Woo-hoo! I'm finished!!!!!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I'm finished with my Christmas shopping!!

I left Bill watching the Sunday morning news shows and slipped out to K-Mart. It wasn't too busy, at 10:30 a.m. and I got Bill a Crown Royal gift pack, with two cut-crystal tumblers. He can have his holiday nip in style!

They had the cutest red velvet baby shoes but, they only went up to 3 mos. Shoot! Those would have looked gorgeous with the dresses that I bought for the twins. I would have bought the patent-leather Mary Janes, if I knew what size they wear. I settled for fancy socks, with ribbons and lace. Baby clothes are easy - they're sized by weight but shoes I'm not sure about. Bill says that he's going to warn Mark and Sam about my shoe "problem" - he's afraid that I'll pass it on to Fizzy and Izzy. SOMEBODY has to teach them about shoes - Sam wore Doc Martens with her Renaissance wedding dress.

The outside lights are up and working. Next week, the carpet gets shampooed and as soon as its dry - the tree goes up. Is anybody else ready for Christmas, yet?

I'm probably a good 75% done buying presents. Have I mentioned how much I love Amazon.com? And everything that I've bought is already wrapped. Just a bit more to go.

Oh katl8e, I had forgotten about your shoe "fetish". I think that it is your duty as a caring, loving, grandma to pass on your knowledge and interests to those girls. The socks sound lovely for babies, but I think that a tradition of "shoes from grandma" would be a lovely one to start... birthdays, christmas, easter, valentines day.....

I'm not really doing any shopping this year. Too tight with no job. But I have my tree up and 75% of my outdoor lights! I need to start baking soon. I always make a variety of baked goods and snacks and then take them around to each of my neighbors on Christmas Eve.

I usually start decorating and shopping two weeks before Christmas. It's not because I am busy but I have to get into the mood. Weird huh?

Emmett may surprise you... I know Spike surprised me his first Christmas season. He didn't even go near the tree, much to my delight.

Woohoo! It IS nice to be done with the season's shopping. No presents exchange this year, so no shopping for us. No tree, but I have the wreath, and decorated swags over the doorways, and will put out an xmas mat. Put out a few decorative candles too. Trying to find a place for my stuffed Santa that won't be his death sentence.

Awwww, "red velvet baby shoes" sound adorable! Too bad the sizes didn't go higher.

I have a few things- but I'm going on my major shopping trip to the city on Thursday. Hubby wants, of all things, a Juicer Just when I think I've got the man figured out...

I'd love to get him The PS2 he wants, but I'm not sure I can swing it this year I'm just finishing off paying my credit card debts from LAST year *sigh* Our sofa decided to crap out last year, and rather than sit on the floor , I decided to get a new set on my credit card.

I'm excited to be finally getting around to my shopping this week- God have mercy on my credit cards!

Bill is difficult to buy for. He doesn't really want or need anything. I get him some NASCAR stuff and a new shirt each year, as well as a bottle of Crown Royal.

He refers to Rowdy and Buddy as "those two criminals" so, I had Kimward make Photoshop mugshots of them. I printed out the pix and put them in a double frame for him. He'll get SUCH a kick out of those!
