Actually, I think it's just plain smart shopping. I'm almost done with my Christmas shopping and I haven't gone inside even one store! Woohoo! Amazon has been my friend this year! I even signed up for a free one month trial of Amazon prime so I could get free shipping that was even faster than what I would have paid for. My stuff starts coming in 2 days! =)
The really cool part (although I'm not sure it gets cooler than NOT going through the mall with a double stroller plus a 5 year old for hours on end), is that I bought some really cool things for the kids that I don't think I would have gotten otherwise like this super cool educational game called Wild Planet Hyper Dash:
and this magnetic toy that is the greatest I've seen in all my years of raising a boy:
and a number of these drawing books for Julia:
Of course I had to get something for myself (well, technically this is for the kids if you think about it):
And then I noticed this cd:
and realized that I never bought it when it came out! And I got it for only$2.40! I LOVE Hillsong kid music!
These digital bookmark timers are so great that I bought one for each of the older kids. We can use them for recording John David's school reading time or we can set it for a certain amount of game time or whatever else we want to do! I can't wait to get these!
Please hurry, Mr. Mailman! I love mail!
