What to do with Christmas???

I have a tendency to get a little overwhelmed with Christmas. It is a really fun time of year, I love all the decorations. I love how excited the boys get about the lights and Santa. The part that truly overwhelms me is the gift buying. I have a belief that most of my family buys everything they want. If they want it, they buy it. Therefore, I find most of my family unbelievably hard to buy for. And because it is so hard for me, I have a tendency to buy them gift cards. Then I feel bad because I am giving them something really impersonal. Then it becomes overwhelming. Maybe if I had a bunch of time to go shopping and someone to watch the boys, it would be different. I should probably try to just do a little bit at a time over the whole year so that when it is the beginning of December I am not feeling like I do!
Oh well, in less than a month I will totally be over it!!!

This weekend I made some really cute Xmas cards to send out. I am working on getting a cute picture of the boys to put in them and then I will get them out. Hopefully this coming weekend! I had a great time stamping them. I am really happy with how they turned out, pretty and glittery! While I was stamping Shannon took the boys to CALM (our little zoo). They had a lot of fun. I have tickets to go back there sometime before Xmas as they really cool light show out there.

Tomorrow is our company holiday party. We are having at at the local casino. A Texas Hold'em holiday party. It is a luncheon so we will go at 11:30, have lunch at noon, and then they teach you how to play, and then have a tournament. It should really be a lot of fun. I will report back on how I do in the tournament!

Well, Happy Monday!
