And when it comes to gift ideas, Jacob is almost impossible to buy for. When we ask him what he wants for Christmas, he replies "I want what's in the presents that Santa brings me." It seems funny, but it makes gift buying a little more difficult And why is it that everyone wants us to pick up something for them to give Jacob. It's hard enough to find 1 or 2 things to give him, let alone 3 or 4 other things for family members to give.
We're honestly just happy that this Christmas season doesn't have the same sadness attached to it like the past 2. I think being in the new house is the fresh start that we all needed. But Jacob often tells us how he misses our old house, but he does love this one. And he loves that he has a wood door on his room.
There's still a lot of unpacking to do here too. I know it should be done already, but we're waiting for our entertainment unit to be delivered, hopefully before Christmas day. And we still need a few other storage solutions for around the house too. It's just hard to find the time when I work every single day.
But the best thing for us is our new Christmas tree. In our old house we only had a little 3 foot tree, which was fine. But now we have a 7 foot tree that's already pre lit. If only I could find our camera lol, then I would take a picture of it to share. Oh well. Maybe this weekend we'll be able to track it down and then I'll get an actual picture of it.
Until then, I hope everyone is calm this holiday shopping season. And I hope that everyone gets their shopping done before the 24th comes. But it's looking more and more like that's when we'll be going to the mall. And it's a good thing I'm already bald, or I'd definitely be pulling my hair out.
