Good morning.

Only 16 days until Christmas. How did it get here so quickly? Most of my shopping is done, so I’m feeling pretty good. We got the tree and decorated the house this weekend.
I’ll be hosting it here this year. First Christmas in my new house, so I’m excited. There is still lots to do, but staying organized helps reduce any stress.
I’ve already attended a couple Christmas parties and have another this Friday and one the weekend after. My Mom’s birthday is this week and we’ve made plans for her on Friday afternoon and then family is coming on Saturday night for a birthday dinner. It means a loss of a couple days for Christmas prep, but it’s for a good cause.
I was thinking of having the Youths With Cancer group over to celebrate, but I think I’ll wait until New Years. There’s a lot going on right now.

I hope you’re all trying to stay stress free and are having fun with any Christmas parties or events that are springing up.
