That is an excellent idea, Minta, to get some Christmas shopping finished early. And the kids would never suspect this early in the "season"!

After the kids get on the school buses DH and I and heading out to do some Christmas shopping for the kids.

So Love this time of the year!!!

Have a great day everyone!

If he's nice and cuddles back, I give him some kitty crunchies. But often as not he turns around and ignores me. He's all cat!

I practically live in sweatshirts at home and on weekends throughout the winter because they're soft and comfortable.

I'm actually feeling pretty lazy today. So I will probably put off deep cleaning the kitchen until tomorrow. Instead, I think I'll put out my fall stuff.
