    working in retail i find it kinda annoying that the stores are pushing so early without thinking about thanksgiving.

    so all i gotta say is "SAVEEE MEEEEEE"

    I'm right there with you....till I found myself humming Christmas music in MK today. The decorations, the music, all the pretty Christmas things in the shops; I was out-numbered.

    We went to MK last weekend and they were already playing Christmas songs on the radio on our way there. :/

    As for me, I'm going to get through Thanksgiving before I even start thinking that much about Christmas.
    Upcoming Trips to WDW:

    Dec 6-10: Disney Wonder
    Dec 10-19: Port Orleans French Quarter

    Neat gift ideas, HMMM, yes my standard, Massage Certificates, $25 for a half hour $50 for an hour, good for almost everyone on the list.

    Family night basket: Soup mix with directions, popcorn, movie and a ready made dessert.

    Morning basket: hot beverage mugs for each, cocoa mix, breakfast bars, coffee mixes and smoothies powder.

    Our family uses this time of year to celebrate The Christ, so as part of that we make donations of soup, peanut butter and jelly to our local Brown Bags for Seniors program. This provides them with up to two weeks at a time of soup, bread, and sandwich fixings. A lot of local grocers also donate fresh produce, so they have that as well, it is something we do year long, but more so in the cold witner months when they cannot garden.

    Soap Box: Many, many seniors across the country go to bed hungry. Most communities run a program just for seniors. If you can and want to.......



    SIL gift: anything with a yard sale tag works. JK, LOL

    The decorations around WDW are just starting to build. I don't think they are at their best till after dark, and I happened to be at the park during the daylight hours. There's a countdown to Christmas display outside the package pick-up building in MK. I'll post the picture, but I do apologize for it's quality. I should have taken a little more time to frame the shot.



    The shops look fantastic and have really gotten me into the Christmas mode way before I had intended.

    The Santa display at DTD is really great. Sorry I can't share the picture that my DD had taken with Santa and her puppy last Saturday evening (I don't own the photo), but we think he was the first puppy for the season photographed. I'm so looking forward to seeing the castle lit-up and the dancing lights at DHS.

    I got in the mood very early this year. Now all presents are bought and most of them wrapped. I am just waiting for the Christmas trees to be put up at inlaws and my mom's house so we can bring over the gifts! I think we will put up our tree as soon as we clean the living room carpets.

    I love going to the mall, seeing all the decor, watching the bustle. We neer taught Santa Clause, so we don't have that to deal with, but seeing the activity is fun and especailly on Christmas Eve, when all the guys are in a panic shopping mode. Hot cocoa, paniced fellows, good fun.
