DD (9) - Pokemon cards and plastic sheets
DS (6) - Pirate shiP and K'nex set

They are each getting a book. Not sure what we will put in their stockings. They already have way too much stuff!

This year I had put back extra money for our extended family and they decided not to play dirty Santa on both sides of the family, so I am splurging on my boys a little more.

Sorry you're broke, been there done that.

We got my seven year old a new computer has the big gift from Santa

And a new mossy oak BB gun from us as the big gift


And his grandfather is buying the first "real" gun! A 410! Granddad normally waits until they are older for the guns but he's worried about his health so he wanted to go ahead and get it! Thank god my son understands gun safety!

 I am totally slacking this year - we got DS a bunch of video games and these super awesome (supposedly) video game headphones. Better be awesome, they were like $40. Plan to get a bunch of Barbies and clothes for DD, not sure what else there. And DS2 is only 3, so he's still up in the air.

maybe for you, my 3 & 5 year old have iPads and iPods, my 5 year old has a laptop and my 3 year old just asked for one.  

we were going to get the them the mini's as their big gifts, but my MIL said she wanted to get them a Fire.  so we arent going to upgrade their iPads since they are getting a new tablet anyway...

i know plenty of 3-8 year olds with their OWN ipads... its the world we live in....

I find posts like this to be attention whoring. I make good money.... I don't need to title a post about buying my 12 year old an iPad. Which I think is a ridiculous waste if money.

I was going to get him a laptop, but decided on the iPad, he's homeschooled so he needed something.

He's wanting a new gun, but not this year, I'm getting a new gun lol.

I got kindle fires for both boys. The best part is I paid for them with credit card rewards so they were free!
