12 Days of Christmas: On the Fifth Day of Christmas…

On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

5 gifts for L
4 festive letters
3 photo shoots
A 2 piece no-sew blanket
And a new spot for our Christmas tree

With Christmas quickly approaching, L has been working hard to ensure her list for Santa is just right.

Here’s what she’s hoping for and here’s how I did with finding the items for cheap:

1. A Lalaloopsy doll

I don’t know what the appeal is with these dolls.  We never watch the show at home (or read any of the books) and they kinda creep me out.  L wanted one though and I lucked into finding one at a consignment shop for $8.50.  I couldn’t believe my luck considering these dolls retail for about $40!

2. A hockey stick

This one is definitely M’s influence.  We found a floor hockey stick at Canadian Tire for $6.99. The price was right so we also got one for E so they wouldn’t fight over it.  Santa is also bringing the girls a net to use with the sticks 🙂

3. The Little Mermaid DVD

I got this on sale at Amazon for $27.  The movie was on tv just this past weekend and thankfully L love it!  We also got the Little Mermaid Duplo to go with it!

4 Pink and purple trains

I got a wooden train set at a warehouse toy sale a couple months ago for $11.  The trains aren’t pink and purple though so I may have some painting to do 🙂

5. Fuzzy socks

It really is about the simple things in life!  I found fuzzy socks in the discount section at Target just yesterday.  Can’t go wrong for $1 a pair!
