Yesterday Chris and I went and started our Christmas shopping. With me staying home we knew we would have to start early so we aren't bombarded with it all at once. We got a pretty good start. Actually we are almost done for the kids. We put alot of stuff in layaway. Ben is completely done, and Hannah and Alanna only need 2 more things each..And then the stocking and the kiddos are done.
Since Chris and I got together about 5 years ago its been one of our favorite things to do around this time of year. We pick a day and leave the kids with a sitter and do our shopping together. We play with all the toys and take our time and its always a lot of fun. This year was hard to control ourselves. With finally having a boy in the house, Chris wanted to go a little over bored, well actually me too. We had to keep reminding each other he will only be 5 months on Christmas. With all the cool things they have like tool benches, 4 wheeler power wheels, the HUGE walking dinosaur, and cars galore it was like "Christmas" for us....go figure?
Chris was all for buying a baseball, a mitt and bat. He wanted to teach Ben how to play ball right away. We finally settled on an elmo/cookie monster giggle ball and fisher price phone. Lets not have him grow to fast, huh!
