What's on your list?

This was our Christmas wish list board at school. The snowballs are the wish lists of the children. Lots of I pods, DS's, American Girl dolls, Legos and Star Wars, and two wanted a real bunny. (The gloves and bow I took out of Lost and Found, hah)

Okay what is on your list.......what are you buying this year for others. Hmmmmm, on my list is an
American Girl , legos, Playmobile, play dishes, doll beds, giraffe teether, lots of 31 gifts, books, gift certificates, candles, craft kits, clothes, dog bones and dog toys. It is fun to shop for others esp. the little ones.
Now wrapping is another story. So far nothing has been wrapped yet. Cards are still sitting undone. But there are only 3 more work days left for me. It'll happen, probably later than sooner.
We have lots of snow on the ground and BABY it is cold outside. The grandkids and the kids at school are getting so excited. They talk about their travels to see their families and about the presents they hope to receive. Tree trimming is high on their list just like making cookies to share. Hopefully the little ones will remember that it is Jesus' birthday that we are celebrating. It truly is a magical time. Every year there are new memories. So much work goes into planning for that one day, or in many cases, several days of hugging, laughing and exchanging. Most of us are exhausted by December 25 but isn't it all worth it......the smiles and the love that we have for our families.

Hi Debby,
I try and make most of my gifts buying only clothing. I made felted ornaments again this year. The packaging is part of the gift so I really like to make a tag or something special for that. This year I found fabric boxes on a blog I read by Sandi Henderson. Oh my they are lovely and very reasonable, cost more to ship to me than the boxes however. My grandkids are grown up so don't require lots of gifts anymore. My one grandson was wanting things for his dorm in the Fall.

I hope to be done with all my shopping and wrapping this evening. I have two gifts that I still need to make (Yikes)and then I can focus on my holiday baking.

Stay warm! La

It's fun to see the kids wish list.
I have lots to do still too, but you're right. It's all worth it. :)
