Hey, everyone! Christmas time is here again. Have you done your Christmas shopping yet? As with my household, we are always excited for Christmas. There are lots of fun holiday activities for kids, a number of Christmas party invites, huge feeling of Christmas cheer, and exciting shopping experiences during this most wonderful time of the year.

K helps decorate the Christmas tree.
We started decorating our home for Christmas the weekend we got home from our Thanksgiving travels. My darling daughter helped me decorate the Christmas tree. It’s so lovely and bright. I am adding white on our tree this time. Also, I put red cardinal birds on our tree. The idea of the cardinal bird as part of this year’s holiday decor came into my mind the moment I received a holiday mug, Christmas gift from my cousin in Oregon (thanks again N), with a cardinal design on it. Then while my family and I were strolling by the lake one fine afternoon during the holidays, I saw a pair of cardinal birds roosting upon a tree at the lake. I felt good inside. It’s just an uplifting thought for me.

Our Christmas tree 2016
We did not buy a new Christmas tree. And for the ornaments, I only bought a few white flowers from Michaels and the cardinal birds from Kohls. The mantel still needs decorating though. I still have to figure out where to put our Christmas stockings.

K: “We have to start writing my Christmas List, Mom.”
This was K told me while I was eating my supper last night. She was watching Peppa Pig on television around 8:00 P.M. last night and a commercial of some children’s toys showed up which reminded her of the ones she wants for Christmas. I like watching some kids’ shows and cartoons but what I dislike is too much commercials about toys and nonsense things.
K, who is turning 5 in the next few weeks, is actually interested more on her Christmas Wishlist than what she wants for her birthday. In fact, she only wanted to go to Kid Mania in Plano. It is a big play area and arcade games for kids. The very first time we were there was on a birthday of one of my girl friend’s daughter two years ago. K wants to go back there. Okay, so I have to call Kid Mania about their party reservation and stuff.
Anyway, now K has a few things listed in her Christmas List. I told her that there is no assurance that she will get all of them because Santa will consider what she wishes for the most.
How about your kid/kids? Have they started writing down their Christmas Wishlists?
