The Christmas List

You have to appreciate an organized kid.

One like our precious Scary Baby who gives you their Christmas list in OCTOBER.


The “Flip Over” is the best part…


Knowing full well we have already done the guinea pig thing x 3 including one that was pregnant. And we are never, I repeat, never doing it again.

Then we get a revised list at the end of November.


I especially appreciate the ease with which she includes items like…

cell phone, ipod touch, camcorder and laptop

…blended in with the reasonable items like board games, blendy pens, earrings and an art kit.

This kid is nothing if not smooth.

She is also TEN and will not be getting any of the aforementioned high ticket electronic items.

PhilBillPaul and I have investigated the cupcake maker since it made both lists and we have learned that it’s not the cupcakes she wants. She just wants the fondant.

Michael’s has fondant. I’m working on it.

Two more shopping days. Do they have blendy pens?

What’s on your kids’ lists?

    That was about the cutest list. Did you tell her to try writing to Santa????
    Okay, just a little joke-I have several of those lists from years past that my kids wrote. In fact, I think there is a current one on the side of my frig from my 21 year old son! Some things never change. You call that organization? Hmm…nice way of thinking of it, I guess. x o

    I used to put a Mac on my list for my parents until I was 26. Still haven’t gotten it! My son made a list for his grandparents and on it were Nintendo DS games (he’s 8). I asked him what he was doing since he doesn’t have a DS. His answer, “Santa’s bringing me one for Christmas. REALLY, I was that good!”

      @Nancy–She’s way over the Santa. The magic ends early with three older siblings. I think writing your Christmas list BEFORE Halloween is super organized. 😉

      @Joanne–Buy the Mac for yourself!!! You’ll never go back! That is some major DS pressure and one very optimistic son. Too cute!!

    I LOVE Scary Baby’s list!! She must keep a day planner to have been so organized to make her list in October!! Love the revised list, too, and the way she circled the high priority items! lol
