Christmas Eve is 2 Days Away
Hey there. Are you guys ready? Have all the gifts been bought? Have all the cards been sent? Are you done with all the madness that is Christmas shopping? I'm glad to say that for the most part, the shopping is done and done. Only a few gifts need to wrapped and it is done and done.
As opposed to other years, we took a different approach to X Mas shopping and it actually worked out pretty well. Kids always get gifts, that is a given. They get gifts from mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, and aunts and uncles. You know who doesn't always get gifts? The adults! So this year it was changed up a bit with emphasis on getting the adults in the family gifts. Don't get me wrong, the kids will still get theirs, but a gift for the couples were a good idea this time around. It made shopping extremely easy, since you avoid those oh so popular toy heavy stores and the lines were more tolerable than those at toy stores. I'm not saying that it is something that should be done every year, but after all the years the adults get all the kids in the family gifts, it will be nice for them to receive one that is not part of a secret Santa exchange. Best of luck, for those procrastinators out there and to all, have a great holiday! Later!
