not quite on the list.

Have you ever gone into a store after all your Christmas shopping was done and were shocked to find that wonderful, perfect, gotta have it gift?

It happened to me the other night at Costco.

But alas, Lincoln's Christmas present shopping had been completed days before. So I ended up doing the next best thing.

Having been divinely inspired, I suddenly recalled that he still had birthday money set aside from way back in April. I realized that we had saved it for such a special purchase as this...

I love that you had the self control not to buy it for Christmas.
Remind me again how you shop. I loved your lists for everyone and I know the grandparents buy too, but do you buy a certain amount or certain number of items per kid?
Sorry if you answered this already!
