I totally haven't :lol:

We'll be away for most of December too so unless we get a move on we'll be in trouble or we'll end up having to bring stuff back from Orlando

I have bought lots of 'bits' when i have seen things, and DS's baseball bat has arrived this morning which is a relief as it has been out of stock for months.

Know what you mean about that. Steven has asked Santa for some specific Ben 10 toys and of course they are selling out everywhere. I found a place online that had all 3 in stock luckily. Can't have him losing faith in Santa at age 5. :unsure:

I have bought a book about Chuck Norris 400 Facts about the World's Greatest Human for my BIL. I cracked up when I saw it. It's a long story but it involves a weekend trip of him singing the theme song to Walker, Texas Ranger.

I also bought my sister a very cute Kermit tshirt at Disney. It was $30 but marked down to $10 at the Muppets shop in MGM.

That's all I've done.....

I've bought one Pandora bead for Poppy and that's all. Maisie's list for Santa is made up of 11 A4 sheets of paper taped end to end! When I mentioned she probably won't get everything on the list she looked at me like I had two heads!

Because you need all your spare money to buy crayons.

I've purchased things as I've seen them. I now have to collect them all up and sort through and see who is getting what! That's the biggest job. :yes:

I'm done! :D

But I only had to buy for two little ones. :lol:

Eric is three, and I bought him a huge bucket of Lego duplo blocks for toddlers. The bucket lid can be used as a base for building. :thumbs_up: And I'm making him two pairs of shorts and two shirts for next spring/summer. Kelly (his mom) says they will be his "casual dressy" outfits for the season. :)

Abi will be 14 months old just after Christmas. I asked Deb (her mom) what she could use most. She specified sizes, so she's getting a large box of diapers and I'm making her two outfits that she'll be able to wear next spring (think March) through summer (think September). I'll probably pick up a small toy to use as a package tie on the diapers, just so she has something to play with. As if she doesn't already have a gazillion toys! :lol:

I have got a few bits and pieces. I save all year for High Street vouchers and am waiting for them to come. That will cover most of it :)

I make my own cards and haven't started yet - need to get a move on!
