The Heat Is On....

Photobucket

So...I've got today.
Today. That's it.
Gotta get the house ready for company (we're up to almost 20 people) for Christmas day.

Tomorrow---headin' down South to my Mamasita's for our Christmas celebration.
And then....Santa's coming!

Grocery List that remains: vegetable oil, orange juice, champagne (you know, for my mistletoe mimosas!).... I do NOT want to go to the store. I'll send Hubby.

Santa's helpers have some work to do. You know---"some assembly required" type stuff.

I need to swiffer the dining room.
I need to clean up all the toys in the living room, and windex the glass top tables.
I think I'm done wrapping gifts...

I'm in pretty good shape, I suppose.

Did some baking today: chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, and a cherry pie.

Tomorrow, Hubby's making Beef Wellington at my mom's... I can't wait. He makes it with this uber-yummy red wine sauce. So good that I dream about it! Mmmmmm.

Hope you guys have a good day with the last minute hustle & bustle of the season.
:)
