Are You Ready?

Every year Christmas items and gifts are on display earlier and earlier! The retailers used to wait until the day after Thanksgiving. Now it's the end of October.

I love the atmosphere of Christmas and miss being able to go out with my list, dragging my hubby along. I can remember the year I decided I was going to buy all the grandkids sweatshirts and sweatpants (cause I loved wearing them around the house and I wanted them to dress just like Grandma :) Oh, it was fun getting them for the toddlers.

Now, I love to see all the Christmas decorations, the Angel ornaments, the people all excited, trying to get everything they want before they are sold out.

What can I say about 'Black Friday'? This will be the year Grandpa and Grandma will be taking Kat and Alyce home with us so Heather, Pato and Christian can go shopping all night. Whew! I'm glad I'm not doing that.

I won't be shopping as I'm not able to walk around to shop, but I'll be there in spirit. What do you have planned for your Christmas? Any new traditions? Leave me your tips and comment!
