As much as I love this time of year, it is also one of the busiest times!
And no matter how organized I try to be, there is always that last minute rush of trying to add on to gifts etc.
This year, I made my Christmas list months ahead, allotted a budget to each person and sent out all my holiday cards in November. I purchased most of the items on the list on Black Friday and they are all wrapped and ready to go as of today!
The only person on the list that I am still sort of working on is Kitty!
Let me backtrack a bit and tell you about how things work in our household during the Christmas season.
Our gift list is usually pretty small. It mostly includes immediate family and a few friends. So this makes things a bit easier.
As for my husband and I, we usually don’t buy each other any large gifts. We decide on a budget as to what we each will spend on the other person and do small stocking stuffers, gift cards or use that money towards a new experience. I, for one, LOVE gift cards! It is the ideal gift you can get me! I prefer to shop in my own time so this works out perfect!
So in a nutshell, thanks to my slight OCD, I am Christmas ready by the beginning on December. And of course, Kitty loves all the lights and bling that gets put out so she spends most of her time cuddled up under her little tree! Yes, you heard me… HER tree! We gave up trying to have a full sized tree 2 years ago as it didn’t survive her pawing and climbing! So now we decorate a tiny 3 foot tree especially for her:)
Here is Kitty enjoying some of the snow and then followed by a snuggle session under her favourite blanket to stay warm!
We sent out over 60 cards this year to Kitty’s Instagram friends! We have now started to receive many cards as well! The adorable bowtie you see her wearing is from a Canadian company called Fancy Paws 🙂
