Yes, I know it’s early but I have started my Christmas shopping. Everywhere I went I heard holiday music in the stores this weekend. While some believe we need to celebrate one holiday at a time I am all for getting a head start. Even Santa is at the mall already!
However, this year as my kids get older they are more about celebrating experiences. Of course gifts are nice too they say, but my older daughter requested a trip to Florida instead of presents! During the busy time of year we do have our favorite things to do – a trip to NYC, Festival of Trees (in my town I grew up in) and I would like to add a few things on my to do list for the kids. They would like to go back to Great Wolf Lodge and I would like to go back to a fun hotel we stayed at a year ago Cranwell Resort I would also like to venture to New Hampshire as well. Some things like spending time with family on a fun adventure cannot be wrapped up in a gift box or bag but the memories will last and that is on my list of holiday gifts to give this year.
