I'm pretty proud to say we've been done with Christmas shopping for the kids for a couple weeks now. One Sunday night my husband and I sat down with the laptop and in one fast swoop added items I'd been saving in our wish list to our amazon cart and hit purchase. I'm hitting up the grandparents for some of the items (ah-hem Potterybarn chairs) and have picked up a couple good sales at Target but for the most part Amazon is where it's at for us. I learned from last year though you have to order early because the closer you get to Christmas you'll see the price of toys increase as well as shipping cost...stuff that used to be prime won't be anymore.
So bearing our 3 year old remains on the nice list the next three weeks...here's some items that Santa may bring for our boys. James Penn is 9 months old and Hunter V is 3 years so I'd say our gift ideas fit kids ranging from 1 to 5. Don't even think of asking me what an 8 year old wants! :)
1. Pete the Cat / 2. Hide N Squeak Eggs / 3. Magna Tiles / 4. Move and Crawl Ball / 5. Alphabet Train Floor Puzzle / 6. B. Parum Pum Pum Drum / 7. Potterybarn Kids Bean Bag Chair / 8. Crayon Rocks / 9. Kidoozie Funtime Tractor / 10. Duplo Creative Animals / 11. Hot Wheels Energy Track
My husband and I work hard for what we have, but regardless I feel very blessed to be able to provide a nice Christmas for our kids and also extremely thankful for all four of their healthy, supportive and generous grandparents we have as well! Thanks be to god! xo
