10 Things I Hope My 9 Year Old Son Will LOVE Come Christmas Morning....

I hope my 9 yr. old doesn't take a look at this post between now and Christmas!
I am trusting he will be too busy!

Santa shopping is all done here.
Here is what he chose for Mr. Tyler.
He chose things he hopes he will play with, read and have fun.
Simple & basic.
No fancy schmancy clothes for him...clothes are not his thing.
{Clothes are bought for him when he needs them.}
No expensive electronics.
No thousands of dollars spent on Christmas.
These are his stocking stuffers and gifts.
What does not fit into the large knitted sock will rest under the sock.

1. Whimpy Kid Stuff.
Tyler loves Whimpy Kid. He saw the movie and he has already read the 4th and latest book in the series. Santa thought Tyler might like the Wimpy Kid T-shirt...where you can add your own words in the bubble. Tyler loves bookmarks. And a pencil case for his desk.

2. Boys Love Facts Books....Guinness World Book of Records 2011 & Ripley's Believe It or Not.
Fascinating boy stuff. These will keep Tyler busy for hours.

3. Blokus. A fun strategy game. Lots of people we know have this game and love it.

4. Professor Noggins Games.
We love Professor Noggins games at our house. Fun trivia that can be played without having to read a whole bunch of rules.

5. A Sound Machine.
Every 9 yr. old boy needs a sound machine. This one farts, burps and screams. What more can I say? {Chapters $9.99}.

6. A Good Book.
Tyler pointed this book out to me while we were browsing in Chapters as the next book he wanted to read.

7. Peanuts Stuff.
Tyler loves Peanuts. Especially Linus & Snoopy. {Hallmark Store}.

8. Silly & Fun Stuff.
Slinkys are a Tyler approved toy. {Until the dog gets it and then it doesn't work so great.}

9. A Doodle Pad.
My kids love to doodle. Especially in restaurants...if mom can remember to put some of these sheets in her purse to take along.

10. Some Good Canadian Red Mittens & Candy.
These red mittens were made popular during the 2010 Winter Olympics. The 2011 version is just as nice in Tyler's opinion. {Is anyone else reminded of a Laura Ingalls Christmas with red mittens and a peppermint candy?}

And Santa's workshop has the gifts all wrapped up and hidden away.

I am sure that Santa' assistant {A.K.A. Dad} will want to tuck a video game in there somewhere.

There is the temptation to go out and buy something really big for Christmas.
But we remind our children that they are very blessed with everything that they have.
And Christmas is really not about the stuff.
