No lines. No wrestling two, cranky, small people. No traffic. No need to even get dressed (though, I did. No, really, I did. Haha!). No spending way too much time out and about, and then getting dinner started late. What's not to love?
I'm not done but I am pleased with how much I was able to check off the list. Ash's list is almost done. **thrilled**
I love those blogs that list all the great deals going on. I just checked out a couple today and found out some stores are offering free shipping. Eddie Bauer and Lands End have no minimum right now. JCPenney is free after spend $69. Brookstone is free after $35. To name a few.
Wanna see what I got? I'll only share a couple of things I got for the girls, since Tony does randomly read this blog. Sorry about the blurry pics.
Thank you Pottery Barn for having such nice, clear photos! It's Baby's first Christmas, but I decided to just get her a normal stocking. I think it's rather meaningful since Britt's got kitty-cat eyes.
I just love that they are bringing back the vintage Fisher Price stuff! They must have been paying attention to how much people pay for it on Ebay! Heehee!
A mini guitar. She loooooooooooooooves the guitar that one of her teacher's at Signing Time Class plays. Sometimes she's allowed to pluck the strings. I know she's rather young, but maybe this will encourage me to pull my guitar out of storage and show her how it's done. **snort**
I got the white one. I'm kinda wondering if I should have gone with pink. **shrug** Oh well. Ash needs one of these since I'm getting rid of the cheapo table and chair set we've been making do with for a while now. It's taking up too much space.
And I didn't pay for ANY shipping! The girls are getting a lot of musical instruments this year. I didn't mean for that to be the recurring theme. It just happened. I already picked up a little drum for Britt several months ago and then last week I found a bunch of fun little noise making toys to go in stockings. Woohoo! So, tell me. Where are you at with your holiday shopping? Or are you making gifts? I think I will be making some too. I've got a couple ideas. If I actually follow through, I certainly share. :)
