The hubs and I have gone back and forth on what to get Addie from Santa. Last year, we did a few things and filled her stocking with goodies (no worries, the grandparents made up for what we lacked) but decided that setting additional money aside in her college fund was more important (boring, i know). So, we put the bulk of her "santa gifts" in a college fund and still had trouble finding space for all of the other lovely gifts she received. This year is slightly different...she doesn't get Santa but she I do feel like she understands "new toys" and she LOVES new things...preferably, shiny...loud...and big. The hubs wouldn't let me buy her a Ferarri so she'll have to settle for this trike we decided to purchase instead:
She also tends to gravitate towards the Mega Bloks at Little Gym...so we decided she needed her own set for home:
I also scooped up some Melissa & Doug puzzles for her:
But, thats it. Lame?! I'm torn...should I buy more...looking at what we've got doesn't seem like much (sure, there will be clothes and books in addition to the above) but at her age I don't know what else she'd want. Space is a major issue in our house and with a plan to put our house on the market next spring I'm trying to manage the extras. So...I'm curious...what is everyone else doing??!! I'd love to hear what you're giving...or what you're thinking in terms of Christmas gifts this year...
