Christmas&Other Holidays too!

For the mommys that celebrate the holidays what are you getting your older munchkins? Will you be buying for babe as well?

FTMs will you be getting anything for babe!? Just for fun?

Kaylee is getting a play kitchen as her BIG present from us, and from santa she is getting 2 disney princess movies and dress up clothes! Her stocking will have socks, goldfish, nail polish and candy (:

We are getting her a few other gifts as well like a Mr. potato head, new shoes, new snow boots, a few clothes, a toy story table and chair set and new craft supplies!! Biggrin [A lot of this we found or will be looking for on CL and second hand stores lol]

I am also making her two magnet boards using those large flat oil drip pans! We are using velcro to stick it to the wall. One will be plain and used for magnets the other I am spray painting with chalk paint so she has a coloring area in her room.

Kaylee picked somethings out for Rowan, we want to make him a real to her as possible and we figured this may help and it certainly has!

Family has said they are buying for both kiddos as well, we are hoping this will complete our list of needs for him Haha.

That is the coolest thing ever Kristen! I remember I had a barbie one when I was little!! We thought about getting Kay one this year but opted for the kitchen set instead lol Next year for sure! Those are such a blast!

We are getting the boys 3DS's and some games. They both have been bugging us because apparently "every" kid has one! I want to say, seriously, every 5 and 4 yr old has one?? But they think because their 6 yr old cousin has one, theyhave to have one too! Ha! Anyway, they love video games, so we plan on just getting them each one.

As for baby, we won't buy anything for him for Christmas. Although, with my first pregnancy my parents bought us something for the baby. That was fun. But now that we already have kids, I doubt they will think to buy anything for baby. I didnt even think of it till you mentioned. But if we need stuff, we will just buy it whenever, not nececarilly related to Christmas.

I am not going to get the new baby anything this year but for my daughter we are getting a American Girl Bitty baby, some baby accessories, probably a dvd and some clothes and then random other little stuff. For my son I am not sure what "big" item to get him. He tells me everyday new things he wants for Christmas. I know he will be getting some tractors, dinosuars, a dvd or 2, I will have to keep thinking on what else to get him. I really want to try not to get either of them very much because they get SO many presents and it gets to be too much! I want them to understand what the real meaning of Christmas is and that it isn't all about getting a million gifts.

I think that a nursery counts as a Christmas gift, plus all the clothes and shoes I can't say no to, so Bean is covered for Christmas. Haha.

I do want to say that I will be really bummed if my family buys "us" presents but it's all stuff for her. It may sound greedy, and I have no problem with them buying HER gifts, but don't say that they are for US when they aren't. Haha.

Dd got her Bitty Baby last Christmas, so this year she is getting the diaper bag(old model from AG Outlet in OshKosh-saved about $10 over new model) and an $8 Circo dolly bathtub, (she want to take care of her babies like mommy) and the Leapfrog Tag reader from us. Santa is bringing the Playmobil Puppet Theater, the Pooh Bear movie, and the Nick Jr Dance game for Wii. The rest of the family is sending Tag books and fleece's since WI winters last forever. If I have time and energy, I will probably try to sew some clothes for her 12 in doll. We can't buy anything in that size in our area, but I found the patterns on sale for .99.

The baby won't be getting anything (except hopefully a name!)
