As of this past Sunday, we are done with our Christmas shopping for the boys. From what I hear, Sweet Hubby is done for me, and as soon as he gets paid again, I'll be done with him. And then, we'll be done!

We failed miserably this year in our attempt to only get 3 gifts per child. But the good news is that I still stayed within our budget. I got some really good deals and they each got a couple of books and workbooks and such. They won't be excited about those come Christmas morning, but they're something the kids will enjoy later on. We got the "biggies" that we intended for the kids....Zachary got the Batman Imaginext Batcave, Marc-Adam got the little grocery cart (although, that really can't count as a biggie, but I think it was the most expensive thing we got him) and Stephen got some new wheels. I had intended to get him a Razor scooter, but he told me that he wanted a new bike instead (the $29 blitz ad bike at Wal*mart!). The bike I got him looks huge, and I'm really dreading Christmas morning when he gets on it and I realize that it's just the right size for him.

Everything else they got were little things...a magic kit, play-doh, clearance action figures, fancy-schmancy coloring books. I think Christmas morning is going to be a lot of fun.

It sounds like Christmas morning is going to be very fun at your house. =)

Wow! I am so impressed; I've still got quite a few left on my list. Now I've just got to find the time to go shopping without any children.
