ETA: and under the "random yet happy" file, I just happened to check back. The formal dress which they were clearing out from last year had been "sold out" but when I went back, it was in stock. Uh, okay. Snagged it and now have a nice dress for one of her dolls from Santa. Woohoo!
I just happened to wake up at 1am (my 6 year old has a bad cough). I went downstairs and was disappointed at the AG Cyber Sale. I had heard this is the day to buy but it looked like a warehouse clearance sale. I see people on FB are commenting on their disappointment so I guess this was unusual.

Hey CopperWife. I see you are in the burbs of Chicago. We are headed there in a few weeks for a quick weekend since DH will be there on business. What are some must do holiday activities? I see that Navy Pier and the Zoo have things. Anything else we shouldn't miss?

I am almost finished with my family. I have to buy DS11 something for his "read" item. I think I am going to get him some hockey magazines as my mom got him the hockey books he wanted.

I need to get DH his soccer coaching bag, training rings, and k-cups that he wants and he is all done.

I got my side of the family all done as well now I just need to work on DH's side of the family.

His side of the family is so hard to buy for because everyone just buys whatever they want whenever they want.

I should say we are in the faaaar suburbs of Chicago lol. We generally only go to the city in the summer, so as for fun holiday things, your guess is probably as good as mine. When my husband and I were first married, we went downtown and did some ice skating. It was lots of fun.

You could also check out the Daley Plaza with the Christmas Tree or the Christkindlmarket. Google for more info. There are ZooLights at the Lincoln Park Zoo like you mentioned.

In the summer, we always enjoy Navy Pier, the museums, and the Shedd Aquarium.

I'm a little upset with my DS15's best friend's mom right now. He stayed with them this weekend and she took him and his friend to Gamestop and let him pick out 3 games for his Christmas present. First I think that was a little too generous and there's no way I can reciprocate with her son, that's not in my budget, but mostly because she bought him games that he had asked me for and I had already bought. At least one, possibly two, but I'm not sure because I don't know which version she bought for him. I don't understand why she couldn't just wait and buy him a Gamestop gift card if she wanted to get him a game, he's already hard to buy for and now I don't know whether to take the games back that I bought and try to find him something else or just give them to him and let him exchange them after Christmas. Plus I really have no idea what to give her son, but I was going to budget about $30.

That's terrible, mrsbornkuntry (I mean nice of her to do that for DS, but it should have been run by you)! You'd think people would have more sense around the holidays. My MIL did something similar, she had the kids pick out a Dreamlite from the website one day. I got home from work and flipped when DH told me- DD is already getting a Dreamlite! Why would you not ask first?!

As for me, I am so close to being done. I literally have one more gift, which is a gift card for FIL's girlfriend. She asked for one to a local chain restaurant and I'm having a difficult time finding one at Walgreens or the usual places that sell a lot of gift cards. I'll check one more place and then make a special trip to one of their restaurants.

That would have frustrated me as well. I also don't like when non-family members start a gift exchange. We started this with a neighbor and finally we both ended it. Our kids get enough stuff (between us, Aunts, grandparents and Santa Claus) without neighbors giving them presents too.

FYI, littledressupshop.com is have 8 days of deals. Yesterday it was a Rapunzel dress for $15 shipped! Today it is shoes but limited sizes. Might want to keep watch. Also, they run out fast, so you'll need to jump on it in the morning. Happy shopping!

I have not read the entire thread, but have any of you with AG doll loving children seen the camper that Target has?! SO cute!!! I bought the last one at my store. My DD is going to LOVE it! Has anyone seen the food in the store that goes with it? I couldn't find that

Hmm, has your dd actually seen the Target camper? My DD8 saw it and said, "What a piece of plastic crap!" If your daughter has actually played with the real AG campers from a few years ago, this one is truly lacking.
Just a heads up for anyone who hasn't seen it in person yet.

She is 5, so I'm sure she won't mind and the price is probably a third of the AG one. She has 7 AG dolls, so have to cut corners somewhere

I just saw that Lanie's camper was $295 before it was sold out. Um, not going to happen in this house EVER LOL! My kid will be happy with her "plastic piece of crap"

I finished a couple days before Thanksgiving. Nice to be done. Now I have to wrap it all but I have no idea where to put it since we have an 8 month old golden retriever who tears everything up. I'm certain if I put gifts under the tree he will go after them. I may have to stack everything on the dining room table.
