hazy...I did not like spending that much money but finally said WTF. Well, havn't spent the money yet. But it has to be paid off by June.

We traded up to new furniture to give our existing stuff to our daughter. She will need bedroom furniture shortly to replace the very old furniture we used for her baby room.

Not counting stuff I bought for myself I'd say not much that's why I gotta get out there and buy stuff! Parents want to go after christmas and get whatever that's about a couple $100's then we do $65 exchange w/ one familiar member buy for my nephew about $100, $50 girls exchange and always little somethings here and there about $300 so geez not that much at all.
That's not counting food and and entertaining which is about another $300. Oh Ryan gets a few toys, maybe $100 worth. I mean what do you get a 2 1/2 old year that just wants to play w/ cars!

Too much <_<

My sister and I are the only siblings that still buy for each other in my family. I gave my sister her Chrismtas sweater, that she has been saying she has always wanted, early so she could wear it before or on Christmas and the ungrateful person she is, she took it back already. Next year I won't be buying her anything!

Bah Humbug!

It's what my wife has already spent on the family for Christmas and I don't want to know... lol
P-29 is probably thinking the same thing. In all honesty I really did not do to bad this year. In previous years, I have always started X-Mas shopping way before Thanksgiving and this year I did not. It seems that with less time to shop I spent half of what I normally spend. I hope no one is disappointed.
