i know Christmas is a little while away but I just wanted to make this so people can talk about what they do fr Christmas or any gift ideas or anything about Christmas
With Love, RamBaby
My husband and I have alternated years in buying the presents. The kids always hope it's his year, because he doesn't count the cost like I do. The thing that was great when the kids were little is that every other year, I got to be surprised about their gifts, too.
My mom(and dad) like when my brothers and I make gifts for them or buy them something but we're not sure what to get them(I was thinking something like a necklace for each of them) but what do you think. With Love, RamBaby
It's a very busy time for me both at work and at home. Working in a nursery with two year olds, there is plenty to do, especially with our Christmas Fair next weekend, and preparing for our nativity play the week after that.. Personally, I make greetings cards and have orders for over 140 personalized cards, so I should not be sitting here right now. Hope your plans are going OK for your Christmas.

Hi Rambaby. Great thread. I always love learning what others do around the holidays too. As for what to get your folks for X-mas, I think anything you do will be loved. Parents love just about anything their kids get /make them. If you pick it out or make it with your hands, that's the best gift you can give. They know you are thinking about them.
My hubby and I usually gift shop for our boys together. It is so much fun and we get to play around in the toy stores and book shops too. We feel like kids again. We already put up our Christmas tree as a family. All of the non-breakable ornaments are on the bottom of the tree so if our 2 yr old gets touchy-feely, there will be no accidental breakages. Making up our short list of X-mas cookies and will have our boys help mix them up, decorate, and of course taste test them. Merry Christmas everyone!
We have to be really careful about what we put on our tree because our cats enjoy jumping in it. Last year they broke about 8 glass ornaments. It was funny though. The decorations weren't expensive and the cats are only a yr. old. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
Rambaby, when we had a cat, we put balloons all around the bottom of the tree. The cat played with and burst one, got the shock of his life, and never went near it again. May be worth a try!
Thanks stephy. I'll try it.
I absolutely love Christmas!
Buenos Noches Chicas!
Christmas is a great time. I like setting up the tree with my family, spending time with them, but I do not like the eggnog(it is disgusting)lol. I love Christmas!!

How many of you have seen the ad with the baby sleeping next to a meat cleaver, suggesting that co-sleeping is just as dangerous?
