Christmas mania has hit our household like mad!
I've been an early Christmas shopper for years now. I prefer to be done before Thanksgiving, and this year is no exception, we're well on our way to being done with Christmas shopping!
However, with last year being the exception, I don't decorate before Thanksgiving for Christmas. (Last year we did because the baby was due the day after Thanksgiving. I knew if we didn't do it early it might not happen. Then she made us wait another week anyway!) This year the pressure is on though. Caden is our decorator and Christmas fanatic. He's had his small Christmas tree up almost all year! And he's been asking and asking when we're going to start decorating. They're getting more involved in the shopping a little and Caden and Caleb have done a lot of their shopping already too.
With the radio starting Christmas music early last week, we've been listening to Christmas music non-stop too since then!
I've still resisted the decorating. I like my turkeys, I didn't want to hide them away, but their infectious excitement has me being okay with Jesus's birthday celebration lasting longer too. We'll see how much longer I last holding out on the decorations. We're busy for the next week or so, so I can last that long at least! They really want Keith to get the lights on the house! (They're getting smart with their negotiations too. But Dad, it'll get cold soon to get outside and do it!)
I have wrapped some presents already too! Everything I could wrap, is wrapped already.
