My DH and I have our business in Construction. The Economy is so bad, we recently had to shut our doors on the company, not a great time of year for this, I have 5 grandkids, all little, who are use to coming  to grammy's for a big Christmas, and as of right now, we can not afford to buy for them. I am so heart broken about this, By now I have usually got all my decorating done, this year I have done nothing, no tree. I have gone as far as telling my kids that I am not having xmas this year, I can not look into those little faces with nothing. Sorry had to vent!!

Oh, that's heartbreaking. I'm so sorry. You know, something small but special can go a long way. Make up little mason jars of cookie mix with a note promising to have a special day baking with grandma. I bet that would mean more to them than a big gift anyway.
Hugs. I hope y'all land on your feet & work it out soon!

Welcome to the group.

I'm very sorry to hear, I know times are hard for a lot right now, including our family.

They will be happy to see you regardless if you have gifts or not. I'm sure there are some cheap gift or craft ideas you can maybe think of??

We have no decorations and not many presents either. This year has been very hard for us too. :/

Thank You, I am sorry to hear this about you also. I will just be glad when Dec is over, hoping the New Year brings better things

I try to remind myself, it could always be worse...
