santahat Who's already making plans for Christmas 2011?


Ok folks, we can be honest around here...who's already stashing gifts, making menus, dreaming up new cookie recipes or designing next year's decor?
Let's hear those 2011 ideas!

Hardly a day goes by that I don't think about something related to Christmas 2011. I'm really excited about some the items I picked up at a wonderful Chirstmas shop in Galena IL last month. Can't wait to bring them out for display.

Hubby and I were in Galena for a Fall visit a couple of years ago. I picked up some things to put away for Christmas that year as well. It's kind of a Norman Rockwell like atmosphere there in terms of the views and there were some nice little gift shops.
