Is it wrong to just want to fill stockings for Christmas for the kids' cousions at the grandparents house and buy for my kids? We don't even buy for the kids on my side of the family because we don't see them. When my sister brings her daughter over or lets me know that she will be at our parents then I buy for her daughter but if I don't get the chance to see the gift opened I don't buy the gift. Especially when I don't even get a call thank you. So no more gifts that way. But this year is tight so is it bad to just fill a stocking with small things and candy..??Answer Question

We have a huge family and don't spend Christmas morning with any of them but our kids and usually my MIL if she stays the night. We buy for our kids, each other his mom and my parents, grandma and brother (who still lives at home with mom and dad) as well as hubby's best friend who is more like a brother to him. Hubby has 17 nieces and nephews and 23 great nieces and nephews (all of his siblings were teens when he was born and they managed to reproduce like rabbits). He is not close to his extended family and there is no way we could afford to buy for that many. We send Christmas cards and that's it.
