      Maria, One more thing think about maybe focus on being givers this year not that you are not I am not saying that. But go to a nursing home and Caroling with your children. Go to a children’s hospital and read the Christmas story to the children.

      Depending how big your children are you could serve food at a homeless shelter. Collect newspaper from friends and family and donate it to the animal shelter. Things like that.

      Children are givers and they love to help out others. Just some ideas! Christina

      shopping for Christmas in August,but the last two years,things poped up

      am going to get it all done,and where the money is going to come from!
      I still hadn’t even gotten my Turkey and fresh sweet potatoes!!

      I am
      going to have 4 family members to shop for and my tradition is buy the
      ritual underware,socks,toothbrushes and paste and Christmas pajamas
      (which I let them open on X-mas eve) to get the Christmas eve picture!
      But being the gas is now 3 dollars a gallon and daycare(so I can work)
      is at 70 dollars a week(12 dollars extra a full day)I barley make
      enough to pay the bills! I am needing a Winter coat and there just
      isn’t enough money to go around again
      this year!! How can I make it a
      good Christmas,any advice or things you can come up with would help me
      greatly.
