Cole and Santa

I haven't posted on my Christmas blog in 5 weeks. I try to post at least once a month on here. Can you believe that we are half way through the year! Six more months 'til Christmas! I wanted to share this picture of Cole with Santa when he was around 3 years old. He was not a happy camper! Look at that face! The only way that I could get him to sit in Santa's lap was to let him hold my pen. As soon as the picture was taken, he wanted out of his lap! Cole will be 18 years old next month.

Has anyone done any Christmas shopping yet? I always try to start right after Christmas! Last year I was finished by September. It felt so good too! Because I work in retail, I have to work extra long hours during the holidays. When I get off everyday, I'm usually too tired to do much of anything. Last year it really helped me to have it all done early. I was able to enjoy the holidays more. I've gotten a good bit done so far. Today is my day off and my son Garrett and I are spending the whole day together. I'm taking him to the movies and out to eat. We really want to see the movie "UP". I hope that it is playing. Then after that, we are going to a couple of thrift shops. He loves to do that. He usually finds something that he just HAS to have! LOL He is a lot like his mama.
