I love the Christmas season. I love decorating the tree every year. I love finding the 24 hour Christmas radio station on my car radio and I love having more time to hang out with family and friends. I especially love that we get to celebrate the most important birthday ever! This year I am excited because my son and I are going to make Jesus a birthday cake. We’ve decided that Jesus would probably prefer a vanilla cake with vanilla frosting. (This is a relief since my son doesn’t like chocolate.) We’ve also decided to draw a Christmas tree on the cake with green icing and use sprinkles and candy for the ornaments. I am looking forward to making this cake more than anything else this season!
I love Christmas…I just don’t like shopping. I find it somewhat odd that I am considered a punctual person and a planner but when it comes to Christmas I am the worst procrastinator. It’s like for the last 11 months I saved every ounce of procrastination I have just so I could use it for the month of December.
It is December 2nd. I have not gone shopping yet. For a punctual/planning person this seems odd to me. And for a punctual/planning person you would think this would freak me out…but it doesn’t. I never start shopping until after Thanksgiving. My husband has already taken care of the gift for our son for which I am thankful. My husband has also clued me in to what he would like for Christmas which will make shopping for him fairly easy too. 2 gifts down…many more to go.
I’m thinking, that today, I just might start my Christmas shopping…or it might happen tomorrow. 🙂
Perhaps I would enjoy shopping more if this would take place in my mall today!
