stocking No Shopping Done Yet

With Christmas still a week away I must confess to having done NOTHING for gifting yet this year. We frequently find ourselves in this position. When the kids were younger it was because we were broke until the final payday before Christmas.

We're still broke but our reasons for not getting it done have more to do with time than anything else.

Usually we'll make a list and Sandy will go one way and I'll go another and we'll knock out Christmas for all seven kids in a couple of hours (we don't do a ton). We have learned that as they have grown up the boxes their stuff comes in gets smaller and the price tag goes up.

This weekend we'll do it all again -- the gifts, the food, the jammies -- everything.

Think we can get it done?
