Do you want to hear something scary

I mean REALLY scary

It is December 15th.

That means I have exactly 9 days to get everything ready for Christmas.

Chocolate gingerbread Pancakes


9 days people!  If you’re not scared, I’m sure that I am scared enough for all of us.  I am NOT ready.

REALLY not ready

No wreath

No tree

Cards NOT addressed

All that changes today.

Today Christmas will come to the Kinnaird house.

I may not unpack

I will probably look like I just got off a plane  {I will be sharing ALL about my Pillsbury trip later this week}

My inbox will be ignored for yet another day


We will deck the halls

make merry

and eat chocolate gingerbread pancakes
