Oh yes, Halloween is over, stores are displaying numerous Christmas trees and I've given Kyle and Caitlyn their marching orders for their annual Christmas List.  Last year, Kyle's list came in 2 days before Christmas and I had to tell him: Too Late. Christmas shopping was over.  His gifts were wrapped and waiting for a ride to his tree. 

Whatever happened to Thanksgiving?

I don't even put up a tree any more.  My sole concession to Christmas is setting out the ceramic Mr. and Mrs. Claus my Mom made years ago.  I don't hear sleigh bells and while I may catch myself humming a Christmas Carol or two, I certainly don't play Christmas music.  Oh, Bah Humbug.

There are, however, gifts to be given and budgets to be made and Christmas treats to be pondered.  We could all use a little help in the budget area.  I plan to try to win as many of my Christmas gifts as possible.  A good start might be Lori Anderson's nice little book giveaway.  I know some of my crafty friends might enjoy one of these books.  Why don't you enter too?

This was refused, and went mad, but I knew I could not help you and me to accept it felt weird. One year, I had an uncle who gave me a very expensive birthday present, so when Christmas came around me said that it becomes very, very nice.
