The gifts were a least for the kids

Either that or they were good actors.

Yesterday after church, and the kids Christmas pageant, we headed to the Bro-in laws to trade gifts.

The one niece was very 'ooooh cool' about her gift, the other played with hers right away. And the boys played with their laser game most of the evening. They tried to run downstairs to test it out before we even gave them the second present!

Hopefully the 31st and the 2nd my husband will take them in pairs to the arcade, to use up the second half of their gift. (we have done that for birthdays and they seem to really enjoy it)

Unfortunately we are not sure if the parents liked what they got at all. I really am so ready to not give to adults at all. I would be more than happy with a no gift obligation or reception from the adults. I might try to talk my husband into at least testing the waters on that for next year...

    I stopped giving gifts to both adults and children. The only person that seems to have a problem is my mom. She buys for my nieces and nephews and feels bad that she doesn't do anything for me since I don't have children.

    Try a chinese auction for the adults! It is fun and takes the will they like it out of it.

    If I have to give a gift to an adult, I give gift certificates to a good restaurant.

    Two of them, two of us, not much of a surprise if we do the Chinese auction...though I was debating on having them give us babysitting, and us give them dinner out... That way I know we will like it, and they well.. who doesn't like dinner out?
