Oh the shopping

It's finally here shopping day, ok day I am ready 5am.  What was I thinking?  Well at least I get to have some quilty time with my mom for the first part of the day and then quilty time with the girls the second half the day with Grandma.

Do you recall challenge number 3 to make a personilzed gift for family and friends.  Make sure you check out your local craft store today they too should have some really great deals.  Be sure to take your kids along this is a great way for them to pick something up and make for that speical someone.

After the shopping is done take a little time to bake with your kids.  Our family loves to bake and freeze Christmas cookies at this time.  Then when it really starts to get holiday busy all you have to do is take them out and thaw and decorate.

Happy shopping

It's Thanksgiving day and this family is usually home putting up the Christmas tree.  While this year we are not home today.  We will have to do this family tradition after Thanksgiving.  This is a great time for our family to enjoy decorating for Christmas.  What a wonderful transition from being Thankful to celebrating the Birth of Jesus. 

Challenge for you to start a family tradition of decorating for Christmas together.  Of course if you start this tradition on Thanksgiving you'll want to get to bed early because the next day you will be shopping to fill under that tree.
