Christmas is too soon!

It seems like I have been unable to come up for air the past 2 months...I swear it was September 1st yesterday! I share an Event Planner role at my office and this year we had to take on the whole process of event planning because our EA was let go. It has been fun, BUT a lot of work...a lot of thankless work. We had our Thanksgiving luncheon, a Santa's workshop with 70 children (and their parents), & finally a Holiday Party. All of these occurring within 3 weeks of eachother. I am down right T-I-R-E-D. I slept all weekend and still seems like I am lacking sleep. The events were fabulous and I am glad the stress and rush is over...until Springtime.

I HAVEN'T BOUGHT ONE CHRISTMAS GIFT! Well, I fib...I have one...and have 7 more people to buy for by next Tuesday. Oh my goodness...I have no idea when to go, where to go, or what to buy for that matter. My life has been rushed, stressful, overwhelming, & late the past 2 months I haven't even thought of gifts. I have a week to get it all done...looks like the outlet mall at midnight will be my home this weekend.

As for the Holiday Season, I love it! I love how jolly everyone is around me. I love all the parties, the gifts, MY BIRTHDAY, the food, shopping, egg nog with crown, Christmas trees, wreaths, fresh poinsettas, UGG boots...and the list goes on and on. I am thankful that Eric and I have jobs and the ability to provide gifts to our loved ones this year. I am thankful to be able to spend quality time with friends and family throughout the season. And lastly, I am thankful for the Reason for the Season, Jesus Christ.

Wishing everyone a special Holiday Season!

I'm right there with you, girl! I haven't started on my Christmas card OR shopping! I think I am in Christmas denial this year. I'll just skip it and celebrate next year when P is home. ;)
