    CandyMouse:flower3: Thank you so much!! i haven't been as active on the thread as I have been every other year~I am working at our business more this year and time gets away!!! But I appreciate all of you who are so busy chatting and keeping it going!! I can't believe we are less than a week out!!! Every year I end up needing ONE more gift and of course, I will be out today looking for it! LOL!! 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. Hope all your kiddos are ready for the break and you all have safe travels....I know several of y'all will be hitting the road today or tomorrow!

    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.
