It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Is anyone else getting into the Christmas spirit? I’m not sure what it is — the radio stations playing non-stop Christmas music, everyone putting out Christmas decorations, being bombarded by Christmas the minute I walk into each and every store — but I’m shamefully getting into the Christmas spirit and Thanksgiving isn’t even here yet. However, I refuse to decorate our house until after Thanksgiving. Actually, I probably won’t do much decorating until after Abbi’s birthday because I just feel like I’m too busy to take that project on.

I have started thinking about Christmas shopping though. I will most likely do all of my shopping online this year because shopping with Abbi, well let’s just say that if the toys going into the cart don’t come back out for her to play with she likes to throw a fit. Not that she does the whole temper tantrum thing, but I really don’t want to hear about how she wants to play with the toys all day, only having to explain to her that they are for someone else. So online it is.

And what to get for Abbi? Hmm. The tough thing is that her birthday is Dec 1 and then we have Christmas. I have a few ideas. She loves to build towers so Legos are always good. She is also into “mixing” and “making” things so a play kitchen would be fun. There is also the idea of prepping her for the arrival of baby sister/brother, so what about baby doll stuff? So much I would love to get for her. Thankfully the husband is super easy this year. He needs clothes and WANTS a Nintendo Wii. Easiest year so far for him. And what do I want? Today, a sewing machine. Tomorrow, a bed. Yesterday, new dining room table. But I think we’re going to just get the Wii for both of us.

So there are my shopping plans. I’m not crazy brave enough to venture out to the stores the day after Thanksgiving, but to those of you who are, go get ‘em! Find those deals. Make me jealous!
