Yeah, I got the tree up and a few decorations.
Maybe it's because I didn't put out half of my Christmas "stuff" this year because of the pup.
I'm really missing my nativity scene. I don't dare put it out.
It's all hand made by a woman from my church back in Kalamazoo who is a weaver.
The worst part is I'm not even sure where it is. I keep it in a separate box with cedar so it doesn't get eaten by moths.
I have a vague memory of showing to the mover guy who was packing my basement up and labeling it as an item to take "extra special care of". Um, yeah....
Or maybe it's because I haven't even started my Christmas shopping yet. I have four kids who claim to have no idea what they want for Christmas.
That is disturbing on many levels.
Yes, it would be nice to believe that they are just a bunch of sweet, selfless teens who are seeing beyond all the hype of the holiday season and are realizing the "true meaning" of Christmas. They don't need the stuff...
But that's not what I'm thinking.
I'm guessing that as parents maybe we give them too much year round so they don't "need" or "want" anything.
That or they are too lazy to figure it out.
They have grandparents who like to get their shopping done before all the last minute madness starts. A list would be nice for them too.
I'm almost afraid to ask if this is this a normal teen thing? And I'm refusing to just give them money for Christmas. But the longer this goes on the more of a Scrooge I become.
Here's all that puppy wants for Christmas
