This Christmas will be another year that we can get by with not going big with the gift giving. Actually I hope we can always keep our Christmas gifting for our children to a minimum because I don't want that to be the focus of the season. Presents are great and fun, but there's so much more to it that we forget about if we are wrapped up in the tangible things.
Last year we asked our family to get her just one gift and money for her savings. This year we are also asking them to not overdo it. Our house won't hold it and our baby doesn't need it. And as I mentioned her favorite toy at the moment is my writing pens!
But buying for a baby girl is SO FUN so here are some things I can imagine would be on her wish list if she were making one :)
Kid Kraft Tasty Treats Chef Set-I may or may know about a bigger gift that she is getting that will go very well with a chef apron and hat! Dying over the cuteness.
Elf-One of our all time favorite holiday movies (it's up there with Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, and Home Alone for us) which holds a special place in our heart because this is the movie we went to see in theater on our very first date. Our little cotton headed ninny muggin has to have a copy!
KidKraft Nantucket Table and Chairs-She is starting to sit in chairs and sits at a table when she is at AKK visiting the big kids. This table will grow with her and I think it will be a solid investment for years to come. And it will match her nursery really well. Santa did well! :)
Fancy Nancy Splendiferous Christmas-This Christmas reading books to her won't be that effective since she can't sit still a minute to listen but they will be great to have for next year. I hope to stock up this season on some of the classics such as this one. I've heard it's every little girl's favorite!
Ducky-When Georgia Grace was born my Mamaw got her a plush ducky because that was my must-have-can't-leave-the-house-without item. Luckily GGH hasn't taken up with it quite like I did but she still enjoys playing with it. Poor ducky has fell victim to the teeth of Owen so she needs a new one!
Sponge Rollers-Why not?!? She's got enough hair for 3 babies her age and it has a natural wave to it so I think these will work well on her.
Bonnet-I have been swooning over a bonnet for her for a LONG time and just haven't taken the plunge. She wasn't wanting to wear hats at all until the last couple of weeks. Maybe she's telling me she really wants one...
Jesus Storybook Bible-You can never start too early. I want Georgia Grace to love Jesus with all her heart and I know this book does a wonderful job taking the stories in the Bible and making them easy to understand for children.
American Girl Mini Doll-My sister and I had American Girl dolls when we were growing up so it's only fitting that Georgia Grace has one of her own. These are the mini dolls that are the perfect size for her and really cheap!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We have so much to be thankful for.
