My Christmas shopping is completely done! It’s easy because I only buy presents for the kids, and what we can buy here is limited. They’re each getting three small toys, sharing a star projector nightlight, and then their stockings will be filled with little toys, bubbles, play doh and snacks. Since there is no one big present, we’ll just leave everything unwrapped and say it’s all from Santa. I have a feeling this might be the last year that Charlie believes anyway!
