Time Managment!

 This just seems so appropriate right now! How are all y'all doing these days with your time?



http://www.ohmyhandmade.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/time-management.gif

I would like to think I am ready for Christmas, and all organized and such.
But the truth of the matter is I am not so much.

Problem is time is ticking...

http://www.effective-time-management-strategies.com/images/time_management_software.jpg

I have but a few more things to show you related to Christmas, then it's a wrap.
My boys are through with school now and will be home for the next two weeks.
I look forward to spending some time with them.


They are getting so big, so fast. 

Christmas is different in our home this year.
This is the first year Jack does not believe in Santa. 
That is a sad day I tell you. When Alex found out, I reassured myself I still had Jack to believe and I held on to that for sometime.
But now, I have no more small children who believe....
Can I tell you JACK is driving me crazy, asking for just one present every day. The boy is relentless!!
He sure would not drive Santa crazy!

Well that is about all for tonight....I am going to promise myself to use my time more efficiently for the next week.
Still not stressing, so I guess that is a good thing!

You can still hop in the NEWBIE party going on

Debbie, I keep randomly mentioning Santa just to see if I can convince my son that maybe he does exist. But I'm pretty sure that boat has sailed away completely. Have fun with the kiddos. Before you know it, they will be home from college for Christmas break and you will have to schedule time to see them in between visits to their friends.

This is a bittersweet post, Debbie. I remember those days with my children. Now I have grandchildren who still believe. Got me back into the swing of things, that is for sure!:-)

Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Gorgeous boys, Debbie!
(or should I say, very handsome!?)

I am way behind but I am getting a little closer to getting it all done
with each passing day. We have to ship everything to five states, no family close by, so that always makes it even harder.

Enjoy your time off with your boys, all three of them!

My boys are 9 year old twins - one believes and one doesn't. It's so sad. Should I still open the fireplace screen and put big sooty footprints all over? That was so convincing on Christmas Morning -- I would complain "Oh that Santa...messy, messy, messy".

Yes, they are growing up quickly and you should spend time with them especially this time of year. I still need to buy Leila a couple of toys and get a gift bag and some money holder cards. I am babysitting the grand dog till Wednesday. Bailey is jealous. I have both of them by me right now.

such goodlooking boys, it is sad when the bubble breaks and the big secret is out, (no santa) ,I think we all could use time management help right about now!

Time sure keeps whizzing by. I'm perfectly calm & stress free right now, but I know it won't last. By the time Wednesday rolls around, I'll be in full on panic mode! lol

I can't seem to figure out if my son still believes in Santa. My daughter knew for a few years but never let on, so I'm thinking he may be doing he same thing. It is a sad day when they no longer believe, isn't it?

As for me, I still believe. I refuse to let go of the magic!

Handsome guys! I have my grandsons who still believe, they grow up so fast! I'll be leaving Wednesday for the lake, so I have tomorrow to finish up! This year has flown by, I hope you have a great time with guys while they're out of school! Have a very Merry Christmas, I'll be a little scarce until next week :)

You are so cute and sweet. Spend each moment you can with the boys this season. Soon, they will be off to college and you will only have us...he-he...Yes, extra time is needed here. Thanks so much for your card with the great picture of the boys, which is what I think I see here. I will be back and posting as soon as I can. Can't wait till 2012 and some daily normalcy. I will be checking in.

I remember when that day of reckoning came. It went from my older boys to my younger girls and before I knew it...I was Santa Claus!! Don't worry, the element of surprise will always be there. Your boys are growing and the time is flying. Enjoy each moment!

Debbie, I can't get over how big the boys look! Oh my!!! I am so sad you have no Santa junkies anymore. Do you want Jemma for a while? I have been all over the elf thing and Santa as I know I only have a few more years left. Makes me so sad... Enjoy your break with them!

Debbie, you could have done what my elementary school friend's mom did.

My friend was the oldest of 3 kids and when she realized Santa, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy were not real, her mom told her when all the kids in the family stopped believing that means there would be no more stockings filled at Christmas, no baskets of candy for Easter, and no more money for lost teeth.

Her mom was the type who would follow through on these threats too! Needless to say, my friend pretended to believe for years and even went so far to encourage her brothers to really think all these make believe people were real.

Hop you and your family have a very Merry Christmas.

As for time management....Who knows where the time went this year. I'm terribly behind on everything!

Look at your babies...so cute, nope I am not stressing at all, I have a couple busy days because my son is driving down from DC. He doesn't believe in Santa any more LOL! Got to get one of my girlie rooms ready for him. He never lived here, so it is not like I took over his room! Now don't completely cross my vintage gown off! I would love if your sister wanted it! It is so small it does not even fit on my size A Acme dress form!

Debbie,
Your boys are at such a fun age!

The funniest thing about my kids and Santa.

I think that Chrislyn & Jay figured it out in about 4th or 5th grade. I never knew the real story until their College years. We were laughing at dinner one night when the subject came up. They said, "Mom, we didn't have the heart to tell you." "We didn't want to spoil it for you and Dad!"
It's about the child in all of us! Ha!
Merry Christmas to you and your beautiful family!

The Santa days are long gone for us too now. Recently husband and I were out shopping and spotted a lovely Grotto with a train, stalls and fairground rides and I decided we need grandchildren!! A few years off yet (I hope) but something to look forward to.
Have a Happy Christmas and all good wishes for 2012.
