Happy 50th Birthday Dad and the Countdown to Christmas

*my grandfather (left) and my dad (right) walking me down the aisle*

So today is my Dad's 50th birthday! Of course I had to call and hassle him about it first thing this morning :-) We love to play jokes on each other and give each other the craziest cards for holidays & birthdays. I'm still trying to figure out what I'm going to do with his card this year.....any thoughts? It really needs to be special! I have his gag gift already. It involves Senior Bingo at the retirement community close to his home! I can't wait until he opens it. I just have to make sure I've secured my Christmas gift first :-)

So, are you all ready for the holiday? I am! I completed my shopping list weeks ago and last week I picked up all of my gift cards and a few extra gifts for those little (and big) people that I may have forgotten. I always pick up a few body creams and shower gels from Bath & Body Works and a few $5 kids toys just in case I overlooked someone. If I have any leftover I just save them for upcoming kids birthday parties or baby/bridal showers.

I don't have anything crafty to share this morning. I just wanted to post something since it's been so long. I'll be back later today to share what I've been working on along with the list of goodies I'll be including in my Christmas tins this year.

Thanks for stopping by :-)
