That time of year again

Yes it's birthday season in my house and I am sorry to say that I was BAD about posting my wish list for my 2 year old so I am stepping it up by posting the 5 year old's list early. These are wants (hers and mine) or just good ideas for you and your too.

  • I have been thinking that a non-tangible gift would be interesting – a star named after her or a tree in Israel etc.
  • Puzzles – LOVES these. 50-100 pieces
  • Magazine Subscription – she has Highlights but would love National Geographic for kids
  • Any of the Creations by You kits available at Target – illustrate your own story; make your own plate etc.
  • Chapter books from a series like Junie B. Jones or others
Lillian Vernon has a nice list of less than ordinary gifts -

Best in political show

I am loving the political fever that comes from living in a swing state. I mean LOVING it. Being from NY there was never much doubt about how we all swung, but here - well let's just say some have drank the "5 letters for scary" Palin cool-aid.

I just ordered, received and wore my new Obama t-shirt. The husband and kids go them too.Mine is a fabulous Mamas for Obama 2008 version. The kids got I (heart graphic) Obama and Obama 08 (varsity looking) respectively and the husband, well his might be the best! The back reads - YES WE CAN To justice and equality, to opportunity and prosperity, heal this nation, repair this world, YES WE CAN! I got them all at who had a fantastic selection and does as well.
