Tell me you haven't sent out your Christmas cards yet!

- December 2nd has been a bit kinder to me, thanks for asking!

- Mainly because I hope to have scored the easiest volunteer position for the elementary school 2nd grade holiday party -- the movie and popcorn station! I believe I will only have to provide popcorn (so gonna store-buy it) and paper cups to put it in and hand it out to the kids. So much better than the decorate a holiday cookie station (where you'd deal with 2nd graders and icing and no doubt have to provide the baked cookie shapes ready to be decorated) or the craft station (not that sequins and glue and 2nd graders do not equal fun, but maybe just a bit more than my December can handle!)

- When my my 3 year old wore the footie jammies recently both my 7 year old son and 5 year old daughter, independent of each other, asked, "Why can't I have jammies like that?!" "Um, because they don't make them big enough for you," I replied, but my husband said, "Yes, they do, they make them even in adult sizes!" So, apparently I need to find a source for some bigger footie jammies. All I know is that they don't sell them in the Target, which is just about the only store I go in these days besides the grocery!

- But I do know me some Target. I have been to a Target 3 times in the last 8 days because apparently I'm unable to make a complete list on the 1st or 2nd try. At least I have the freedom to mix it up a little and not go to the same Target, but the other also close-by Target!

- I came across this Teen Driving Contract by Lysa TerKeurst this week and am so filing it away to be referenced and used in about 8 years!

- Anyone else not even ordered their Christmas cards, yet? And we got a few in the mail this week just to help emphasize my slackerness in my own mind!

- But on a non-slacker note, I have managed to do, count 'em up, 2 Shred workouts post-Thanksgiving with another planned for tomorrow morning! Too bad I'm too sore to pat myself on the back!

- Happy Friday all!

Mommy's Idea


  1. The popcorn station definitely sounds the way to go! I've been conned into providing sushi for my 9 year old's class party at the end of term, at least it will only cost me in $ not time.

    I think online is your best bet for large sized footie jammies. I like the idea of them - so cute - but my feet get hot at night, even in winter.

  2. First, imagine a 2nd grade "build-a-gingerbread-house" station. Yeah, LOADS of fun with icing and little candy pieces everywhere!

    Our Target here has footie pajamas because I ALMOST bought some for my daughter for Christmas. But the sizes are wonky because they have feet in them and look ginormous.

    And I ordered my Christmas cards, but haven't picked them up yet, so you are definitely not alone. I was kinda hoping the card fairy would just do it all for me. So far, no dice.

    Blog on!

  3. I just so love coming to your blog...I am right back in yesteryear when I do. I remember those holiday parties at school, and YES you did luck out, haha...And Target is STILL my favorite store. But believe it or not my cards ARE in the mail...a first for me, haha...I am usually the last minute getting thoses babies out...But this year I needed to deal with the new address I hurried it up a bit. Have a GOOD week-end...HUGS

  4. I'm not even doing Christmas cards this year (hanging my head in shame).

  5. I sent my cards out two days ago - but I made my own. It's the one thing I do almost every year. I've missed a few years, but not many.

    Footed Pajamas for the whole family from Pajama Gram. I've ordered many things from this company in the years past. Go check them out.

  6. Haven't started shopping yet, let alone cards. (sigh)

    I can't tell you how many times I have gone to the store, and get home only to realize that I forgot something. Target is one of my faves.

  7. no mailed cards here. they aren't addressed.

    yes, my 7 year old has footie jammies and loves them. they came from kohl's i think.

  8. I own my own business custom designing photo cards, announcements and invitations and I myself JUST finished addressing our cards for mailing tomorrow so don't feel bad ;-) And if you need any help with your cards (or any of you!), please check out my website at I have a ton more sample designs to select from that are not listed on my site and I will also give you a great deal on pricing. Just email me at and let me know you came from It Feels Like Chaos and I'll set you up with discounted pricing to help you all out ;-)

    As for the footed pajamas, I just told my husband the other day that I was jealous they didn't make them in adult sizes. I'll have to check out the link suggestion from Kirby3131.

    Happy holidays everyone!


I'd love to hear what you think!
