I slept in every day the last four days, yet I am bone-weary tired. I didn’t do Black Friday — never have, actually — but definitely got a lot of Christmas “errands” done:
1.) We put up our tree yesterday.
2.) We decorated the living room, including “snow” on our coffee table with Nativity scene.
3.) I bought most gifts throughout the year, so I wrapped them or packaged them for shipping.
4.) We went shopping for the mom I picked from our church’s giving tree this year. I wrapped up those presents.
5.) I went food shopping and cooked.
6.) And managed to sneak in and see a holiday movie with the family: Rise of the Guardians. We watched the 3D version and it was stunning. The plot was cute, too.
Today I am taking the kids out of school early so that we can get our holiday photo taken. I hate taking the kids out of school for this, but the weather has been iffy here so it’s already been rescheduled once. Plus, this is the main gift for many family members, including grandparents, aunts and uncles. Let the Christmas countdown begin…
Where are you in the hustle and bustle this holiday season? Do you plan to travel?
