So, its hard to tell from the news and analysts. Ya think its gonna be a good year for Christmas sales, or will be it be lower?

In hindsight, I think we bought more between Oct and (the upcoming) end of Dec than last year, but most of that was NOT gifts.

Are you shopping more or less this year?

Personally, I think overall sales are yet another victim influenced by the war and election......there's been way to much drama this year:( . My personal budget for the hollidays hasnt changed much, but I fear that may not be so for some others:2cents: .

LOL....no reason, I forgot that you are actually moving to LIVE over there. For some reason, I was thinking that you were going to be on assignment and bouncing around all of the time in which case a lap would be a handy item to have:D.

I think it would be very interesting to live in another part of the world, not very many people get a chance to do that. Whatever you do, just dont start speaking Japanese:laughing:!

I think that after 3 years, I will miss the states so much that I am going to despise everything Japanese. But who knows? :dunno:

I think after 3 years of Japan your sanity will be nothing more than a distant memory and your wife will be helping you pull your foot out of your own ass........but, who am I to say anything:p ;) .

We're definitely shopping less this year, but at the same time we're better off financially than last year. Doesn't make much sense, but oh well. :dunno:

A decline in shopping is probably the reason you are more financially stable;) . Having a kid can do crazy things to people, including becoming a pack rat with money. Role model parents......way to go Scott:D .

Actually, billions and billions of people live in another part of the world. And whats really surprising, some of those people think that we live in another part of the world.

I think Scott and I are still amazed that we're parents, it's a scary thing!

As for the original question: we're spending money on pictures of the baby and family this year, and staying pretty simple with gifts. I think we're more into the excitement of our first year as a family (with baby) and just enjoying that, as opposed to racking up bills.

Slip-on: diapers are a pain... $10 for a pack of 40, and Newborn size don't come in bigger amounts. :mad: Scott had it right, though, the food is free, which is nice! :thumb:

Scary......but a good thing. If I were one of you guys, that baby would be all the Christmas present I needed;) :thumb: .
