I think I can call mine a mild Christmas...LOL I'm glad your family will all be happy together. I havent spent any holiday with my momma for 2 years! I'm at war with my stepdad so thats why. I miss her I dont see her as often because of him...

I don't think Christmas will be crappy for me this year.  It's my son's first Christmas, I was only able to spend $25 on his gifts, but I know he won't care (he'll play more with the wrapping paper anyway)!  I also get to see my family, and that's all that matters to me!

We actually aren't having a bad Christmas because of lay offs or income.  We are cutting back because we don't feel that Christmas should be about the oodles and oodles of presents under the tree but the significance and heart that goes into them.  Plus IF we ever decide to have a 3rd child, we'll have to cut back anyway and our kids are still young enough Christmas isn't about all the expensive gifts but about the magic that Santa brings them presents, whether its 1 or 5. 

Want to be your own boss?  Never be laid off or fired again!  Through Dec. 26 get $25 off your kit through
