One of our yearly holiday traditons
is I take a Friday off
near the end of November
grab Kat & Sam after school
and we go shopping for their Christmas presents
from Trevor & I
I used to get off pretty easy
a trip to Wal-Mart
a painful 2 hours in the toy department
then a quick pick of an outfit
and we were done
my how times have changed!
Although yesterday was Black Friday
in the states
Canada has not quite reached the pandemonium
of our neighbors in the south
and thank heavens for that
off to the mall we went and after 4 hours
and a food court supper
I dropped them off ~ a little poorer
but my ~ what a great time we had
we did go to Wal-Mart
and goofed around a bit with the Santa hats
as you can see
they make my heart sing ~ these 2 girls of mine.
Today the Christmas music is on
and I am in the midst of getting the decorations out
in an attempt this year to simplify
I am once again failing miserably
I guess I am much too attached to some of my material things
but you know what ~ that's ok
I will be fa la la la laing!
I am throwing around the idea of going out to the
local craft fair tonight ~ still up in the air on it
I may just have a nice long bath
and snuggle in with a movie.
Hope you are having a wonderful week-end
and that your heart is full of joy.
