Christmas Gift's for the Kelly Boys
Well after finally rounding up all the presents that I had bought for the boys over the past couple months I came to the realization that they are going to be a little bit spoiled this year. Oops! Well this is the first year Kyler is really going to understand what is going on and Deagan is getting mostly diapers but so I wanted to make it fun and I really hadn't realized how much I had gotten for the boys until I pulled it all out of all my hiding little spots. That being said a lot of it I still bought second hand or on sale as neither one of them are going to know. Most toys we take out of their packaging before Christmas and put it in a plain box so that they can play with the toys right away anyways so who's to know if it was a second hand toy or new. :D So I thought I would put together a list of all the gifts we got for the boys so that maybe other parents could get some ideas as to what to get their kids or just to take a boo at what we got Kyler (2.5 years) and Deagan (7.5 months).
Okay, so firstly we wanted to start a tradition with the boys that they will get to open one gift on Christmas Eve and that it would be pj's. I also for as long as I can want to get them matching pj's as I think it's really cute when they are young. I picked these pj's as it was something that they could still wear after Christmas but they are made of a micro fleece so they are super cozy. The next tradition we have is that on Christmas Eve the each get an ornament to put on the tree Kyler has a little Nutcracker and Deagan is getting a Baby's First Christmas ornament.
For Deagan he is getting a lot of cloth diapers for Christmas. I had two custom made diapers from Luv Earth Cloth Diapers, one Tweedle Bugs Diaper, and then I got a Grovia Shell in Cloud with some extra inserts and Boosters.
These are the Luv Earth Diapers. One is a pirate themed diaper and the other is Rudolf diaper. The Rudolf diaper I am going to have it prepped already so that he will get to wear this Diaper on Christmas. I'm sooo excited for these ones to arrive and to see how they work for us :)
The blue one is the Tweedle Bugs diaper we are getting and the Grey one is the Snap Closure Grovia Shell that we picked. We then got 2 packs of the stay dry inserts and a couple of boosters. The Luv Earth Diapers and Tweedle Bugs are diapers we have never tried before the Grovia is just adding to our Grovia stash.
Deagan then also got socks, an Infantino activity ball, a Leap Frog Learn & Groove Musical Table (the activity ball and table I got second had for $5), a large Giraffe stuffy for in his room, a laugh and learn alphabet express train, a wooden block puzzle, and some onesies.
Both boys also are getting a Scentsy Buddy. Deagan is getting Ollie the elephant (as he has the jungle/safari theme room) and Kyler is getting Ribbert the frog (as he already has a favorite stuffy who is also a frog) and both are getting the Christmas cottage scent to go in them. These I got on sale for their buy one get one free deal (which is why both boys are getting one).
For Kyler our major gift we are giving him the Leap Frog Leappad 2. He loves playing games on our computer, taking pictures with our camera, and playing videos and games on our phone so we thought it was time for his own piece of technology. We then got him a soccer ball, a soft hockey stick and ball set, a remote control car, and a Jake and the Neverland Pirates sword. I then picked up second hand a fire fighter outfit, a new never opened giant sticker book and puzzle (both were FREE), a bead and wire toy, and then a fleece blanket for his bed.
So yes the boys are getting spoiled but I honestly didn't realize that I had collected so much over the last couple months. Hopefully the boys will enjoy everything they get as I was really excited about getting the items.
Thanks for Reading and Merry Christmas :)
