How ready are you?

So, the holidays are quickly approaching....how ready are you?
Do you have your shopping done?
Do you have your tree?
Is it decorated?
Do you send Christmas cards?
Have you sent them yet?
Do you take holiday pictures?
Any holiday parties coming up?
Holiday traditions you just can't live without?
Do you open presents on Christmas Eve or just Christmas day?

I just want to know how behind I am! I have been trying to get the boys to clean up their rooms today so we can get the decorations down and deck the halls....they don't want to clean up. They DO want to decorate but they don't want to clean up.....makes NO sense to me!

My shopping is 85% done.
I have a tree & it's decorated. My mantle & the rest of the house is not. I have my prelit garland on the mantle & the staircase but nothing else.
Cards are ordered & here. Just not addressed or mailed.
A few parties, nothing special.
My kids are allowed to open one present on Christmas Eve. It's always a new pair of pajamas. Everything else has to wait until the next morning.

Done with everythin
Except-our real tree we cut down. My hub. has gotten posion ivy the last two years, and just yesterday, he took our dog out on the icy steps, and FELL down!!! (On his back!!) (Yep-it was a hospital visit...)
He's fine, but could he have planned it so he can avoid posion ivy for a third year??? Hard to say...LOL

I am ready when it comes to holiday cheer but when it comes to shopping then no. I've only got one present purchased. Our tree is up and decorated as is the porch with lights. I do send Christmas cards but I am planning on making them this year with a family pic and we haven't even taken the picture yet. We do have a work Christmas party coming up but don't have all the details worked out yet. We open presents on Christmas morning after we have a quiet Christmas eve reading the story of Christ's birth with our children.
