Christmas is only 4 days away!! Each year I get older the time goes by faster so when I am 40 I am going to have start planning for Christmas in October. I already start planning for Christmas super early though as far as presents are concerned. Other years I have bought people presents throughout the year. When I pass by something in the store that makes me think of someone I buy it right then. If I don’t buy it then I probably just missed the best opportunity to buy the perfect gift for that person. This year I wanted to use baby J’s picture on some gifts so I had to wait until late November/early December to order those so that I could use more current pictures of him.
This year we are having Christmas at home and we plan on having Christmas at our house from now on. Because of this, I want to start some of our own traditions. We already have one tradition. We watch It’s a Wonderful Life around Christmas every year. Since we will be home, I am going to make this a Christmas Eve tradition! I also make cookie press cookies every year because these are the cookies my grandma would always make and have set out for us at our family Christmas. I would love to have a bunch of traditions that my children can associate with this time of year. And I would love to hear what your traditions are! Please comment and let me know. You might give me some great ideas.
