Tree trimmed--Check, including the Gentleman Husband's beloved Sputnick.

Car prepped for the Christmas journeyings--Check, including a fresh battery for the flashlight.

Cameras and video cameras charged--Check, not that I will remember to use either of them.

Cookies baked and plated for Visiting Teachees--Check.

Cookies delivered to VTees--Nope, and now they are stale and gross.

Crucial Christmas movies watched--Joyeux Noel, A Muppet's Christmas Carol, and Under the Greenwood Tree so far. Doing good!

Knitted gifts completed--Um, still scrambling there. May be delivering some IOUs tomorrow morning.

Gifts wrapped--Yeah, not so much.

Christmas cards--Nope. Keep an eye out next year, though!

Groceries purchased & laundry done--Check, thanks to furloughed GH who gets to be my handsome house elf for the week.

Bathroom cleaned--Check, thanks to ME, and I feel I possibly deserve a major award for my efforts there. Have had to stop myself from dragging guests back there. "LOOK! The bottom of the tub is WHITE NOW!!"

Slavering over tonight's menu--Ooooh, check. My responsibilities include crab-stuffed mushrooms and the brussels sprouts + bacon from Thanksgiving because I didn't get to eat enough of them then.

Moments where I have felt the Christmas spirit--Check, check, check.

And now here's hoping that we all have several days full of peaceful, Christmas-spirit-feeling moments. Merry Christmas, everyone!

Love the stale VT gifts. This year I re-treated (this is akin to re-gifting). You take a few samples from the incoming goodies and pass them on to your Visiting Teachees. I am normally not so lame, but I didn't feel like baking that day. I am pretty sure Santa is getting re-treated too.

There is nothing wrong with re-treating. I do it. But it's a secret.
Merry Christmas Nemmy! See you in 16 days!!!

Watching Under the Greenwood Tree totally got me in the Christmas spirit too. I loved it even more than the first time I saw it (with you, remember?). Merry Christmas, Miss Nem!

Your link to the brussel sprout recipe was greatly appreciated. You raved about it so much that I made it even though my family and I have never eaten it before. We LOVED it! We've had it several more times and the kids get excited to see we're having them. I would have NEVER thought my kids would like brussel sprouts... so thanks!

Anon, you have just made my day. I can't wait for my DAD to read your comment--he's been resisting me as I try to tell him how great these puppies are!
