Christmas Presents

So have any of you started Christmas shopping? I am horrible about this. Every year, I start thinking and planning close to Halloween. Then I hit a wall. I never actually go and purchase anything. This year I am actually a little bit ahead. When Chris and I were in Soap Lake we bought a couple of presents at garage sales. I think I have my mom all taken care of.

Then I run into the problem that Ariana's birthday is the end of November and Hayes's birthday is the beginning of December. So I have to buy double the presents for the two of them. Ariana is fairly easy and I actually have a couple things for her. Hayes on the other hand, I have absolutely no clue. I have never bought for a baby before. It kind of sounds crazy that I have no clue what to buy for my own son. He doesn't really need anything. I kind of thought about not getting him anything, because I know he will get so much from other people, but that just sounds horrible!

Maybe I am way over thinking it.

What do you guys think? What should I buy my own soon to be one year old son? Oh and for the record, I didn't get him anything last year. (And now that I typed it, I am kinda feeling guilty)

I have been stressing so much over Christmas shopping this year. Two of my kids have birthdays in mid November so after parties and presents for those, I just don't have extra until right before Christmas. Uhhh. If only I had unlimited funds. :) I am planning on looking on Craigslist for some of the babies stuff.

Oh my goodness don't feel guilty. We're in the same boat with a December birthday. CArter's one year party will be December 15th and I told my husband I wanted to take some of the gifts he got from the party and put them under the tree for Christmas. He's one. He'll never know or care. I would never do that when they're older, but like you said...what do you get a one year old and how much could a one year old need?? Anyway, that being said, I'm getting Carter this as his "big" Christmas gift:

I'm also getting one of the grandparents to get him this:||NoFacet-_-NoFacet-_-Top_Marketing_Rule-_-

Just some thoughts :)

I think I bought a Christmas present here recently, but I couldn't tell you what it is or where it is. That's how I roll :).

Tori's birthday is 8 days after Christmas.... That really sucks!
