I forgot I've also got the DCs each a special decoration (fairy for DD, nutcracker for DS) which they can open on Xmas eve and hang on the tree. Do that every year

I am intrigued, how did the Lilo and Stitch tradition come about?! Is it always a stitch toy? <nosy>

They discovered Lilo and Stitch a few years ago on DVD and both adore it. They are both suckers for naughty cute things, which the Stitch character personifies.

The first year I found a little Stitch toy and put it poking out the top of DD's stocking, she squealed with joy, but DS was disappointed he didn't have one. I now trawl eBay for small Stitch toys in September so they can both have one poking out the top of their stocking.

They were talking earlier this week about what Santa might leave, and they both said "Stitch poking out the top!" at the same time, eyes shining.

dd (3)

I can cook book (got it cheap online)
Mister maker book (again got it cheap!)
Padded embroidered coathanger
Small pot of moonsand
growing mermaid thingy
small rag doll
tractor
gold coins
some hair baubles
draw on face book thingy

ds (4 months!)
Padded coat hanger
redistribution of dd's baby toys

They may be padded up with a few colouring pencils or stickers as we do part at our house, part at pil's and part at my parents as they all add things like pj's and pants for her and other gc from santa at their house.

Consequently will probably get something little from us like a few books (octonauts is a big favourite). I have a book worm so don't mind having a few more! (also depending on what gp's give - think it will be a trike so might have a bell or something to give with)

For me I prefer to do the stocking than a big pressie as she only wants Happyland/peppa pig/cars so spending my budget there opposed to on a pressie.
