Christmas Shopping



I’m going to cautiously say that I think I am done Christmas shopping.  I need to pull out my list and check it twice.  But I think I have everything I need.

Stocking stuffers?  Check!  They came in the mail today.

Santa presents for the kids?  Check!  I bought Butterfly’s right after school started and then I got the boys’ from Craig’s List this week.

Presents from us to the kids?  Check!  And thank you, kind blogging people who send me free stuff to try out or gift cards to use.

Presents to the extended family?  Check!  I ordered those on Monday and hopefully they will be to my house soon.  Then I can divvy them up, wrap them, and ship them to the appropriate houses.

Presents for friends?  Check!  I only buy a few things for a few select friends but I hope they like what I have for them this year.

Presents from the kids to their siblings?  Uh…half check?  I have some presents left over from last year (I KNOW!) that the boys will give each other.  I’d like to take Butterfly to the store with a dollar limit and let her pick something out for the boys.  We did that last weekend after seeing Tangled, but she didn’t see anything she wanted.  Um, wanted to get THEM, she kept saying.


Hey, I even ordered my Christmas cards.  Now I can focus on the holiday season.  And this holiday season I will be perfecting “Don’t touch the tree!” in a very loud and stern voice.  I must practice this at least 30 times a day, if not more.

    Wow! You are so ahead of this game. While I have all the major presents taken care of there a re a few holes I need to fill in. I have yet to battle the buying presents for the sisters, good luck with the rest of your list!

    at my house it’s:
    “HEY!!” for Angel
    “That’s not food” for Seraph – she really likes putting Christmas lights in her mouth. eeek.
    The other kids are doing pretty well….though I haven’t tempted them with wrapped presents. We keep those high above the cupboards.

      We keep our cereal high above the cupboards so that won’t work. Hmm…
