Christmas is coming...a little too fast!

Well, Christmas is almost here, and I am finding myself very disorganized. I usually start buying Christmas presents well before the season is here. I barely started my shopping yesterday...yikes! I am so mad, because everything is very picked over, not to mention the crowds. We were in Walmart yesterday, on a Monday, and it was insane. I guess I am not the only one who procrastinates. I blame my procrastination on the cruise. It was all I could think about for ever, and now I am paying for it. I hope I can get it together in the next week! Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas, but the older I get, the more stressful it becomes. If you have any suggestions, pass them on!

Seriously... your pictures are so dang cute. Tell me that they are not taken in your house because it is way too cute! If mine were taken in my house there would probably be toys EVERYWHERE! I am with you on Christmas being stressful. I swear... every year I have less money to spend. I guess that I just need to remember the true meaning of Christmas!

My suggestion would be to shop online! I bought Troy's presents and my dad's present online this year. I mean, this probably won't help you this year since they take a while to ship, but tons of places have been offering free shipping promos (my favorite being Amazon), so it's been great! I hate shopping with crowds also. Anyway, just an idea for next year.

I have to say I was lying in bed last night and I started thinking about blogs for whatever reason. Then I thought, 'I wonder why Trina hasn't updated her blog in a while.' Then I remembered that you went private and that it won't automatically update in my sidebar any more. Duh.

Anyway, your Christmas picture is so cute. I'm so excited for Christmas too. And good luck getting the shopping out of the way!

Good luck hun... hang in there... I love the pictures... oh.. and to save on the whole crowd issue.. I buy my kids something each month on clearance somewhere.. Like a movie.. then a toy and when the winter stuff goes on sale in the spring.. I buy their clothes.. and I buy x-mas church clothes in August when sells come on again... so that by october or november I just have to get santa and then november and december are for Jason and I to buy for each other! We basically live on food storage for those two months because I avoid the stores like the plague!Good luck!!!
