i try to get most of it done throughout the year. it is hard though because DH has such a big family so we draw names and that doesnt usually happen until october. my family has also started drawing names and the name drawing doesnt even happnen until thanksgiving. blah. so i would like to have been done by now but it doesnt look that way. i am about half way done. i need to start shopping for ashton.

We usually do the kids in a day the middle of December.... good excuse to get a baby sitter!!!

I have begun thinking of inlaws and parents...

Have no clue yet.

Here in holland they have Sinter Klaus(sp?) on 5 December, I have started shopping for that but, not for Santa yet other than the kids and for each other we only shop for Dh mom and my mom. So i have to get cracking but, we also do shopping for santa around the middle of december. I think this year we are going shopping in Germany, They have a Walmart lol and a toysrus right nextdoor almost. I never knew how much you can miss wallyworld lol!!!

I really have only gotten a few things here and there. I usually start mid November and hopefully am done by mid December. Of course, we do one big shopping day for the kids. Drop them off at my parents for the day and we haul butt through the toy stores!

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

No, we haven't started buying at all. Probably won't for awhile either. I plan on making a majority of the gifts!

Cookies and chocolate spoons with mugs and hot chocolate packets. I also home make all our cards and we give away family portraits. I am also considering making ornaments for the family trees!! That one is still up in the air though!

Also, depending if we can find out the sex of the baby before Christmas, I may give my parents a note from the doctor with the sex of the baby on it. Not too sure though .... last time we didn't have a lot of luck until I was about 8 or so months, LOL!

For more homemade ideas - check out the Holidays and Entertaining board! There are TONS there!

We have not done any shopping for the girls, but I have picked up about half of the supplies for the gifts I am making. I decided to do just hot chocolate and chocolate dipped spoons. I really don't have time or the room to make anything else.

Man! You're good!

I've barely started. I bought one thing for my nephew and have some ideas for a couple of other people, and that's it.

I usually go in the middle of november, that way it's not that busy yet, and everything is still available. I know exactly what I want to get the girls, so it's just a matter of picking it up. We draw names on both sides, and we do family gifts for nieces and nephews, so I don't have tons of shopping to do. I have a little bit done, but my big trip is coming right up.

Done with most of it. For DH fam, who are coming this weekend, we are going to go ahead and give them their gifts to either open now, or take home and wait until Christmas. We don't plan on making a trip to see them anytime around the 25th---I'll be too huge to sit in a car for a two-hour trip! All we have left is some little gifts and two big things.

Amost all done. I still have to get my husband and inlaws, but that's mostly online stuff I just have to get to.

And my family picks an adult name on Thanksgiving, so I have no idea who I'm buying for there.

Aside from scotch tape, I could put together Christmas on what I have in the house.
