I did it! Christmas shopping was done for another year on Thursday, woo hoo! I am so glad that I started early this year and spread it out. My patience for crowded stores seems to have dwindled over the years and I’m pretty sure that, if I was only starting now, I’d probably spend Christmas in jail for stabbing somebody.
The other benefit is that most of the gifts that I bought were well thought out and I spent very little time wandering the mall wracking my poor brain for ideas. I have definitely impressed myself.
Last Sunday, we had our second annual tree decorating party. DJ Chick, and The Niece came over as well as The Boy’s new girlfriend. She is a sweet, shy, little thing who brought me a nice little hostess gift of candy. If they ever break up, I may just keep her and send The Boy packing. She’d certainly be cheaper on my grocery bill, lol!

There’s nothing like spending time with people you love eating, laughing and enjoying each other’s company. As a bonus, I even have a lovely Christmas tree to look at now
Whatever holiday you celebrate, I hope that each and every one of you get to spend time with the people you love and may all of your dreams come true
Your tree is lovely! So are the other pictures too. Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas!!ReplyDelete
Thank you Barb! Spending time with those we love is really good for the soul.Delete
Merry Christmas to you and yours too :)

Thank you Rick; the holidays have been really nice for us! Sorry I'm a little behind in responding; the holidays have been busy as well as being nice :)Delete
Yum- brie is my favorite! And using the good china always makes things more festive :)ReplyDelete
It's not often that I get the good stuff out so it was definitely time. Believe it or now, I had never tried brie before but will definitely do it again!Delete
Looks like a great party! Your tree was beautiful, you have a nice family, and yes, your son and his friend make an adorable couple. (You must convince him to keep her!) I hope your holidays were wonderful in every way.ReplyDelete
Thank you Brian! This one was definitely one of the better years. There was a lot of cooking, visiting, wine and laughs. What else could you ask for?Delete
