we stopped buying presents for each other, and our extended families, a long time ago. If we want something, we buy it. With no kids to spend money on, we seem to do all right in the "presents" category 24/7/365.

Family gift this year will be a trip - probably a Disney Cruise since my three girls are a good age for that.

Wife gets a new Garmin running watch and I will ask for something too expensive so who knows what I'll get from Santa.

Our kids are getting Nabi's...they gonna freak out on us...they always want to play with our iPad and iPhones and we say no most of the time, now they'll have their own but with restrictions

Wife and I long time ago always buy a mutual gift together for the both of us to share, works out great.

Well our new camper is do in around the middle of December so it is going to be hard to put the new rig under the tree so we bought a new 70" shape LED TV and an enterainment center......Now if I could just come up with a mod to install it in the new camper like I did for the 32" in our 2006 Rockwood.8314ss.

It might fit under the tree if boondocking...

We bought a Solera 24R at the Pomona show. It was originally estimated by the factory rep to be 4 weeks. It is now 5.5 weeks. I hope we have it before Christmas.

Our son and daughter-in-law gave us our first grandchild on September 1. Not exactly Christmas, but it sure has changed the mood around my wife. She is still extremely excited. But that isn't exactly a Christmas present. But a lot of the follow on stuff is.
