I've only gotten to the list stage. I do have a few gifts that I knew would be hard to get, but nothing else. The rest I just go out, list in one hand, cash in the other. I don't come home until it's done. Kind of a search & destroy shopping mission. For food, others shop, I just bring knives and cook!

We only bought a few presents for the kids but I still need to wrap them. Glad to say I finished my xmas cards this morning and sent them out just in time. I need to get my grocery shopping list together tonight, we'll be doing that tomorrow. I was planning on cooking most of the weekend but dh put in for overtime on Saturday, so with the havoc the kids make, I won't be cooking much that day. Gotta buy a tree tomorrow too. Goodness, I'm gonna have a lot to do in town tomorrow.

I have a few minute last things to do, but nothing I can't handle.
