The countdown to the holidays has just begun. I have to start shopping for the holidays. For several people it’s too soon, but having a big family is never too early. Usually I make my first layaway the day after Halloween starting with the three oldest. After that, I do the little ones so they have more time to think what they want. They loved to write a few letters one to Santa (the big letter) and the other to their grandparents (one gift). My last gift to buy it will be for my husband after 31 years of marriage it’s getting difficult to obtain something special for him.
I have my Christmas tree already up with no decoration yet. I will décor my tree and my house on Thanksgiving Day with the kids. It’s a tradition we all want to keep.
I’m planning the menu for that day with the help of my daughter. My older kids want to add their own specialty. We do a secret Santa on that day. The rules for the secret Santa are a silly prank, a postcard, and a handmade gift no more than 10 dollars.
I still have another week and a half to prepare meanwhile, I have been watching and enjoying Christmas movies from the Hallmark Channel. It makes me want to have my home already decorated. The spirit of the holiday season has already invaded my home.
