Fall, my favorite time of year. The weather is cooler, there is no more Daylight Savings Time, and Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner.
I love getting ready for Christmas! I do almost of all of my gift shopping online, so I get packages delivered almost every day this time of year.
I always put my Christmas tree up on the day after Thanksgiving. I have a very pretty, pre-lit Christmas tree, that looks like a real tree. My daughter and grandkids come over to help decorate it.
I always have the Christmas gifts wrapped and ready, so that when the tree is finished, the kids can put the gifts under the tree. After that, the kids will put their new Christmas pajamas on and we’ll take a few Christmas pictures. I’ve already purchased their new pajamas for this year and they are adorable! We will probably watch a Christmas movie or two, also.
Closer to Christmas, my daughter, my grandkids, and I will bake Christmas cookies and make Oreo truffles. The kids love decorating the cookies! Last year we made gingerbread houses, and that was a lot of fun, too!
As we work on different projects for Christmas, I will post some pictures of the results.
I just love this time of year! It’s a special time of year enjoying family traditions. Spending time with family is the best thing ever!
