countdown to Christmas
Christmas is in less than six months away! The countdown to Christmas begins in July. It’s hard to believe we will be knee deep in garland and tinsel in a few months. One of my favorite Christmas episodes is from the hit show Modern Family. It’s the episode where Gloria orders a crate of baby Jesus, but her Columbian accent is interpreted as an order for a crate of baby cheeses.” With the countdown to Christmas in the works here’s a flashback to when our Christmas tree took a tumble at four in the morning. Christmas will be here before you know it! Are you planning? When do you start shopping for holiday gifts? I keep a list in my phone of items my kids and husband mention in passing. I am listening. I type ideas in my phone or I may confuse cheeses with Jesus too! Last Christmas I ordered LL boots for the family. All but one pair were backordered until March. I cancelled all but my order. And, with the snowstorms in Colorado in April I used my boots more in April than I would have if I had received them at Christmas. So enjoy the month of July and let the countdown to Christmas begin!
