We finally went out and shopped for the kids' Christmas gifts. We totally spent way more than we expected to and got more than we wanted to, but when you have 3 little ones so close in age, I think that it seems like you got too much when in reality you didn't go too over board. I am so happy that we gave in and bought Elmo Live for Michael. I think that he is really going to go crazy when he hears Elmo talk to him. We got Thomas big lego type blocks with a wagon to cart them around in. Little miss Eva Rose got her first doll and carriage. I was so excited that I found a doll carriage for her age group. All the ones that I saw were for 2+ or 3+ years and since she will be 1 a month after Christmas, those just didn't work. I can't wait for Christmas. Even though I know that the kids probably have little to no clue about Christmas and presents, I think that they are going to enjoy at least some of their gifts, or at least I hope so.
Stil need to get the nieces and nephews their gift, but otherwise we are done! Tom and I have decided not to exchange gifts this year. We decided to save money and space. There really is nothing we need, and I would much rather buy for the kids in the family than get something stupid for each other. I would like to do something small for Tom though. Any ideas out there for something that doesn't cost anything yet means a lot to someone you love?????
Oh, and I did get things for some of the adults, just not store bought. I hope they like them!
