I am so ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas! I love this time of the year!! We are going to Disney World the week of Thanksgiving. Planning on putting our tree up before we leave because I don't want to do it when we get back and I just want to put it up early. Everybody will be at our house for Christmas this year so it should be interesting. My mom, stepdad, brother and his girlfriend will be coming from South Carolina. I am actually pretty close to being done with shopping. I am done with DS and just have a few things left for everyone else. I don't think I have ever been this close to being done this early. What are your plans for the holidays?

We are getting married on December 22nd, so i am definitely looking forward to the holidays. I plan on getting a lot of our shopping done on black Friday so we're not having to stress over the Christmas shopping and having a wedding the same week.

I LOVE this time of the year. I don't know my plans yet, though, a bit early for us to decide. I haven't started shopping or anything, I won't for awhile. I kinda work great under pressure

I LOVE this time of year too!! We live pretty far from all of our family right now (his family is in Iowa, mine is in California, we're in Florida) so Thanksgiving is the two of us, but I plan (if I have the energy) to make us a full Thanksgiving dinner Christmas this year is in California, so I'm REALLY excited to go home and spend time with my mom and at least get to experience some of my pregnancy with her. As far as shopping goes, we're DIY-ing Christmas this year, so I'm hoping to start and finish early, but again, that all depends on my energy :-D

Thank you *Kiliki* for the beautiful siggy

Oh shoot, there are holidays this year too? Didn't we just deal with that LAST YEAR??? No, I haven't even thought about the holidays yet. Nor do I want to. Can I fast-forward to January 2?

I loooove the holiday season and have been blasting xmas music since sept! lol. Too bad it was in the triple digits until a couple weeks ago and now it's supposed to be back up in the 90's as of tomorrow! We at least got a week of sort of fall weather.

Haha, I am already been planning and have been since June. Christmas is kind of a big deal to us! We start making plans and shopping MONTHS in advance. DH family lives in Asheville, NC so we are planning to take a trip to visit around christmas! I have started accumulating masses of decorations that I have absolutely no room for and collecting recipes. Can't wait.

I love this time of year but, unfortunately for us, it means lots of traveling. All my family is in Oklahoma so we usually drive there for thanksgiving and Christmas. I haven't started shopping yet but I am getting a list together for what I want to get various family members. I won't start shopping for the kids until after my son's birthday next month.

We are trying to figure out how to avoid family over the holidays so no one says anything. I don't know if I'll be showing my Thanksgiving or not and I don't want to have to deal with anyone's comments.

I have some of our Christmas shopping done, or at least in Lay away. My goal is to be done by Thanksgiving.

I have started shopping for my older two but not the youngest. I went to a craft fair this weekend and I got him something and gave it to himinstead of waiting lol. I think Im going to be clueless on him he has so much already and will only be 19mths at christmas so still young for so many cool toys. DH is impossible to buy for no clue what to do for him this year

I love Thanksgiving, but Christmas is always a little harder due to money and whatnot. I'm really looking forward to telling my family I'm pregnant around that time. It would be easier if my SO and I hadn't broken up last night, but my family is pretty supportive so it should still be fine. Hopefully I won't have to work Thanksgiving.
