I have a hard time justifying spoiling a 12 month old too awful much. We managed to put together a few things that I think will be perfect for her this year, while minimizing the “stuff” and excess toys. The Grandmas were on their Christmas game this year and found some pretty darn cute gifts. Julia is a little snuggle bug, so between a doll to cuddle, a sleeping bag to wrap up in, and her very own chair for lounging, she’ll be a happy little girl.

Mitchell’s stash seemed to grow and grow, so he is going to be busy unwrapping on Christmas morning. I personally love the classic toys, so Melissa and Doug and Green Toys are taking up a lot of this list. Their toys are so darn cute. And on a side note, am I the only one who has an impossible time draining the squirter bath toys and always end up replacing moldy ones after a month? We’re saying goodbye to those once and for all with some serious bath toy upgrades this Christmas! I’ll take credit for the sneakers and the bath toys, but it was Daddy who found those adorable books and voted for the baby-sister-whacking sticks.

I promise we’ll make up for the lack of Christmas present distribution fairness, Julia. I know you’ll be claiming half of your brother’s presents as your own, anyway. And someday those cowboy boots will look adorable with a pretty little sundress. Now that I’m almost done Christmas shopping. Almost done decorating. Almost done cleaning. I’m almost ready for our family to start rolling into town this week! We are so excited to have everyone here under one roof!
