December busyness

December is rolling along at a fast pace around here. We're halfway through the month and there's still so much to do. I have most of my Christmas shopping done. I'm waiting on a few online orders and have a few things to pick up while I'm out and about this weekend. I'm hoping to get out to The Company Store and a few others spots this weekend. Maybe Lisa and I can head out for some last minute shopping and then back here to bake some cookies. I'm sure we'll want to do some peanut logs and cut-out cookies (Chuck's favorite) and I'd like to make Sanbakkels (my favorite). I was thinking I wanted to learn how to make lefse this year. That means this weekend or next.

We have Christmas pictures to pick up and laundry too. We all need haircuts! Then we need to pack our bags. In just over a week we're off to Michigan for Christmas with Chuck's family. I have most of the Michigan gifts wrapped up. I don't know what to do about Rachel's gifts yet. Do I bring them? I could send them to Mom and Dad's for her to open there at our family's celebration. What do I do about Santa? Should I tell him we'll be in Michigan or let him know it's okay to leave something under our tree because we'll be back soon? Hmmm. I'd better figure this stuff out soon.

We're renting a minivan to travel again this year. It is so nice to be on our own schedule (not an airline's) and stop when and where we want. Rachel is already looking forward to seeing the ladies who work the breakfast buffet at the hotel. She has already asked if they will be there this year. I hope they are. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again. We haven't seen most of the family since June.
