The boy's are getting hand made blankets for Christmas and some stocking stuffers this year but if I were going to get them some new toys (they both just had their birthdays so we have gotten plenty of toys form family!) I would get these...
Easel on Costco.com it's a really fancy one but I would also love the one from Ikea!
2 sets of these Wooden Letters by Melissa and Doug

The "Red Flower" is so lovely, but I also love the Button necklaces (especially the Black one) - they are so unique!

You make me smile everyday!! You are so feisty! Everyone who knows you has a nickname for you because you are just so likable! I love how you swoon when you see baby girls and how you stick your chest out when guys are around! I love your love for the outdoors. When ever we get outside you quietly walk around collecting flowers and rocks and bringing them to us! I am so grateful that you are my son and that I am your mother! You add so much fun to our family! Happy Birthday Sweet boy! I love you.

Holiday erasers, tiny silver bells, and tiny little presents! We will use them for counting, sorting, transferring and whatever else we can think of! My amazing mother(in law but she is more like my Mother then she is "in Law") Picked up the eraser for the boys and I grabbed another pack so we would have 24. Ramble, ramble, go get some:)

On our Science and discovery table we have our pretend Grocery store. We've been having a lot of fun. When they want to play I get down a bowl of pennies and we take turns shopping with our grocery basket and being the clerk. Caden loved being the clerk and saying things like "Would you like a bag?" or "Have a nice day!". We use the pennies to pay. We say "that will be five pennies please" and then count them into the clerks hand:) So fun and it is helping Caden understand the use of money to pay for things we need and some counting practice. Drake hasn't wanted to play yet but I hoping as it is out for a while he will invite me to shop:)

I wanted to do something that Caden could be really involved with! He and Drake helped me make six different kinds of play dough, scented lime, lemon, cherry, orange, grape, and glitter blue! We rolled them into balls and put one of each color on a long strip of plastic wrap. Then we twisted them and tied them in a ring.
We stuffed the bags(dollar store) with red shiny stuff(dollar store) and then put a ring of play dough in each one.
We used glue and glitter to make gift tags with the first letter of each child's name.
We also bought one inch dowels and I had Nate cut them into 5 inch pieces to use as rolling pins. I forgot to take a final picture but you can see them in the background of this picture of Jack with Grandpa Packer:)
