bakechef, I was amazed at how quickly I picked up thumb typing.

TL, I looked at them and I decided I'd pass for now. I use the Notes app on my iPhone. I can set up a list with check boxes. It works for me right now.

I'm sure that works well. The advantage of Our Groceries is that when you share it with someone in your household, it updates their list as you add stuff or cross it off and you can use it on the web.

Dawg, how old are the kids? When I've been stumped for Christmas gift ideas for the out-of-towner grands and not really knowing what they have or what they want, I've given them nice warm flannel jammies and fun slippers. I've also included soft fleece blankets and pillows. They've all liked them, even the older ones. If baby bro and SIL aren't any help with ideas, they take what they get!

Cheryl and Kay, great ideas! Thanks! These go on next year's list. I finally gave up. Got the 3yo a dumptruck that comes apart and morphs into other truck-type stuff, and comes with its own drill. The 8yo got a a high quality magic kit with 10 tricks that even stump adults. Love Amazon Prime!

Thanks, TL. SO has no interest sharing the shopping list duties.

I'm taking a break from wrapping gifts. Also just got the large part of the kitchen counter cleaned up and emptied of everything in preparation to make cookies tomorrow. Tyler's kindergarten teacher is having a bake sale on Friday, and all proceeds will go to his classroom for art supplies and fun new things for their little science center. After doing a little thinking about what to make, I decided on snickerdoodles. I have some fun little cellophane-type goodie bags left over from last year, so tomorrow morning I'm going to get started on a couple of batches.

I hope it goes well. Teachers put out a good amount of their own money on supplies, and it shouldn't have to be that way. We're a small town, so just in case the proceeds are a little lacking, daughter and I are giving her a cash donation and providing boxes of graham crackers, etc. for the kids' snacks. I'm sure that will help. It's all for the greater good!

What are you doing?

That's so sweet of you, Cheryl. I agree, teachers buy so many necessary classroom supplies out of their own money. Been there, done that. Have the tee shirt.

DH has an Ugly Christmas Sweater contest tomorrow at work. I have one that looks fine on me, but will look strange on a dude. It also has shoulder pads. I think we've got this.

I've also provided DH with a Santa hat. Unfortunately the batteries are dead on my Christmas light necklace to accent it.

Sadly, after all my work, DH doesn't want his picture taken, which is the point of the contest. Men.

Oh, how I'd love to see a pic! There are some hilarious Ugly Christmas Sweaters going around on FB. I wish I would have saved some of my sweaters from years ago....
