12-3-11 in other news...

The big plan for today was outside Christmas lights. 

And then it snowed.


Add to this fact we still weren't finding the lights we wanted despite having checked Walmart, Target, and Home Depot.

So this morning we stopped in at Walgreens to pick up some prints I'd ordered and voila! There were the blue LEDs I'd been looking for, on SALE, no less.

Oh, and there was a lot of very weird Spongebob Christmas stuff. Case in point:

So we got our lights, then headed over to Wally world for the weekly grocery haul. New to the what-silliness-can-we-find-this-week files, a plush Cookie Monster mini-backpack, for those of us perpetually four:

After unpacking the haul and having lunch, we settled in for a long winter's nap. That would include Bru:

 shhh, don't say a word. Just keep petting.

This afternoon was set aside for baking.

(If you don't lick the beaters, you aren't doing it right.)

And ten dozen snickerdoodles later (Christmas gifts.... mostly)...

That left tonight for me to take Sam and her friend Cayley to see the Nutcracker.

I can now go to bed with vision of sugar plum fairies dancing in my head. Christmas time is here.
