Christmas Is Coming!
Have any of you done your Christmas Shopping yet?
If so, how much is done: 25% complete ... 50% ... 75%?
I went Christmas Shopping last week and did about 80% of my shopping. Woo Hoo!!! It was FUN to buy a couple of things for each of the at-home kids (and Papa). We don't make a big focus on presents ... and we have definitely had years where we didn't have money for any presents ... but this year it was nice to be able to go out and buy a few things.
I shopped at Kohls for our Christmas Eve Pajamas, and a new Christmas Table Cloth to go along with my new decorating. They had a good sale going on for each of the things on my list.
I am so excited for my Christmas Decorating this year. Oh. My. Yes. Last year, we pulled out a few decorations, but never even purchased a Christmas tree, as we were traveling to and from Houston for Jeremiah's wedding, and were gone from December 10 - 23rd. This year, not only will we be HOME for the month of December, but I am excited to figure out how to decorate with all of my new furniture. (The dining room hutch and living room bookshelves give me more flat surfaces to decorate. Yippee!)
I would LOVE to hear what some of YOUR favorite Christmas traditions are. Decorating? Gifts? Yummy Treats?
