Tis the Season

It may LOOK like autumn out there. The leaves are falling from the trees in a way that reminds me of falling snow. The grass has returned to it's green color and is in desperate need of mowing (can I tell you how much I have enjoyed *not* mowing it since late July when it stopped growing?). Houses around me have been made festive with Halloween decorations. However, my mind has already left October and is residing in December as thoughts of Christmas fills my head. Wondering what it will look like this year. How I will swing fulfilling Christmas wishes of my two amazing children. I have started dreaming and scheming of what I can do to pull a Christmas miracle out of my hat. Kaylen locked in her Santa wish months ago but Kelton is still going back and forth. It's a hard place to be - encouraging him to dream while guiding him to ideas that won't break the bank. I want them both to think outside the box.....maybe think about unusual christmas gifts though I don't really have a clear vision of what that would look like.

It should be interesting to see what they can come up with....but I need to get them working on it because I read on someones FB post yesterday that it's a mere 10 weeks away and if miracles are going to happen, I need as much time as possible.

On another note: They leave for Disneyland bright and early Saturday morning. They will be gone almost a full week. It will the longest time span I have ever been away from them. So weird but I know they are going to have a great time and make memories that will last them a lifetime. Sad for me but over the top happy for them!

Casey...Try Hearthsong for some unusual and usually affordable finds. They have some awesome craft kits for boys and girls and I can almost always find a coupon for them. They also have stuff that is not found in stores sot it keep some of the magic of Christmas alive.
