All Wrapped Up...

Thats it. Its over. I believe everyone was happy and got what they wanted.
Minimal returns/exchanges this year. That makes me happy..

Although, I think next Christmas, we'll do things a little different. I have a few ideas swirling around in my head...

I'd like to say we'll be in a bigger place next Christmas but I'm thinking its not going to happen.
Its a funny little thing called 'good credit' thats holding us back.

We'll have to work harder on that.

Happy New Year!

wow! December is flying by!
Seems like yesterday I was thinking - how am I going to get the cheesecake for Turkey Day made in time- and now its 2 1/2 weeks until Christmas.
Did a majority of the shopping today!
Bless Rob- he went clothes shopping with me and there was no complaining. He's great!
The kids are just about done. Just need to get stocking stuffers and they are finished!

Got the tree up tonight. It has lights and they are twinkling next to me. It smells nice too. Tomorrow we'll do ornaments before Z goes off to swim practice. Then I can wrap and get it out of my room and under the tree.

I am thankful that my kids don't believe in Santa. No more hiding gifts until they go to bed. No more giving Santa credit for the *really* cool gifts they wanted and so excitedly rip into Christmas morning. That would bother some people but I am thankful I don't have to lie to them. Never felt right.
Nothing against those who do Santa & elves ( Texasbug- we need elf stories).

Thats all- I'm tired..
