If anyone finds gingerbread man paper please let me know. I wrap my daughters presents in it every year and I'm almost out and haven't seen any.

Mark likes to wrap all of my presents in paper with deer on it. He gets a kick out of that....he'd probably do camo if he could find it. lol

Sheri I will keep my eyes open too--and I will have my DD keep a look-out too. I completely understand the need for certain paper.
FYI: My girls are 27 & 21, and both are married--I STILL use certain paper to wrap their gifts in.
they tease me because i have a roll of paper i have had since they were VERY small. (It is seseme street)
I am thinking it must have been a BIG roll, don't you ?? lol

Well Loz, at least he uses PAPER---My DH folded over a brown grocery shopping bag one year & stapled it closed---Inside was a wooden school house-Bird feeder. he THOUGHT he was soooo funny---You see he was to buy me a curio cabinet for my precious moments---Oh well the cabinet is in my hall as I type---

I wish I could find big rolls of paper any more. They are very hard to come by.
Santa used to wrap all of his in one kind of paper different from the family paper and then leave us the end of his roll. One year it was a huge roll of thick crepe paper red bricks (like you would make your own fake fireplace out of) bought the year before in an after Christmas sale. Santa is a thrifty soul.
Back then Santa used to get the "best" and most plentiful gifts. For my second family Santa has only gotten them one or two small gifts and filled their stockings. I took credit for the bigger gifts. The reasoning behind that is that even small kids can understand that you are broke and can't afford as much this year. But it is harder to convince them that Santa is broke and can't afford it all.

I get really big rolls of wrapping paper at Sam's Club. It is cheap and there is lots of it!! It lasts me a really long time. But of course I buy other paper too because I don't like to have all my gifts wrapped in the same paper! lol lol

I don't belong to any of the club stores. So that isn't really an option for me. But it's nice to know where to find some if I do want it.

yep--I too always had "santa paper"--because how could santa and mom & Dad have the same paper??? BUT I taught my girls early on-----Santa had a lot of gifts to buy and could only spend so much on each child-----

BUT I also said that they had a better chance asking Santa for a certain item thant me---

About paper: I would have several rolls of "Santa paper" on hand and then-several rolls of "our" Christmas paper on hand as well--

My presents for Athena are wrapped and she's already saw the pile....she just thinks that I send them to Santa so he can bring them on Christmas eve. lol It'll be sad when she quits believing in Santa one day.

ya know Loz, one day--many years ago-- my cousin & I were talking about just that item (santa) she said her daughter confronted her with the words--there is NO Santa is there??? she was so shocked she said nothing, hence the discussion.

so I told her--well I will say "yes there is" if/when it comes up at my house--(the girls were all very small). because----there is----in this case my cousin was the Santa--
then much later when the girls are older, they will gradually come to the realization on their own and the true discussion can be had. it must have worked because she did not call saying she had a crying child at home---

i solved the santa discussion once and for all. i told the kids when they were the middle ages (just the time when their wishes got bigger and more expensive) that there were 2 things to remember about santa. thing was was that he had many many helpers, and they might be asked to help too. thing 2 was that if they quit believing in santa, he could and would stop believing in them. that would mean the only gifts they got would be from me. since it varied from year to year whether santa brought the "good" gift or lots of little ones, they never wanted to take that chance.

and when their friends would try the "there is no santa, it's just your mom and dad" they would reply "i don't know about you but at our house, the minute you quit believing in santa, he quits believing in you."

i can't take credit for that. a friend with 7 kids used that to keep the olders from spoiling it for the youngers. it worked!

That's good for both of you....... thumbup I will tell Athena there is a Santa until the day I die.

Cute idea Jiffy.

Ya know my mom SWEARS when she was little she saw Santa....I'm serious she swears it.....and she said it wasn't her dad dressed up or anything.

Then when Cory was little we were in bed on Christmas Eve, it was a tradition---he wanted to sleep with me because I was the most excited about Christmas(still am)--so I was like a big kid to him. Well we were laying in bed talking about how we couldn't wait for the morning to come and we heard bells, like jingle bells from up on the roof....Now I know that everyone was asleep, and I know my dad would never ever get up on the roof of the house to do that....it's too dangerous.

So, a small part of me still holds onto the idea that maybe, just maybe there is a Santa out there somewhere. :wink:

BTW, I love leaving milk and cookies and carrots out for Santa and Rudolph...it feels "right" and Christmasy....Athena gets so excited.

I always told my kids that I believed in Santa. I still do tell them. Even the ones in their thirties. There are too many miracles on Christmas to disbelieve; battles stopped during various wars and such. Santa has multitudes of helpers all over the world. It is a wonderful thing to believe.

several things:

1) when I was small the coal mine in the town had a man dress as Santa, he took a bag of nuts/fruit/hard candy/ & a small cheap toy to each child who had a parent working at the mine (so perhpas your mom DID see "Santa")--I am sure the traditon was held by many mines no matter what town-or counrty they were in.

2) When my kids were small, one day they got a parcel stuffed with alfalfa in the mail--
it simply said that "Santa" was sending ahead something for his reindeer to eat when they reached our house, as he could not carry enough food along with him on his Christmas journey. To this day I h ave NO idea where that package came from.
3) we (the girls were small) had an experience similar to Corys.

4) No little ones here & I STILL put out cookies, milk and carrots for our "visitors"

I simply LOVE Christmas !!!!! :ding: bop

I just wish the spirit of Christmas was around more all year. I love the giving and the underlying joy that is there in the season.

Hello all.

I went Christmas shopping yesterday for the whole day with my mom. And you know what? It wasn't half as bad as I thought it would be lol

I bought all my paper and gift boxes, bows, tags and cards and such. I am almost done with all my shopping.(I ran out of money grin ) I got some good deals also. I also bought myself a new snow shovel, Merry Christmas to me.

I might do some shopping from Sears as well. I don't like the crowded stores. I found them very bad yesterday since it was a government holiday. The stores were overloaded with parents and crying kids.

I love shopping without the hustle & bustle--a person spends less money too because you will buy just what you need instead of all the great deals there will be out there. But then close to xmas i like to go out just to see all the decorations, music & such. Having said that--I really DO love to shop.

ya know I hate that (crying children) I have kids & I understand it--but----

personally if I had my kids with me shopping and they acted up they either found out they should not have done that OR we simply went home.

There was one store called "Holiday Home". It was all Christmas decor, it was so beautiful. I bought DD a few flavoured hot chocolate packs there to make up a Christmas mug(couldn't afford anything else with the prices lol ). If it's pretty ya just know it will be 'pretty' expensive.

I never have a problem with shopping. I make my list with an amount next to each person and a detailed list with what I need. I jot in the prices as I shop. I am never over budget that way.

my whole family does the list thing--but we find it hard

when you budget say $20.00 for a gift you have to figure in the tax & such. I remember one year my Brother took his Christmas club $$, made out an envelope for each person he had to buy for, put the allotment in each envelpoe & still had trouble--we figured it was the taxes & eating lunch & such-- I guess a person should under budget & then if you need more, it will be there.

Our tax here is 15% so it's easier to figure out. I budget everything so it's 'normal' to me lol

Our dollar store makes it easy as well. I knew I could only pick up 25 items to stay in the $30 budget I had. The ten and twenty dollar gift baskets you get at Wal-mart makes it easy as well. Set price, set amount.

Gift baskets??? At wal-mart??? hummmmmmmmmm I must check that out---


but this year the girls are getting their stockings, a small gift or 2, then a check--mom will not be shopping so much this year--what i have done is pretty much what I will be doing. Luckily since I knew i was gonna have the hysterectomy in June i did some xmas shopping before it--so I think i will be ok.

Beautiful baskets. They had perfume baskets, soap baskets, hot chocolate or coffee baskets, scrapbooking and craft baskets and such. They had an aisle full and they were either $10 for the small or $20 for the large. I picked up a few different ones for DD.

I have quite the collection of wrapping paper. I have paper from 10 years ago!! I use each paper one time each year so it lasts forever. I like to wrap each present with different paper. After I wrap one, that paper gets put back in the bag for next year. I usually buy it on sale or I will pay full price if I really like it. It has become a topic of conversation around here- Your mother has a weird obsession with holiday wrap!

I buy so many clothes as presents that boxes get expensive here after a while....a few years ago I kept about 25 boxes from Christmas but I didn't last year, so there are none this year....I decided I'm not spending the money on them....My one friend does pretty much all gift bags, she hates to wrap. lol

I'm a box and gift bag junkie. I always keep them from gifts we get. I have a closet full of them. I can't use bags for us, though. BT likes to peek into them!

Gift boxes are 4 for $1 here. So I bought 20 boxes for $5., and two rolls of paper at $1 each.

Here is what I do for gift boxes....whenever I buy clothes throughout the year I ask for a gift box with it. I put them away all year and come Christmas I have more than enough. lol That way I don't have to buy any!
