We got DD (11) a new bike and helmet, she finally out-grew the old one. Also, we got her an art kit, Halo4, Lego My Friends: Art studio and the stage kit, some clothes and a monkey Scentsy buddy (that ones special to DD from DW, inside joke). We haven't gotten stocking stuffers yet but I'm gonna make sure an xbox MS points card makes it in there probably with some little hair or lip gloss stuff too.

Wow! I am surprised at the lengths of these lists! I don't have any gifts planned for DD 3 or DD 10 months

I figured I might pick up a doll for the 3 y/o and a toy for baby, whatever I come across on sale. Part of me is scared to start a tradition of expecting "lots of gifts" under the tree for my girls. But I will acknowledge that at the same time I know others will probably buy stuff for my girls, so maybe that eases some of the pressure for me.

I've gotten way too much for my DS4, but I just can't seem to resist, lol. I think I have more fun shopping than he has getting the gifts!

We got him:
A magnatab drawing board
A Day at the Airport Reusable stickers
Airport Richard Scarry book and Big Book of Airplanes hardback book
Battat Take Apart Airplane (sensing a theme here?)
Quercetti Filo Lacing Set
Crayola Dry Erase Activity Center
Quercetti Saxoflute
Magformers XL Cruisers Car Set
American Airlines Plane
Paper Plate Craft Kit
Jay Jay the Airplane DVD

He's the only little kid on both sides of the family, so he will be getting tons more, lol. I need to go clean out his toys in his room to make room for them all!

2 new pair of jeans and shirts to go with.
Carrie Underwood CD
Carrie Underwood Concert Ticket
plus stocking stuffers,-cologne, bodywash, keyring, gum, giftcards to subway,carwash, etc...

New Asics
a sweatsuit

Carrie Underwood CD
a blanket
Carrie Underwood Concert Ticket
Plus stocking stuffers-- body spray, keyring, gum, bare minerals
face stuff etc...

It's no fun not having toys to buy!

My kids have never been to a "real" concert, so I am praying they will like that gift. (They both love her music, sooooo..fingers crossed.)

Everything else is stuff that they asked for. DS works and buys himself what he wants and DD is a freshman in college so she just wants clothes, shoes and personal products.
