What some may call a "guest post" is what I might call "just me rambling."

A few days ago Shannon, the adorably sweet writer of Coupon Mommy of 2... Now 3 approached me about writing a guest blog post for her. To which I immediately responded, "Huh?" Not knowing what to write about, ideas floated through my head for a day or two (which I left poor Shannon hanging) and I finally agreed and thought, well, sure, why not?

To see my oh-so-eloquent post on my thoughts about my mail carrier being Santa Claus and how I feel about my blog and my blogging friends, head on over there and check it out. While you're there, if you decide to follow Shannon's recipe and make some peanut butter balls, be sure and send a few this way because it would make my husband pretty happy. He's a big fan and, since I'm not, he has to wait for his own mother to make them for him every year. That's the holiday spirit, right?

Speaking of which, I can't wait to see the look on Big Sister E's face when she sees the following pictures tomorrow morning:

Okay. Our living room. Nothing exciting.

What the? Where did HE come from?

That's right, shhhh. He's a sneaky one, that Santa Claus.

Thanks to Nichol over at Kiddies Corner Deals for hosting a fun giveaway from Capture the Magic, because now our Christmas morning is going to have a little extra excitement!

I hope you all have a wonderful and safe holiday and get to enjoy some quality time with your families... Here's to a great end to 2009 and an even better beginning for 2010!
