Is it really?

I am still having a hard time grasping the fact that it is Christmas!! Tomorrow is Christmas e Eve!! Where exactly has this year gone? We are finishing up the last minute shopping and such and it's looking like we may even be stuck doing running tomorrow! Hubby just celebrated 1 year at his job and, a few months ago, we received a packet from his previous job. They had an employee profit sharing plan in which employees participated. For some reason, it took them over 10 months to send him notice that, as he was no longer employed, he was no longer qualified to hold stock. Ok, no biggie, it's not much money, send us a check... We are still waiting on said check. The chick doing it told us a month ago, maybe more, that we'd have it come middle of December. Here we are, 8 days before January and she left a voicemail this morning that she MIGHT get it done today. But, she's off after today, until next week. He hasn't been able to get ahold of her to find out if we should expect the check to be cut today or not. It's an hour and a half drive there so, if we can get it today, it would be good to know before 4pm so we can actually get it before tomorrow! I'm am so frustrated with the entire situation that I'm finding it difficult to enjoy Kadyn and the holidays!

I did finally get our cards in the mail last night. I guess that's what I get for deciding to make 25 cards, all by hand and all different! But, I think they turned out great and I am super happy with them! Now, if only we could have our original Christmas plans back, I'd be a super happy camper! We were going to wake up here Christmas morning, do the Santa thing with Kadyn, pack up, head to my mom's for Christmas dinner/night, stay there then go to Brian's mom's for their family gathering on Sat, the 25th. But, nope, Brian has to work Saturday. So, we're going to my mom's, Brian will come home Friday night, Kadyn and I are staying, my mom will run us to my MIL's on Saturday, we'll stay at my mom's that night and then Brian will come down either Saturday night, after work or Sunday and we'll visit his mom, and go visit his brother and his family. Then, Brian is off all next week so, we'll have a full week to recover and enjoy!

We did the visit with Santa last weekend, Kadyn loved it!! I will have to post a couple of pictures but, first, I have to edit them because for some reason, they turned out really dark, even with flash! I am off to start my baking, I am in charge of desserts and sweet for both Christmas parties this week! Good thing too, I LOVE to bake! :) Not sure what I'm going to do yet!

If I don't make it back before, I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas! :)

Hi there everyone! I'm Jamie. I'm 29, a mother of one little guy, Kadyn and married for almost 4 years to my hubby, Brian. We live in Reno, Nv, since February of this year.

Kadyn was born in July of 2007 and Brian and I were married in April, 2006. I was born and raised in Southern California and moved to Northern California in 2000.

I am hoping to share info on life, motherhood, and my attempts at being crafty! So, until next time!!
