So lots of threads on kids asking for things that are just not going to happen...

so what has your child asked for that you/santa is going to bring...

my boys wanted to buy a delorean car at an expo recently but didn't have enough money... DS1 kept going back to the stall to look at it and kept it together when told that he couldn't have it... with a big sigh he said "maybe santa could bring it, but i have already written him my letter"...

i told him that santa is always watching so maybe he would see how much he really wanted it, and that we would be going to see santa so he could ask him...

well today i ordered his delorean... the exact one he was drooling over at the expo, in enough time that it will be at the top of his stocking to see that santa really does appreciate how good he was at that time.


So what is going under the tree that your kids REALLY REALLY want!

Cinderalla DVD - got it at Target when it was on special - has been hidden away for weeks.

Miss-5 has an obsession with something called Lalalopsy (excuse spelling) - I am not even sure what this is - but I have found her a cushion with said thing on it.

They are getting a new dress each, a Christmas book each, and a new backpack to wear when we go on the plane to NZ (to visit all the family / friends over there after Christmas).

Pretty much the only thing my kids have asked for this year is books.  There will be books under the tree.

A Beyblade stadium. DS has been asking for one for the better part of the year so it is finally going to arrive courtesy of Santa.

Its a lot harder to get things when the kids are older...30, 27, 23 and 16...lol

For the younger two:
DD23 wanted a model of the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars, I couldn't get a model, but I got her a Lego one instead.

DD16 wanted Nancy Drew PC games. Out of the 26 available I managed to get 18.

DD27 and DS30 as they are married I made them each a Santa Doll to put out at Christmas each year.

We don't "do" Santa or stockings, but my kids are each getting a Furby. My mom is bringing them with her when she arrives from the U.S. in January.

On Christmas Day, my son will be getting a Lego Dinosaur kit & my daughter will be getting two new Zhu Zhu pets (bringing her collection to a staggering 80+). Oh, the wonderful world of obsessions...

All through August, September and October DD (3 1/2) was obsessed with getting a swing set from Santa.  

We researched and ordered one about two weeks ago, and she hasn't mentioned it since.  Now she wants a microphone - so she can be even louder without any extra effort, and a butterfly.

We are taking DS10 (just 2 weeks shy of 11) to Fiji and we have paid for his Open Water Scuba Diving Course.

I learnt at 11 and have now completed over 1600 scuba dives and it has been a wonderful journey and my now DH also learnt to dive when we met and now my son is, we are allowed to go diving on all of his lessons with him to be there as reassurance.

I CAN'T WAIT. He has been counting down the years months and days til he has been old enough to learn. I can't wait until he finds out and gets to start classes and pool ocean work!

Also he wanted a waterproof camera, wallet and those are under the tree.

We also got him a new wetsuit, boardies, rashie, shirts and shorts from the surf shops. He will feel like a million dollars.

We ignored any electric game toy ipad ipod etc this year. The camera was allowed because of fiji.

my boys are also getting lego... this is standard gift in our house... its not a gift giving without lego involved... DS1 is obsessed and it is something he has not gone past a birthday or xmas in 3 years without getting some. all pocket money is spent on lego... the fact that he asked for something other than lego gobsmacked me!

i haven't got it yet but he is probably going to get the lego police station finally... he has been wanting it for over 2 years... i think i might need to film him opening that one!

DD1 (5 yrs) wanted the Lego Friends Cafe for her birthday, which was in September. Nana was going to get it, but couldn't find it anywhere. DD is now convinced that there are no Cafes anywhere and she isn't going to get one, so she will be thrilled that Nana has found one in time for Christmas. original.gif  She's also getting Olivia's Tree House. She has a bit of a thing for Lego, but especially Lego Friends, and those are things she's been asking for for months.

DD2 (3 yrs) just wanted a Christmas teddy bear, so she's getting on of the Kmart ones with the Santa hat.

And I've spent the last few weeks explaining to DH that the kids do not understand the dollar value of what they get, the value to them is THIS-IS-WHAT-I-REALLY-WANTED, be it a $40 Lego set or a $8 teddy.

DD has asked for a scooter and she is getting a scooter. DS hasn't asked for anything, but he will still be getting things he will like.

We are also getting an iPad as a family gift, which was not asked for, but I know is much wanted.

Well he's been angling for a trip to Old Trafford - home of Manchester United but that wasn't going to happen in a hurry was it but...

I have just received an email from Football Australia that Man U are in an exhibition match at ANZ stadium, Sydney in July and I can buy tickets tomorrow.

Thank you Universe.  biggrin.gif

They are getting pretty much what they want this year. But they are old enough to know not to ask for a gazillion toys and fad stuff.
DS17 will be getting a new laptop, he needs one for his studies next year, his first request of a rifle was denied though.
DS14 will be getting a custom made b*st*rd sword as his combined Christmas and next birthday present, this has been depending on his grades at school which considering the year he has had are pretty good.
DD7 wants some kind of scooter thingo and a wii game, too easy.

Thanks to Amazon and their much better prices than Australia!

DD1 wants "All the Doctor Who things!"

So I have managed to get her a sonic screwdriver, Tardis t-shirt, Dr Who 2013 annual and a couple of short story Dr Who books for her to read.

Not 'all the things' but should suffice.
