Making Progress

So far in Christmas prep:

  • The Advent Calendar is mostly set up. I have enough small gifts, Christmas-themed books from the library, and “tickets” to get through the entire Advent season. I had planned to make a schedule to evenly space out the gifts and special events, but I ran out of time. That’s OK. Better to be flexible.
  • The Christmas cards arrived. They turned out nicely.
  • I ordered ornaments for me, my kids, and my hubby, plus a personalized ornament for my niece.
  • I’ve made good progress on my annual photo album. Most of the photos are in, and most of the layouts look good. I’ll probably be able to finish it in time.
  • I ordered new comforters and blankets for my parents to use while they’re here Christmas Eve, and I bought mints so I can put one on each of their pillows (as a joke). So, maybe this year there will be no crazy, last-minute scrounging for blankets on Christmas Eve as I’m trying to get everything else ready, too.
  • I ordered a birthday gift for my niece, whose party is coming up soon. Because her birthday is so close to Christmas, I consider her birthday present to be part of my Christmas prep (but I also buy her a separate Christmas present, because I’m not one of those people).

Still left to do:

  • Keep the Advent Calendar going; make time for all the activities it entails.
  • Finish the photo album.
  • Arrange for Charley the Elf’s arrival.
  • Get a Christmas tree and decorate it.
  • Decorate the house.
  • Clean the house.
  • Christmas shopping.
  • Tip our newspaper delivery person.
  • Gifts for the kids’ bus drivers/teachers.
  • Wish lists (to help our family members who don’t know what to get us)
  • Plan a Christmas Day menu and shop for it.
