Christmas Shopping & Tonsils

I'm done. How about you?

Keep under budget?

I shop all year to find the best deals and this year I came in wayyyyyyyyyy under budget.

I'm still in shock that I did so well! I know that the girls and Junior will love everything that I got and I will be pleased watching them open the gifts and knowing that I scored such good deals. I should be a professional shopper!

Abs is getting her tonsils and adenoids out on Thursday. The girl is so excited about this, she can hardly contain herself. I tried to tell her she would have an IV and her throat would be really sore, but it hasn't dampened her spirits at all. She wants it done, and she wants it done now! Must be the promise of ice cream afterwards.

Abs seems to get so excited about some of the strangest things. I guess it's her eagerness to experience and know about the mysterious.

Done? Bwahahaha! I will consider myself lucky if I'm done before the 15th. I'm jealous, maybe I should hire you to shop for me! ;)

DH bought his own present this year - a ticket from the "red light fiasco."

L has the only other present so far. Better get going...

Can't wait to see what you send this way. J made the list too, right?

Careful on the ice cream after tonsils. Dairy coats the throat which doesn't always help. When I had mine out I ate tons of frozen fruit. Healthy, cold, and sweet.. can't go wrong. My mom invested in a nice blender and made me tons of fruit smoothies after surgery. Looking back I wish I would have had my tonsils and adenoids out when I was younger.. I would have saved myself so many health problems.

I hope surgery goes well!!!

Tell Abs that her GP had the same thing done when he was a little boy.
