Good Morning. I haven't been on the good morning thread in a loooong time because Duckie has been difficult in the morning for a loooong time. Well, difficult throughout the entire day, actually. Things finally came to a head last week and hopefully life will now calm down some. It's the 4th Sunday of Advent so that means today is the the children's Christmas play at church. Duckie is playing an angel; it's ironic. Keep a good thought that the kids remember their lines and speak loudly and clearly. Oh! And that our shepherds (three siblings under age 8) don't hurt each other with their crooks... We had a little Christmas party for a few of Duckie's friends last night. We kept it quiet because I told her that she could only invite six friends... that leaves out about 20 other girls, if you Know what I mean?? But they had fun singing, making crafts, and playing a pass-the-gift game set to "Twas the Night Before Christmas. Duckie even created her own "Christmas Quiz" to see what type of Christmas girl each friend is (think Cosmo quiz, but clean, lol!). It was fun. And the best part what that she sincerely thanked both her father and I for the party. So today is my last truly crazy day before the Christmas holiday. I have some wrapping to do, cleaning to do and the in-laws come to dinner on Wednesday. So the stress of the holiday season seems to be passing for me. Merry Christmas!
