This Friday night is special for two reasons this week. Not only is it Shabbat, but it also marks the start of Chanukah. All of the running around and getting things ready for our family has to be finished. Most items for the boys have been bought for a while (pre-Black Friday). We get them a little something for each night. Books factor into this a lot.
There are one or two items that I still need to get tomorrow. Hubby and I have also decided to purchase tickets to BlogHer ’10 as our presents to each other…at least I think that is the plan. Tonight the wrapping extravaganza will take place. While JL bakes something for gift giving (can’t say what since people read this),I will tackle project wrap and label. Saturday night we are heading to a Chanukah party with my parents, my brother and his family, grandmother, aunts, and an uncle. Right now we just hope the weather holds back on snow/ice for Uncle I, Aunt M and Cousin S can make it into town.
So my question to you this week:
Have you finished all of your holiday shopping yet? If you have not – good luck!
Now time to relax

I have no clue how to Christmas shop. I think it’s an American thing.
Is it about buying just gifts for family members?
I don’t have the $$ to do that. I just buy groceries.
However I did go to my first black friday and got a toy for each child so I’m excited to wrap this for them.

I put all the shopping into my hubby’s hands this year. He got all the presents the day after I gave him the kids lists. Which has been a stress off my back.
