I'm doing pretty good here, I have everything bought except a couple gift cards, I'll pick those up when I'm grocery shopping this week. I even have everything that has arrived wrapped. I'm waiting on a couple things I ordered online, but I'm confident they'll be here this week.

Don't forget if you need to you can freeze cookie dough and pop it in the oven later.

It feels good to be almost done All I have to do is make homemade dog treats with my girls for four people, then put them into the glass jars that I bought (and etched with a "dog paw print" on the front - thanks Pinterest!). I just have to get through my DDs birthday this weekend and I can sit back and relax and enjoy the rest of the holiday season.

I'm still wrapping. That's the biggest chore right now. I'm baking a Christmas cookie a week so I get all the kids' favorites in but I'll bake a lot the weekend before. The kids like Santa to have some options .

It's getting here fast! My kids have less than 2 weeks of school left!

I'm about finished. Picked up the last of what I needed today so I need to get those wrapped and them I will be done with presents.

Teachers goodies are baked and in the freezer. I will do neighbors the weekend before.

Right now I'm focused on DD's class party since I'm room mom and we are taking a last minute trip to Chicago this weekend since DH is there on business. Gotta start thinking about packing for that. I need the days to slow down some.

I'm a little jealous, it's in the 70's here this week. I'm originally from Illinois and Ohio and I sorely miss the snow and cold this time of year.

I know what you mean. Originally from OH and lived in FL for the past 6 years. I missed snow and cold. Well now we are in VA, it gets cold, hopefully it'll snow this year but doubtfully for Xmas. But the coolness feels good.

I just sat down to figure out what I had and what was left to buy, and discovered that the only thing I need to buy is a bike bag. I about fainted.

I understand, I spent 4 years near Tacoma, WA and I will never forget the ONE Christmas that it actually snowed! It didn't stick, but we were excited anyway. Coincidentally, it also snowed in Iraq that year where my DH was stationed, very unusual.

Any gift ideas for DH? He loves video games and computer games. I need something to go with the game I bought him but drawing a blank.

What game did you get him? There are sometimes special edition things you can get to match a game. It would also depend what you'd like to spend, but my DH is a huge gaming nerd and some things I've gotten him in the past are:

A new special edition controller that matched his favorite game--on XBox for Battlefield 3...they have other nifty controllers that aren't specified to one particular game, too.

If he plays online or live games, a good pair of headphones with a mic...Turtle Beach (Beech?) are good noise canceling ones...I don't know what all systems they work with but DH uses them for the XBox and has another set for the computer.

An elaborate mouse for computer games--my DH has a Razer--I'm not sure if this is a brand or what...it's got number keys, a little joystick thing, directional arrows, and other buttons on it that would, I'm assuming, erase the need to use a key board for gameplay...I don't play so I really don't know what all the buttons are for.

All of these were bought through Best Buy--either online or in the store.

Also, DH has some favorite game apparel...tshirts (we have found them at Hot Topic or Spencer's, but just saw a tonnn at our JC Penny's this weekend and they were cheaper than the ones at the other two stores) He also has a sweatshirt that goes to his favorite computer game that he got online. See huge gaming nerd, but pretty easy to buy for! Haha!

Also batteries, batteries, batteries, if he uses a wireless controller!

I'll give it some more thought and see if I can come up with anything else for you...

OMG I need to stop. Made the mistake of going to the mall today (had to hit the Hickory Farms kiosk) and dumb me wandered into Justice & Claire's. My DD is going to think she won the lottery this Christmas! I can't help myself. I love shopping for that kid

I've been so busy with school and finals, but managed to get away last week to pick up most of the stuff I needed:

My youngest sister picked out a purse from AE when they started their black friday special on the wednesday before, and I got her film to go with the camera I got her.

My other sister is getting a pair of orange and navy tights I found on clearance at Urban Outfitters, a nail polish, and a cami with owls on it to go with the necklace she wants me to make her.

My step-brothers will each be getting a $10 gamestop giftcard.

My step-dad is getting a fiesta mug with fuzzy socks(he likes to steal my mom's fuzzy socks, so we've started getting him his own so she'll stop complaining, lol).

My dad's girlfriend will be getting a scarf I found on clearance at Urban Outfitters for Christmas, and I'm going to make her a necklace for her birthday.

My mom is getting a sweatshirt jacket and a nightgown.

My roommate who's name I drew for secret santa wrote on her slip that she wanted lipstick, unless I drew her name- then she wanted me to make her jewelry. Fine by me- I already had the supplies, so that's out of the way!

My best friend is getting a glass owl lamp that was on clearance with halloween stuff at target, a sweater I got on Black Friday, and Naked eye shadow by Urban Decay that I got with a Sephora coupon.

My other friends at home will get to dig around in my jewelry stock and pick out what they want- it's easier for me, since I don't actually have to do any wrapping

I also got a fire pit on black friday to put in the stupid christmas game at my father's- I only paid $30 for it, and I think even that is too much to put into the game (it's supposed to be $75, but I'm not spending $75 on a gift for someone when I'm going to end up with some household items not useful to a college student who doesn't own a house ).

All that's left is to buy my dad a Cracker Barrell gift card, and to make my sister and my dad's girlfriend the jewelry I'm giving them.
