I’m most excited to give my son, who just turned 5, his ‘Santa’ gift this year. He was looking in a Toys R Us add on Black Friday and saw a power wheels Jeep that he has been talking about ever since. I told him he probably wouldn’t be getting one since Santa brought him a power wheels 4-wheeler last year. So he didn’t even ask Santa for one when he saw him (he only asked for a bow and arrow set that my mom is getting him for his Santa present at her house). I couldn’t think of anything else to get him though, so a couple weeks ago I decided to go ahead and get him the Jeep. He told me the other day that he asked God for a Jeep for Christmas. I told him that God doesn’t give us stuff like that and he said “I know, but God will tell Santa for me”. Darling Husband is taking it to work with him tonight where he will put it together and then bring it home when he gets off and put it in front of the tree. I can’t wait to see my son’s face tomorrow morning. πŸ™‚

I did so good this year! im excited.

I got my mom a columbia coat. She has been wanting one. the special thing about it though is that its got the breast cancer ribbon on the arm (its a white coat). My godmother just passed from breast cancer in september, that was my moms very very best friend. So it’s extra special.

I got my stepdad this awesome necklace from guess. He loves man jewelry lol

My sister got a guess wallet and a mac gift card.

my little sister got some bath and body works stuff and ugg boots she wanted

My son got a new xbox game, jordans, a new xbox controller, jenga, yahtzee, a hawks jersey, a hawks hoodie, and some other stuff for his stocking

Darling Husband got a new amp for his guitar πŸ™‚ (super excited about that)

My grandma is getting gold earrings she wanted.

My aunt is getting a tablet (she’s always jacking my sons kindle! lol)

My dad and my stepmom are getting chicago bears jackets (his and hers)

IM EXCITED ABOUT IT ALL!!!! I can’t wait. This is the first year I was really able to take my time and get good gifts that everyone will really like.

My FI’s birthday is two days after Christmas and I know he has no idea what I got him for it. I’m really excited about that gift since it’s something he won’t be expecting, but will be really excited to get.

I bought my mom her first ever designer purse this year and I am SO PUMPED to see her face when she opens it. She always makes sure that she takes care of her family and never treats herself to anything, ever, but has always wanted to own a Coach bag. I got her a super cute maroon leather bag, wallet and gloves and I know she is going to feel like the most stylish lady on the block. I can’t wait!

ETA: Also my Father-In-Law had shoulder surgery last year and is always complaining of neck and shoulder pain when sitting more than 10 minutes at a time. Darling Husband and I got him a wonderful heated shoulder, neck massager that I know he will love. I can see him now sitting propped up in his recliner and feeling a bit pampered.



Lastly, Dh has been wanting the PS4 gaming console and I told him it was too expensive at over $400 for the console alone. Little does he know, he has a wrapped one under the tree with a $200 Gamestop giftcard so that he can go berserk and get whatever games or accessories that he wants.

@tropicalfish914:  hopefully I don’t sound stalkery, but I think I remember one of your previous posts about the tickets…how did you finally decide to wrap/give them!? !!! πŸ™‚


I am most excited for my SO’s gift; he loves Breaking Bad (we both do), and he occasionally smokes pipe tobacco and likes nice smoking items, so I got him this AWESOME handcrafted Walter White pipe. I ordered it from Macedonia. I’ve had it for a month now and I can’t handle how excited I am about it!!

A couple friends of ours have been going through a hard time, their 5 month old baby has neuroblastoma cancer. πŸ™ For Christmas, Darling Husband and I got them both trips to the spa for a massage, as a way to relax and destress from the tribulations they’ve had of late. πŸ˜€ I hope they like it!

Darling Husband kept saying he wanted nothing for Christmas and I was tempted to give him his wish.  


He wants car parts for his collector car so this is what he is getting.

@phoebephoebo:  Haha! I hope she does someday! I am really proud of it, but I know she is only 2. It started out as fun, but turned in to a real labor of love. I have tried to make her one each Christmas since she was born in October of 2011. This one is definitely my biggest and proudest accomplishment. I may switch to sweaters. I can’t do this forever. Lol.

@MrsBuesleBee:  My gift was the blanket I have been knitting for seven months on my lunch break for my daughter! I feel your pain and excitement! I finished the morning and didn’t know if I should laugh or cry! Lol. Here is a picture before I wove in my ends.
