We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

I'm thinking of getting my husband a Keurig for Christmas. But I'm not a coffee drinker, and have no idea of which model or what features I want. Anyone care to give me some ideas?

Aliceacc - I don't drink coffee either, but I just got my husband a Keurig from Kohls with a 30% and then I am using the Keurig rebate that is out to get $30 back.

Any opinions on the two - likes, dislikes, etc are greatly appreciated! Thank you!
My son got the original Leappad last Christmas and he turned 4 a few days later. My daughter was 2.5 at the time and she can play it and still does. Some of the games have suggested ages, so you can just look for the ones geared for younger children. It has held up well even when they carry it around by the stylus and drop it 50 times.

I am still trying to decidedif I should get my daughter the pink Leappad2 for Christmas or get the new Google tablet for kids. She could also just use my sons leappad...he is asking for a DS now...

And does this apply to the online store too, or just the physical stores?
I'm not sure about the online store, I go into the store at our mall.

I ordered my dd12's xbox with kinect today. Walmart had it for 249.00 but it came with Disneyland kinect game and the usual adventures kinect game. When all said and done 270.00 for the console, sensor bar, one controller and two kinect games. I was holding out until black friday but Disneyland Kinect made me do it !

Man, I am so tempted by that Disneyland Kinect game but figured I'd wait until the kids' birthdays so little closer to our trip. And Disney Store just called me to tell me Stuffy the dragon is back in stock -- woohoo! DS is getting that and Chilly and DD is getting Lambie and Hallie -- from each other! Eh, what they wanted so it works out well.

Thank you so much for the response! It's good to know that the device held up to being dropped - do you have any sort of gel skin or anything on it to protect it? Or do they just use it as is out of the box?

I know it has been a year, but do you remember any of the games that you daughter enjoyed then? Or games that she really likes now? All of the games I have seen so far are age rated starting at 4

Google tablet - Are you referring to the Nexus 7? Or have they come out with another one that is specifically meant for kids? That might sway me away from the LeapPad

Thank you again for your help and advice!

We do not have anything extra on the Leappad, just use it right out of the box. The google tablet I was looking into is the Tabeo. I don't think it has been released yet. It will be initially more than the Leappad, but there is a large number of aps I believe you can download for free. You have to pay for the Leappad aps and games.

When I get home today, I will check to see what games we have. She really likes the coloring/painting game which I think came with the leappad originally.

I got my dh a Keurig a few years ago and it was a big hit. I got it for him to put in his office but we ended up using it right away and its been in our kitchen ever since! I got the B40 model, it the basic bigger one. There is a smaller one that only holds enough water in the resevoir for 1 cup. I like the one we have, but I only use it for coffee or hot water so I don't need anything to fancy.

Its been a few years since I've ordered from them but IIRC the boxes are plain and the sent from address does not say American Girl.


I've decided to get my 2 dses Ipod touches. My youngest has asked for 1 for the last couple years, and my oldest has been interested but has been okay with not having one. Now I just have to wait for the best deal, hopefully Target puts out another 10% off coupon and runs GC promo again this year.

All of the kids and the Husband has provide me with their lists - I didn't even have to ask. So now I can start to plan what to get and watch out for sales.

That's how I remember it too, but wondered if someone has ordered recently just to be sure.

I'm sure your DSs will LOVES the Ipod touch. My DD got one for her birthday in July and she and her friends use it a lot. They dance to music, make videos. I got her a cube too from amazon that will play the music AND charge the Ipod at the same time. It changes colors too. They use that in her room and when they want to dance outside.
