 I know that it's a bit premature, but I started thinking about my Christmas shopping and started on a list.  I usually start shopping in October.  This year will be easier because I am mostly getting bigger items for my immediate family.  For my hubby, I plan to get him a new 32" flatscreen tv for his workshop.  My daughter wants a nice leather jacket and I always get her a special Lenox ornament.  And my son, not sure yet.  I will have to get ideas from him.  Most likely nice work clothes and a good bottle of cologne.  I was also thinking of an EZ pass for when he drives on the turnpike to visit with his girlfriend who is away at college.  Have any of you started thinking of Christmas yet or am I the only crazy one?   haha

 I concur!!!  :)  It is one holiday that I have never gotten sick of.  Despite my kids being older (21 & 23), I still enjoy decorating, going out for a fresh tree at the tree farm, writing out Christmas cards, and shopping of course.........love all of these activities!!  The only thing that I don't do for the holidays is BAKE.  lol  But I do enjoy eating other friend's & family's homemade cookies.  ;-)

Not really, but the company I rep for is starting the holiday push. I'm actually going to be getting a table at a local flea market and sell small stocking stuffer type gifts.

 Thanks!!  Figuring the gifts out is half the battle!!!  Shopping for something specific is easy........making the decision of what to get can be much harder.
