Well well well, Christmas is upon us in a few days and I have accomplished a lot, and still have a lot to do. I did some wrapping over the weekend as well as finished most of the kids presents up. Its getting more and more difficult to purchase for my son who is 14. All he wants is X box games and they are 59.99 a pop, I have one purchased and still have to get the 2nd game. I have gotten him clothing as the remainder of his gifts which is fine with him, as he wanted Sneakers and a nice coat which I have purchased both, so he should be done minus the game. Madison on the other hand I have most of her gifts purchased as well but I still need to get one or two more, go equal up moneywise with what I bought Nick. Then to finish the rest of the presents this Friday will be the big task, along with planning a Christmas Eve menu, of clams, shrimp and either homemade crab cakes from Crab meat that is on sale this week, or do lil filets. Then the money will be done being spent. Thank goodness.
I was able to get a few lil crocks at Goodwill this weekend, which I will be filling with my flavored maple honey butter and also got lil bread tins to make my applesauce bread tonight. Ugh..now if I could only have time to breath. But that will be at 4:30 on Wednesday where I will start my vacation till Tuesday. So that I am very thankful, just need to keep stretching the money. So far the bills are still on track, now extra money I get for Christmas will be put in the savings because our Kitchen cabinets are the next big expenditure!
