25 Days of Christmas--Day Eighteen

Here we are at Day 18 of the 25 Days of Giveaways, hosted by Jill Savage! I have to admit, I wasn't sure I'd be able to keep up with the posts (and I have missed a couple of days and made them up late), but it's been fun reflecting on the season so far. I do hope to put up a "regular" post one of these days--the girls have been up to all kinds of craziness and cuteness--but for now, here's Day 18: Who does the Christmas shopping in your family? I do! I keep Mr. B informed as I go, and I ask for his input on pretty much everything (even though he usually has little to no input to offer). I really hate going out into the crowds, so I try to shop online as much as possible. As I alluded to in this post, I even buy several small gifts for Mr. B to have the girls give me for Christmas. It sounds a little rotten or selfish, but it really makes life easier for everyone--it spares us time, money, and stress! Does anyone else out there shop for themselves? Who does the Christmas shopping in your families??


  1. Well, as I understand it, your father bought that black stereo in his kitchen for his girls to give to him on Christmas!  I don't know if that's true but that's what I heard.

  2. :) This might be the first year I HAVEN'T bought something for me, wrapped it and put it under the tree... :) and I do ALL the shopping because I learned early on that my husband just wants to look at things he thinks are cool toys - like remote controlled dinosaurs, rather than princess and doll toys.

  3. I don't think I've ever actually purchased something for myself, but several years (since we've been married) now, I've pretty much figured out everything Jeff was giving me. He's a little obvious, I guess. But this year, I actually have no clue! :)

    However- I DID buy a few things for Jeff and me that I wrapped and wrote "from Santa" (lol)... 2 things we need and one thing I thought would be fun for us to have. :)
