Yes, this is a post about Christmas in September. No I am not completely off my rocker. I am a planner I do my best to get the majority of things done early so I can enjoy the real reason for the season.
I have been trying to get ideas from the girls so I can start stashing things I find on sale! We have a new plan this year…. we are scaling back gifts.
Last year I really thought I did well I think each kid had maybe 10 gifts from Mom and Dad, 1 from their sister, and then their ‘Santa’ gift. It still felt like too much.
This year I am making it MUCH easier. We are sticking to the 4 Gift Rule!
We are going to stick to this rule for adults too! I am really excited about this. I don’t have to fret about what I am going to buy. I have already some ideas going for the kiddos.
Munchkin (Age 4):
W: Magformers- These awesome squares/triangles ect. that you can build 3D shapes with!
N: A star ‘turtle’ in pink
W: A dress for her and her American Girl Doll (Purple and sparkly of course!)
R: This is up for debate… she is reading so maybe some ‘easy readers’
Peanut (Almost 2):
W: Her own ‘laptop’. She would LOVE something to ‘type’ on!
N: Still thinking!
W: Not sure!
R: Tag Jr. Reader and Books (we actually have these from Munchkin but she will LOVE them!)
So what is on your Christmas Lists?
