We don't write lists until Thanksgiving. However I suggest anyone who wants a tip on how to curb the list to something manageable read this:

It is a journal entry I wrote several years ago.

Haven't bought anything but imaginex is going to have alot of our money by 2013. We go to thrift stores and good will in the non birthday Christmas times and find play sets and my kids LOVE them.
My boys are 3 7 and 8.

I have a couple small things -- doll carriers for them to wear, a doll, and a video game. That is probably all they will get...Santa is bringing a Disneyland trip :)

My mom buys each kid a "big" gift at Christmas. DS is getting an Andriod Tablet, DD1 is getting a camera, haven't decided what DD2 will get yet.

As for us, we give each child 1 Santa gift and 1gift from us. The older kids know that Santa is not real, but the little one still thinks he is. The big kids know that if they tell the little one that Santa is not real, they will NOT get a Santa gift. DS usually gets LEGOs, DD1 likes art supplies, and DD2 likes dolls.

I am done!
I'm due Dec 1st, so I had to be ahead of the game this year!
My kids are asking for the 3DS again this year so Santa is bringing them each one with a new game.
Other than that I got them 5 presents each plus their stocking.
