The holidays are upon us. Thanksgiving has come and gone and Christmas is right around the corner. Lil Man is beyond excited! He is old enough this year to really get into the festivities. And as I started putting out the decorations he wanted everything in his room. ha
With our family being in the South, and us living in PA, our holiday traditions each year are sort of evolving into our own.
Our first year that Hubby and I celebrated our first Christmas, it was just the two of us. Money was tight, but I still wanted a tree. And although gifts were not important, I at least wanted us to be able to have something under the tree and to open on Christmas day. Our solution? We each took $5 and bought five $1 gifts. Oh yes, I'm for real. It was so much fun. We shopped at the same time - not letting the other person see what we were buying. And part of the deal was that it had to include wrapping. So, we decided to use newspaper to wrap our gifts. I used the comics section.
