Hallowthanksmas.....

Thursday, October 10, 2013

Well it just seems to weird to go into Target or Walmart & already see Christmas decorations.  Now, I love Christmas as much as the next person but I am not even prepared for Halloween, let alone Thanksgiving.  How can I even start to think about Christmas?  I had planned, this year, to even decorate for Halloween, that has not happened.  In fact, the fall decorations that I put out last year are still out on the fireplace this year.  I guess I should at least dust them off & put them out so they are more visible.

With Christmas only being a little over two months away, I guess I should start trying to figure out what to get the kids.  With Miss O being so small, she will be easy, I can get her something she needs-or some toys-maybe her first baby doll (for our house).  The boys on the other hand will want something much more expensive and out of reach, like for each of them to have a tablet or a Playstation 4.  I guess we need to buckle down and get this figured out so they are not searching under the tree for empty bags & boxes this year.

Billy & I are pretty simple to buy for for Christmas, last year I don't think we even bought each other a gift due to funding being so tight.  We did go do something later together, but this year I want to try to at least get him something thoughtful.  I have many different ideas, because there are many different things he's mentioned wanting or needing over the past year.  Some items would be hard to buy, like a Seminole charm & necklace.  Yuck.  I would be embarrassed to buy something like that (GO GATORS) lol.  I guess I better suck it up hu?  He doesn't seem to want to change sides anytime soon.

This weekend we are going to my moms for a joint birthday dinner for all the August, September, October & November birthdays.  Should be fun, it's been a while since we've gotten together.  I'll post photos later :)

I am really loving my three day weekends, not so much the long four day work week-but so far it seems worth it.  Since our visits with Miss O are on Sunday's right now, I can get up early & go to bed late knowing I don't have to get up early on Monday, oh yeah.
