She's ready for Christmas!

 
No, not me....I'm lucky to be ready by December 20th.
 
I'm talking about my 11 year old granddaughter, K.
 
You see, K and I are planning to have a yard sale later this month. I've been cleaning out closets and the basement, gathering treasures to sell and K has been doing the same at her parent's house. Almost weekly, I bring bags of books and toys over to keep in the garage until the big day.
 
Even our neighbors joined in. They recently moved away and generously contributed several boxes of previously loved goodies to K's yard sale. Up until the past week, K had not investigated her growing stash, but now she thought it was time to see what she would be putting out for sale.
 
And she was thrilled with what she found!
 
"Oh look, Grammie! My Mommy would love this! And Daddy would love this! And Nani would love that!" and so on and so on and so on....
 
By the time she was finished inspecting the boxes, K announced that she had all of her Christmas shopping done! And she was so proud of herself.
 
"This is the first time I've done my own shopping, Grammie! Everyone will be so surprised!"
 
I can see that this yard sale is going to have to be an annual event.

I'm coming over on the blog train! It sounds like she took a lot of things off the "inventory" of the yard sale. I'm looking forward to hearing how the yard sale went!

I just hopped off the bloggy train! What a sweet little thing. Around here, we Christmas shop in July, too. By October, it's done! And good for you, too. Less to put out on the sale!
