Horribly! I have so much crocheting to do to finish the little vests I'm planning to make for the little kids, I'm planning to order picture books from somewhere for the adults in the family, and I have NO IDEA what I'm getting my older nieces and nephews. We usually spend more than we should, because we are the "out-of-town" aunt and uncle, so we like to spoil them a little. Now that we have our own kid, though, and I am not working, things are financially very different!

we're thinking of doing a picture book of all the kids for my parents for Christmas... kind of gift that keeps on giving

Hehe I remember our 'out of town' aunt & uncle - we used to LOVVVVVVVE getting their presents, because they lived in a big city with awesome shops!

Aw, .

I'm trying to figure out what we will be doing for Christmas... we usually have some sort of travel to look forward to, but we might be on our own this year!

Aw I'm sorry Ashley (((big hugs)))... hoildays do lose a bit of meaning when you have lost someone close to you...

Gaby is going to see Lion King 3D today with her friend for her birthday - then she's going to her friends Nana's for dinner.. she's going to be one cranky kid tonight, once the b/day party buzz wears off!

I am stoked for the holidays. All of my ordering that needed to be done is done. I'm going back to the states December 7-22, and I'm SUPER excited. It's really close now, and I can't wait.

I had a big amount of frustration trying to order a kitchen for DD for Christmas/birthday. I wanted a wooden one, which makes it heavy, and I couldn't find anyplace that would ship for less than $100. I finally had a friend find a website for me that offered a $12.95 flat rate shipping to Alaska, and this is the kitchen Chy is getting. Colton isn't getting nearly as cool of presents this year, lol. But he is getting a birthday party and Chy isn't.

Very cool!

I am working on finishing up my photo book now... Walmart has a deal "buy a 8x11 book, get a 5x7 book free." I'm planning to buy the 8 x 11's for Jenny's grandparents, then to use the freebies for her aunties and uncles .

I'm now the president of the MOMS club that we're in... at least until we have baby #2 in June! Other than that, nothing too exciting going on over here...

It's going okay... I'm past most of the icky fatigue, although I'm still more tired than usual. I'm almost 11 1/2 weeks now, and my morning sickness is getting WORSE, not better. I hope it's just flaring up before it disappears!!!
