Christmas shopping

Last night Dewayne and I took the boys to Wal-Mart to get a few things we needed and we bought the BIG Christmas present while we were there.  The boys were made go to the toy section while Dewayne and I went and bought the present and took it to the car quickly before the boys could see.  I am so excited that I have bought the big present already so now it is just the small stuff left for them and then I am done :0)  I have already started buying presents and I am hoping to be done in the next few weeks.  I don't want to be last minute this year, it is too stressful and hectic.  It's funny because I am so peaceful when it comes to shopping this year.  I have told the boys that I am not going to go nuts with the shopping and I am only buying them one good present each and the rest will come from other family members and they were fine with it.  Every year I go nuts and buy them all kinds of crap that ends up not being played with or in the back of the closet.  Not this year!!!  
My daycare kids are all going to receive a hand knitted hat from me and if I have time I am going to make them gloves too.  I have already made one hat and last night I bought the yarn to make the girl's hats.  I made Kobe one as well so as of right now I have made two hats and they only took me about a day and a half each!  Cool huh?  I am actually really excited about knitting, I am doing it all alone and I am actually able to do it.  Of course I got help from my Mamma in regards to size and the amount of stitches to do.  But the patterns are my own and I am super excited about it.  

Ok well I am going to start my Monday, I only have two kids today so this should be a nice relaxing day :0)  It's about time I get a day like this.  Have a great day :0)
