    The remote controlled cars are a possibility, thanks.

    We take them to an amusement park every summer, they are all closed here for the season. There's no way to guarantee that the same kids would be here next summer, in fact most probably would not be.

    Delf, that is a possibility too. Two kids have them, but I could do something else for them.

    Well, after all the sales...
    Pajamas, twinkle toes slippers, and a pink BB Rifle! I gots a way to go!
    I found a cool fiber optic butterfly for her room that I have to get ordered ASAP!!
    And an electric guitar that uses an infrared light instead of strings, you just hold a handle, she wants it. That's going to be it. I think Santa is going to Mimi & Pops house again this year!!

    Here is my 10 year old's wish list. I'm not sure what she's getting yet.

    A gerbil habitat (gift card for the gerbil)
    An English saddle
    Lego My Friends riding camp/stable
    American Girl Horse
    American Girl Doll Clothes
    Amazon Gift Card (for her Kindle Fire)
    Acoustic Guitar (with case)
    Camcorder (like the Flip)

    ETA - When asked why Santa couldn't bring the gerbil too, she replied:

    Well, gerbils are good at escaping and I'm afraid it would chew a hole in the box and cause Santa to wreck. All I can imagine is my gerbil sitting on top of the blazing wreck of Santa's sleigh! I don't want to be responsible for ruining Christmas!

    Oy Vey! I went a little nuts on the Holiday shopping weekend.
    Online of course… I’m not that crazy. I was busy farm sitting as well and far too tired to make the rational decisions I should have and my kids made out like bandits…

    First, the 4 legged one (The horse that is, not all the other 4 legged critters, their presents are the best hay I could find this year!)
    Ok, Digby-
    New horse blanket, SMB boots. Easy Boot Trails, and some odd assortments of horsie extras…. (for him....not me, I swear)

    The 2 legged kiddo-
    A Galaxy tab2 7” (I decided an e-reader/tablet combo would grow with him better than just a reader, plus being half off was too good to pass up.)
    New electric blue violin (been taking lessons for 2 months now)
    Tab2 accessories
    Violin accessories
    Big TV.
    Ok, my friend got a new 60” flat and wants rid of her 45” or 50” (I dunno… but big) box style TV and is giving it to me. It is a monster, but how could I say no?
    I love having friends with older boys to pass clothes and the “not cool anymore” stuff down to us… it‘s the only way we survive I think.
    Well, that and the semi-annual used book/games sale at our small library where I stash stuff away and also clearance sales throughout the year.
    I’ve already put dibs on the Wii but that will be a few years yet… so I have to come up with some creative ways to explain why Santa forgot a new Wii this year.
    Ideas anyone?

    I’ll pick up a few small things for kiddo so he has something from his “list” and then it is on to finishing the apple butter, crocheted items for friends, and starting on the fudge orders, plus farm sitting again….<sigh> ….is it Jan. Yet?

    Ok, I confess......the reader/tab is really for me. I cannot live without new books and reading materials, but my house is small and full already, so I figure I’ll disguise it as a present for kiddo, but use it for myself to hold my horsie/kiddo safe reading materials but have some fun kids stuff on it too.
    That'll work... right??
    (Shhhh, he will never know the difference…. I hope.)

    Well I gave them all the choice of a $100 gift. I am getting them clothes too, but this is their big gift. They all chose sneakers, the worst part is that I have a pretty redneck kid at the moment, and these are the ones he chose.

    When I was a kid I was asking for just a live horse every year (which never happened). :(

    I'm not getting anything for my son, because he's just coming 8 weeks old. So I don't think he'll care anyway (although I got bunch of those rattle toys and new cloth for him on black Fri).

    My dogs won't get anything except some treats they like. And neither my cats (they don't care for anything). Horses are getting some new tack, but I doubt they'll appreciate it.

    I got some presents (box of chocolate and hat/scarf set) for the daughter of the cleaning lady in my office. And my "X-mas" adopted kids will get remote helicopter/soccer ball/video game/batman hat with gloves (for the boy) and books/kitty hat with gloves/shoes/baby doll/puppy toy (for the girl).

    I love shopping for kids BTW. So much fun!

    Well the American Girl is en route. My grandma is giving me sewing lessons and a machine so I can make clothes for said AG doll. I've ordered a bunch of patterns and ordered some awesome fabric from Mood. DD will be unwrapping the material as a gift as well, I think she will be pretty excited about it since it is the store they shop in on Project Runway (she loves that darn show - farmgirl with high fashion tastes I guess?) as long as she doesn't give me an AG Avant garde challenge we'll be just fine ;)

    So I just found out that my SO's grandmother and mother both got my daughter a Furby. Great, there will be two of those evil monsters in the house.
