December 4, 2014

swookieFrom my friend Jill in SF-

snap circuits  (Jill- these have been on my list the last two years- finally bought tonight!)
shoot the moon game  (Jill! My mom bought this for Will this year- we grew up with one- love it)
for older kids, I saw these wooden catapults you build, and trebuchet
also last year we put tickets in the kids beds one night before xmas- then when they went to bed they found out they were going out to see xmas lights in their pjs, with popcorn and hot cocoa.  little stay up late treat 🙂
From my friend Amy in NC:
Henry (8 1/2) and I tested out a Mookie Swingball set at our local toy store and had so much fun playing with it, he’s asking Santa for one this Christmas.

My parents had a 1970s version of these, and I can’t stop loving this Williams-Sonoma version or giving them as gifts, with a last initial engraved on them:

I’m giving one of my favorite books of the year as a gift: “All the Light We Cannot See,” by Anthony Doerr.

My husband and I have been collecting these annual Metropolitan Museum of Art snowflake ornaments since we were married 13 years ago. So beautiful.

I love these state hand stitched tea towels

We bought one of these adorable Swaddle Dolls with a blue minky “swaddle” fabric for our newborn niece/cousin.  (These are adorable Amy!)
 ————
From me: Bought this travel backpack for my three year old for our trip to Chicago and added some dolls to go along inside- and these yoyos for my boys
Believe it or not, there will be a gift giving part 7.
