    I shouldn't ask this question as I will probably feel very jealous. LOL

    I am done a pretty good chunk of it. I went to a Partylite party and hardly anyone showed up. The hostess (whom I did not know) had planned on a LOT of people going and she had this penny raffle with a lot of different things. Well I walked away with about $800 in candles and candle holders, vases, etc. and I spent $60 total. :rofl: The lady was pissed as she lost out on a lot of money, but whatever, I got a lot of Christmas presents. :)

    I just need to shop for the men and a few kids gifts.

    I keep saying "that's me done" but then I'll see something else I really like for Hannah and end up buying it!

    I'm done! And wrapped. But only because I don't want to be out in swarms of people once Novemeber hits and people realize they haven't got anything done. And I doubt very much I'll be in any type of mood to drag Meredith with me to the malls in December

    I find the malls here are busy at any time of year. Does anyone work? ROFL!

    It will definitely get that much more worse over the next month.

    Me too, yet I always find something I forgot or need to get. LOL Or my kids - as soon as I am all done their shopping they come up with something they really, really, really want and don't let me forget about. If Santa didn't bring it, Santa would be a bad guy!

    I think I am done for my kids, might need to get them a couple of little bits to bulk it out, their bdays are also 1 and 2 weeks after xmas so have to buy for that aswell, I am going shopping on Sunday to do all the other family members, then that leaves hubby which will be done by mid November, also his bday in November and I just have a couple of things to get for that which I think I will do online very soon.

    Im aiming to get them all wrapped by beginning of December when decs go up, then in December I want to do lots of cooking cakes etc with the kids and really get into the festive mood :happydance: I cant wait
