What They Asked Santa For

Since I start shopping so early I usually have just what dd asks santa for to pick up. This was the first year she couldn't be coaxed into asking for something LOL. Usually Id mention how cool a dollhouse or an art easel would be and thats what she asks for. This year I had to wait for her to see Santa and find out. How do you handle it when they're under 3? Do you pick what they ask santa for or let them ask and then go find it? If santa is a part of your celebration, that is.

Dd is three and hasnt asked for anything, ds is 17 mos and hasnt asked either, so i just get what i think they will like. I guess in future years ill still get what i think they will like but ill make sure to set a bit of money aside for december shopping when they make their lists. I find the best clothes deals in the summer, and awesome clearance on toys right after cmas.

I did picked gifts for dd until when she turned 4. She knows what she wants to ask Santa. I think now she's 7 y/o, she's starting to see the truth but I will not say anything until she ask the truth.

That's what I had to do this year, set some money aside. I have done the Christmas in July clearance sale at Target for 3 years now. But I knew this year b she'd actually want/be able to ask for something.

My dd had been changing her mind every day so I was really curious about what she would ask for. She wants to go back and see him tomorrow cause she forgot to tell him she wants a butterfly barbie lol. I can handle a barbie and the fedora she originally asked for. My friends daughter asked santa for a real unicorn LOL

We picked up things we thought she would like. Luckily she asked Santa for a "big train track & a baby sister" We had already picked up an 80 piece wooden train track for her. She is easy to "talk" out of things. We told her Santa can't bring her a baby sister but he could bring her a "bike" (we already had a big wheel for her.)

I'm not sure what we will do next year she will be 5 so it might not be so easy.
