Last Christmas Present Wrapped

I always do Christmas shopping over the summer, when I have more free time. I have a large extended family, so a lot of people to shop for. This takes a lot of the stress out of the holidays. I just finished up my shopping and got everything for the kids, just wrapped the last present and put it away in the back room, just wanted to share because I can't wait to see them open their gifts.

For Abel (7)-


(starlord dress up costume)



Ariadne (1)-



Firo (1)-


They are also having donations made to the Heifer Project in their names. 

We might get a few more clothing articles closer to Christmas, but otherwise it feels so good to be done, now I can just relax and enjoy the holidays.

I always say I'm going to do that. Maybe next year. You rock.

No wrapping has been done yet, but vast majority of my shopping is done. I have angry Birds GO! Telepods, lots of books, misc transformers and Lego sets for my oldest (5). Various cars, some clothes, wooden toys and wooden tool sets for my youngest (1). Right now the older one outweighs the younger, so we are trying to slightly balance it more.

I love the name Abel! I tried to convince my DHS to use it for our Silas, but he didn't care for it.

Thanks, I come so close to just not doing it each year but then I remember how much stress it saves down the road. I just set a date and go for it, bit by bit.

Congratulations. I'm also done shopping and wrapping. I'm a single mom and my son is not even 2yo so he is only getting three presents.

Lalalalala I'm not listening..

If I deny Christmas is coming.. Maybe I can go deep enough into denial that I will really believe ..

Haha jk I like Christmas, I just don't like the traveling.

I want some of your kid's presents for Christmas! Lol
