I went to 2 stores, yesterday. I went to Target and Big Lots. When checking out, both cashiers wished me a Merry Christmas!
The young man at Target and I could've talked a bit. I bought "The Polar Express" to read to my daughter's class and he talked about it being read at school and getting a bell when it was over. I told him that I'm reading it to my daughter's preschool class on Wednesday and that I'll give them a bell to put in their pocket (or up their sleeve if they have no pocket) and that we'll make a simple necklace when we're finished. I plan on giving that book to my daughter when I finish reading it. She gets a cd and an ornament with it. I bought a special edition. I already have the book at school but this way I won't have to remember to bring it home.
