Rosey has 2 bags of treats, and a monkey toy.
Rascal has a sherpa lined tumble bed.
Renegade and Harley have a banana hammock, to go with their monkey hammock.
Harley has 2 bags of banana flavoured bandits.
Renegade has... I forget exactly what else I ordered for him Should be here tomorrow
All 3 ferrets are getting a tube to run in and share
Plus there are 2 or 3 Secret Santa packages coming for Rosey, and one coming for the ferrets.

Finn has a toy.

I wasn't going to buy Christmas gifts for the family, cause I am way too poor this year, but I won my mom something, so now I have to
My mom is getting a 3-pot crock pot thing
My brother I will likely just give him some US money for his trip to New Orleans in January
I'll hopefully win something for my dad within the next 3 weeks. If not, NO idea wtf to get him.

I'm not buying for anybody else this year. Eff it. Too poor for that stuff.
Ella: 3 year old female ferret
Nacho: 9 year old male ferret
Summer: 5 year old female ferret
Goodbye, Rosey. You were the best girl I could have asked for. 10/15/96-03/08/13

For my daughter, Emily: Ordered from Cabella's online: thermal base layer pants and top and some cozy micro fleece pants and top. (she's always freezing) A dress from Eddie Bauer. From Walmart, one of those memory foam mattress toppers. Her mattress needs some help. lol.

For my son, Andrew, I got at Eddie Bauer a nice jersey type shirt, a chamois shirt. (so soft and cozy). At Grocery Outlet I found a nice, thick, fleece-lined sweat shirt for him. From Cabella's, a pair of sheep skin-lined slippers. I'm looking at a cool fishing vest for him also. His b-day is the 7th, so I have to be careful not to slight him. lol. So, I need to find a couple of other little things or give him some cash. He'd like that.

For my Mom from Eddie Bauer, I found a super stylish sweater with a zipper and pockets that have a trim. And some slippers from Cabella's. She likes nice soaps and things, so I got some special soaps. I think I should find her something else for her to open, so will keep a look-out for something.

For my ex: from Cabella's online, I am ordering a Pendleton cardigan, zip-up sweater, another kind of insulated shirt (everyone is always freezing around here, which is so weird to me, oh well) sheep skin slippers and a gift card to Trader Joes.

For the whole family, I picked up the game, Balderdash...thought that would be fun.

The dogs usually get some bully sticks or some kind of new thing to chew on. Toker, my son's dog may get a new bed for when she's at my house....haven't decided yet. I usually, at the last minute pick up a few other little things. I'm debating on whether or not to do stockings this year.

For me, I'm getting a gorgeous down coat with a faux fur trim around the hood (semi dressy) from Eddie Bauer. I also sprang for an adorable plaid, down vest, a shirt to go under it and a cardigan sweater. We all went to the outlet mall the other day...too many good "savings" to pass up.

Do you buy yourself something and call it a Xmas present from yourself?

Stop it Beanie!

My mum says for Christmas what she really really wants is diamond earrings, 1/4 carat each. I highly doubt my dad is going to buy them for her, but I was thinking maybe I could find a "cheap pair". I'll try, but I might end up saving and waiting till Mothers' Day.

Other than that, I'm shopping for a crossdresser. I forgot how expensive makeup is, wigs, new shoes, etc.

That game is AWESOME. It is by far one of my favorite board games. If you're not afraid to make a fool of yourself the game Quelf is really fun too.

I have done pretty much nothing for Christmas shopping this year. I'm probably doing bath salts/washcloths for the girls and....I dunno what for the guys. Shipping to Hawaii for Matt's parents is going to kill us so I might just see if we can order their stuff from somewhere with free shipping. I hate to be all doom and gloom (normally I love Christmas) but I'm really not feeling it this year. I don't want to go to my parent's house, I don't want to hang out with my family, I don't want any presents, and I don't want to go buy anything. My cheer, it is broken.

We are just doing small stuff... It has got to fit in packages, lol.

We haven't really gotten anything yet, besides some bath & body works stuff for my sister (had coupon and was on sale).

We are planning to go to some local stores and antique stores this weekend and buy locally. I'm sure we'll make some cool, unusual finds.
