Day 655: It's Beginning To Look

Well, it's not really looking like Christmas yet, but I'm feeling so much more ready for it today.  We bought almost all of Christmas presents this morning.  And I had a coupon for nearly all of them.  It was awesome.  Huge Joyful Moment in making great progress in being ready (and avoiding department stores as we get closer to those crazy shopping days).

Actually, I think the greatest Joyful Moment was finding Pillow Pets on sale at Kohl's and having a $10 off coupon.  Sweet P has been asking for a Pillow Pet ever since her cousin got one last year.  Little M just always wants whatever she has.  I found a dinosaur pillow pet for him and a zebra one for her (she's recently become rather interested in zebras).  I am SO excited.  They're supposed to be for their birthdays because we've already got them enough for Christmas, but it's going to be hard for me to wait that long!

Wishing you all Joyful Moments in finding perfect gifts for your loved ones!

Hey, Cogratulations! It's so nice to have successful shopping trips, especially when it's shopping for someone else.

2 JM's - Believe it or not, the first was shopping in Home Depot with my HH. We made some progress in some of our remodeling project decisions and had fun talking about it. The second was having Randy & Carolyn over for dinner - first time since we moved here - I'm embarrassed about that... It was a lot of fun to yak and yak and yak.
