Deck the halls...and all that crap

Today is going to be a quiet day. I'm going to straighten up the house, dip everything in my cabinets in chocolate, and get ready for a bunch of people who will be stopping by tonight. My DS and his girlfriend are coming out to help me dip things in melted chocolate after while and exchange their Christmas gifts since she will be traveling back to her parents house for the holidays. DD and her friend K are babysitting for one of their teachers this morning then off to meet some guys for a movie and lunch before heading to the basketball game tonight and then maybe back here to eat some of that chocolate. I have an After Prom planning meeting tonight.....yes we are already planning prom and the after prom party. I can not believe it! I was thinking the other night that prom dress shopping usually starts in January....which is almost here. Prom dress shopping, for those of you who have never had to do it, consists of weeks of going to different dress shops, trying on 200 dresses that weigh about 78 lbs. each and finally going back to buy the first one you tried on...if it is still there. Then comes the dreaded accessory shopping. Accessory shopping can take up to a month and sometimes you end up with 3 different necklaces that look perfect with your dress which means another month of trying them on together over and over. Last year DD's dress needed altered and the woman that altered it did not do a good job and DD spent prom night not being able to all. Her dress was that silky material that you couldn't change after you had it altered because the holes would have shown. It looked good and if she stood just right you couldn't tell that one of the straps was longer than the other. Needless to say we will be finding someone else to do the altering this year, if it is needed.
Hopefully I will have time to update before Christmas but in case I don't I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas.
