I started shopping for christmas in sept... I didn't realize how overkill it was until I wrapped everything. O.o


Anyone else buy too much this year? LOL


Seriously, my back hurts, I spent hours and hours wrapping crap today.

I didn't. I bought each kid one big gift then five or six small ones. Budget isn't greaf this year. Washer and dryer breaking sucked some of my savings lol

We did okay for the kids this year. I started shopping in June and finished in October. But for some reason my Dad and my MIL think that having a third child means we can't give them a decent Christmas. Both sets of grand-parents spent over $200 on each kid! I don't have room for all the crap they're getting!

We have the opposite problem here. We didn't get anything for eachother & we got the babies each a small toy & a humidifier for their room. That's all we can afford this year. Good thing they are too little to know!

We still have each of their big santa gift and stockings to put under the tree. None of that is for my husband and I - it's all the kid's stuff. LOL 
This is what happens when mom is bored at 4am with the baby and can shop online.

That looks awesome.!! 

We wrapped all our presents around the tree and stacked a crap ton behind so the cats wouldn't destroy them. LOL

Last year was pretty tight, so we didn't have a ton of stuff.

This year, we sort of spoiled them because of everything we've been through with losing Zeke and Wyatt's hospital stay and all that stuff.

I went way overboard. I need to stop shopping early cause I keep shopping till christmas. I started shopping in September lol. Online shopping makes it way to easy to buy too much. Also this is presents for my entire family, parents, in laws, neices and 2 nephews and I bought a ton for my husband this year because he's usually not easy to shop for but this year I new exactly what I wanted to get him. My kids are definitely spoiled though but we have always gone all out for Christmas since I was a little kid.

The 1st pic was Christmas 2011 my toddler wasn't born yet (he was due in feb but came 5wks early) some of these for were for us but this is mostly his and my oldest's sons presents. The 2nd pic is my toddlers 1st Christmas these are 95% all his presents, we had already done Christmas with his brother. Last year was the same. This year he has some big presents so there's not as many but it's still a lot and then baby girl got some since she's still too young dh wanted to not go as crazy for her. I but on clearance though so I'm good about staying at or under budget.
