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?
I have done it that way a few times for the same reason, waiting for the money to come in.
This year I only have to buy a couple of small things for my son and then I am done.
