Day 7: Christmas Preparation
What to do? What to do? For the most part I have a pretty good handle on Christmas preparations, which is a little odd for me. Since I travel so much for work, I don’t always have a ton of time in December to devote to holiday prep. But thanks to online shopping and Cyber Friday/Monday sales, I am WAY ahead of the curve this year. I shopped online for three days and put a serious dent in our family shopping list. Packages have been arriving daily for the last week or so, and I’ve filled a corner of our “man pit,” which we’ve renamed the Christmas Pit! Before November was even over I designed a couple of different Christmas cards and was able to settle on a final version. And the house was recently trimmed to look festive and bright (minus the Christmas tree, which we’re waiting to put up until a little closer to Christmas so destructor baby – aka Cooper -- doesn’t pull it down or break all the ornaments).
