*Happy December!*

I think it's just about time for me to start to panic!!  It's December 1st and I have a handful of gifts purchased.  I have not even started the kids.  I have no idea what to buy for them!!  We've decided to only do stockings this year, but I find that my boyz are difficult to buy little things for...  A girl would be easy....  lip gloss, makeup, earrings, stuffed animals... so many little things.

But I have no idea what to do for the boyz.

I need to get busy!!  But I think it will wait until next week... too many other things to do this week!  And I'm not dumb enough to do Christmas shopping at the mall on a weekend in December LOL!

Tonight I'm at a band concert at Alex's school.... wishing that they played Christmas songs.  So sad that they spend their year learning songs for competition instead of "wasting" a few weeks learning a few Christmas songs.  I love Christmas music.

Oh well... they still play beautifully and it's still good to listen to!

Anyway.... another Christmas card to share with you tonight...

What about gift cards for in their stocking? HMV or something?

After thinking about my previous post suggesting HMV gift cards I realized I have dated myself! I suppose for kids these days they would prefer Itunes gift cards lol!

Hubby and I are both off today...a shopping we will go...and hopefully mostly finish the girls!! I love the card! I might use this one...I still need like another 20-25 cards! Yup...some people might not be getting cards this year! And we don't have pics of the girls this year to hand out either...I am sure I will hear about that too!!

Love the layout of your card! Love the embossing, I am an embossing fanatic. My husband did most of the Christmas shopping, Bless HIM! Happy December to you too.
