For the girls:
A few months ago I took them to the American Girl Doll store at Tyson's Corner. They'd just started new earning charts for AGDs, and since we conveniently have a store close, I took them to oogle at all the dolls, accessories, beauty salon, etc., and also the price tags for those things. While we were there, though, I noticed the DVD's were on sale for $5, by far the cheapest thing in the store, so without knowing much about them, I picked up these three.
Stripey leggings for Hazel and Ginger, cutie shirt for Poppy
Lots of food stuff: Pop Rocks, Animal Crackers, M&M guy, and a hot chocolate snowman went in each stocking. The older two also got those candy cane Pop Drops with Tootsie Roll centers. The Nutkao snacks didn't fit, so I will save those for Easter baskets, just 3 months away!
Everyone got a new Pony, and a cutie finger puppet, which I stuck on the end of...
Smencils! Watermelon for Ginger, Orange for Poppy, Root Beer for Hazel. And these slap bracelets I picked up on our beach trip.
A plethora of hair things, to replace all the lost/broken clips and headbands from the past year.
Socks for Poppy, since I'm still squeezing her into 6-12 month size ones. Everyone deserves to have socks that fit.
Keychains and floss
That about does it for the girls. In Ed's stocking I gave:
- a bag of his favorite granola
- movie passes
- a new SmarTrip card (enough with scrounging for change in the morning)
- prepaid carwash card
- a bottle of his favorite hair stuff
- dental floss
- cinnamon Smencil
- a photo mousepad of the girls
- a balloon animal kit
- toothpaste tube squeezer
