I feel like I have taken a step farther into my adult life where I actually have people I want to give gifts to! My stepmom invited me over to celebrate an early Christmas because my nieces will be down here from Tuscon and they will be going up to Oregon to go see their dad the next day. So everything is going to be celebrated early on the 23rd. I thought it was so nice for her to invite me since I haven't spent Christmas with my dad and stepfamily since I was like 12. no kidding, I think that was the last time I actually celebrated with them, that is crazy! But now with that, I want to actually give gifts! I am an adult, I should be able to do that. I don't have money so I will be making gifts for everyone. For my nieces, I will make them dolls that look similar to them, and perhaps give them a few outfits to play with. For my dad and stepmom I am going to be doing some punch needle projects, I haven't done anything with punch needle in a while, so this will be something. I still haven't decided what I want to do for my step-sister, that would be the mom of my two nieces and I don't know if anyone else is going to be there. But that is already a lot I have to do anyway. Then I am making two gifts for my mom, she requested to things for me to make and so I shall do it! I already got my grandma's gift and that will be coming in the mail, whenever it does. And then I have a friend who wanted to do gifts this year I am going to be drawing him something. Holy cow I have so much to do! And i feel so happy that I can! I think the next step to my adulthood is to actually get an address book and be able to send cards and stuff out, that would be awesome! Ahh I am so happy and overwhelmed but mostly happy!

Nice, isn't it? I was going to send cards this year, but "broke" ensued, lol. I'm going to have to leave that part out of the ritual. This year will be especially nice because it's my year to have Christmas with my son and daughter in law. They'll be coming here from Santa Fe. I think they should be here EVERY year, since her parents live in Santa Fe and they see them all the time. BUT that' s not the way it works, lol. I remember when I got my first job and was so happy to be able to buy gifts with my own fundage. What an awesome feeling!

I just don't know enough people to send cards out to haha maybe I will stop being a chicken and ask for addresses next year haha I just feel so creepy doing that. I do have money, but I know not everything would come in on time and I have no idea when I would be able to see everyone again haha but it is still a fun feeling!
