First thing's first my November Progress
1- Have a date
night with Michael.- We don't go out to dinner just the two of us very
often so I'm hoping that we can venture out for an early dinner the day
before Thanksgiving. -Done and Done!!! We went to the gun range and then out to dinner at Olive Garden then home for ice cream and a movie perfection!
2- Bake Pies- I
love baking and I love making pies. This one is kind of a give in
because I'm in charge of dessert for Thanksgiving but I'm still working
on what ones to make- I made a chocolate and lemon meringue pie!!!
3- Get Grayson's picture taken for our Christmas card. I always take this myself. I plan on getting this done this weekend- Got this done and love it! I will be doing a whole post on our cards since most people have already received them!!!
4- Start T-25. I'm hoping to start this program this weekend and keep it going 5 days a week all month. -Fail just plain fail
5-Send out my
Christmas Cards- I like them to go in the mail the day after
Thanksgiving that way people have all month to enjoy them!-They went into the mail box the Tuesday before Thanksgiving so that most people had them the day after!
6- Start and
Finish Christmas shopping! I want it done early this year so that I can
just enjoy my family during the holiday times-Done except for gift cards which will be done this week!
7- Start a new
family tradition for Thanksgiving.- We have lots of tradition most are
from my childhood so I would like to start one for out little family-We did this we are decorating for Christmas on Thanksgiving morning and to be honest I love it. We don't host Thanksgiving so it's nice to get it done and come home stuffed with Turkey to a cozy Christmas house
Now onto December
1- Wrap all my presents......I would like this done within the next week. My plan is to wrap as they come in.
2-Get G's picture taken with Santa! I'm not sure if we will venture to the mall or just take one with the Santa at the work party but I'm thinking there will be tears
3- Make Christmas cookies
4- Buy Christmas Ornaments for 2014
5- Move the Elf on the Shelf every night
6-Watch Christmas movies!
It's the Happiest season of all!
