well even that I suppose but its nice to see the kids getting lots of presents. Maybe when they're a bit older that will work out better. I know my friend does it with her family and the kids aswell but she said she always ends up buying the kids something small also. So basiclly on Xmas day in my house I get a present from my Mother, yet I'm handing out a fortunes worth of presents. Doesn't really bother me on the day I suppose but trying to budget and make sure every kid is getting looked after is stressful. Gosh, I really do sound like scrooge!!
