I shop all year, at least for stocking stuffers. I also keep an eye out for sales on what the boys will be wanting, such as Lego sets. I like to start looking at the sales when it comes to video games, especially when they start having BOGO offers.

Are the boys still into Legos? Those things really do seem to be the toys that will last them the longest. Ian really likes the Bionicles and the Ben 10 sets.

He's not too much into video games, but we bought him a 3DS because he wanted the Star Wars game. More of the 3D titles should come out soon, so I'll probably try to find out if any interest him and pick up one or two.

The latest things around here are the Beyblades and Dagedars. It seems like they're over Bakugan. Maybe.

I have been basically shopping online and the Shopping Channel! It's easier for me. I don't like shopping anyways. :) I think I will get my stocking stuffers from the dollar store.

MIL usually finds some cool stocking stuffers at the dollar store. I think I'll check there this year myself!

I don't think I've ever bought anything on the Shopping Channel. Do they have good deals?

None of my kiddos need anything so instead of more toys or clothes we're planning a trip to Disney. The twins will be 3 in March and we want to go while they're still free. ;-) I really think Bella would absolutely love it, and it's only a 3 hour drive for us.

That sounds like a lot of fun. Has Bella been to Disney before?

No Jen, not yet. I haven't been since around 2004. Even without "travel" expenses per se the tickets are crazy expensive. We wanted to wait until we knew she would enjoy it. She's five now so I think it's time. :-)
