I've already picked both kids up Rodys on sale awhile back. I'm not sure what else I'm doing for anyone.
I need to get on it though!

Re: Thinking Christmas?

It's never too early for Christmas! I think your list looks good.

We've already got the boys their Santa gift (shared). A friend had this power wheel used but still in great condition for $60, so that's their big gift. They'll get some pjs, stocking stuffers and maybe one more thing, but that's it.

I try not to go way overboard since my inlaws go crazy every year. They get so much stuff between my inlaws, us, my parents and aunts/uncles....

Re: Thinking Christmas?

I need to start figuring this out. DD1 will be 4 on Christmas day and DD2 will be 2 a few weeks before. We will probably do a big gift for them to share for Christmas and then stocking stuffers. I'm not sure on birthday presents yet. I think I want to get DD1 a doll but I haven't decided which one. I may have to get DD2 a small doll too because lately all I hear from her is "Me Too!"

I love that you & your DH have toys to pass down! DD#1 has a rocking horse that belonged to my DH and a doll cradle that was mine.

I am also a big fan of the Schleich animals.

What ornaments do you do? We've done the ones from Wallace Wood Ornaments, they have bear families and DH's name is Bear.
