I see all these christmas posts about holiday shopping.

anyone else not doing any this year?

we had an unexpected trip come up where we have to take ds to a pediatric urologist. so our christmas money is going to that trip.

i did get two home depot tool belts and im going to decorate them for the kids to use. they were $.77 each and im.using our craft stuff to cut out letters for their names.

    Yep. I dont do christmas really.

    No reason to.


    I hope your kiddo is okay! Its ok its about the meaning of christmas, not the presents. (as much as others will disagree)

    We have a tree and thats why i literally took change to buy the little tool belts. Ds can use itfor his little cars and whatnot and dd for her hair stuff when she plays beauty salon. i cant spend what we have saved because i dont know exactly what this trip is going to cost.

    We aren't doing extravagant, but we are getting some clothes for the kids, maybe a book or two, and one toy apiece. They have too many toys already. -__-
