Quick Takes 12/2/11

Our VW Beetle conked out so we're now a one-car family. Silver lining: we're saving money by only insuring one car, buying gas for one car, and paying taxes on one car plus selling the VW will give us a little more money for Christmas :)

I'm loving doing most of my Christmas shopping on Amazon. It's exciting to see those packages arrive!

We're slowly getting the halls decked...getting all those empty totes put away is a different matter.

Lots of strumming going on at our place...N. and hubby are learning to play the banjo and K. is learning guitar! M. is just making noise :).

Favorite seasonal beverages: Peppermint Chocolate Chip milkshakes from Chik-fil-A, Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks, and King's Tavern Ginger Ale shipped from Colonial Williamsburg, courtesy of my sweet hubby.

Our Christmas tree is favorite ornaments are the ones chosen to represent our family each year.

I am unreasonably excited about changing the background on my computer to winter/holiday scenes! "Decking" my computer is so 21st century.

Later Days,

I know what you mean about on-line shopping. My only problem is remembering who I got it for when it arrives. LOL! Obviously I'm going to need some help. Have a great weekend. Love, Mimi

By the way is E not making any noise. She's probably staying down in her room with her iPod.

E. is still trying to figure out if she wants to learn an instrument. Right now those ipod earbuds sound like a good idea to me....
