|I’m already thinking about Christmas decorations. I bet this pretty cinnamon stick wreath makes the whole house smell wonderful! Found here.|
Even though my kids only had 3 days of school, this week has been really exhausting. Maybe it’s BECAUSE my kids only had 3 days of school. 🙂
I am definitely feeling the holiday vibe over here already! We’ll be packing away the boxes of Halloween decorations this weekend and I’m already thinking of Christmas decorating ideas. I’m going to start deep-cleaning and organizing and purging our space over the next few weeks. I always find myself more at peace and less overwhelmed by the fullness of the holidays when I don’t have a backlog of extra stuff to do. And I always purge before Christmas, knowing we need to make space for new things.
I’m really looking forward to this weekend, especially since Matt has Monday off for Veterans’ Day. The kids do not have the day off of school, so we’re planning to get some projects done for Christmas while we have a few child-free hours (although Q only has school for 3 hours, so we’ll have to make the most of the morning!).
We also have big plans for finishing up most of our Christmas shopping this Sunday! We are way ahead of the game this year–this is the earliest I’ve ever had gifts for the kids (almost) done, and we’re chipping away at the list for other family members too. It feels really great to have so much done already!
What are your weekend plans? Whatever they are, have fun. 🙂
