    This Christmas will be extra special for me because it’s the first year that Alex is old enough to really understand that there’s something special about Christmas Day. I hope you have a wonderful time with your family as well.

    I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for reading CFO. I really enjoy and appreciate all of the comments – I know it’s corny, but the relationships that I’ve formed via blogging are very special to me.

    If you have a chance to go shopping in the days after Christmas, I highly recommend it. You’ll find lots of great sales. Pick up wrapping and tissue paper for next year, plus plain wrapping and tissue paper that you can use year-round. Pick up next year’s holiday cards, and stocking stuffers that will make great party favors throughout the year (for example, Target has little tubs of Playdoh in a plastic candy cane that could be broken up for party favors). Happy shopping!
