Could this really be?

It's only 9:30 in the morning, a Monday morning, and I'm writing my second post of the day! How can that be?

And what to write about?....Why, Christmas of course!....
I was watching 60 minutes last night and Andy Rooney was complaining about how Thanksgiving gets pushed aside because of the commercialization of Christmas and the almighty dollar! Oh my gosh he is so right!! We all realize this don't we? But here I sit getting ready to write about Christmas shopping when Thanksgiving is in 4 days.

Just let me clear one thing up. I haven't put up my tree, I have leaves spewed across my lawn and a Thanksgiving pumpkin on my mantle. On Thursday, I'll have a house full of family and a big turkey sitting on the table. So Andy Rooney, please forgive me for starting my Christmas shopping early! It must be done!!!

I've been picking my children's brains this past week for ideas. I am blessed with grateful and appreciative children. They don't ask for anything really. Which is wonderful, but makes shopping a bit more difficult. So one kid at a time. My toddler will be easy. She can't tell me what she wants so I have to take cues from her.

She loves to stick things (fingers, food, toys) in everyone's mouth. She'll definately get a cute little baby doll. One that comes with a bottle or a pacifier. She loves pots and pans and my kitchen cabinets! So we'll be checking into a Little Tikes Play kitchen for sure. She also loves to climb on top of things, knock things over and throw things. I'm thinking I'll get her the WWE Blow Up Wrestling Ring for Babies. Just joking! No one really sells that kind of stuff! :)

Off to the toy store....

It is so much more difficult to shop for those older kids. My oldest has big money items. Yikes. More expensive as the get older too. Hope shopping went well. Just read your profile. We used to live in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, and Portsmouth. Very beautiful there. My husbands Mom and Dad are still living in Chesapeake. We used to attend Glad Tidings church. Ever hear of it? Just nice to be familiar with places others are blogging from.
I will be back around!
