I just found my (adult sized) ds16 a really cool star wars shirt at Walmart...marked $8.97, but when they scanned it, it was $5. A nice little gift or stocking stuffer if anyone has a SW fan and needs one!

Completely done with one kid. When you buy an AG doll and a few outfits, the budget is gone fast!

No Kidding! LOL!! My dd decided she didn't want any AG stuff this year,..kinda makes me sad, but she has a lot of stuff already and she is reaaaaaally wanting an Ipod,..so we are probably gonna be ordering that this week.. I will have to order some Legos and would like to time it so all of it will come in while we are gone and my mom can get it...she's housesitting...that would work out wonderfully!!!

Yes it is! Which is why I can NEVER stick to my budget! And this year, I have gone WAY, WAY over. NOt so much money wise. I've done good shopping all year and grabbing stuff on sale, but "stuff" wise. I just like a ton of loot under the tree and all set up for Christmas morning. I'm pretty sure I love the presentation WAY more than DD does. Although, she's always happy and giddy over everything!

Funny story. DD wants Julie, so she's ordered (free shipping) and upstairs in my secret hiding place. Also on the list was Julie's car....which is $300!!!!!! I reminded DD when she was making her list from the AG catalog that Santa can't bring it all and then I slipped and commented about how expensive the car is and of course, her comeback was something along the lines of Santa's elves making it and not having to BUY anything. UGH! She's still not getting it. It's too big for Santa's sleigh!

My son also asks for things that are waaaay outside my budget. He uses the old "Santa" card too. He's also noticing all the toy ads and catalogues coming to us. I told him Santa has a warehouse just like Target and those pricey toys may not be in stock!! So far he's buying it! Lol

That car was on my dd's list too. Oh well, she knows by now we don't always get everything we want. She is so excited about getting an AG doll. This is the first time she has ever shown any interest in dolls. My MIL came over and she showed her the catalog and told her about how much she wanted an AG doll for Christmas. My MIL told her she was being ridiculous and she would never play with any of that stuff. She made a big stink over it and told my dd she was definintely NOT getting her any of that stuff for Christmas. She wasn't asking her Grandma to buy any of it and I pointed that out to her but it really hurt dd's feelings. She keeps telling my dd she shouldn't ask for any more toys because she is 10 now.

My DD9 NEVER touched any kind of doll, EVER, until she asked for an AG doll about 2 weeks before Christmas 2010. We got her one of the Target knock offs to see if she'd really play with it and she did. She and her friends play all the time and she quickly figured out hers was a "fake", but she still plays with her. She then got Kinani for her 8th birthday in 2011 and then a look like me doll last year from Santa. This year she wants Julie and I'm good with that. I say let them be little girls and play with toys as long as they want too! They grow up way too fast. We don't do a ton of AG accessories because I find stuff cheaper and still made well elsewhere, but she is getting a few things to go with Julie.

I think Grandma needs another topic of conversation. My dd will be 10 in a couple of weeks. She still wants AG stuff and toys. What is wrong with letting them be in children as long as they can?

Exactly! DD9's (will be 10 by Christmas) list is full of AG stuff and Lalaloopsy dolls. Her best friend, on the other hand, gave up dolls years ago. Each child is different and frankly, I'm sure in a year or two she'll be no longer interested in toys and it'll all be electronics or clothes. For now, I'm just glad that she still wants to play and use her imagination.
