What gifts have your kids asked for this year? I'm feeling a little bummed that my kids have outgrown all the cute "little kid" toys like Little People, pretend play food, etc. It's almost all video games now :(  I am excited to surprise them with the Wii U since they think I haven't been able to find one in stock. Wink

I have a 9 yr old and 4 yr old so still have the little kids toys and to be honest I like the bigger boy stuff so much better from a clutter standpoint. My oldest wish list included a 3ds and skylanders giants (ok those add to clutter) but the rest is video games with a few odds and ends. Maybe its because I was never a video game person but I always think if he gets a game and his brother gets a toy its going to be an issue. DH laughs but it is still a toy and I guess I can't wrap my head around that. The other thing he wanted was the mindcraft game its online and DH wanted that to be the santa gift and I like no how does THAT work. Doesn't santa "MAKE" these toys lets take a boy on the verge of not believing and slap him in the face and say YUP NO SANTA. DH thinks I am crazy and maybe I am since the Santa thing is new to me but on the other hand the more I reevaluate the toy thing I am thinking maybe 2 wish lists of video and computer games won't be so bad. May I finally get my living room back?!?!
