yes but i haven't gotten much of anything yet. I haven't had the $$ I have a ton of doctor bills and have to have surgery next month so I'm scared of what that will cost. i might not be able to do much of anything.

I started a little while back. Dh, dd and I went shopping yesterday at walmart because we needed groceries, so we shopped for Christmas at the same time. We got my son a grilled-cheese maker, a set of drinking glasses, silverware in a tray, a xbox 360 game he asked for, some movies for the family, a coffee mug set (Elvis) for my dh, snowshoes for my dd, gym towels for my dh and ds, snowboard tv interactive game for dd (just plug it to the tv and the game will start) for dd and some other stuff for stockings. we will be shopping until Christmas eve.

I am going to start next week. 

I will be purchasing a few gift cards for the mall at different areas and three iPads for my kids.  I wish I could find a good deal on iPads, but haven't yet.

I find it really weird that people will "gift" basic things like beds to their children, clothes (unless its something beyond the basics), etc.

My son is getting a fish aquarium for 2 African Dward .  His birthday is in December as well, so not sure if the aquarium is for his birthday or Christmas.  Also thinking about a nitro R/C truck.  Definitley books and a B&N gift card since the only thing he asks for is books.  Other than that - I am drawing a blank.  Any ideas for 10 year old boys?

If it wasn't for me making a little extra cash the last few months we probably wouldn't gave been able to get them stuff this year.but we knew this year was going to be tight with buying the house after Christmas we will be a lot better and things should be back to normal
