    DS is 7 months old, we got him one of those personalized my teddy's with 'my first Christmas' and his name and year. DH wanted us to get him something from each of us so I thought of what would be handy for me and got him a bop bag knowing it would keep him entertained for ages. He won't really know what is going on so I'm preparing for the wrapping paper to be his favorite gift of the day! Ha ha. We have a huge family and we are moving interstate so I didn't want to get too much as my mum alone has bought him about 5 gifts!

    The kids are all getting Lego or duplo, books, pj's, flavoured straws, bubbles, stickers and a mushroom growing kit to share.

    DS is getting a proper bike for his 4th bday on the 30th of December so that will be his 'big' present this year (+ a bowling bday party).

    Christmas he is getting: Sneaky Snacky Squirrel board game (want) / Peter Pan book (want/read) / snow coveralls and jacket (wear/need - were going skiing in February). Keeping it simple this year. We will buy a real Christmas tree next week which he is really excited about.

    He will get presents from family - hopefully not too much!

    Those are the ones I want but I can't find them over here! We saw Santa today and luckily ds1 asked him for a dinosaur toy, I was worried he'd switch back to his original thought of wanting a wiggles big red car which is impossible to find over here and OZ, apparently a collector's item

    Oh what/where are the headphones from? This could be a good idea for DS

    DS- 2.5 will get heaps of Thomas stuff. I got some off gumtree. Will just put ir in a Xmas box and seperate the rest for his bday for feb.

    Doll, playdoh, crocs and hat.

    Dd- I have no idea!! She asked for a yoyo but I could only find them at Kmart and they look dodgy. And she swings things around as I suspect ASD too like DS.

    We are mvoung interstate so nothing big once we move we will give them big presents tramp/swing set for Easter etc
