I don't know how you feel, but

I feel it's just too early for Christmas. Spike is ready, or, at least, he thinks he is. He's already been looking for Santa, and, more importantly to him, reindeer tracks! I guess it's time to start the shopping. I like Oprah's idea, though, rather than shop, make Christmas more meaningful. I like that idea. We'll see what I can come up with to capture the real meaning of Christmas. Any ideas? I love suggestions! What do you do to make Christmas more meaningful to you and your family?

Aw, Spike, the antler look is good on you!

I think you're right about the making Christmas more meaningful, Mallory. I'm especially worried that my two spoiled munchkins are going to see Christmas more and more as an explosion of free toys. One thing I'm thinking about doing is letting others buy the fun stuff like toys and making our gifts to the kids more along the line of guitar lessons (maybe for Katie?) or karate or similar lessons (for James to give the one who's clumsy like me a boost of physical confidence). We'll see how that goes. Anyway, I'm not ready for Christmas, yet, either, but Spike does make a great poster boy for getting into the holiday mood!

Ang, it looks like you are on your way to having a more meaningful Christmas. I love the idea of lessons for the children. That is an awesome gift! These lessons will give your beautiful children something to take and use beyond Christmas, but in their lives as they grow. I like that idea a lot!
