Reindeer Readiness

 I seem to be behind many of you in the Christmas cheer department. Anyone else get seriously tense in December?? Although I love the holiday, the extra stress of present shopping and a houseful of expected guests does put a damper on it for me a little. If only I had an elf who would do the shopping and cleaning for me, then I could enjoy it to the fullest! I had insomnia Sunday night. I didn't fall asleep until 5:30. My alarm went off at 6.  Yep, 30 minutes of sleep for this girl. I kept thinking I should just get up and fold the laundry I didn't finish but then I was afraid I would miss any slight possibility of falling asleep. Instead I made lists in my head. Anyone a list maker?

SO, to try to catch up to all of you who have the cheer already in full gear (oh no, watch out, I'm rhyming now) I dragged my December box out and started looking through to see what my parent helpers could start prepping. I shared this after the holiday last year so I thought I would repost it early for those of you who may have missed it.

Thanks so much to all of you who shopped in my TpT store this weekend. It looks like I accidentally left the sale on today too so if you thought you missed it you have until midnight!



  1. I do the same thing when I can't sleep. I should just get up and get something done, but I always end up falling asleep right before my alarm goes off :(


  2. Hey Jenn! You poor thing, I hate those kind of nights. It can be so hard to turn everything in your mind off. I hope you get some rest soon and YES I feel tense in December too!! :)

  3. I don't have those kinds of nights often (I love sleep) but when it happens, I am not a happy camper. I also just stay in bed, hoping I'll finally fall asleep. Hang in there!!!!
    Thanks for sharing!! I was in the dark last year and had no idea all of these fabulous blogs existed! :)
