Christmas Shopping Carnival

Family...avert your eyes...don't be a party pooper!!

There are only 6 weeks left until Christmas. There are so many things going on until then, that I can use all the help I can get. Yes, I have some of my shopping done. I am doing as much online as I can, because I don't have time to run from store to store. So really, I have 3 weeks! Plus, in that time we have dance, school, work and a long lost friend in town from Thailand. Can we say excitement!! Woohooo!!!!

So, in the spirit of giving, Melanie over at Don't Try This at Home is hosting a Christmas Shopping Carnival. I am so excited about this that I have been making lists of everything I am searching for, where I am getting it and other ideas I have had. Let's get this show on the road!
Each of my kids is getting books, they love books! They love reading, which makes me so happy, since I am a book addict myself. So, Hunter is getting this one, and Boo this one...and I am sure so much more since we have a book sale here and work today and the book fair at school this week too.
Plus, each will get a game for the Wii, there are so many to choose from I haven't decided yet. But, they each have wish lists, that include this and this. We shall see...
Webkinz have been brought up by Boo, but we shall see. What she has been begging me for for months is this CD...and no one better tell her it is on top of the fridge out of her sight! Hunter has begged for this one ever since the first song came out. Easy enough little man!
Clothes are always on the list. PJ's are a tradition I started when I first met Hunter, and it has continued with Boo. They love the winter fleece they get, and it is so warm in the cold barons of MN.
Remember me talking about the Target lists, well this is a favorite of mine that is on Hunter's list. If family doesn't buy them, I am going too. There is a favorite for Boo too, especially since she is my crafty girl. This is the coolest things ever! I am so excited about it. She loves to draw, so this will be a good one for her.
I spend a lot of time trying to find the perfect gift for people. There are a couple I have found on Ebay, and they shall remain with me since I know certain people will read to find out what they are getting. But, Little Man nephew is getting some toys, that is for sure. Waiting for confirmation from my Brother, but the favorite leading the pack is this one. It is so fun! And he will have a blast banging away!
There are photo calendars and personalized picture frames from Personal Creations on their way, and even some fabulous things from Lakeside Collection. I love online shopping!!
Be sure to check out the list of everyone who has joined in the fun for this Christmas Shopping Carnival over at Don't Try this at Home!
