Oh we surprised the kids big time yesterday! Rob’s mom sent us some spending money as a Christmas gift and yesterday, on the way home from a birthday party, we pulled into Toys-R-Us instead of going home. THEN we got to tell them they could actually purchase for themselves some things that have been on their wish list for a while. What a joy for all of us, Rob and I got to say “yes”and their faces were just lit up!
Zion chose a scooter and a cute basket (thanks to the scooter being on sale). She’s been wanting one for so long.
Gideon and Elias wanted the same thing so we/they pooled their portion and got them a Batcave add-on to go with their Geotrax train set and they each got to choose a smaller item. Gideon picked a stuffed Angry bird (a green one of course, his favorite color) and Elias chose a two-pack of Cars characters that also go with the Geotrax. The love of trains in this house is not going away anytime soon that’s for sure.
Gabe looked and looked but didn’t find anything he’d been wanting. He perused. He browsed. He checked out a lot of things but ultimately decided to shop elsewhere. So after we went home Rob and he went back out and checked out GameStop. Ooo, we love it there! And Gabe SCORED! GameStop was having a sale. Gabe got two game guides and a set that came with a game guide, a game and a Lego toy. Wow!
You can see how happy they are. Well, Elias may be a bit overtired but he’s happy on the inside! Thank you, Grandma Marlene!
And because I’m overdue, puppy shots:
They are HUGE and they are characters and so sweet, like giant teddy bears and they were a couple of days shy of 4 months old in these shots. More puppy photos soon. :)
