    I thought of something else to get our 3yr old son. "Let's go fishing"
    I took him to our local family centre last week on a special day when high school psych students would be there with special activities for children. Our son stayed at a water fishing table for the entire hour, even though there were a variety of other options available to him.

    LOL...save it! Or stuff it into someone's Christmas stocking!
    I received it too, and started using it. I don't have many wrinkles at my age, 66, so I've been pretty lucky. They really should account for our ages when they send a free gift, or make it something everyone could use, like shower gels, perfumes, etc....

    @Chantal great job on getting the Christmas light up while the weather is still good

    I went through my drawer of stocking stuffers/Christmas gifts and there were a few things I had forgotten about so I now start thinking of the boys stockings, etc and best prices and where to purchase items.

    I also have enough to do 2 top SDM redemptions so I'm pretty excited, I will check out 1 of the local sdm's tomorrow evening while ds2 has an appointment. Hoping they have a few tv dvd series and headphones for both guys.

    I have enough to do 2 redemptions too! Hoping they have a good flyer/extra redemption coming up soon. I tend to stock up more on food and household supplies (Toilet paper/toothpaste etc) when I redeem but did see a few things that I could get for my oldest. Need to pull out my Christmas bin this weekend for sure and see what I have so far!! I so wanted to be done by November 1st and wrapped by mid-Nov! I better get on it!

    Just saw an sale on Amazon for the wooden sorter (toy) by Melissa and Doug on for $9.97! So grabbed it and 2 items from my saved cart to spend over $25 for free shipping. Spent $26 and change. 3 Gifts. Toy for niece. Guitar pics for DS for stocking and Blu-ray of comedian for my man

    Few more stocking stuffers picked up today. Some nice earrings for mom for $2.68 at pier 1. Also picked up some kind of crackers that are to be eaten with gin and tonic drinks. Dh is totally into gin and tonic at the moment so thought it would be a fun thing for his stocking and on clearance at chapters for $3. Also bought pancake mix and syrup for Christmas family. Pm'ed freshco and a and got 3300 points so $2.70 for all three. Have a Christmas present in my trunk for dh. My dad will give to him. I not only have to buy everything we give but also end up buying things for my parents to give to us. My mom is pushed to limit dealing with my dad who has Alzheimer's so we try to help out where we can. It looks like dh's espresso machine is dying a slow death so will have to find one on sale for him for Christmas. He is super picky about the whole espresso thing.

    I used to shop for my parents for our family of 4 this way everyone got what they wanted vs. things they did not want or plain jane cash which is nice but tends to not be spent on ourselves.

    Sounds like you are well on your way with your shopping & stockings, great job.

    Ds2's appointment was cancelled so no shopping tonight but I think it's for the best as everyone is sick with a head cold. Getting super excited as November is quickly approaching...hohoho

    57 days to go, it's quickly sneaking up

    -as for xmas supper -I haven't hosted it in a few years -last year daughter had it at her condo for boxing day -this year my daughter-in-law is cooking a turkey at their house on xmas as she alternates between her parents and us -my daughter andf her hubby I will always have them spend xmas with us as his parents celebrate xmas eve
    -I did a huge thanksgiving feast and my daughter brought me flowers -I don't ask them to bring anything as I loved doing it all -my grocery was a bit over this month but it doesn't matter as I had all 4 adult kids their spouses included and ashlyn
    -I don't have to worry about parents as both sets of ours are gone -mind you I miss buying for my mom and filling her stocking -heck I miss her in general somedays

    I won 2 strings of palm tree and flamingo novelty lights from bidding wars for my sister. $7 for both.

    Still not sure whats happening for Christmas. I think it will be at my dads cabin if I stay local but I may got to Sask to spend it with my mom and bunch of aunts uncles and cousins. I really do love the BIG family get togethers so its very tempting. Havent even looked at flights yet to see if its doable.

    Your Saskatchewan family sounds like a great bet for Christmas! I, too, would love to have large get-togethers...Can you do New Year, perhaps, with your Dad?

    Yeah Sask depends on funds and my dad's is my only other option....I don't even know if they are doing anything. He doesn't like the fuss and stress of Christmas but he is ok if everyone comes to him. He is incredibly generous though. And a rustic cabin Christmas with a deep fried turkey appeal to me too. We shall see, no plans have been announced or invited gone out yet..

    Yesterday my Mom asked me what I thought about a Prairie Christmas and I said I had defintiely considered it. Then she changed to or how about Mexico? And I said, "HELL YAH!!" So, well there you go...I may have 3 options. haha
