Wow, Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is right around the corner. I can't believe 2009 is coming to an end. We are taking time to reflect on everything we have been through and trying to look to a more positive future. Ray and I both have been busy with work. Best Buy as you can image is super busy. Ray is working in the install bay now so I am sure all of the new toys people are buying will need to be all installed the day after Christmas. I see long days in his future! :) Franklin is actually closing for a Winter Break so I will have some time off between Christmas and the new year. I am hoping to get a lot of cleaning an organizing done to ring in the new year on a "clean" note!

We decided this year not to buy any presents. Not a single present! We really need to remember the true meaning of Christmas and it's not about the gifts. We are looking forward to spending quality time with our families. It's has been liberating not having to worry about who wants what and who did I forget?? I also donated all of our wrapping paper, tissue paper and holiday bags to my moms church. I have been really bad about buying items because they are on sale. Well, after a few years of that I had more wrapping paper than I knew what to do with! I was happy to give these items to someone who could really use them.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday season! Love you all! Leslie

What a great idea! I bet that not buying gifts definitely takes a lot of stress off. Good call!
I hope you get all organized! Feeling like everything is clean and organized is the best. When you're done with your place, do you want to hop on over to Utah and do mine too? ;)
Hope you have a wonderful holiday season!
