With Christmas coming, I’m sure many of you are also in last-minute shopping mode.  (Smug people that have things already perfectly planned out need not comment :-D).  In our family, we are not huge Christmas present people, but still when you multiply even a small number times 8, it starts adding up pretty quickly!

Our biggest problem is trying to remember to actually BUY the stuff.  We usually have things planned far in advance – who’s getting what, helping the little kids, etc.  But inevitably there will be 1 or 2 things where, a few days before Christmas, Carolyn and I will ask each other – wait, did we ACTUALLY BUY THAT?!?! 🙂
