When she had picked out gifts for everyone she wanted to get a few things for herself, but I said no. I swear I wasn't trying to be mean. I wanted the focus of the outing to be on giving. If she had gotten stuff for herself that would have been the end of her attention.
When we got home she helped to cut the paper and wrap each item, admittedly with much guidance. She remembered who each item was intended for, proving that she had given them some thought!
If you are named Ben, Sara, Sue, Mike, Sam, Eric, Elise and are related to me please stop reading at this point!
Are they gone? Oh good. Now, I really must share her choices with you. Please look at the pic and use the numbered list to match the item with the recipient.
- Elise- crayon piggy bank
- Ben- mini foam darts
- Sam- helmut
- Sara- strange squishy ball
- My Dad- super bouncy ball
- My Mom-Christmas tin, it's empty
- Eric- green hair extension headband
