AVR News Update
Not a whole lot going on this week as I've been reading and reading. I started my 12 Days of a Kensington Christmas and fiddled with my blog a bit while I procrastinated writing reviews. Check out my Upcoming Features page and tell me what you think. I don't have everything filled in yet, but I'm getting there. I decided a page would be better for showing what was upcoming and they would all be in one spot.

Did some Christmas shopping and am almost done. Hard to believe there's only a week and a half left before Christmas. This year has just flown by! I need to get our champagne bottle for New Year's Eve and a trip to Dollar Tree is on the schedule to get air horns for the kids.

More reading is planned for this coming week and hopefully finish the last of the shopping. Then I can get wrapping. My most hated part of the season. :P But I'll also get some nommy nomnoms baked and that I don't mind so much doing.

That's it for me. AVR News Update signing off. May all your books enthrall you.
