One thing I am pretty good about doing way ahead of deadline is my Christmas shopping. I do most of it online and like to have it completely out of the way by the first weekend in December. After that, I can partake in the annual viewing of Christmas Vacation (one of my favorite traditions), practice making gingerbread martinis, and fully enjoy the season. These lace crocheted legwarmers from Grace & Lace, a gift for the munchkin, arrived today. Love!
