Tree? check. Visit with Santa? check. Cards ordered? check.




Not sure how this has happened, but we're actually ahead of the game this year! I took Kaelin to see Santa on Nov. 16th! It was Grandparent's Day at school, so she was already dressed up in a new outfit she picked out all by herself. That was the first day Santa was at the mall and Kaelin was dismissed from school at 11:30am, so there was no one in line for Santa. It worked out perfectly!
We went to Sleighbell's tree farm on Nov. 25th, the Sunday after Thanksgiving, and cut down our tree. It's set up, just waiting for lights and decorations. And I've ordered my Christmas cards. I plan on spending my 6+ hours at chemo addressing them. All this done before the 1st of December. Wow. That's never happened before!! I'm determined to stretch out this Christmas and enjoy it as much as I can, with as little stress as possible!

Hi Shauna: I love your blog. Great idea because it will keep all of us who care about you informed on how you are doing. Good luck with your chemo treatment tomorrow. See if you can have Judy (my favorite oncologist nurse) administer your drug. You are tough and have many people cheering for you so, "You Go Girl!" I will be thinking about you and am sending hugs your way. Love, JO

I'm just struggling with the fact you have that all done! Paris is right, super organisational woman! Do we still get a Christmas card halfway through next year from you? ;o) July just wouldn't be the same without one, lol.
