Countdown to Christmas: I know your immediate reaction is "it's not even Thanksgiving yet!!" However, I know for me, Christmas comes up way too fast. So, I'm being proactive and getting an early start. There are 48 (as of 11/7) days until Christmas, so I'm making my (shopping) list and checking it twice to ensure I bet all of the last-minute shoppers (which I'm usually in that crowd).
Here are a few hot-ticket items for this year: http://www.toysrus.com/shop/index.jsp?categoryId=10811023 http://www.gifts.com/christmas/top-picks/pe6Rpa?sid=google:XMAS_christmas%202012%20best%20gifts:P&gclid=CO3f0rrn8bICFSWoPAodYU4A3w
