How much do you have done? How much do you have left?

We only have SS big present ( an electric fourwheeler), stocking stuffers, and we are getting him race car flags. Other than that we are done with him.  We lucked up and found alot of awesome stuff for him on clearance racks.

All of our family will be receiving a picture of Aaden in a frame along with some baked goodies

I have no idea what I'm getting my husband. Any ideas?

I have not started yet because my son's birthday is next month so I've been buying for that. After his birthday I will start.  My family is drawing names so each person only has to buy one present (we are all broke this year).  I always get my husband a $50 gift card for "Game Crazy" and $50 gift card for "FYE".

We've started with some little things. We won't be buying much this year. We've decided to take our normal Christmas budget, split it in quarters, spend 1/4 on DS, 1/4 on both DH and I plus our family and the other half on people who need Christmas to be a pick-me-up. It's been a ROUGH year for so many families. They deserve a wonderful Christmas more than we do.

Yes we CAN and Yes we DID!!!!

 I haven't started yet but I have been thinking of what to get. First I will get DD and DH's done and then we will buy for hte little kids of the family. Last year we didn't have the budget to buy for the adults so we just bought for the little kids. This year I may send out some home made stuff...i'm not sure yet. It's hard to believe Christmas is almost here!

I think I may get DH some PJ's b/c he needs some new ones and I will start listening close for something he asks for or shows interest in so I can get it for him.

I've already started.  I buy for Hanukkah, Christmas and DD's birthday in November so I always get an early start.  I've bought some small things for my kids, my nieces and brother and father and a few stocking stuffers.  I don't really have ideas for big gifts except DS is getting an iPod.  DH and I have cut way back on our spending for each other.  I have no idea what I'll get him yet.

I started about a month ago, just buying a few gifts whenever I'm out shopping.  It really takes the stress off, we only have one Toys R us and it serves Memphis and the neighboring suburbs so they run out of everything!   Have to shop early.
