Our Christmas is simple - but not nearly as much fun as it used to be
Time to get on with the Christmas shopping! We have it pretty easy compared to the number of gifts some people give. A Harry & David order for my Father-in-Law. A flower order for my Mom. Our grown sons and their sweeties send us wish lists - and this year I managed to create my own Amazon wish list for them. We have things delivered by Santa's helpers, so no wrapping either.
So that just leaves deciding on a budget, picking out what to give and also finding gifts for the two who have birthdays around the holidays. We'll also send out a few cards, find some holiday music to listen to, drive around and admire the holiday lights, go to the neighborhood holiday party, I'll go to my book club party, and the two of us will go out for a special dinner Christmas Eve. Not nearly as much fun as when the kids were little, but it is simple.
Do you make your holidays simple or go all out?
