Wow November was a long month this year for some reason. I'm so ready for December to kick in full force. I'm excited that my boys are so into Christmas this year. Blake woke up the other day and asked to listen to Christmas music. I hear the boys singing along with the radio all the time now. We listen to a 24 hour Christmas music station. The house is decorated. And best of all I'm almost done with my Christmas shopping.
I decided I wanted to get some of the more daunting tasks done before the end of November so that I could enjoy the holiday season with my sons. I managed to get my Christmas cards done, ok so I was short a few envelopes and haven't bought stamps yet, but still. I have the boys shopping done, we have a few things to pick up or wait for them to be shipped and then stocking stuff. I have a few more small projects for the grandparents to do, but nothing major.
Tomorrow starts our Christmas countdowns. We have 3 this year. Each day we will open one Christmas story to read together. We have a magnetic cookie tray that we will take one "cookie" off each day to countdown to Christmas. This year each of the boys also made a Santa that is hanging on their bedroom door. Each day they will add one cotton ball to it to fill in Santa's beard.
I hope you are enjoying getting ready for the holiday season. I know we are!
