Getting Ready for the Holidays ... Week #9

Did you do any black Friday Christmas shopping? How’s your Christmas list looking now?

How about those handmade gifts? Are you where you want to be or need to be to have them completed in time for gift giving THIS year?


What did you get done this past week? 

 What are you working on?

I did a bit more Christmas shopping and am now down to 2 more gifts and I’ll be done, shopping that is! Yippee … it’s been a long time since I’ve been this near done shopping at this time of the year! In addition to doing a bit more Christmas shopping, I printed out labels for the Christmas cards we hand deliver locally and at church and labels for the cards we mail. Our church does this really neat thing where we bring our Christmas cards to church and hand-deliver them to each other. Everyone does it and it’s so nice to see everyone in the Christmas spirit handing out their cards. We also hand-deliver, along with home-made fudge, the Christmas cards that we give out to our neighbors.

It’s also time to think about holiday attire. Do you like to wear Christmas themed clothing? How’s your holiday attire looking for this year? Do you need to make any repairs, get creative with what you have or maybe purchase something new?

My husband has finally gotten enough ‘Christmas themed ties’ to wear a different one each Sunday. The kids at church love his ties! It has taken us several years of shopping after Christmas sales to find enough to meet this need at a price we were willing to pay. Both my husband and I really enjoy the Christmas season and go all out … that is, as much as our budget will stand!

One more thing, the mailman has already delivered one Christmas card to us, has anyone else gotten any yet?
