I really can't wait for Christmas this year! The kids are so excited and I can't wait to see their faces when we open gifts! I was a little worried this year that we wouldn't be able to afford much. But thanks to Amazon.com's wonderful deals, we are set! I expect one more shipment and we are done. I have been feeling extra crafty this year, so most of the adults will be getting handmade gifts. I hope they like them!
We had a great time at the Christmas party we went to on Saturday. The kids were excited and had so much fun! It is so nice to catch up with family!
It was a three hour drive home. The kids were so tired. We spent Sunday just laying around. I can't wait to get things ready this week for Christmas. I am going to finish making gifts. I need to get caught up on laundry and get the house clean. All of my Christmas cards have been mailed out. I wanted to send cards to all of the MOPS group, but I just haven't had the time or money. Christmas always comes so fast. I run out of time every year! We have a cookie exchange at MOPS this Friday. I need to decide what cookies I am going to make.
We have decided this year, we will be having a birthday party for Jesus on Christmas Eve. We will go to church at 5 and then come home and have a party. We will tell the Christmas story, have birthday cake, and the kids will open one gift. I can't wait!
Don't forget the reason for the holiday and all that Jesus did for us.
Have a great week everyone!
