Ready or Not . . . . .

Hang on to your hats folks! Christmas is just around the corner. I came across this hat in the hall closet when I was pulling out the tablecloth for Thanksgiving. It's been patiently waiting for me to get through the Holiday weekend and bring it out for Christmas. I hate to jump right into Christmas the day after Thanksgiving, although I've been known to do it, so I waited until Sunday night to pull the hat out.

One year, a long time ago, I actually managed to purchase and wrap all my gifts by Thanksgiving. Oh, and I had my Christmas cards done that weekend as well. Once. In my life. It could happen again. But not likely any time soon. Yes, it was well before I had children.

I do try to start in October - sometimes I'll see something that I know one of the kids will want. Sometimes I see an adorable ornament or some decorative item. Anyway, I'm not feeling especially ready this year so I thought this hat might give me the kick-start I need! My bff (best frog friend) offered to pose so that I wouldn't have to do a self portrait. Downright nice of him, don't you think?
