According to the 23rd annual survey, the cost of “The Twelve Days of Christmas” is $19,507 in 2007, a 3.1 percent increase over last year.
Why did PNC start tabulating the Christmas Price Index?
It all started 23 years ago as a way to engage clients of PNC predecessor Provident Bank during the traditionally light holiday weeks. What hatched as the creative brainchild of the bank’s then chief economist has since grown into one of PNC’s most popular and anticipated economic reports.

Last night we had Munchkin’s first swimming lesson of this session! And she did great!
At first she was very apprehensive about the whole thing. We haven’t been swimming since last summer when we were in Nova Scotia.
She was on her back and kicking her feet and she’s try to roll over to be on her tummy. She had so much fun!
If you don’t count throwing up on the deck. She had swallowed some water and started coughing. Knowing Munchkin the way I do, I knew that she was going to be sick so we go to the edge of the pool as quicky as possible. She did throw up but not in the water! Thank goodness, or they would have had to clear the pool. I’m sure everyone would have just love to have their first class shortened because of us. But we got cleaned up and got back in the water.
Swimming ended at 6:30pm, and by the time we got home it was 7:00. Munchkin was asleep by 7:15!
Last night might not have been the best of nights, but Munchkin ended up having a pretty good day. She went to sleep around 12:45 and was up at 3:50am. She was down until 9…so that’s pretty good.
Mom (Grandma) arrived at 9am and I fed Munchkin. She didn’t eat a lot but I didn’t want to force her to eat because I didn’t want her to throw it all back up. So Mom held munchkin while I had cereal and coffee and then it was off to the doctors.
Munchkin was supposed to get her 2 month shot…only 2 weeks late but it didn’t end up happening. Dr. L thought it would be too much for her as she has been sick. So we have to go back next Monday.
Good news…Hubby is starting to feel human again. Thank goodness. I love Munchkin and all but it is nice to have a break. He misses cuddling with her so when he’s up for it he can hold and cuddle her all he wants!
Mom and Dad are coming up for the RV show on Saturday at the International Centre and have offered to take care of Munchkin if Hubby and I want to go out. Woo hoo! Hubby wants to go to the RV show with them. So maybe we’ll go to the show, have dinner with them and then go out to a movie!
Well, to night is a good TV night. Everwood is on at 9, The Bachelorette finishes today. Tomorrow is the season premier of Amazing Race and at the same time on another channel is the SERIES finale of NYPD Blue. Why do they do that? Amazing Race is going to lose because how can I miss the series finally of such a great show?
**Editied** Just looked at the TV schedule…no Everwood and The Bachelorette is on now! Oh, and American Idol is on too! Good thing for the “last channel” button.
