I have

My husband
my brother
my parents
my father's wife
my uncle
3 people at work
My MIL, FIL and BIL (husband takes care of this, but I'd like to get them cards or something small just from me also)

Plus I do stockings for my mom and husband, and my husband and father's wife both have birthdays very close to Christmas so I get separate gifts for those. :wtf:

I'm sure some of you have a lot more than that though!

*sighs* too many. I don't mind the kiddies, but EVERYONE in DH's family, like come-on, we're grown-ups. I have suggested kris kringle many times, they don't bite. So whatever, it's not my family. I just go out and spend, and if DH doesn't like it, HE can take it up w/ them. Frig.

And you reminded me about the stockings... damn! I always forget that! Thx.

AND there are about 5 peopel w/ birthdays w/in days of Christmas. It never ends....

Fa lalalalalala

Just the kids...hopefully the dh will do what he did for everyone last year again. He decided to charter a bus and take everyone to AC for the day. Knocked out a lot of Christmas shopping. Got to spend some time with everyone. And everyone had a good time. Would it be terrible to do that again?
