December 10...

Larry and I woke up early...2:30am...yep...and just decided to get on up!  You know how it feels to just lay in bed, get sleepy again and drift off?  Nope, neither do I...SO, it was get up and turn on the coffee maker time.  After playing on the computer a bit, eating breakfast and getting dressed, we hustled into town to get the shopping done.  Walmart had everything we needed, but I swear after raising my daughter then having the granddaughter Samantha around, you'd think I'd remember what kind of baby doll a one year old would like to play with!Hahaa...Nope!  I had NO idea!  My rescuer came in the form of a young black mother of two little ones in her shopping of them was a  one year old!  Mom directed this old woman (head hanging low in embarrassment) the CORRECT baby dolls.  They need to have a completely soft body.  Thanks to her I found a little sweetie and put it in my basket.  How the years erase some things and amplify others...Oh well.  I had sent Larry off to find the radio controlled truck for the 15 year old on the list from yesterday's ornament.  He came around the corner just beaming.  He didn't have any problems! 
Next but lastly, it was the size 18 to 24 month sized clothes.  You know what?  They don't really make much for little boys do they?!  But, Larry saved the day.  On an out of the way hanger were size 24mo pant sets.  Done and done.
After labeling and packing the gifts away, we had lunch...roast, new potatoes and green beans.  The day is only half over...guess I'm in the mood for a Christmas movie.  It's a Wonderful Life should fill the bill!
Have a super Saturday!

And hooray for all the luck. And for the luck of finding a Mom of a 1 year old, to help.

Super Congratulations on a morning, well spent!!!!

Making goodies today, pecan tarts and beefed up sugar cookies with raspberries and lemon zest next. Made lots of fiddle faddle first and passed it out to neighbors. Snowing here so will take a break and catch a few flakes on my tongue.

I thought I got an early start to the day getting up at 4:30 this morning. Good job on getting all the gifts bought. Love that angel ornament

Buying a boy clothes for christmas is courting danger ... or trauma.

Hi Donna, is Walmart open 24 / 7? I definitely know the 2.30 am wake-up; happens regularly with us. Only thing is, in our new home (did you know we'd moved?) we don't have electricity in the rondawel where we sleep with our cats. But by 4am the dogs and I were up and ready to do our early morning walk (which was very wet as we have a thick mist over the mountains today) and ultimately a cuppa when I returned. We have power in the "big" house so I did the honors. It's now 6.30am and we're up and about! Bless you dear. Jo

Are you serious, you got up at 2:30? I cannot imagine, although I do know what it's like to not be able to drift back off to sleep. You cut a wide swath through that list, didn't you? Good job! xoxo
