I love Christmas for so many reasons, but my favorite part is shopping and buying gifts for my friends and family. I'm already a shopaholic, and I already like to give, but Christmas is a great excuse to put both together. I usually overspend, and overbuy, and this year is no different. Starting my shopping early just means that I will buy twice as much and find more than one "perfect gift" for each person. I did some unique gift buying on One Kings Lane website this year, and I was blown away when they sent me a gift when my packages arrived! If you haven't checked them out yet, do it now, even if you're just window shopping! Another great personal gift I found is here, love this and got it for a friend! Of course, all my family is getting pictures of my kiddies, what could be a better gift than that! Every year I have a difficult time shopping for Scott, I even told him that we could forgo getting each other gifts this year, but he didn't go for it, so I'm hoping that I'll figure it out soon. This is what I know he really wants but he would $#*! a brick if I bought it for him! 1 year olds are very hard to buy for, and 3 year olds that have everything are even harder, so I'm just leaving it up to Santa this year ; )
Here are some pictures from Ellie's first time riding her dirt bike. We all had a lot of fun, but she didn't want it to end!
