So I talked to both my kids today and oh boy. I found out what they would like for Christmas.
A Disneyland Annual Pass
Bloodshot eyes goggles from Willy Wonka
Harry Potter Quidditch goggles
20 Questions-Harry Potter version
Captain Barbossa pendant
The Dark Knight on DVD
I want to get Keith the bloodshot eye goggles and the Dark Knight DVD. But I asked Alex if there was anything else and she said no, she just wants the AP. Man, a deluxe one (which covers the whole year, no blackouts) is about $389! The one just below that with a few blackouts is $269! The ones that Jack and I have that means you cannot go to Disneyland on Saturdays and most of summer is $174.
And you know she'll definitely want to go on weekends with her friends.
I tried to explain that this would be the ONLY gift she would get and she said okay.
But I have no idea how the heck I can make that work. The only one I could try for would be the $269 one, but jeez even I don't have that status. I am stressing out here.
On a plus note, I told her about the shoes from Grandma and she was so excited! So there you go. At least one present will be a hit.
I just wish she had told me sooner. I would saved up for it.
:crosses fingers: Somehow I'll figure it out.
