Almost to the Finish Line

The cookies are baked, the house decorated, gifts wrapped, presents under the tree, and just a few more days of "Holiday Cleaning."  I don't know about you but I only deep clean a few times a year. Usually it involves or coincides with when my sister visits.  I figured out a few years ago I was skipping the fall and spring cleaning thing and was hitting it more before Christmas and summer...when people visit.  I do not love to clean, so I put it off till outside pressures force me to get a move on.  The other thing I realized just the other day (true confessions haha) that once my house is spit spot, I want to do all the entertaining I have tended to put off because now all I have left to do is cook!  Which I thoroughly enjoy!  So today some invites went out for New Years Eve.  Blessed are the woman who like to cook and clean, they must enjoy entertaining more often than I ;)

A little photo thrown in for blogland sake. I took my grands out for a quick trip to the mall today to give momma a break and because I was missing the little darlings so much.  I don't know if I mentioned how much of a ham our little miss Avey (aka Sweet Pea) has become.  I know what you are thinking...yes it was a bit crazy to go to the mall with two little ones in tow this week.  I guess you have figured out by now I was finding a charming excuse to avoid housework.  Oh yes indeed you are right,  I would rather go to the mall Christmas week with two little grands in tow then clean my house anyday...there I have said it...the whole world knows!

Looks like a fun time with grandma--and I agree with you about the house cleaning ... anything but, but here I go today! Have a great Christmas!

And it is also a good thing to go to a busy mall with wee ones in tow if you've already cleaned the house and wish to keep them out of it. that's a true confession for you! (Oh yes, I am guilty.)

A girl after my own heart! I can identify with this post. How sweet that you and the little girls could just ham it up and have fun in the hussle buttle of the season. I like that!

I'm so with you on this one! I much prefer cooking to cleaning...making the mess to cleaning it up! I do like a clean house...I just wish someone else would look it for me.

Have a wonderful and blessed Christmas!

Such a great post-firstly seeing your grands, they are so adorable! Also hearing that you avoid cleaning but when the house is in order you have friends over. I'd love to come spend NY eve with you-lol. My hubby isn't one that likes to entertain too much so other than family, we don't have many friends over.
Christmas blessings from our home to yours.
Hugs, Noreen
