I have one more gift to buy and I am all done. I am going to pick it up tonight. It is a blanket for DH's Grandmother. She just got placed in an assist living home over the weekend so I wanted to get her a nice warm soft blanket to cuddle up with.

I know what i need~it's for my mom,but I just have to go get it...our traffic has gotten ridiculous around our mall/shopping areas.

Glad my shopping is done. Wrapping almost finished. Since we live away from family, the boxes from everyone starting arriving. I started baking this past weekend. I made Peanut Butter Cup Cookies, Snickerdoodles, Chocolate Crinkles, and Cookie Press Spritz Cookies. This weekend I'll be baking chocolate chip, peanut butter chip, sugar cookie cutouts and peanut butter kiss cookies, plus chocolate and pumpkin pies. I love to bake and we are going to friends house after church on Christmas Eve so that will be nice.

Now for presents, we got for our DD4 (includes Santa gifts)

Doc Mcstuffins Toys, time for your checkup doll, doctor bag, puzzles, plush and 2 T-Shirts, DOC DVD.
Unicorn Dream Lite
Merida Animator Doll, Brave DVD
Don't Break the Ice Game.
Assorted Puzzles
Books
Clothes

My MIL got her a crayola easel with all the markers crayons, books etc...

I don't know what my mother got her.

For my DS2

NY Giants Dream Lite
Play Work Bench
Wooden Train Table
Jake and the Neverland Pirates DVD
Clothes
Books
Hot Wheels Cars
Bowling Set

MIL got him a big Lego Duplo Set.

My DD is speech delayed, and my DS is delayed in more than one area. He doesn't walk on his own so getting him toys which he has to stand and play with was important.

DH and I aren't exchanging gifts since our budget went to get our cat surgery to save his life. So when the tax returns comes next year I'll get my nook (which I've wanting for 2 years now), and DH will get his model airbrush set.

LOL. Bought my first 2 gifts for Cmas 2013 today. Kroger had all the Hallmark stuff 50% off and I bought my best friend's girls the Mickey Countdown ornaments. They both also have early December birthdays and have Cmas trees in their rooms so I always get them an ornament and PJs for their bdays

ETA - guess they really aren't Cmas gifts since I give them for bdays, but it's for that time of year, so it counts

Hello! So I see that there is 137 days until Christmas 🎅. Just wondering if there is a new thread for 2013, I haven't been able to find it on the search engine.
