I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family friends. Now that we’ve stuffed ourselves fuller than the turkey, and paused to reflect on all that we have to be thankful for, it’s time to deck the halls and light the Christmas lights.
Way back in the beginning of November 5 inches of snow fell at our house. I wanted to put up Christmas decorations then, but I restrained myself. I just can’t decorate for Christmas until after Thanksgiving. It was 60 degrees this weekend. That didn’t really put me in the Christmas spirit, but there’s a chill in the air, and snow in the forecast for this week. So I’ll start getting the decorations up.
I have not started Christmas shopping, but I will soon. First I have to get David to remember what he wants for Christmas.
“What do you want for Christmas David?”
“I don’t remember.”
“What do you mean you don’t remember?”
“I already told Santa. Every time I think of something I just say it out loud so he knows.”
“But you need to tell me so we can write him a letter. You have to send a letter. That’s how it works.”
“But I don’t remember. It’s OK. He knows.”
This is the first year Wade is old enough to ask for something. His list is pretty simple. Wade wants a Buzz Lightyear, a Thomas Train and a box. Yes, an empty box. We had a big box that our new toilet came in. The boys played in and with it until it fell apart. Now Wade wants a new one. Hey, I can handle a big box. I’ll be Christmas shopping at U-Haul this year.
Well, I have a free Christmas printable for you today. The Thanksgiving printable was a huge hit with you all, so I thought I’d continue along with the same theme. This time I sized it to fit on an 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper folded in half. You can print this, and use it as a Christmas card if you like. To download a high resolution PDF just click the image above.
