It has been a tradition in our family to go to the mall the weekend before Christmas. You may wonder why that is such a big deal, but when the boys were little I remember how we would drive 1 - 2 hours, one way, to go to a big mall and just walk around the mall and watch the people who were frantically scurring here and there, buying whatever they thought their loved ones would like. I LOVE the hustle and bustle of last-minute shoppers. I don't like to shop last-minute, but I like to watch people. Steve used to wait till the 24th to shop, so I guess it was a big tradition in our family. I hope my boys are breaking that tradition, although you can get some great deals by waiting, as long as they have what you want. I met my mom and three nieces in Toledo today and we walked through the mall (I didn't buy anything, but I had fun). It was fun being with my mom, Olivia, Jacynda and Heidi today. Thanks mom (and girls) for spending the day with me.
