I can't hold it in any longer!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm about to bust, because I've been holding some stuff in. I just can't hold it in any longer, because I am SO EXCITED! Once you're done reading this you'll probably be like, "What the heck, Rach? This stuff is NOT important at all!" My answer to that is--right now, they're important to me!

#1. I am completely done with my Christmas shopping for family, except for Josh and Zeke (we may get him one more gift, but maybe not). This is an incredible feat, because usually we are scrambling for gifts at the last minute. Not so this year! I've had the time to be creative AND find great deals.
#2. A special thanks goes out to Jordan, who tipped me off to a great website with ideas for affordable and creative Christmas gifts. And SO, I ended up making these awesome plates for all 4 of my sister's kids:
I drew a picture on each of their plates of something they are interested in. It was tough for Dustin and Austin because I don't know them that well yet, but Bethany gave me great ideas for them, so I hope I got it right! I had one plate leftover, so I was able to make a birthday gift for one of Zeke's little friends from Story Time at the Library. Her birthday party was Saturday and it felt great to be able to give a thoughtful gift. If you are reading this and you are related to me, don't show the kids this picture! I am always super excited to give gifts, but this year because I'm done so early, the anticipation is killing me! It's all I can do to hold back from giving everyone their presents right now!

So there you go... I feel a little bit better now that I was able to get that off my chest and out into the open. :) But shhhhhhh...don't tell the kids!
