    I give my hockey games a higher priority than shopping. :)

    Are the pecans lying on the ground under your pecan tree? (That's where my mind went.) :)

    My mother sent us some pecans from her tree earlier this week. They are so fresh and sweet. (Still in the shell).

    @CB....yum.

    I did online shopping. Just picked a site and bought too much. waiting for the packages to arrive. I’ve got mystic crystals and a pocket watch and something else. And a wallet full of two dollar bills. Just waiting for the cards to arrive. One picturing the world on a string and the others whoes message says in short, feed a man, a stranger. Leave me your address and you’ll get a card....

    Are the mystic crystals for you or someone else? :)

    They’re for the man who doesn’t need a thing. He’s like a crow, enjoys shiney stuff. I got them from a friend who sells them on eBay. They each come with an handwritten note explaining the type and properties.....

    Cute idea.

    We are almost done, not so many to buy for now. As the family kids grow up we stop buying for them, they have more money than we do, and there is not much they would want, which we would choose .It's a shame really, but that's life.

    My "Christmas list" has shrunk too. The people that I used to buy for have more "stuff" (and money) than I've ever had or WILL ever have. That's okay....less running around for me. lol

    Enthusiasm in the neighborhood is fun!

    Our Christmas shopping is complete. 


    We have a Charlie Brown Christmas tree that isn't up yet.  I may buy some Christmas lights and window frost to decorate our living room window and the front door.

    Oh yes, I remember now. Cute. :)

    never done, buy things when they remind me of somebody and give it to them maybe that day or maybe Christmas, particularly in my family.  My sister's been buying gifts and handing them to everybody all month.  Plus she said she does not have time this year to wrap gifts.  She works in her home doing two jobs.  She has a lot of customers and her house is always busy.   Happy Holidays!!!  It's hard for me to wait til Christmas.  I never know what's coming the next day.

    Merry Christmas!!! :)

    The gift I enjoy giving the most is the photo ornament, one for each grandchild. I found bright red capital letters (about 3") last year and got one for each. I hung the letters on my tree and the ornament that had that child's picture nearby. They were all so excited to see their letters and even more happy to find their ornament, which they took home for their own tree. I buy the frames for next year when "everything" is on sale after Christmas. The pictures are from soccer games, trips to the fish hatchery, bowling, etc...times the kids spent with me.  I have 4 of 7 completed.

    Wow, you are such a creative person! Great idea for your grandkids and a gift that they will no doubt keep forever!

    Aw, thank you. I did this for my sons for about 10 years, with snowflake ornaments, then got overwhelmed. Still have some snowflake ornaments to finish for their "childhood" years, if I can find good pix....such a mess.

    Sorting through stuff that has accumulated over the years is always overwhelming. I start and stop those projects....can't seem to keep at it. :(

    I get it done, then start again, with renewed determination to lighten the load. Fristrating.
