I try every year to prepare for the holidays. I have four children and many nieces and nephews to buy for and enjoy giving. But I do believe I am getting worse at planning for the holiday gift season. When my kids were younger I started to meet with my siblings and in-laws and collect the lists! Find out sizes, action figure favorites and whether or not they had the latest Madden game. I think I peaked way to early, may be I was an early achiever? Trying to be the best Aunt and Mom, creative and practical all in the same package. My kids are now 12 and up to 21 years old. They are too specific and taking all of the fun out of it. I am not a Scrooge, just wondering if I should start combing the weekend ads and cutting coupons or just chill?
Merry Holidays to all and a super fun year to everyone!
