Christmas shopping, last weekend, etc

I don't like shopping. I can't stand crowds. I am annoyed by people who sit in the way in the parking lot waiting for someone to load their car and back out of their space. So, this time of year I am really frustrated when I attempt to go to the store! lol I tried to run out to get a few things on my lunch break today, and it took forever! And then, I didn't even find a couple things that I needed, so now I have to stop AGAIN at another store after work (when the crowds are even worse). Gotta love it. But I'm still smiling and still playing Christmas music :)
I'm sure everyone knows the song "The 12 pains of Christmas". That came on the radio while I was in the car...haha!

I'm almost done with Christmas shopping. I still need more for my mom, but today I got the things I needed for Brendan & Adam's daycare rooms and kid exchange and teacher gifts, except for the ingredients to make up a big tray of crackers, cheese, and treats for the rest of the staff there. I was going to try to bring that in tomorrow, but I don't think I can do all of that tonight after work, especially since Joe won't be there to help with the boys until later tonight. Guess that'll have to wait another day (or two).

Oh, I don't think I posted about the weekend. Saturday Brendan went to a birthday party for one of the little boys in his daycare class. Then later that night we went to a Christmas party at my boss's house. It was nice, but not many people were able to come.

Then on Sunday, we celebrated Christmas at my mom's house Sunday. It was chaotic with the 4 boys (ages 5, 5, 2, 1), but still fun. Brendan is loving his new games for the Leapster we bought him for his birthday. He's been playing with that thing almost every spare minute, and in the car on the way to and from daycare. He also has been begging for Madagascar and has been asking me every day if we have it, etc, etc, and we finally got it from my mom, and last night I thought he'd be so excited when I said lets watch it, but no...he said "aww, I don't want to watch that". Kids! *I* wanted to watch it, so I did. You know, I was really disappointed. I thought it was going to be such a good and funny movies, but I guess I got my hopes up too high. It was cute, but I think they could have done a lot more with that storyline than they did. Oh well.

Tomorrow is my last day of the work week- I'm off Thursday, Friday, Monday & Tuesday! Woohoo! Looking forward to that!
