Color Me Relieved

I have officially finished my Christmas shopping and this brings me great joy. Of course I am aware that Christmas is not supposed to be about spending great sums of cash and obsessing over the newest and most wanted retail items. I dig the people who bake their gifts or make their gifts...you know who you are and I think you are swell! My people (especially those I birthed) want the retail items and this time of year is the one time I don't want to say no. Check it out...

For Kick Back Dude and Princess Diva a night on the town sans kids (yes, free babysitting is included in this package

For Secret Agent Man, the gift that keeps on giving. It was time for his license to be restored to him. That cost a bit of dough...and the down payment on auto insurance was included.

For Social Animal, who always steals everyone else's DVD players, one of his very own.

For Girlie Girl, the status of being among the first of her la-di-dah friends to possess the Sidekick LX. Yikes.

Handsome Lad had better not lose his very own fabulous iPod Nano. I believe there is a small family pool with loss / breakage dates though....

Fortunately my granddaughters are still tiny and sweet and don't know they need things that cost the big bones.

Miss Personality will be pleased with her role playing toys, such as this My First Purse!

And lastly, young Love Bug just wants things to grab and put into her mouth.

And that, my friends, is that!

Gift giving is fun. I'll be handing out gifts on my site on Wednesday.

You have done a lot more shopping than I have. I took care of the girlfriend's primary gift, but now have to find a few small cutesy things for her. "You are a better man (wo) than I"

Wow. That seems like enough. I haven't even started. Maybe this week.

MrManuel: What a fun idea! I am really looking forward to seeing what everyone gets.

Evil-E: Hey, you got the most important thing done. Now it's all downhill.

Viki: Is your husband hard to shop for? Seems like most of them are...

Churlita: Well, it's either this week or Christmas Eve. I have been known to do some Christmas eve shopping myself.
