Only 27 Days. . .

Whew, only 27 days until Christmas! We have never been 'Black Friday' shoppers. We'd rather spend a quiet day at home resting up from our indulgent turkey day eating spree. Today I'll put away the fall decorations & do a little Christmas decorating. Hubby & I put up our outside lights on Wednesday evening so we can check that off our list. I would like to have all Christmas decorating completed by Monday, we'll see what happens.

Time to get organized. I need to write down the Christmas gift list that's floating around in my head. I must finish sewing little E's quilt, along with some other Christmas sewing projects I have planned. I want to monogram a Christmas stocking for Ethan. Even though he won't have his 1st Christmas until next year I still want to hang a stocking for him.

Enjoy your day!

I never shop on Black Friday either! It's usually my day to get out the Christmas decorations, but this year I'll be in Branson. We're leaving here in a little while. I will be shopping there today and tomorrow....hoping to find some bargains.
I think that's so special that you're making Ethan a quilt and a stocking. When is he due?
Oh, I can't wait to be a grandma one day! I know you're excited.
Enjoy your Black Friday!

Your day is very similar to ours. I'm going to get as much decorating done as possible while the boys are in the mood. Boys tend to think it just happens - I like for them to help!

I have a pretty good start on my Christmas list. It feels good to at least have an idea of where I'm going with it.

GM Carol, I too just got my fall decorations pack to put up in the attic. We light our outdoor lights on Thanksgiving night, so that's done. Now I have to decorate the tree at our clubhouse today, then I'll start on the inside of our house. I love decorating for Christmas.


Hugs,
Chris

I plan to decorate also the rest of the weekend. No power shopping for me either. probably a quick run somewhere to get white lights that I need for the outside garland. Yesterday's Thanksgiving meal was probably one of my worst! We had a hard time getting it together. Will plan better next year. On to the next big event. Grant's graduation on Dec. 19th. Love you
