I wanted to take a moment to make a list of gift ideas for the girls, as it was requested by some grandparents! Note: IF you decide to get any of these things, PLEASE tell me right away so that Santa doesn't duplicate anything!!! :)
All of a sudden she's asking for every single toy in the Toy Story movie. Since the big, interactive ones go for about $30 - 40 a pop (CRAZY!),
(Update: Who knew that I'd find the bigger ones at the Disney Store for LESS than Amazon!? $20!)
Claire has carried around her little teddy bear for years and continues to do so. She'd LOVE to get some matching clothes for her and her teddy! Or even just more clothes for teddy since she steals doll clothes to dress her.
I always want to increase her book collection with age-appropriate, educational books. A friend and colleague of Huz's showed me this site where I found a bunch of excellent choices, such as:
The Best of Girls To The Rescue
The Magic Nesting Doll
I haven't even seen this yet, but Huz took her to see it when it came out and I know it has an excellent, strong, independent message for young girls.
SANTA GOT CHARLOTTE THIS!
My little one is now 19 months old and could really use practice with her language and fine motor skills. With that in mind, I would love for her to have:
Touch and Teach Turtle
Remember this old school toy? :)
For Huz the gift is easy: that he KEEP HIS JOB!! Or Amazon gift certificates for his huge library and/or XBOX 360 game collection, or cool dress socks, or nice ties for work.
For me? Anything to promote relaxation and freedom from stress! Free babysitting, spa gift certificates, candles, bubble bath, an electric blanket (our room is the COLDEST in the house!!), warm slippers, massage chair/wand things, etc.
