Thirteen Things about Trinity13

1. My hubby's granddad is back in the hospital again. We hope to get over there tonight to see how he's doing.

2. I have one weird cat! Instead of running away when the vacuum is turned on, she runs toward it. She just loves investigating things.

3. With Christmas being on a Sunday this year, we have really had to rearrange our normal celebrations. My hubby, son, and I would always open our gifts in the morning and then head over to my parents house. But my dad will be at his church early that morning to prepare the sound, lighting, and cameras (since he is the head tech). So, I think we are going to celebrate on C-mas eve with my parents, but after 8 since my brother has to work that day (he also has to work C-mas day as well).

4. I'm really going to miss the C-mas morning cinnamon and orange rolls that my mom makes. I told her that I still want some even if we have our C-mas in the evening, but it just won't be the same. :-(

5. I just finished C-mas shopping for 5 people in the past two days. I still need to buy for my dad (I was supposed to go in on a gift with my mom, but she changed her now I need to find something for him), and my aunt and uncle. There are a few more small things I want to get for my hubby and my son, but then I should be done.

6. I would love to start wrapping this weekend. I usually have all my gifts wrapped two weeks before C-mas. I just love being prepared!

7. My hubby had his apartment painter come over to the house today to re-touch all the dings and scratches in the walls. The stairway wall down to the basement was really bad since my hubby and I moved down our sectional couch. But now the walls look all clean again (and I didn't cost us a cent)!

8. This year my mom, sis, and I are once again having a cookie baking day and my mom's best friend and her daughter-in-law are joining us...and it's going to be at my house!!! I have more move-about space in my kitchen than my mom does. And that's important since we'll have two extra people helping out.

9. We will making peanut butter blossoms, 7 layer bars, fudge, no-bakes, buckeyes, (Girl Scout) thin mints, chocolate crinkles, and whatever else sounds good!

10. I finally have all my C-mas boxes all put away. They were the last boxes that needed to be moved around.

11. I have the privilege of watching my nieces and nephew this Friday! It's Lo's b-day tomorrow (Happy Birthday Lo!), and she and her hubby, Guru, are going out to celebrate. So I get to have their kids overnight!!! I can't wait...I just love sleepovers!!!!!

12. I still need to find a theme for my son's bathroom. I just have no clue what to pick. I would love to use the rugs I already have so I don't have to buy any more, but I need a theme to match. Maybe I need to head over to Bed, Bath, and Beyond and look in their clearance section.

13. I have the two year old for another 2 days this year. His mother is pregnant and she is being induced next Wednesday. She will be going on a 8 week maturnity leave, and then I'll have the siblings (at least) 3 times a week. So, by February I'll have 4 boys 3 and under, and a newborn to watch. Should be fun!!!

HI! I like your list. Those orange cinnamon rolls sound good. Do you have the recipe.

Your cat sounds fun.

I did my bathroom theme with fish.

Then my bathroom caught on fire. Now it's fried fish. Get it?

LOL at your cat! One of my cats also loves the vacuum cleaner. Whenever I get out the long tool, he follows me around as I vacuum along the edges and will even sit there and let me vacuum HIM with it! Too funny! Great list! Have a great Friday!
