This may disgust many of you, but I'm almost done my Christmas shopping. The major stuff is pretty much out of the way.
I've even got my packaging and boxes lined up, tissue paper to match this year's theme, and have started working on the tags.
I really outdid myself this year. I love wrapping and giving presents more than anything, maybe even more than getting them, but that may be a stretch.
Now the real fun starts: because the must-do's are out of the way, I can have fun adding all of the extras to everyone's gifts! We've booked our annual December Christmas-shopping event in Chicago... because of Ben's schedule I am getting almost a whole week to do my thing while he's in meetings and then I have five days in Phoenix on the way home to rest up (and shop some more)! Last year I stopped at Target on the way to the airport and schlepped home the much-coveted Jones Soda Holiday Pack for the kids. It was a disgusting hit! I 've started scouring the internet for ideas and making my list and checking it twice! You'd better all stay on the "good list."
