Missing something?


So how is everyone doing with their Christmas shopping? Missing anything from your wallets? Like, oh, I don't heehee
Ah yes, tis the season to forego the bills and spend, spend, spend for all of your loved ones. Then hope for mercy from the utility companies to waive the late fees because, "Hey, it's the holidays".
I think this year we are all trying our best to conserve with the whole recession thingy. Sometimes it doesn't help to find that the cost of things are higher anyway. So we end up spending just as much, but bringing home less from the stores. We have done pretty well so far for the kids' this year. I would tell you all what we got but then if certain little eyeballs see this post then I will be in a bit of trouble. Just a few more days and I can reveal. But I can tell you...those of you who DO know what it is already know this...we have tried it out first to give it a trial run and we have come to the conclusion that we approve. That's all I'm saying.
I suppose I'm not the only one running around trying to get all the things done that need to be done for this one day. Multiple trips to the grocery store, making sure to have enough to eat for everyone. This year I have decided to do something different. We are definitely sick of turkey from Thanksgiving and we will have our fill of ham. So I am going to be bold this year and make lasagne. Never have done that before. Why not?
Well, I hope you all get your shopping done and save a little too this year. I gotta go make out my grocery list. I'll be spending more tomorrow.

Christmas lasagna?? Um..Thanks for inviting me to New Year's and not Christmas. :)

Check out the deal I got yesterday. We had bought Dippy his 'thing' at Toys R Us on sale from $99 to $79, so I was already happy about that. We went to BJ's last night and found the EXACT same thing for $49!! We bought it there and took it back to Toys R Us. I saved another THIRTY BUCKS! Not to mention that I had planned $100 for his 'thing' and got it for half price!
