Happy 11-1-11 everyone!!! Yes, it's November already. Can you believe it? I can't. This year has gone by so fast that it was almost a blur. Thank goodness for cameras, scrapbooks and journals to keep track of the memories.
Anyways, over here we're getting ready for Thanksgiving, birthdays and Christmas! It's almost time for all of them. I'm getting ready to be in full on planning mode. I'm in the thick of making my grocery list for Thanksgiving dinner. Last year I had to hunt down ham bits and collard greens like a mad woman. This year I'm buying both early. I can cut up my greens and stick them in the freezer until I'm ready to start cooking.
And today, I'm going to be designing invitations for Moo's 3rd birthday party. She's having two parties. I know lucky her. Thankfully, I can use the same invite and only have to change the date. The second birthday party will be a joint party with me. Yep, we're both December babies.
As if I'm not already going to have my plate full, I have to finish my Christmas shopping. One year we did stuffed stockings in addition to one main gift for each person. My family has been requesting that we do it again for years and this year I'm bringing it back. So, I've been keeping my eyes posted for some good items to stuff in them.
It's going to be hard to sneak stuff for Moo's stocking since she always accompanying me on shopping trips for our alone Mommy-Daughter time. I might have to sneak out during a nap one day because I've spotted some things I want to pick up. And speaking of gifts don't forget about the My Memories Suite Giveaway going on.
So, as you can see I'm going to be a very busy mommy this month and well into next month. I'm not complaining though because holidays are truly magical for our family. It's the time when we are our happiest and all together cutting the fool.
Have you started any holiday yet?
