And I'm a little be excited! Ok, I'm a LOT excited!!! I've always had husband to blab all my xmas excitement to......and well.....so you guys are gonna get it instead. UPS is going to hate me this year. I've done my first online shopping ever. Now my very first order easy child helped me with.....but I couldn't let her help me with anything else because it would include her xmas gift. Same for the other kids. So mom had to figure out how to do it herself. Because they also can't go shopping with me......and yeah. lol So, hopefully my kids won't be snoopy. Men: easy child's husband: emergency crank radio, swiss army knife, larger roadside emergency kit, hat & scarf (made by me) Nichole's husband: emergency crank radio, swiss army knife, large roadside emergency kit, nook cover (made by me) Travis: swiss army knife, nook, and book for it by a fav author Women: easy child: huge emergency first aide kit, large roadside emergency kit, food dehydrator, hat & scarf Nichole: huge emergency first aide kit, large roadside emergency kit, waffle maker, large make up kit thingie Soooo excited! First tine in quite a while I thought up really good gifts for everyone AND managed to get them what they wanted!! Plus as you can see most of the gifts are very very handy to have. Maybe once I get all the kids gifts sorted out by what they have I'll add them.......But that might be quite a list. Now..........now I can't wait until xmas! And yes, for those who might be wondering.........I'm doing what mother in law did the xmas after father in law passed away, and while I sort of "got it" back when she did it.......I really get it now. Like with her, this will probably be the only year I do it. But for me this year, if it weren't for shop therapy and hunting down gifts the kids would not only love but can really use, my holiday spirit would most likely be in the sewer. Nice thing about it is.....much of it I hunted around and got it really cheap.
