It's Coming!

Yes, yes, Christmas is coming. Only 108 days.  Will you be ready? I sure hope to be.

With my trusty notebook in hand I've been going over everything I need to do before the big day arrives.  So far I have my budget, gift list, shopping list and holiday menu done.  I really need to get on the ball shopping for gifts. So starting this week I plan to start shopping. I spent the day Saturday with my nieces and nephews to find out what they wanted for Christmas.  My niece is into the Whimpy Kid books.  She already has two so I will get her the other two I saw in Walmart.  She also wants some games for her DS.  My nephew just wants games for his XBox.   I want to have all my gifts purchased before Thanksgiving.

Then there's those craft projects to complete.  Today I finished putting together a holiday mix playlist then burned them on to CDs.  I'm also making photo calendars for the second year. They were such a big hit last year.

Yesterday I was in the mood to bake so I made some shortbread cookies.  I decorated them with color sugar for a festive look.  The cookies  turned out good but would have been better with icecream.  So I went to the store today to pick up a pint of vanilla icecream.  I know what I will be snacking on tonite.
