    Default Way OT: Christmas

    I'm really struggling with what to get my older kids for Christmas (3.5 YO girl and 1.5 YO boy). Just wondering if you guys have started shopping (or know what you're getting) for your older kids yet. Needing some ideas here!

    And if you're a FTM (or not!), are you getting the baby anything for Christmas?

    I just went Christmas shopping today!! I want to be done before Black Friday!
    I have a 4y boy and 1y boy.
    4y old is getting a leappad 2, a batman playhouse, action figures, puzzles, dry erase board, early reading books
    1y old is getting, age approprate coloring markers, board books, ball popper, puzzle & maybe a child's rocking chair. He isn't getting that much, just some stuff to open.
    Does your DD have a doll house or a play kitchen, or dress up clothes? That's probably what I would get!

    I also have no idea what to get DS for Christmas either, he might just get a new bedding set. DH wants to get him a BB gun.

    When DS was three he loved the Leapfrog game things.

    I have some pretty good ideas for DS. DD is a little harder and her birthday is 3 weeks after Christmas! I always get my unborn babies a little something at Christmas. Probably a couple of small toys or books, I will probably also do a little handmade something. Unfortunately, we will be a couple weeks shy of finding out the gender...

    Haven't started yet and IMO he has TOO much right now that I can't imagine fitting more toys into our family room.

    Anyhow, he's getting a Flyboat (Wonderpets....bought it last year and forgot to wrap it) and probably some other cars/trains/planes/boats, etc. Maybe a movie or two. I'd like to get him a kitchen because he loves them whenever we are at someone's house, but i simply don't think we have the room, especially in less than a year he will be sharing that space with a sibling.

    DH and I argue in the store every year about presents. He goes overboard and I scale back. The ironic this is I am WAY more into Christmas than he is!

    I probably won't get the baby anything, but I will start cross-stitching it's christmas stocking. I made DS's (only took me 2 years, lol!) and just finished mine.

    New baby will trump DH's and I will work on that one.

    I was kind of thinking of getting my kids a wagon. Do any of you have one and actually use it? I have a double jogging stroller that I use a lot for running but I was thinking a little wagon would be fun for walks or at least they could pull their toys around in it in the backyard. I don't know though, just a thought.

    The other thing I was thinking was getting them a balance bike. DH & I are big into cycling so we'd love our kids to get riding as early as possible and the bike shops here are all about these balance bikes for under 5 kids. Anyone try one of those?

    I doubt I'll get the unborn baby anything, I tend to way overbuy for them later anyway. DH always gets something *special* for the kids that I don't know about and I'm sure he'll include the baby in that.

    During the summer I saw a family with the neatest wagon. It folded up for storage and fit nicely in a car, it had lots of cup holders and if I remember correctly there were seat straps for the kids. I asked where they got it and it was from Costco. And we did have a wagon when DS was little and I loved it and we used it a lot.
