‘Tis the Season…

‘Tis the Season…

I love Christmas shopping (although I don’t love doing it when the stores are full of crazy crowds, so I do it in November). Thinking about how excited someone will be when they open the gift they’ve always wanted gives me the warm fuzzies. So when my family decided to draw names this year, I thought it would bother me. But actually, it’s been a blessing. As the family expands, it’s becoming more of a case of just buying a gift for the sake of buying a gift, rather than finding something thoughtful and meaningful. And with fewer people to buy for, we can afford to spend a little more on the gifts we do buy. All good.

The sun is shining today, which also puts me in a good mood, despite the fact that Brayden was up at 5:30 this morning. Chris is taking Justin to see Franklin’s Family Christmas at the community theatre tonight, so we’ll see how that goes. Justin is a big fan of Franklin but we’re not too sure how he’ll do with a live stage show that goes for an hour and a half. (And no, we didn’t even consider taking Brayden — sitting still is really not his forte.)

Both boys are napping, which (yawn) sounds like a good idea to me…
