Our holiday decorations are up, the tree, my growing collection of snowmen, and the kid's favorite, the nutcrackers. I have a large chunk of the Christmas shopping done.
The kids are getting harder and harder to shop for, this year S had a (pink) iPod on her list. I'm a little torn - I don't want to buy toys they won't play with and will be lost in a matter of days but I'm not sure I'm ready to give in to the tween culture of iPods and cell phones just yet. In the end, they will probably each get some sort of MP3 player because their next stop is asking Papa, who doesn't say no.
