Christmas is Coming!

I don't know about you, but I can't wait for Christmas to get here. It's my favorite holiday.

It's been on my mind because:

A) I started my shopping. I want to get the bulk of it done before it gets freezing cold outside and snowy and icy.
B) Because it did start getting cold I got in the mood for Christmas shopping.
C) I have a few relatives that have birthdays right around Christmas, which makes things expensive. I feel inclined to start early.

So far what have I gotten:

I haven't gotten EVERYTHING by no means. Just a little bit here, and a little more there.

  • Awhile ago I got my youngest nephews and sons reusable superhero sandwich bags. That's just part of their presents.
  • Our nephew Evan gets a Volcano Science Kit. I got that at Hobby Lobby. Always check their site for a 40% off coupon!
  • I haven't decided who I'm giving this to: Isaak and our Nephew Elijah are getting mini portfolios from Hobby Lobby. They are 9 x 12 and were only $2.99! They came in industrial colored plastic. I bought mini metal rulers with cork backing, mini triangles. I plan on filling them with stencils, paper and colored pencils. - Or I'll give them to Isaak and Mica from Santa. If I do this Mica's will have a scratchboard set in it. I think he'd love that. Especially the rainbow one! I just have to decide if it will be for the 4 year olds or to our boys from Santa. Decisions! 
  • Daddy wants to get the boys Nintendo DS systems. YIKES! Ya we haven't owned anything like that, so it will be interesting. 
  • I got Mica and Isaak building kits from Fat Brain Stores. I can't remember the exact kits, but they were cool when we picked them out! 
  • I got Daddy 1 thing, but I can't say what it is on here. 
  • My niece Kailey is almost in college. She needs money. I'm thinking of getting a big box, small balloons and putting money in each of the balloons. 25 balloons = $25. She's gotta have fun still, right? I may do the balloon thing for our nephew that lives in Missouri and my oldest nephew Ethan that's getting hard to shop for. Cheap to ship because it's so light. 
  • I know I have random other things in the closet. It's just a matter of looking.
YAY for Christmas!

Good for you. I have won some things that I am going to give as gifts but I still need to shop also.

I like going shopping on Black Friday... Well, I don't really like it, but there are a lot of good deals.

I also buy clearance things in January and save them for Christmas..

You rock. I am almost done with my shopping. I cannot stand the crowds, so I like to get the majority of my shopping done by Halloween.
