Christmas Shopping at last


















Yay, I have actually started my Christmas shopping. I know, I'm very naughty this year. I've usually nearly finished by now.
I have decided that we are all too spoilt. No-one really needs anything. Everyone seems to buy whatever they want or need and not have to wait for much any more. Usually I know exactly what I will buy people, but not this year. Anyway, I have made a start. All the littles are nearly finished and I just need to work out what to give my older "kids".

I have found it a bit hard too this year, but have pared it right down. Each child will get just one present each from each member of the family. And one each from Santa. That's it.

We all do have too much.

Glad you have got it started. Have fun :)

So true. We don't wait for anything anymore do we?

I havent started yet but I dont have a lot to do except for my children and husband. We made an agreement with the rest that Christmas would just be about getting together and having a meal. Made it a lot easier.

Good luck with the Christmas shopping - I find the 'older' kids the more difficult to buy for. You are right - nobody seems to wait for anything - it is all instant gratification. What happened to the waiting for 3 or 4 months for Christmas for the lastest craze to be given to you ??????? Sometimes I think the anticipation of what you thought you would get almost outweighed the joy of opening your present and seeing it in front of you.
Take care and hope you manage to finish your shopping soon.
