DD1: A pony.

DD2: A puppy or a bunny.

Why the creatures lol? We will get a puppy but not until after we've moved. Highly doubt a pony is on our agenda.

Sorry to disappoint girls!

ETA DD1 also wanted a new house of our own - we got that!  eexcite.gif Moving on the 1st of Feb. So one very very big wish came true!

I-anything.  Minecraft.  DS's.  X-box.  Wii.  Awful mummy.  They spend so much time looking at screens, I don't want to give them anything that will encourage it.   I'm not against them watching TV or using the computer, but they do it enough already.  I always give them outdoor stuff.  Get the hint - get outside!

Copious amounts of barbie stuff. She already has enough for about 10 children.

She is however, getting the fijit (sp?) she so dearly wants.

ETA she also wants a cat, but she asks for one on a regular basis, not just for Christmas lol. Not ever, ever happening.

Trash Packs. I looked at them, but they seemed ridiculously overpriced and the sort of thing that are soon lost. She's still talking about them *sigh*.

DS1 just wants a bike. Ironic, considering he can't actually pedal.

DS2 is too small to know what is going on but would be happy if we let him eat watermelon all day biggrin.gif

DS is not getting a much-coveted XBox... every year he misses out, don't know why he keeps asking. It makes most of the rest of his list moot; Black Ops, Black Ops 3 etc.

DD is not getting an i-anything either. No iPad, iPod, iWant, or iNeed.

I got lucky in part this year. Little one wants a fairy book that has the same title as her name. Other one wants a Lego tie fighter.

Santa has happily obliged. And chucked in a few extras.

They also want their uncle to come from overseas to hang out with them for Xmas.  Santa can't help with that one.

Lego x a million, he is getting a little bit from us and some from my parents and his cousins.



#19 Futhermore

Posted 24 December 2012 - 12:55 PM

My daughter is getting nothing on her list because it is all too expensive - motor bike, pool, i-phone - not happening.  She's getting season 3 of Glee, book 3 in a series she likes, a dress she pointed out in the shops, a light shade and cushions for her room she's been asking for.  Perhaps a bit of a disapointing haul but she has everything else affordable/practical and couldn't think of anything under $300.

DS got everything on his list because it was actually do-able - a skateboard, skylander's giants plus an extra character, flippers.

A yoyo, and the stupid Santa told DD she would get one aswell, but we haven't gotten her one and don't plan to either, I can see it being swung around too much.

DS1 wanted Minecraft Lego, so had a look - I am not paying $50 - $100 for that tidy little box and when I know he could create his own. He has already made his own Angry Bird Lego World, Wall E Lego and a number of others. I told him if I see it on special than I will buy it for I am

DS 4 years keeps asking for Trash packs. They look rubbish and cheap so I got him a little set for his stocking. He also asked for a transformer. I bought him the 3 big ones and my mum bought him a little one so he has everything he has asked for plus a lot more.


DS aged nearly 2 hasn't asked for anything. So he's easy.  wink.gif
