Birthday and Christmas

So Chris and I have decided that we need to go about our kids birthdays and Christmas's differently. All our kid's birthdays are way too close to Christmas and it is very stressful for us (and you too) to have to buy two gifts. Plus our kids are already very spoiled. So here's the new plan.

We are going to cover birthdays. And then for Christmas we're going to give them a stocking, a Santa gift, and that's it. So Christmas will have more gifts from family and friends, and birthdays will be from just us. I hope that makes it easier on you guys!!

These kinds of things work out really well. I know someone who only gives their children 3 gifts on christmas period to symbolize the gifts from the wise men. Saves money and prevents spoiled children to a degree. Good luck with your idea... I think it's a great one.
