We don't really do Santa, so Rowan knows her gifts were from us. Unfortunately, what she got was a half-finished dollhouse. She loves it and still plays with it, but it's missing a few key elements, like a roof. We hope to get it done tonight or tomorrow.
Yesterday I was asking her about her presents, and she couldn't tell me what she received from Mama and Papa, so I told her to look behind her (because she was standing about two feet away from the dollhouse). She looked around, kind of confused, then got this big grin on her face, shouted "a screwdriver!" and picked up the screwdriver that DH had left on the floor. So I guess we could have saved ourselves a lot of trouble and just given her that.
Ds got a train table..a play bbq grill.. tball set.. cars.. a play tent..a new hat..pjs..
One of his grandmas got him a toddler drum set.. its pretty loud but he loves it and its adorable.
Both kids got books as well. New baby got a taggie blanket..rattle thing..teethers..and his activity play mat for the floor.
Lucas got a train set too from Santa. It's the Melissa & Doug one, and looks pretty much like the pic Jackie posted. I had it all set up like that too, and he had it demolished within minutes! I actually used the rest of his bday money to buy the Melissa & Doug Activity Table to set it up on, I just haven't gotten around to putting it together. Once I do I'm hoping he will play with it a ton. From me he got the Melissa & Doug mailbox which he absolutely loves, and keeps having to fight his sister away from it, lol. Also a monster bowling set, a toy broom, dustpan, vacuum set, a firetruck, a couple of wooden puzzles, some movies, and I forget what all else. My fiance & I ended up opening most of his gifts b/c he could care less about opening them.
Lily on the other hand LOVED opening presents and wanted to know why she couldn't have more :roll: From Santa she got the Disney Princess Dream Castle (which is huge! taller than she is!) and from my fiance all the Disney Princess dolls to go w/ it. I gave her some Barbie stuff. Her interactive baby dolls were a huge hit too, along with a ton of other stuff she got. So much stuff! Soooo glad it's over! :)
We had the train set set up all fancy with bridges and such Veronica (he got a M&D set plus a small Thomas set that I found at Ross for $13). And he kept breaking it. lol. Right now the track pieces are all in a bin in our play space. He keeps digging out the trains and playing with them without the rails. My husband has decided he's going to build a trail table that will slide under his bed (or it can sit out in the play area too). I think if the tracks aren't in a bin they'll be used more.
We went to DH's parents the weekend before. Santa brought him a John Deere pedal tractor with a trailer. He loved it! He is so into tractors and big trucks right now. Santa at our house brought him a kitchen, his eyes got so big when he saw it. Then he got a few more tractor toys, hot wheels with ramp sets, books, puzzles, pjs, toy story mr potato head dolls, bumper car from my mom (all three kids got one to play at her house) (they are little ride on cars), and a pooh pillow pet that he calls "poop". We still have two gifts he hasn't opened. Just wasn't into it. Definitely not into the stockings.
