    I love your title of Christmas movies that won’t terrify kids. My daughter does not scare easily but she’s also 4 so we haven’t exposed her to a lot. But I kind of forget how intense some of these kids movies are!

    Anne, I’m nearly finished with my shopping but you keep adding to MY wish list – ha! 😉 These are all so great; I love bookish gifts and treats.

    One of my goals this year was to have a simple Christmas, with less toys and more meaningful gifts. I had a great idea that I would make a “my favorite things” box for each of my kids and fill it with things they love but rarely get. So far I have added things like microwave popcorn(we usually air pop), 4 jars of Nutella(which I got on sale for 49cents!) and scored a free Venus razor with a coupon I received in the mail(we usually use disposable ones that I get free with coupons). I really think my kids will love this idea and the best part is….it’s soooo cheap and fun to fill:)
