December.... The Struggle is real #saveme

It's DECEMBER and yes...

I have officially   [OFFICIALLY]     lost my freakin' mind! 

I mean, the stockings have been hung #withcare, it's time for #saintnicholas soon to be here. 

It sounds all lovely and magical, right! 

Until you STOP and THINK about all the time... all the work... all the blood, sweat and of course, those alligator tears that fell when you had those last two (2) boxes to carry down two flights of stairs and you know they were heavy as all get out to only discover that the stuff inside said heavy boxes is stuff that YOU DON'T EVEN NEED! #aghhh

Hey, this is just the decorating part...js.

Don't get me started on the gift buying- because...let's just say that I did good- or so I thought until some of those goodies that I order from well double/triple coupon cashing place places my order with said gifts only to suddenly be: 

when it comes time to ship. #really

So, back to the drawing board I go. #ohwhatfun

Now, there are piles of gifts littering my room because, well, with all this ONLINE shopping craziness that I endure.. I kind of lose my MIND on what I bought for whom and yada yada yada.

Ugh.  #tistheholidayseason

And on top of me being an official member of the NUT HOUSE (I might be the ambassador at this point) I managed to break my toe or two the day before Turkey Day #dontask and get sick #together. 

Life is fab right now. 

The silver lining - or- good news is that Elfrick, our oh so cleverly named, only visits after Turkey Day, Elf has managed to come all the way down from the North Pole to keep an eye on my girls and hopefully he is letting Santa know how well behaved they have been since his arrival!

(Elfrick, can you come back throughout the year? Please?)

Speaking of kiddos - mine saw Santa (geez, a while back now!) and these crazy kids of mine....seriously, like they have everything! {laugh}  

They asked that Jolly elf for costumes... Wait, let me repeat that....COSTUMES!  

I mean, true, we went before Turkey Day and after Halloween, but #really !

These kids of mine! 

Sure, I can laugh about it. 

I mean, maybe they forgot about those catalogs that they just HAD to park the page- of the whole darn book! 

I mean, we watch TV (thanks Nick) and all I hear is "I want that!" "Mom, I really want that!"  #commercialspaythebills - but when push comes to girls asked for COSTUMES!  #gottaloveem

The BIG thing in our house right now, next to #bloodymary - and were not talking the drink people - is Disney's Descendants.  

I mean, who knew that I had Mal and Evie living under my roof. #truestory   

They LOVE the movie, know the song- imagine my embarrassment as my FOUR year old is singing (in her LOUD voice) -   

"They say I'm trouble, they say I'm bad, they say I'm evil, that makes me glad..... A dirty no-good, down to the bone, your worst nightmare, can't take me home, ugh, so I've got some mischief, in my blood, Can you blame me? I never got no love, they think I'm callous, a low-life hood , I feel so useless, MISUNDERSTOOD!  Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who's the baddest of them all? Welcome to my wicked world, wicked world!  Cause I'm rotten to the CORE, CORE, rotten to the CORE!" 

It was so LOUD that one of Hubby's buddies who was helping him work on the house had to ask what the heck she was singing! LOL

So, of course, they ask Santa for the Mal costume (Ms. 6) and the Evie costume (Ms. 4) - so they can dress the part. 

Hopefully Santa comes through because I thought for sure they would not remember...yup, I was WRONG!

Now, that Christmas has literally thrown up on the inside of our house...and the outside, since last night Hubby got the outside lights up and on...


I know...I it wasn't before! 

But I may or may not have spent the past weekend on the couch watching Hallmark Christmas movies ... and Prancer...  

Spreading the cheer!
