Hello, and welcome to the group!

My son is 12. He enjoys hanging out with friends, playing hockey, and playing video games.

I'm getting him a variety of small stuff for Christmas. He hasn't asked for anything big. I got him a team jacket (his hockey association) with his name on it. We're going to get him something else, but haven't decided what yet. His stocking is going to have candy, iTunes gift card, and a beanie hat.

My boys are 11 and 8.  The oldest is into Nascar and football.  The youngest is into action figures and pirates - Ahoy!  They both love playing pick up games of baseball, football and basketball and just running around outside.  They're into video games as well.

For Christmas they are getting some Star Wars figures and vehicles.  A bunch of small stuff that I can't remember.  New luggage, lucky boys right there. lol  Sheets for their beds too, hehehe.  The oldest is getting a new MP3 player, the youngest is getting some PlayMobile stuff.  They both are getting Legos.  I can't remember anything else at the moment.

My tweens are 10 (will be 11 on Wed) and 9. The oldest enjoys reading, playing video games, talking on the phone and just doing stuff like that. My younger one likes drawing, learning things on the computer and other stuff like that. They both enjoy playing the computer. For Christmas they are getting digital cameras and nerf guns. The Oldest is getting a UGA pillow pet and some other little things. The younger one is getting a turtle that lights up and shows the constellations- he loves turtles and science.

Lexie is 12. She loves cheerleading--she's on two squads--and gymnastics. She also loves to read. For Christmas, I'm getting her an eReader (I haven't decided which), an alarm clock dock for her iPod, and Pretty Little Liars Season 1 on DVD. I still have a little left in her budget, so I'm not done yet. :)

Do you care to share what the item is?  It is nice to hear what other kids are asking for, so that we can get ideas for our own kids, family, and friends.

The best Christmas gift of all is the presence of a happy family all wrapped up with one another.

How cool is that turtle.  I'm sure he'll love it, I know that my boys would.  We love star gazing.
