Ok.. it’s October.. but it’s never too early to start planning for Christmas.

It seems like every year our list grows and grows.. this year is no exception.. with the addition of several babies into my circle of friends and family..

I think I’ve said it before, but I’m a terrible gift giver.  I’m the type of person that would rather be told what the recipient wanted than having to guess myself.  I always feel that I guess wrong.

Granted, I have been getting better over the years.. but sometimes I put way too much thought into the gift that I stress myself out!

I need to start compiling my gift list..

This is going to be Little M’s second Christmas.. she’s old enough this year to open gifts, but I think she’s still to young to understand “Christmas.”  I’d love to do the Santa thing with her, but I still think she won’t understand..

When did you start doing the Santa thing with your little one?


Christmas Day is over.. the presents have been opened.. and now I have one confession to make..

I am a terrible gift giver…

There’s this certain stress that comes along with gift giving.  I can’t handle it.

I’m always worried that I won’t get them something they want.. and then I also worry that someone else will be giving them the same thing.

I do so much better when I’m given a list  of things that the gift-receiver would really like to have.  But it’s difficult to acquire when some people just don’t find gift-receiving a priority.

I survived the gift-buying.. but I can’t say that I enjoyed it much.

I take that back.. I love giving.. it’s just the stress of not knowing if I’m doing right is what gets me..

I think I just over-analyze the art of gift-giving too much.

Anyway.. I hope everyone had a great Christmas day.. and remember that Christmas is a SEASON.. not just a day.. and always remember why we even have Christmas.. thanks be to God!
