Outfit for Abbey Bominable Outfit for Clawdeen Wolf (She's getting clawdeen from my MIL) Pajamas, Barbie doll, Hello Kitty hair brush and hair acessories, Body wash/shampoo, Crayola set to make her own fashions. And probably some things I forgot.

nephew: I sent him Lilli's stuff that looked like boy clothes



My family is getting pictures. and I sent a 3D Moose bookmark to a friend of mine back in New York

ETA: I forgot that I got Abby some Hello Kitty nail decals from Sephora.

LOl Shannin if Abby was old enough and wanted one I'd get her a tattoo for Christmas. Abby decided that she does want her ears pierced though. So next week we're going to claires to get them done. Hopefully with Hello Kitty

We've only bought our son his bearded dragon so far. We are doing the rest of our shopping this weekend. We are such the procrastinators! :) Oh we took our son to get his Santa pictures this weekend too. I sat last night and did Christmas cards and mailed out the Santa pictures. Soooo glad that's done!

I hear ya on wanting clothes for Christmas. I have a sweater that is so thread bare I have to wear a same color shirt under it so you can't see how thin it is. Terrible isn' it but the kitchen doesn't care when I bake bread in it. :)

I want some clothes for Christmas, especially some sweaters because I keep wearing the same damn thing over and over!

[deleted account]

I don't usually give clothes for Christmas either. This year, I bought John a few shirts, but they are fun clothes--they have cool geek graphics on them.

At Christmas you are supposed to give people things that they would enjoy but would normally not take the time or money to buy for themselves, right? Fun stuff. I would rather pick out my own clothes, I have to try everything on and no one seems to get my taste, so I don't usually like getting clothes unless it's just a funky vintage tee or something. And I just figure everyone is like me cause I'm normal :)

I think I bought some last year for Morgan, but she's the youngest of 3 and was only 9 months old at the time. So she already had tons of baby toys and stuff handed down by the older two. I didn't know what else to buy her.

Yeah, my hubby's the same way. I mentioned buying socks for them for stocking stuffers and he looked at me like I just grew a second head.

Lee doesn't believe in buying clothes for Christmas, but tough shit because Abby needs more PJs and the ones I bought for her were cute and on sale. Last year and the year before she got a lot of clothes and toys.

Niki, get your MIL a big assed chunk of coal for Christmas it sounds like she deserves it.

I have no idea what Lee bought me. He hid it in the apartment and I know he didn't wrap it yet.

Jenni, I haven't seen too many Lalaloopsy dolls here in BC. Abby's into Monster High dolls this year. She gets to open Abbey on the 23rd because we'll be with Lee's dad's family that day.

My sister buys them clothes every year. She's always been a clothes-a-holic. That girl has the hugest wardrobe I ever saw... ok, next to my mom's. Figures where she gets it. But she has amazing taste.

But the poor kids, they rip open her present expecting a toy and the look of disappointment is priceless. Meah, what do you expect from preschoolers. lol I love it though, my sis has rockin' taste.

We're not buying for each other this year. Meah.



But for the kids;



Kira- Lalaloopsy playset, Strawberry shortcake playset



Ben- Animal Planet dinosaur set, Alphie



Morgan- wooden activity cube, lalaloopsy doll



All- Glow Tent



I'm thinking about picking up this really awesome bath set with musical instruments and bath art stuff in it for all of them.



Still have to get some stocking stuffers and hubby is still in the mood to look around for more gifts for them. So we'll see.



I kind of want to use their Christmas money from relatives to buy some clothes for their winter wardrobes.



We usually get restaurant/liquor store gift cards for the adults in our family, last minute!

I'm soooooo not in the Christmas spirit. My MIL still isn't talking to us. I need to send cards out still, but I don't know my FIL's address. Uhhhhhhhhhhh....... chaos. Total chaos. My kids are 1 and 3 months old so I don't want to buy them anymore toys. The only thing we thought about getting the 1 year old for Christmas is a push around sitting buggy or whatever you call them LOL car? Truck? The neighbor boy at my mom's house had one and he liked it so maybe that. A whopping 20$ they are at Target but they didn't have the one I wanted so I wonder if I can even FIND the one she has.......... uuuuuuugh. I hate that. See some toy at someone's house, want to buy it, and they don't sell it anymore?! Omg

We really dont need anything. We are saving up for another cruise in February. But I do get to wrap all, well most of the gifts. The ones that santa brings do not get wrapped. They are left under the tree unwrapped. I have issues going out in crowds so the internet works well for me. But if I did like to shop, oh boy because when I do something it is all or nothing. HA HA

MIL is like that. She is a million years old and has everything. She wants us to give her things like Clean out the Bonus Room, or Hand Wash Car Washes. I would rather die. LOL

It's all in the trunk of my car right now and I don't remember what I've bought so far lol. I just went and got wrapping paper so I can wrap it while my oldest is at school and make a list of what we've bought. I still have to get my son his big present if I can decide what it's going to be :( otherwise I'll be doing the majority of my shopping this week when I get paid, we've had some major unexpected problems to come up this year so it's been a disaster trying to budget.

...Let's see
J got a Luna guitar, tuner, picks, a stand, and learning software for his computer. He also got the log cabin & light house 3-n-1 lego sets, a set of architectural wooden blocks, Little Big Planet 2 (for PS3), The Last Air Bender (for PSP), and some other video game John bought. He got 3 or 4 books, 3 wood model sets to put together with John, a wooden ladder toy thing he wanted, and a collectible plush Sack Boy. And Stocking stuffers.

It seems like a lot more than it is when you type it out like that....

John got a grilling apron, a rubic's cube with our pictures on it, a Geek pen, a gaming control thing for his computer, 3 shirts & a hoodie, a slotted spoon, 2 books, a wallet, and a mind bender puzzle. And stocking stuffers.

Our parents all got photobooks from Snapfish, framed pictures of themselves with J, a tin of cookies (that will be baked by J) and one other gift--a guitar stand, a gift certificate, a puzzle, and I haven't figured my dad out yet. I think it will be a framed picture that I drew.

All of the kids on my mom's side got plush donkeys with the Christmas prayer attached and a candy cane. (2 dozen of those).

My sister got a hat and scarf set, a framed picture of her with J, and a tin of cookies. Her girlfriend got her favorite lip gloss and a box of Godiva chocolate.
