Thursday Thirteen - My First

Thirteen (of the 100) things to do before we go to Grandma and Grandpa's Thursday evening.

  1. Final touches on two gifts.
  2. Re wrap and decorate Grandma and Grandpa's gift. I wrapped the gift with the white side of the paper out. The idea was the kids could decorate it. I had in mind some hand traces, names written, maybe a few small nice pictures. The kids idea was to scribble over the whole thing, in blue; even where I already had the baby hands. I want it to be the kids work, but we need to do it again with more specific guidelines!
  3. Finish folding and putting away the laundry I've been working on all week. Perhaps do 2 more loads: one of diapers, the other of jeans.
  4. Fix the flat tire. Applehead's job! Yes, I discovered a flat tire this Wednesday afternoon. Luckily, I was already home and didn't need to go anywhere else.
  5. Locate suitcases for six.
  6. Pack clothing for six.
  7. Another batch of peanut butter blossoms? Maybe.
  8. Water tree.
  9. Remind Mamaw to water tree while we are gone.
  10. Be sure the rabbits', chicken (not a typo, we have one chicken) and dog's food and water are full.
  11. Remind Ashley and Miles to feed animals while we are gone.
  12. Take Christmas dinner food out of the freezer to defrost. We are coming home Christmas Eve. On the menu for Christmas day: bacon wrapped fillet Mignon, shrimp cocktail, french bread and brie, green beans, baked sweet potatoes, ice cream. I know, not your traditional, but all things we like that don't take much fuss.
  13. Tell all my blogging friends Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas!
May you see His Glory and be Overjoyed this Christmas!

P.S. Grandma doesn't have Internet, so I won't be around for a few days!

  1. I like the idea of having the kids decorate the wrapping paper. I hope you have a Merry Christmas! Welcome to TT and thanks for dropping by mine.

  2. Welcome to TT and good luck getting everything done before you are off to Grandmas!

    My TT is up!

  3. Good luck with everything! Welcome to Thursday Thirteen and enjoy your holidays. :)

  4. Christmas dinner sounds good. Goodluck on your 2nd attempt for decorating the paper. I did that one year on kraft paper with stamps instead. Kids drawing/art and hand prints are good idea though.
    Merry Christmas to you too.

  5. Oh so busy!

    Happy TT and have a very Merry Christmas!

  6. Why don't you come and do my laundry while you're at it? It doesn't sound like you have nearly enough to do! ;)

    Happy Holidays and happy TT!

  7. Hope you have a great holiday!
