons of fun at the game. I always get lost too. I couldn't escape from a paper bag even if I had a map! I have a good friend that I use as my personal on-star! lol She always talks me through going places and helps me find my way home. Thank goodness for friends who know our area.
