I'm taking my oldest daughter shopping today so she can buy gifts for the family. (She's a college kid.) I also need to buy TGI Friday gift cards for my husband to give to his employees.

I'm done shopping for gifts, but my oldest and I are going shopping today. We're also having lunch at PF Changs and going to see The Pursuit of Happyness. I need to find him a sport jacket, there's a book I need to get, and I need a new sifter, so we have several stops. Oh, I want to go to Wild Oats and Costco too - he'll be thrilled with two extra stops. LOL

I still have shopping to do. I'll probably try to get it done by tomorrow. I still need to pick up stuff for my mom, my dad, mom's bf, nephew(I'll probably end up giving him cash), stocking stuffers, and a few odds and ends. I still need to get food bought for Christmas dinner too.

Then I will be done

I still have about 6 people to get something for, just little things though. I don't stop buying stuff for the kids until my last minute in the store before Christmas,lmao. They got a ton of big presents so I'll just keep buying little things and stocking stuffers such as chapstick & earrings,lol. I haven't even started wrapping,lol. If you would see the pile of stuff....:bigcry: ! I have a few boxes that will take almost one roll of wrapping paper themselves,lol. I will have some excited kids on Monday morning,lol.

I have just a couple of things to pick up. Whole family is going out tonight to Sam's Club to look for stuff for the grandparents/groceries. DH went out last night for the first time to do his shopping - 3 hours later he came back home with nothing and said he was "shell-shocked." Men!!! they get so lost this time of year, I just have to laugh. :D

I usually end up at Walgreens around 2am on Christmas morning for batteries. That's because I always wait that long to wrap though, and then I realize I need them. This year, since I am wrapping before Christmas Eve, and I put the batteries in as I wrap, I've been making a list of what I need as I go along.

My husband is going out to do his shopping tonight. I hope he can manage to get everything done! I don't know why he feels compelled to wait till a few days before Christmas EVERY year!!

I still have all the wrapping to do. The mountains of presents is completely overwhelming to me this year! I just don't know where to start! And to think I told my husband back in June that I was done shopping for everyone and was SO proud of myself for not going overboard! HA!!!! Six months later, now it's a different story! How could I resist the deals?

hehe, I was coming here to post about batteries also. I have been on my mom to buy some for the roboraptor she got DS all week!! Good thing I remembered, or he would have been devastated. I have to pick up one more thing, SYRUP for the french toast casserole I have to take to SIL's Sunday. I also ran out of TP, mouthwash, fabric softener, soap, wipes, and trash bags today!! Yikes! That will be such a miserable trip.

This was in our church cookbook, I've never had it, but the woman that put it in is a pretty good cook! and it sounds so easy and my IL's have no tastebuds whatsoever, so they are good guinea pigs. 1 10oz loaf French Bread, cut into 1 inch cubes 3 C. Milk 8 eggs 4 tsp. sugar 1 tsp vanilla 3/4 tsp salt Topping: 2 Tbsp. butter, cubed 3 Tbsp. sugar 2 tsp. ground cinnamon Place bread cubes in a greased 13x9x2 pan. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, and salt. Pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Dot with butter. Combine sugar and cinnamon, sprinkle over the top. Cover and bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. Serve with syrup.
