Okay. I know it's only May, but these past couple of days I've been brainstorming ideas for this Christmas. I've made a list of things I want to do this year. I always seem to run out of time every year, so this year I have a Christmas account at my bank which I will receive in October. I plan to get all of my Christmas done BEFORE December. I want to enjoy December!
I've started planning our annual cookie exchange: what kind of games to play, list of invitees, etc.
I've started planning what we are doing the weekend of Christmas and Christmas day. Last year we went to my grandmother's which was about 1 1/2 away. It is always so hectic and so crowded. This year we are staying home. I love Grandma, but I can't stand so much stress on Christmas day! Plus I have to work the next day. I figured we spend Christmas day evening with my mom. Christmas Eve is spent with my hubby's family.
I've decided that I want to throw a Christmas party this year. Now I'm trying to decide what kind of party: appetizer party? dessert party? Gingerbread house making party? Pizza and chicken wing party?
I know I'm probably crazy, but I just love Christmas! Actually, I love the months of September-December. September and October are all Autumn for me and I love that time of year! I pull out the fall decorations on September 1st and the Halloween decorations on October 1st. I usually have a Christmas Crafts Open House in my home in November, so some Christmas decorations come out then. The main decorations don't usually come out until the day after Thanksgiving and the tree goes up that Saturday.
Well, enough rambling! Just wanted to see if I'm really crazy!
