I have been talking about Christmas for weeks with my family. I asked the kids to make a list of thinks they might want from us. I told them they would be getting three things off the list and of course something from Santa. I also found something cute and small for their stockings. That means 5 gifts per child and of course candy for the stockings.
Christmas isn't about HOW MANY PRESENTS CAN WE BUY AND GO IN DEBT. Really it isn't. I know we have been brought up this way. It doesn't have to be that way.
I am guessing there will be two gifts per parent as well. I picked up something for the kids to give Superdad and then I will buy him a gift. I also picked up something they can give me from him. LOL
We have everything we could ever hope for. Each other. :) The rest is just gravy as they say.
What are your Christmas plans? What do you think about all this BUY BUY MUST BUY MORE attitude?
I wanted to mention something about my kids making their list. As mentioned before I said we would get three things off their list. I want to add that my kids just didn't think of the most expensive things they could put on the list.
They put things like posters for my room and trading cards.
I love my kids. They are great!
