Well, I did it. It is Dec. 1, and I am officially done with Christmas shopping for the kids. I stuck to my plan and got them 1 joint gift from Santa and 3 individual gifts--one from Santa and two from us. There will be no avalanche of gifts under the tree, but that's ok because they have grandparents, and that's what they provide.
We need to finish up the napkins for the g-parents, and I need to type up the menu/invitation for the Christmas Brunch and get a *$ card for g-father, then I am DONE!!
Now I can focus on shopping for the brunch and soup exchange.
ps. All this advance preparation means that my school projects are languishing until the last minute. C'est la vie!
