Hoping to have this done quickly(the shopping not the guy),
 PS-Word to the wise since I don't fall in that category, write down what you have purchased and what is in the mail. Trust me it will make life easier if you can easily find what is on its way and what is lost.

Did I ask you before if you were secretly a gay man disguising yourself as a suburban Mom? I really am starting to wonder.

slugmama said...

Please tell me you are DONE now!
I think if your list gets much longer we will run out of words in

I just noticed your picture. Some days I am just sloooooow! ;-)

SonyaAnn said...

Mark-Den has asked that same question before. Hmmmmm, makes me wonder.

SonyaAnn said...

sluggy-You are funny. I'm about 3/4 of the way done. I love to give gifts, and Den has a huge family. I guess since I really don't have family I make up for it on his side. I'll never stop giving gifts. I just can't do it. But I figure if I can get the costs down very low or free(I'll try harder next year) I'll eventually get the sluggy stamp of approval. I have to do this in baby steps.

McVal said...

We've got a huge family too. 8 kids in just my siblings and 4 on his side. then each of those kids decided to try and race each other to a dozen. Just kind of kidding. 1 had 14 kids, another has 9. I'm a slacker with 3.
But with no many nieces and nephews I limit it to however many kids will be at that family Christmas get-together, then god children.
What a hunk-a-hunk-a Christmas cheer!

Sheila said...

I like his muscles. He is well sculptured. I admire that & your awesome gift list. TY.

Jill said...

What were you saying again? I remember why I like to visit your site! LOL. Just kidding! Sounds like you are doing great with Christmas, I sat down to get my list in order and got distracted so many times! we're shopping on black friday, it's date day every year for Jerry and I, sad huh? LOL
Have a great Thanksgiving!


Jane said...

Oh that pic so reminds me of Justin Timberlake on SNL and his Christmas Classic "Dick in a Box"!
Here's the link if you've forgotten this special holiday moment:

Sheila said...

@ Jane, LMAO "dick in a box"...THAT should have been the post title SonyaAnn! it for Friday!

Frances said...

Did you write anything? Once I saw your package, I lost focus.

SonyaAnn said...

McVal-WOW I can't even imagine your Christmas list. I thought that mine was bad. I just try and get little family gifts so that will cover a few people at a time.
And yes, I like that Santa too.

SonyaAnn said...

Sheila-Thank you much!

SonyaAnn said...

Jill-Den and I consider his calls to me during the day, dates. So at 9am, 11:50am and 2pm we have our dates. Married with kids and you have to get creative with date time.
I haven't been shopping on black Friday in years. There was a shooting and a stabbing a while ago and every year there is a few fist fights. It just kinda ruins the holiday But I was thinking about hitting our local CVS for deals. We will see if I'm up to it after all of the turkey.

SonyaAnn said...

Jane-HAHAHA! I have never seen that one. Maybe I will get one for Den for Christmas.

SonyaAnn said...

Frances-That seems to be happening more and more.
