For now, number 22 on the birthday list is complete: Ban (almost) all Christmas spending. I really did not BUY anyone (except Avery) a single Christmas gift this year. I did send out some Alaska Bird calendars as gifts to some people, but those were free :) I didnt even send Christmas cards. I know that some of you might be thinking "Ba humbug", but really it is about time I banned Christmas spending. It was getting out of hand. I would much rather go somewhere (Paris) and do something (ok, lots of things) and enjoy the company of the people I love (gma), than spend a bunch of money on stuff. So, this year instead of spending a bunch of money on Christmas stuff, I took my grandmother to Paris instead. Post to follow soon, because that was number 1 on the list.
Merry (belated) Christmas everyone. I hope you got to spend yours with the people that you love rather than the stuff that you got. Joyeux Noel!
