It has been many years since I've been convinced that we're going to have a white Christmas but I think it's a given for this year. Yeah! I love a white Christmas!!
The weeks before Christmas are also filled with shopping for most of us I'm sure. I love the excitement of being in a busy mall...as long as I can find what I'm looking for. Friday night a couple of weeks ago my friend Deb and I headed out for supper and then a night of shopping. This picture may look like my shopping was very successful but in reality it's just a fun pic of niave me! :o) Would you believe I didn't buy a gift that night? What happened was that she bought one gift and when we got to the cash of the next store I offered to hold her first bag. Guess I forgot to give it back. It quickly became a game to her (and I was totally oblivious!) that each time we got to the cash of the next store she'd innocently ask if I could hold a bag for her while she got her wallet out. Well...it took me 6 stores to catch on that I was carrying every single thing she'd purchased and she was walking around empty handed! We howled when I finally caught on to her game! LOL! So glad she didn't feel golf clubs or a new microwave were on her gift list this year! I might have caught on a little earlier if they had been....or not!!
The following morning I was up bright and early and headed out to Toy's R Us at 7am. On the way I picked up a yummy Tim Horton's Candy Cane Hot Chocolate. Ahhh...the perfect combination for a wonderful time of buying gifts for my niece and nephews. Hot chocolate and a toy store!
Finally, this pic just makes me smile. This past Saturday my friend Sharon and I spent a wonderful day of shopping together. She and I have taken a day to Christmas shop together for the last number of years and I always love that day together! We were a little later this year but it was such a wonderful day together and I'm glad we were able to find the time. When we went back to her place for supper she told me where her gifts were hidden this year and I just had to take a peek for myself. Yup! The gifts are all tucked safely away in the bathtub of the spare bathroom! LOL!! Creative gift storage 101. Now, lets just hope someone doesn't decide to take a shower with out looking behind the curtain first! Love you Sharon! I'm so glad we had Saturday to spend together and shop for the ones we love.
