As if there isn't enough shopping going on for Christmas we like to add a little more. Tonight it was...
 This is one of my favorite activities for this month. I love watching the kids get so excited to buy something for someone else. I love watching them sneak around the store trying to stay out of the way of other family members and I love seeing what they come up with.

Rob had Emily and he got her a Littlest Pet Shop.

 I had Rob and he got a pair of socks, a pack of gum and tootsie rolls.
Taylor had Austin and he got a geyser tube and a Pez dispenser. 
 Austin had Taylor and he got him Mighty Beanz, twizzlers and notecards.
I got socks and gloves from Emily.
It's not much but we love our traditions. Emily asked if we could raise the amount to $10 next year. We'll have to see about that.

I've always loved this idea of yours! We thought about doing it this year and just ran out of time. Maybe next year. I am sure my kids would love it.

That is a great idea! Maybe when ALL of my kids are old enough to understand what $5 buys. :)
