    I haven't bought a thing yet! The list is short this year though. The niece and nephews will get $. The out of town relatives get homemade goodies, my Aunt gets homemade egg ornaments , my DH reads my posts sometimes so I can't say:D and our son doesn't really know what he wants. Maybe a few movies, a couple of Green Day things and a pair of slippers.

    Since it is now just my son and myself, I bought my son what he wanted which was a Nintendo DSI

    Made some homemade toys for the dogs and the cats, the chickens will get food scraps and a Flock Block for each of the runs.
