In fairness, Jack and Molly's big gift was brought to our house a few weeks ago, so there wasn't much to do in terms of gift-getting.
They absolutely adore it. I am so happy that we have something to play on outside! It satisfies their monkey-like climbing addiction, and there's nothing sweeter than a completely, slap-dab worn out toddler at nap time.
In other semi-related news, Amazon Prime is the best and worst thing that has ever happened to us. Especially during these massive lightning deal sales. Every.Single.Day, there is something on sale that we just need. Some items, like the kids' balance bikes, were smart, sensible buys. We were planning on buying them for birthday gifts, so getting them 50% off a few months early makes sense. However, the other 15 packages that have shown up on our doorstep in the past few weeks are of more questionable necessity. I mean, Paul bought himself a bicycle. It's a great bike, and he's wanted one for a long time, but still. Darn you, Amazon Prime!
If I don't get around to blogging before Christmas, I hope that each and every one (and I mean one, since I probably have no readers left...) of you has an amazing Christmas. I know at we will!
