For the last few years, we've been doing a drawing for the adults in our family (Mom and Dad, Jamie and Anjie and Miles and I). That way we can cut down on the money we spend and get more thoughtful gifts for the person that we draw. We still buy gifts for the kids, which is really the most fun part anyway.
This year Anjie had a great idea. Instead of doing completely random drawings, why don't we swap households. We get the benefit of consolidating gifts and can buy a household gift if we'd like. So, this year, this is how it will go:
Miles and Jennifer --> Grammie and Bumpa
Jamie and Anjie --> Miles and Jennifer
Grammie and Bumpa --> Jamie and Anjie
Let the shopping begin! (I love the holidays.)
