I would normally be groaning but I'm excited this year because instead of blowing big cash on Christmas crap, I'm blowing little cash on Christmas crap and big cash on a family vacation.

Its all I can do to keep my mouth shut and not ruin it for the kids.

The Christmas season isn't all about financial obligations. It is an opportunity to reflect on the good things we have in life- like family. [Nice to hear about your family reunion Pennwoman].

Ugh, Thanksgiving.
My sister (did you hear the angels singing at the sound of her name?) will be home, with her 2 manic dogs, which means 4 dogs here.... and my mother handles stress so poorly these days, even good stress, so I am dreading that.
But Christmas will be fun! My kids being all home and safe is beyond wonderful.

Hey Martina can't she kennel the dogs, maybe there is room for my ex-husband and wife.

Can't wait! I've already been planning our Christmas music tour of the elementary schools with the choir at our school, performances at nursing homes and at the local malls, and the school concerts. We won't actually start rehearsing the music till after our fall concerts at the end of October, but the kids always love working on Christmas (oh, excuse me - WINTER) music the most! And you can call it what you want to be PC, but the kids all say it's Christmas concert, Christmas music, and Christmas break.

With all the family visiting with my daughter-in-law in the hospital, we had a chance to discuss who would get what for the grandson for Christmas. Devon has discovered Mickey Mouse and already has an MM costume for Halloween. Course, by Christmas, he may have moved on to the next phase of character joy.

Would be a long trip! We do have groups come in and carol, etc. It's really not bad working on holidays, except for missing out on friends and family.

Way too early, Martina.

I'm just settling into a new season here - hikes to present - some with new routings to confirm, new step/aerobics, bridge schedule/partners, lawn renovation, replenishing wine cave for winter, next vacations . . .

Leem know when we're down to 7 weeks.

Hey Bobo, maybe you could take the dogs for Thanksgiving and Pennwoman could take your ex and his wife for Christmas!

Okay, I'll provide the groan.

A young boy begins diligently working on his list for Santa, which includes, amongst other things, a puppy, a bicycle, and the latest gaming console. After his lengthy list is complete he writes Santa a brief note.
"Dear Santa,
If ou give me everything on my list, I promise to clean my room and stop teasing my sister for one whole year."
The boy reviews his note, decides his promises are a bit unrealistic, crumples it up, and throws it in the trash. His second note reads:
"Dear Santa,
If you give me everything on my list, I promise to clean my room and stop teasing my sister for one whole month."
Again, he decides he cannot possibly keep those promises and promptly destroys the letter. He then sneaks into the living room and grabs the Virgin Mary figurine from the Nativity Set. He puts the figurine into an empty shoe box, wraps the shoe box in several layers of duct tape, and shoves the shoe box in the back of his closet. He then begins composing his final note.
"Dear Jesus,
If you ever want to see your mother alive again..."

My hubby has already hidden the first present!

This will be my first Christmas without my daughter, so that will be hard, but hubby and I are looking at it as a chance to start a whole new set of Christmas traditions. For starters, we bought new ornaments for the tree at the after sales last year and we'll be decorating in black, red, and silver. I'm excited, but then, Christmas is my favorite holiday. Great times with the fam, great food, presents, carols and all to celebrate the birth of my Savior. Pretty cool!

What a great idea, I remember how weird it was when my son wasn't home for Christmas, and then when my daughter, was home briefly but then headed to Boston to be with the bf's parents.....so weird to have Christmas not be all about the kids! making new tradtions is just a brilliant way to look at it!
