Christmas TogetherWe're here year round and even though we are scattered all over the world and most of us have never met face-to-face we find ways to celebrate the season together. From our annual Christmas exchanges to scheduled chats our Christmasing together is discussed here.
When DH's grandmother downsized her stuff to move in with her daughter, I inherited some cookbooks that have some holiday recipes so I might try some of those out. Also, I bought some icicle crafts for my daughter to help me with so we'll probably do those. Keep an eye out for holiday sales at Hobby Lobby and get my Christmas book and decorations in order. Those are my goals...hope they're not too ambitious!
This summer, I have been finding and buying Christmas cards. That's not easy to do. I did find one store closing out and they actually had cards with bears on them at a very cheap price. I do not know why I didn't buy them after Christmas like I usually do. I WILL remember to do it next year!!!
A Beary Merry Christmas to all!
I watch Christmas movies all the time in the summer. I think they make it seem like its just around the corner.
Also, sometimes when my mom and I go to the mall, if we see something about Christmas/for someone we'll get it. Like the other day we were at Limited Too, doing some early back to school shopping, and we found this gorgeous dress, and we decided it was my Christmas outfit.
Plus I have Christmas songs on my iPod that I listen to in the summer. I also look up ideas for gifts I can make and different cookie recipes.
I like listening to Christmas music and watchinc Christmas movies during the summer. We also often have Annabelle's wish playing, since DS loves watching all the animals and "Santi" as he calls the big jolly guy. Plus, I start thinking of Christmas presents around May, so Christmas is pretty much always on my mind.
I usually just start my gift shopping but this year will be the first that I celebrate Christmas in July. I have an evening planned with my boyfriend. I'm going to cook a traditional holiday dinner with all the trimmings. I even plan to decorate a little with a small table top tree and a few lights. Over at MHH we're celebrating the entire month with crafts, recipes and more.
