As for gifts, everyone's getting something homemade. I've been crocheting my grandparents a lapghan for a week or two now. Eighteen squares done, thirty to go. All the other females are getting jewelry, handmade by moi. The boys...well, I'm not sure what the boys will get. I'll work on that.
Ah, even as I'm sitting here waiting for the plumber I'm getting into the Christmas spirit. Three cheers for the holiday season.
