I indulged my inner geek and made a calendar to schedule Christmas-related activities around here. Yes, it's color coded. It makes me happy, OK?!? There is one for November, too, but I won't torture you with that.

The new goal is half the shopping done and all the lists ready.

These are the favorite toys in our house right now. WHY, oh WHY?? I don't understand the allure of Transformers, except that the other kids in kindergarten like them.

Oh the crazy things you learn when you have boys.
