Happy Homemaker Monday (12/19/16)

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and is ready for Christmas! I can't believe that it is less than a week before Christmas. This weekend was okay... Friday night and Saturday we had a freezing rain storm that left things a mess. My sister came over on Saturday to help the kids make cookies for teacher gifts. Saturday night Benjamin started throwing up and was sick on Sunday as well. Sunday, I spent the afternoon wrapping presents and am completely done! My dad took Rebecca and Jacob to see "Moana" in the theater. We took Benjamin out to the Dollar Tree to pick out gifts for his brother and sister. Overall, it was an okay weekend. 
   
Now it is Monday. Hubby is home sick (I think he got what Benjamin had). Benjmain seems better today. I am praying no one else gets it before Christmas. Now it is time to get on with our Happy Homemaker Monday (hosted by our friend Sandra over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom).



THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS:::

It is sunny today but cold! The ice we got over the weekend isn't going anywhere. It is so thick...

ON THE BREAKFAST PLATE THIS MORNING:::

I had a doughnut from Kroger.

  
AS I LOOK OUTSIDE MY WINDOW:::

I see ice on the ground. The sun is making is sparkly.    


RIGHT NOW I AM:::

Typing up this post, listening to Ben asking his dad to put something on the TV. I am also thinking about my to do list and what else I want to get done this week
 
AS I LOOK AROUND THE HOUSE:::

The house is in pretty good shape. There are toys in the living room floor, but the kitchen is clean and the dining room table is pretty clean.

ON TODAY'S TO-DO LIST:::
  • Laundry (Only have 1 load! I got everything caught up over the weekend! )
  • Collect trash from around the house and take to curb
  • Address and mail Christmas cards. I am so late on this this year. I have mailed off my card swap ones but still have to mail family and friends theirs.
  • take Benjamin to speech and OT
  • make pretzels hershey kiss candy for teachers
