It’s Christmas time again

Our Family Ornament for the Christmas Tree

Well it’s two weeks before Christmas, and I still have no idea what the hell I am getting everyone. I go through this every year and always run out two or three days before Christmas to get everyone’s gifts.
I usually do pretty good, I think so anyway. You never know really what to get someone for Christmas. My wife always says that she doesn’t need anything or she doesn’t want anything but I know if I don’t get her anything I am in deep shit.

My daughters are now at the age, being teenagers, That I have no idea of what to get them. I think that gift cards to the mall so that they could buy clothes that they want would probably be the best bet.

The big gift that I want to get the entire family this year, I am not sure I’m going to be able to afford. I’ve been saving and cutting corners for the past couple months trying to save up enough money to take the family to Disney World in Orlando. But it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen this year. We’ve been going to Disney World with the girls since Jessica was 18 months old. That first year that we went it cost us a total of $3000. I am pricing out the vacation for this year, 12 years later than I first, and I am getting a minimum of $5200. Right now it is averaging about $125 a day for us to just go into The Disney World Parks. Not to mention roughly $85-$125 a day for each of us for food. Airline tickets this year are almost twice as much as they were that first year that we went.
So I’m hoping for some sort of Christmas miracle, a huge bonus from work, or winning a lottery ticket so that we can go in 2017.
If I not able to get that gift, I will continue to save and it will look like we will go in the year 2018. The last time that my family had going to Disney, was right after my father passed away. I want Disney to be a different type of memory for my daughters than it is right now. When we went down in 2015, we met my mother and my sister coming home and making arrangements for my father’s remains to come home.

Disney is always been a special place for my family and I don’t want this to be the last reminder but my daughters as they grow older.

All right

All right enough of the sad stuff. Like I said Christmas is upon us we are two weeks away from it. And even if I am not able to get this gift for my family I am very grateful for the things that I have. I have a beautiful wife that loves me and I love her very much and I have two beautiful intelligent daughter’s that I would go through a brick wall for, so

I guess I couldn’t ask for anything more.
