Has anyone else done any Christmas shopping yet. I am happy to say yesterday I purchased everything online and even though I just purchased it yesterday am it is scheduled for delivery today yay all that is left is stocking stuffers and a few loose ends for my sun but that is hockey stuff so my husband will be finishing that but the other 2 are done. I know it isnt even halloween yet but I am so glad that it is finished now if I can get it all wrapped before the baby comes the first wk of Dec I will be even happerier then all I will have to do is clean a few days before Christmas for the family.

I have started and am almost finished! I have even already wrapped everything in my house I need to. A bulk of my stuff is at Kmart layway. I only have my dad, sister, BIL niece and grandparents left. However I know what I am going to get them. So really it is just a matter of my next paycheck coming in so I can get the rest of it.
I am SO relieved that I am almost done as I know it is going to take all my energy to decorate for Christmas. I cannot imagine going through the crowds trying to purchase things as well.

I haven't even started yet!! Although I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to get the shopping done before baby arrives. I have no idea what I'm getting for anyone yet, which might be part of the reason I haven't bought anything, lol. I'm really looking forward to decorating, though. We recently moved into a new house (as the one we had been renting for 2 years was being foreclosed on!!), and it is MUCH bigger and has soooo many more places for me to put stuff. I love to decorate for Christmas.

I have a list of what I am getting anyone and have just started to pick things up when I see them on sale.

I'm just about finished for the older kids, I'm actually going to Toys R Us tomrorrow after work to complete the list.

I think for my parents & brother/SIL & MIL everyone is getting gift cards!! I order Scrip through my son's school so that will be easy enough :)

I'll be going to my daughter's book fair next week to pick up a few things. I prefer to shop during Christmas season because it just feels more Christmasy. Plus, we don't have a lot of storage so I wouldn't have anywhere to put things this far in advance. I'm on a rag wreath making kick so I might do one for everyone now.

I'm not too worried about putting decorations up; it's the coming down that scares me. Will it get done before May? lol

Don't worry about decorations not coming down until May......we moved Oct. 1-8 (just a few weeks ago) and I still had a few Christmas things up! There were some lights above the front door that we had forgotten were up there (since the batteries died and they didn't light up anymore) and 2 or 3 stockings still on the wall. Pathetic, I know! Hopefully I'll do much better this year about getting things put away in a timely manner, lol.
