This is fascinating.
What I find particularly interesting is how old some of my favorite childhood toys actually are. Born in the 70s, some of my favorites came from the 10s, 20s, 30s and 50s.
Last year I plugged in a Christmas tree night light and called the decorating done. But then again we had a one-year-old who was waddling around the house pulling on everything.
I’d have been a fool to put up a tree.
This year she’s two. She knows that messing with mommy’s tree could land her
Not really sure what I was getting myself into, I dragged my husband Steve (@scratic) over to the Dress Barn in the Pinnacle Hills Promenade to do a little shopping. We had a limited amount of time between work and going to the A-M-A-Z-I-N-G new Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art opening. Our family pictures were scheduled for 9:00 a.m. the next morning, which meant that if I didn’t find the perfect outfit there would be no time to find something else for the pictures, and my whole master Christmas card plan would fail. FAIL!
We decided as a family to keep Christmas to a minimum this year. We have been working on paying off our debt for just over a year and are about 1/3 of the way there. In order to keep the momentum going we have committed to making sacrifices until we are debt free, which should be within the next two years if we keep this up.
