Ho Ho Ho & Stuff

61 days or so left until Christmas and boy am I busy... I decided after last years HORRIBLE Christmas experience this year we were going to be getting a head start.

I've already made a list and checked it twice and I've decided (as far as we're concerned) who's been naughty or nice. And while the girls are sleeping all tucked up in their beds I'm scrolling online catalogs for presents and doing wishlists in my head.

The girls big presents have all been taken care of. I will still have a few small things to pick up and stockings to stuff.

Several other gifts have been arranged for or taken care of as well. I want to be done by November 1st. No Black Friday shopping for me this least I hope not.

In other news, I already started the very small list of things I want to do with the girls this winter. I am so looking forward to Christmas that I have been thinking about my own very small wishlist.

Perhaps, I will post my wishlist in the near future...all 10 things on it... lol... good times.

I never start before black Friday, but this year I've gotten two things for my older son, and also made a bit of a wishlist for him. My younger son won't care about Christmas at all (he'll be 4 months old for it) so I'll just get stuff that I need for him probably - do you think anyone would notice if I put a box of diapers under the tree with his name on it?

Hi Allie,

Thanks for the comment! Yes, you should definitely give york peppermint patties another shot, they are so so great!

I love this post. I, too, am trying to solve all Christmas present dilemmas early! I asked all my family members to give me a wish-list before next weekend so I can potentially finish all Christmas shopping before December starts. Then all that will be left is to enjoy celebrating the real reason for the season and to spend time with each other. I'm not sure if it will work out like that, but a girl can dream, right?
