I went shopping a little bit this morning. I started early while everyone else were still in church, being the heathen that I am. While I don't enjoy being up early on a Sunday, I really don't enjoy holiday crowds.
I am finished shopping for the littles. It is nearly impossible to find something that isn't violent, computer based, or commercial. I finally found two Fisher Price dinosaur sets for the boy littles. I caved a little bit on girl little and bought a Polly Pocket set.
Now I have two nine-year-olds and one eight-year-old to shop for. Again, the struggle to get them actual toys instead of what's on the shelves. I think I'm going to go to the book store for the two eldest.
Shopping for my mom is easy. She requested the new Susan Boyle CD. (I know...sigh...) I am repeating last years present: a pretty box, the cd, a picture of us, cozy socks, and some Lindt candy. It's my favorite kind of gift to give: lots of little fun things together.
I also discovered that I ordered the wrong book for Kevin. Gah! Especially since the wrong one is already here and I already ordered the dvd's he wanted. Oh and it's three times more expensive. So, fun.
Now I just have to buy for my brothers and the bigs then I'm finished. I have to wait until I go on vacation the week before Christmas so that will be interesting. At least it gives me a few weeks to think about it.
I'm not complaining though. I am lucky to have such problems: having to buy presents for my family and the ability to buy them.
How are you doing with your gifts? anything fun or creative?
