Haven't really thought about it. Neely and I don't usually exchange gifts at Christmas. We just buy ourselves something nice when we get income tax returns. We don't spend a lot of money on Christmas because we end up spending so much on them during the year. Plus we'll be getting a new baby around Christmas when my daughter has her baby, so that's present enough, right?!
I haven't even thought about it yet. The only kids that I already know are my brothers two kids. I've been saving up my mypoints points to get them gift cards. So far I can afford two $25 cards for iTunes and other places.
❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

DH & I also don't exchange presents. The only thing I know for sure so far is that we'll all get new pjs. It's our family tradition to open new pjs on Christmas eve and wear them to bed.
This is probably the last year that dd will believe in Santa - she's 8 so I want to have a nice Christmas for her.
I'm also saving up my points for gift cards. We'll be giving gift cards to Dh's dds again this year. I know that sounds cold but they live 4 hours away. We barely see them, have no idea what they have or what they like. And bio mom doesn't coordinate what she's getting with Dh so..... And it just got too hard trying to figure out what to get them. The 1st 2 years we were together, I got the oldest and Ipod and a TV/DVR combo. She was very unappreciative even though I spent more on her than I did my bio kids. Plus they are 12 & 16 so they'd rather have their own spending money. Dh usually goes shopping with them.
My2Miracles - No, it doesn't sound cold at all. It sounds understandable. It sucks that the eldest wasn't appreciative for those awesome gifts!! I had to get after husband's eldest to say thank you for the gifts she got from people, last year.
SchoolYear - LOL. Yeah, I'm thinking baby's birth will be a good present for most of my family. I was agreeing with Rachel, too, though. Her grandbaby is due a little bit before my baby is due, I believe.
