I’m having so much fun anticipating Christmas! We’ve been so busy but it’s the GOOD kind of busy, doing fun things.:) Yesterday my mom and I enjoyed a day at the spa and it was phenomenal! Nicole Jefferies Salon and Spa is one of my favorite places and my mom and I had such a great girlie day together! Jim’s mom was also in town and we did lots of shopping and fun family stuff. I didn’t want her to go! I think I’m pretty much done with my Christmas shopping and now I remember why I always wait until the last minute to buy gifts. I am so bad at delayed gratification and I want everyone to see what I bought them NOW!:) I get so excited about the things I found I just want them to open everything right away. Jim and I weren’t going to get much for each other but we ended up going a bit overboard (at least I did anyway). It makes me happy to get things for him though because he usually falls by the wayside. He’s such a low-maintenance guy and never asks for much so I wanted to give him a little extra TLC this season.
Gabriel, Grant and Garrett have been extra sweet so they ensure a spot on the “nice” list. Garrett has no clue of course but the other two boys discuss the elves, and Santa daily! I know we have a good balance though because they are well aware that it’s Jesus’ birthday and the true meaning of Christmas. I think that’s the balance, we have fun but they also understand the big picture. The boys don’t know it yet, but we have something planned for this weekend that I am so excited about! I’ll definatley post pictures afterwards but I’m keeping it under wraps until then!
