Ok I just have to say I love, love, love Christmas. My employees say I make them sick. My oldest daughter and I make them fudge and cookies, and my youngest son and daughter help me make them stockings with there names and then stuff them full of new ornaments,pot holders, etc. We usually buy one of there closes grandkids a present or gift card. I buy a huge box of candy for the teachers, and cupcakes for all the support staff. Secretaries get vases with fresh Christmas flowers and an ornament. The principal get whatever new ornament and stocking that is neat and speaks to me. Uh, yeah I'm bad I guess. My husband and I load up the kids the day after Thanksgiving, go buy them hot cocoa, turn on the Christmas radio station..it starts in October ya know? hehe..we drive just outside of Indy to a tree farm , and get our tree. It goes up that night and we spend the next day baking and decorating the tree. Then that Saturday or Sunday all the yard Decorations comes out and 5-6 hours later I have my Christmas wonderland. Then I really start present buying!!
Last year I wasn't that good because my pain levels were so bad I had a hard time with all of it. It is usually my norm though. I buy 3-4 days after christmas for the next year. I have had the new stocking, x-mas shirts, some stocking stuffers since Dec. 28th of last year so I guess I go a little early. With 5 kids and everyone else I have to start early or I couldn't do it all. I have 5 nieces and 1 nephew as well so I have to get family board games and make cookies and such for all of them.
See you started something with me..ok I'm done. Thank you, I am so excited now!!! Heather
