How big of a deal do you make Christmas? Are you one to spends lots and lots of money or do you do a little and spend time together? Are you a homemade gift maker or would you rather buy? Do(es) your child(ren) believe in santa?

Thank you ~* Helen *~ for the best all about me siggie! You are absolutely fabulous!

I love the season, hate what the season has become. It is mostly about shopping. That being said, I came from a poorish family, never had spare money so we have always had homemade gifts. I remember homemade dolls, bunnies, barbie furniture, and those were the best Christmas' ever. This year I am making Savannah a blanket, crocheting, Alex is getting an art kit that I am putting together from odds and ends that I already have. The ILs are getting a candle. If I have to buy things, it will be cheap.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my very cute siggy!

Love the season...the lights the decorations the smell of cookies the shopping! Everything. Mia believes in santa and I do spend a lot! I also make things too. She is my only kid so I can go all out. We were also pretty poorish so we never really had much so I guess I just over do it a lil bit with her!

Well since we are trying to save money I am not spending a lot. $50 pretty much is all I am spending on each kid. They have so much and don't need anything really. I love spending time with the kids and family really.

I LOVE Christmas!!! I seriously LIVE for this season! Not because of the shopping--can't afford much so not much to do, but I love the lights and decorations and sounds and smells of the season! I love watching little kids sit on Santa's lap and their eyes fill with awe..it is truly magical! I do hate how commercialized it has become but I ignore that part of it and focus on family, friends and the reason for the season. My heart fills with joy this time of year!
