sort of. i've got a list going on amazon and put in an order here and there when we have a few extra bucks. dh and i really like our day out to get it all though. the kids will be at school. we even get a special lunch without the kids. we don't get to have dates very often so that one day is great for us.
I usually don't start this early, but I found something for my oldest son at a really good price a few weeks ago online and ordered it. So I guess that counts as starting.
I hate this time of the year because my 2 nephews, my niece, my dad, and my youngest son have Oct birthdays. A nephew has a Nov birthday. Then my MIL's birthday is in early Dec birthday and my oldest son't birthday is a few days before Christmas. So I feel like I do all of my present buying this time of the year.
