Merry Christmas!

With the Big Day nearly here, I decided to take another short break from blogging to concentrate on getting everything ready. I'll be back to announce the winner of my giveaway on Jan. 1. Until then, Merry Christmas!

Under the Tree

We've got an adequate stash of wrapped presents under our tree now and hubby and I are both getting excited to share what we got for each other, especially my husband. He confessed yesterday that one of his gifts to me has been in the planning stages for about 6 months. What a sweetie! He's so thoughtful! If I told him we could open presents early, he'd be all for it just so he could finally see the results of his long plan. I must admit my ideas for his gifts did not start six months ago, but they're no less thoughtful and I know he'll like them. That's the best part about gift-giving, isn't it? Seeing the joy on the faces of those you love.

Traditions, Or Lack Thereof

Growing up, our family had several holiday traditions that I think back on fondly. We still do a few, but with all the kids married and living in various parts of Utah, it's harder to keep them up. My husband and I have not officially started any traditions yet. We've tried a couple of things, but not much has stuck. We've been married for five years and don't have children yet, so maybe we're waiting for the kiddos to come before settling on any traditions. We are, however, planning to make some Christmas sugar cookies next week. We'll give some to friends/neighbors and eat the rest. :) Do you have any fun ideas for a young-ish married couple to do during the Christmas season? Keep in mind that we are excessively poor, so things that cost little or no money would be best. Thanks!

Crafts and Craziness

As I expected, the first week of December has already been busy. First, though, I wanted to let you know that my husband is doing great. He's healing nicely and his doctor said an endoscopy is not necessary at this point. Back to the busyness. I've decided to make many of the gifts we're giving to family members (no spoilers) and it's been a lot of fun, but has required a majority of my time. I haven't been needed at work, which has been great, though that will likely change next week. This means I've neglected my writing. Again. I suppose I need to try and organize my time a little better, but it's hard when I'm trying to make sure gifts are done in time for Christmas. I also have a goal to add to my inventory of scenes for my webcomic, but haven't had much time for that either. Sigh. At least my Christmas tree is up.

Don't forget to enter my giveaway!
