I do not want a repeat of last year. Last year, for various reasons, Christmas was a mess. Shopping was not nearly done in time, and the things that I did have purchased made the wrapping for four children while still working impossible. Literally. My generous Aunt wrapped over half of my gifts for me!
Last year couldn't be helped- my husband and I are foster parents, and we had some additions to our family right before Christmas, but I will do everything in my power to make this Christmas much more smooth! Plus, in keeping with my personal goals, I would also like to make this Christmas a bit more "green" as well. So far I have purchased some second hand gifts and recycled some of Ana's paintings as wrapping paper. I also have the Christmas gift wish lists for three out of five. (The other two are too small to write.)
Have you given any thought to Christmas? Have you made any preparations? Or are you thinking that I'm just plain crazy?!
