Christmas Eve - I have always tended to over think these really creative ideas for Christmas Eve gifts and, honestly, they don't go as well as I hoped they would. For example, one year, the boys got a book called "The Monstore" and each a set of supplies to make puppets. I thought it was awesome . .. the boys, not so much HA!
(In all fairness, this did become a favorite bedtime story book! )
(These puppets are actually super cool - my boys just weren't into them. I would recommend them to someone with kids that love to be creative with toys like this! )
This year, I decided to keep it a little more simple. Naturally, I picked up some new PJ's for them. I found them the week of Thanksgiving at our local Meijer when they had them on sale for "buy 1 get 1 half off" which made them super affordable. (Not to mention, they didn't ring up correctly but, when I explained it to the cashier, she was so fed up with the sales not being in the system correctly, she gave me an additional 25% off of the 15% already given so I got them for a steal!) I then got them each a set of Pokemon cards because they both love Pokemon and then I found these awesome logic games.
These games were a perfect hit. Both of the boys played with the game they got after opening it and they enjoyed the game! Yeah!
