Target and Walmart have little princess dolls that are like Polly Pockets. My DD2 loves anything princess and these are just her size. I hope this helps!

Snapfish has woven blankets 50% off and desktop calendars 3 for $14.99.

I'm doing vintage window frame shelf picture frames for mil, gmils, sils and aunt. I already have the frames just need to paint them and put the pictures in. I'll also get me, mil and aunt the desktop calendars. Nieces and nephews are getting Walmart bf deals, $5 princess barbies, $5 hot wheels, $20 leapster, $18 rocking pink pony, and $5 doll stroller I think there's a few more I can't think of right now. I don't know what I'll get my mom and dad, all grandparents will get photo calendars.

We are at Disney right now so that's our main gift to each other. Me and dh will give/get a couple small things like clothes or a joint gift for the house.
Ds2 is getting a power wheels four wheeler I bought used in great condition and a tool bench for his big Santa gifts. He will get a couple small things from us like dvds, vacuum, books, puzzles, trucks and whatever else I find a good deal on at black Friday.

This is my first post here and I'm glad I found y'all! I love Christmas and shopping

Agree on the mini princess dolls -- those are usually good. Disney Store had some small Minnie Mouse cars and Ariel cars near the front. Target also has the mini baby dolls (think Wal-mart does too) and you can hit Ross or Marshall or TJ Maxx to see what is there -- I picked up a Dora jewelry set for about $5-6 for my niece.

I always love giving GCs because it fits everyone! I like doing Target ones because you can use it for necessities, luxuries or even Starbucks inside the store. You can consider local lunch places or local movie theater. Otherwise, think it depends on her interests.

Sometimes you can find Beanie Boos for around that price on Amazon. For example.

I've started to secretly pack for our upcoming disney Christmas surprise trip, I can't wait to see the look on the kids' faces

Here is a recipe that I have for apple muffins and they are delish. I've made them several times and they are yummy:

Topping
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, melted

Batter
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk (or use 1 tsp vinegar in 1 cup milk)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
2 cups diced apples

Directions:
Topping-mix all together, until mixture forms crumbs. Set aside

Batter- Whisk together egg, buttermilk, butter, and vanilla. Stir in sugar.
Without mixing, add flour, baking soda, salt and apples. Stir just until combined. Do not over mix. Spoon into muffin cups. Sprinkle with the topping.

Bake at 375 degrees F for 20 minutes or until firm to the touch.


Now, this one, I haven't personally tried, but it sounds delish and I think you can find the recipe for it on pinterest, but, you dice up apples and cook them on the stove with whatever you usually use for pie filling (brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, whatever) until they are tender. Then you use canned cinnamon rolls and I think you can get 3 or 4 of this mini pies out of one roll, but you press the cinnamon bun into a greased muffin pan, fill with apple filling, then put a pie crumb on top (I plan to just use the topping from the above recipe since we all liked it). Then you bake according to the cinnamon bun directions and when they come out, drizzle the icing on top. I think they sound delish and I plan to try them on Thanksgiving morning

I have a cousin who is about 30, and is a middle school teacher. Any ideas for Christmas presents for her?

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

Get her something non-school related.

A restaurant gift card, a sweater, a fleece throw, a gift card to the movies...

A giant bottle of Tylenol..........kidding!! Seriously, I have two middle schoolers, bless her heart and patience!

How about a Barnes & Noble gift card, that way she can use it on her classroom or personally.

I think I am done with my kids Xmas presents besides getting some stocking stuffers. I ended up getting my daughter the Toys R Us Doc McStuffins dolls, since BJ's was out of them when I went back. I got the last ones at Toys R Us. I always tell myself when I see it to just get it, but I didn't this time. Oh well. I have to look in my storage unit for the other stuff I have collected previously that she and my son will get this year. Once I know everything, I will list it out. I may do alittle black friday shopping for dvd's. other than that, I AM DONE! DH's best friend is a manager at CVS, so those small stocking stuffer deals I will be able to get anytime (he'll just hold it for me).

Time to get through Thanksgiving and then this coming weekend, time for Christmas decorations. YEAH!!!!

I officially have my DH started. I have the list of what to buy each kid done and I have started them. I hope to have kids done on BF. Now to move onto the hard people the Parents & Grandparents! The Grandparents will most likely be gift cards. I know what to get my mom, Dad, and Stepmom but I am at a lost for DH's parents. I hate just giving gift cards to them.

But, we asked her what she wants and she gave us ONE idea. DH insists that we can't just buy her one gift, and her birthday is coming up in December as well, so I need more ideas!

She is retired and well, kind of...reclusive. She doesn't go anywhere or do anything if she can avoid it- the one exception is that she does travel sometimes (though we have travelled with her and she is just as reclusive when travelling! She stays in her room!). I'm trying to think of something travel related I could get her, but she's kind of snobby about stuff and I'm not sure she'd use it- it would have to be something really new and different. But I'd be open to any travel ideas you have.

The one thing she asked for is a robe. Normally with someone so difficult I would start to think about the personalized, nostalgic stuff, but I've done a photo calendar before and one year I took the kids to one of those paint your own pottery places and we made her a platter, and I never saw the calendar or the platter ever again. I just have NO ideas for her whatsoever.
What about Scentsy? If she's home alot maybe she would enjoy her home smelling wonderful. Of course I sell it so I'm bias
