4 Days to Christmas!

Can you believe that! 4 DAYS!!
I went to the grocery store last night late, mainly because its just not busy late in the evenings and I can breeze right through the store. I listened to one of my favorite podcasts "The Moth", while shopping at the store. Makes the time pass by quickly and I can really listen and my mind isn't thinking about work or all those other things that interrupt your thoughts. But here is my question... is it rude for me to do this, listen to my podcast while I shop? I'm still aware and say hi and or smile at people, still try and be pleasant and I always take off my headset and turn off my iphone while going through the check out but I was wondering what other people thought about this.  I'd love to hear your thought about shopping and listening to music etc. 

Here is a cute little something for you....
Bella gets a free turkey every Christmas for being a pet therapy dog for our local cancer center and every year I take a picture of her in front of the tree with her big frozen turkey! 
Thought you all might like to see them too! 
Isn't she a cutie pie! Love her so much! Bella has been a therapy dog for almost 6 years. 
I love it and she loves it too! 

Every year I scrapbook our family Christmas card with my newest Christmas collection and this is our card from last year 2010 using my new Gingerbread Land paper collection. 



Have a great Wednesday! 
Enjoy last few days before Christmas! -Nikki

Don't forget our DT Call ends December 28th!

oh your layout is just way too cute! and the photo of your little girl is just adorable. my family has labs and goldens that are therapy dogs and it is such a wonderful thing! i truly believe the dogs know that they are helping others!

as for listening to your ipod--i don't think anyone cares. as long as you are aware of what is going on than who cares!!

have a great day!

What a cute page.
I think you are way more considerate than others at my store. They talk on the phone (loudly) throughout the store, love the idea of turning off the phone in the checkout. I must remember that since my boys have perfect timing to call then.
