    ....the older I get the less I do at Christmas, I'm now thinking about cutting way back on all
    the birthday buying too.

    What little family I have left has an agreement of "no Christmas presents." That way, nobody spends money they don't have and nobody gets stuff they don't want or need.

    I don't really do much Christmas shopping anymore, just get the 2 oldest grandsons a gift card and the little ones usually get legos that I order on Amazon.

    BUT! I love Christmas and I'm already counting the days. Last year I spent Christmas in Illinois at my son's. This year it will be at my daughter's most likely...it's all about family for me and the food and the decorations. I'm still a child at heart when it comes to holidays.

    I love Christmas, too and I'm always striving for that elusive "perfect" Christmas.

    Yes, so am I. It's probably in my Christmas Past, it also includes snow which won't happen in Fresno, it didn't even happen in Illinois when I went there. My son is across from St. Louis and they don't get as much snow as
    Chicago does. They had a mild winter while I was there.

    I think in my mind a Victorian Style Christmas is what I want....with snow of course.

    Thanks for reminding me. I must get started. I just have to know who is going to be in town then, though, and who is not.

    ​Since it is just the two of us, we do not really exchange for Christmas in the traditional sense. We may buy something nice for ourselves, or the house and call it "for Christmas". Our anniversary is December 7th, so most years, sometime between the two dates we go out for a nice dinner out and call it good.
    I am trying to find myself. Have you seen me anywhere?
