My sister and I went over to Target last night to pick up some medals for prizes for C's birthday party this afternoon. While there, we checked out the Halloween clearance that was marked 75% off. I found 2 ninja costumes for the boys for $2.49!! I am going to put them away for Christmas, where I'm sure they'll be a big hit. My boys still love dressing up; they probably dress up 2-3 times a week.
I also picked up a $5.50 Tom & Jerry DVD for St. Nick's this year. That wasn't on sale, but it was a good price and my boys laugh uproariously at Tom & Jerry. This was a holiday-themed dvd, which will be fun for the season.
I found a fairy wand for L's stocking for .48. It's cute, and I'm sure she'll have fun with it. I have a box in my closet with stocking stuffers, and I realize I need to go through the box soon. I think I have plenty for the boys' stockings (minus candy), but very little for L and nothing for DH. I also stuff a stocking for my sister each year, and I'm probably 75% done with hers.
I need to sit down with my list soon and figure out what else I need to purchase for my family, and then move on to extended family. I'd like to be finished by the beginning of Advent this year, and I'm well on my way to that goal!
