OMG I am doing it now too... AHHHHHHHH

But I have been thinking about it... Logan's birthday falls on a BAD weekend for family events and I don't think he will "get" it but I am pretty sure that Xmas is going to be FUN!!!!! So, I just wanted to check and see how long we have...

Have you started? Where do you stash everything?

I haven't started yet. I don't plan on buying anything for DH's family this year. We only did last year because we were in GA around the holidays and we celebrated with them. I'll get my parents and brother something because they do stuff for us all the time. I have NO idea what I'll get Connor!!!! Maybe print his scrapbooks that I HAVE to get caught up on (printing and putting together on shutterfly!) I may find a couple Umizoomi things but that's about it. He has enough toys for a daycare. I also get Reese a present. I may get a Barbie for her. I was going to for her bday but I thought of something else :)

I am pretty much done with the kids. Alex's stuff is stashed in the garage and at Kmart til I finish the layaway. Abby's stuff is in the garage and at my parents' place. Hubby and I agreed no gifts for each other this year. We will celebrate once he gets thru the academy. While cleaning, we have found previously purchased items that were meant to be gifts, but were packed away and forgotten. So, we are done with family. Everyone is aware that we are majorly cutting back on the gift giving.

Reese is getting an art table and art supplies, and a tag jr ( I got connor one for his bday and Reesey loves it lol). I will get my 2 nephews something, and I will get Connor something. That's about it. Reese has so much already and her bday is in October so she will get gifts then too. With nursing school starting, money will be tight.

Santa will be travelign light this year :( atleast Reese isnt big enough to realize that she didnt get much.

Someone asked me today if I had started on Christmas yet. I know I should start earlier (at a minimum the budget part). I'm one who never wants to really buy gifts or decorate until after Thanksgiving. I somehow feel like it detracts from the other holidays.
