DS is 5 and the requests for toys seems to be increasing as he gets older, so we've started the Xmas list already! It's on the fridge! We've told him no more toys until Christmas time; he is very happy with the list idea. Oh and he knows that he can't get everything on the list...thank goodness!!!

I started a list and was very excited. DD needs a keyboard; she takes lessons and the one she had is now too small. She is only five keys from the top. Youngest DD wants a V-Tech Cyper Pocket. Works out good because we already have a lot of the games. DS hasn't really asked for anything. I have two special items picked out for each of them. They only get three gifts for Christmas. One is what they want the most and the other two is what we want to get them. Now, I am not too excited; I am now worried because of DH is now laid off.

No, and I'm hoping we don't! Owen decided to make a "birthday list", which was cute at first. Until I realized that any list Owen makes must be followed to the T. We did oblige for his birthday and did everything on his list. Not for Christmas (main reason being- I have a lot of stuff in the closet already hiding for Christmas. LOL). Owen has autism so there are certain ways things need to be done. If he makes a list, that's the way it needs to be done. If anything goes wrong, meltdown city and there's a point of no return.

You know, I asked my DDs if they've been thinking about Christmas and their Christmas list and both my DDs said there really isn't anything they want other than some Rainbow Magic books.<br><br>
We'll probably do some books, jammies and walkie talkies <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

my kiddos arent even talking about what they want yet! However, I have started shopping..I think every year I say that I will start the shopping early and never do until now! My hope is to get each of the older kids a nintendo DS and then get them smaller gifts to go along with that..this year is flying by!

We've finished our shopping for the girls. We are VERY minimal though. They each got one outfit, 2 books, and a game. My oldest is getting a bead set and my youngest a wooden doctor kit. I also brough some paper dolls and turned them into magnets so they do do that on the fridge.<br><br>
The only thing dd (4) asked for was a princess umbrella -thats all she wanted. Her grandparents are getting it for her. She's pretty easy to please.
