So, lately Christmas has been a major topic of discussion at our house. We really don't celebrate it, but in past tears we have always gotten the boys a gift a piece. This year seems to be a bit different though. DJ and Cam are older and they're being sucked into the marketing machine that is the holiday season. They want a tree, and stockings and ten thousand presents that they probably don't deserve.
I feel bad that I'm not allowing them to really participate, as I do have fond memories of trimming trees and presents from my Grandma's, but I just can't do it. No tree and no stockings here, it's totally against who I am. Now, I can see myself bending on the gift thing. I mean who doesn't like to buy their kids stuff and see their little faces when they open them up. Damon doesn't want to spend a ton of money though (that goes against who he is), but I'm hoping he'll have a change of heart by the end of the week.
Here's the shopping list thus far:
DJ- Sonic learning game for his Didj, complete series of Roscoe Riley's Rules Books, and a big Bakugun.
Cam-New Leapster game, sight word early reader books, and a big Bakugun.
Evan-Exercauser, and I don't know what else?????
