Finished!

So, um, usually I shy away from shameless bragging about my accomplishments. Or at least I try to. But I just had to post and say that as of this morning, we are all DONE shopping for Christmas! It's a great feeling. I've mentioned in the past that we tend to keep things simple, and that certainly helps.

And I know I'm going to be accused of being a Thanksgiving-Scrooge, but guess what we did this weekend? (It's the first time we've ever put it up BEFORE that other holiday -- what's it called again?)

For the record, I love Thanksgiving just as much as the next person. What's not to like about thankfulness and lots of good food?

But still, there's just something wonderful and special about Christmas, and I'm glad I'm done with the shopping so the focus can be on giving, sharing, and remembering the greatest gift of all, the Son of God, born in a stable and come to save us all.

I so wish I was done. I know what I'm getting for everyone, but I've only started. We like to do simple too, this has been our guideline for a couple of years: something they want, something they need, something to wear and something to read. The presents add up pretty fast though especially when you add in out of town grandparents etc. I'm so jealous!

Ahhhh, that must feel amazing!!! That's my one Christmas wish - to finish with the "commercial" Christmas stuff and move on to the good stuff!
