The rest of the guests get here next week. It should be a whirlwind week. Tureaza, Taylor, Osten and Lily will be here Thursday. Amber and Andy on Friday night probably. Maria flies in on Christmas afternoon. Miguel will be home from job core so he and Carlos will be here. Invitations have been given verbally to other friends so there should be a lot of “drop ins” on Christmas day.
It is like Christmas at moms. She had coffee made before anyone got up and started putting out food for the early morning drop ins by the time we went through the Christmas presents. The last guests still arriving late into the evening on their way home from their own celebrations, just for dessert.
I finished decorating the tree tonight. Going through the box of decorations we came across Brian’s stocking. Mom used to put up stockings for all of our friends and anyone she thought was stopping by. I have no idea what happened to Shelly’s, Linda’s or Sarita’s stockings but I am glad I have Brian’s. I think I will hang it this year.
The rest of the decorations will have to go up on Sunday. I have a full day on Saturday starting with Breakfast and ending at a Christmas party. I also have a cupcake order to deliver in the late afternoon. Cupcakes I’ll be baking tomorrow night. More cupcakes on Monday and 7 dozen for next Thursday.
I also bought four new light fixtures to go up outside. There was too much rain and craziness to do them last weekend. But they are just sitting in boxes on the floor and really need to get it out of the way before the rest of the company gets here. Also
when I get to putting lights up outside, I’ll want these to plug into instead of my mishmosh of unmatched but mostly unworking lights.
