Leap Frog Leapster2 $35.40 Now on Amazon

The price of the Leapster2 from LeapFrog went down on Amazon to $35.40.  It's available at this price right now in both green and pink.  Plus it ships free with Super Saver Shipping.  It's listed as regularly priced at $69.99, but it's on the LeapFrog site right now for $49.99 so this is a savings of at least $10. 

It is listed in the Toys R Us Black Friday ad for $24.99, but honestly I'm not up for that kind of stress to save $10.  I wish I could just decide already on whether or not to get this for my son.  I could use some help!

Free Disney Cruise Line DVD

Disney Cruise-Planning DVD

You can request a free vacation planning DVD for the Disney Cruise Line.  I'm requesting one of these for myself right now.  For our next big vacation we are going to Disney World, but I was debating doing a Disney cruise.  I'm trying to put it off until my kids are bigger, so they can do more but I don't know how long I'll be able to wait!  These DVDs are a lot of fun to watch, but beware you'll want to plan a trip ASAP after watching!

Holiday Gift Idea ~ KRE-O Transformers #HasbroKREOsets

Is anyone else in a bit of shock that Thanksgiving is a week from tomorrow?  I only have one more week before I can no longer be in denial that the holidays are in fact already here.  Santa arrived at our local mall last weekend and I missed it.  I must not have been ready yet!   Two little ones in my house on the other hand are more than ready for the holidays!  They've had their toy catalogs open almost every day and been busy circling anything and everything that catches their eye.  My daughter loves all things girly while my son is really into things he can build and construct, take-apart and change.  One great gift idea for boys just like him are Hasbro's KRE-O Transformers.  He will love the builiding process and honestly it is something that will keep him busy for a long time.  Not that the fun is limited to just him.  For a 5 year-old I'm sure this will be a toy we can work on and play with together.  Here's a few other reasons Hasbro KRE-O Transformers make a great gift this holiday season:
  • You don't have to spend a lot for them.  The KRE-O sets start out as low as $7.99.  You should be able to find one that fits your holiday budget.
  • My 5 year old will enjoy these, but older kids will have fun with these sets as well.  Some of the sets are recommended for kids up to 14 years old.  I love that it's a toy that very possibly could get played with for a long time.
  • KRE-O brick sets can be used with other similar sets you may already have at home.  I love when you can build upon things you already have and get more use out of everthing!
Watching my kids play and have fun together is one way my sprits brighten.  To keep spirits bright during the holidays we do several things together as a family.  It starts with picking up a box at church to donate items for needy families in our area.  I'm excited this year that my son will be more able to help us select items and have an understanding of the importance of helping others in need.   We had an Elf visit use for the first time last year and we are very excited for his return.  He will arrive after Thanksgiving as we begin decorating for Christmas.  Another of our annual traditions takes place the first Friday night in December.  We visit a neighboring small town and join in their holiday open house and watch their night-time lighted parade.  If you have small towns nearby I recommend checking their chamber's calendar of events.  There may be many fun ways to celebrate the holidays awaiting you. 

I hope sharing some of our holiday traditions will inspire you to create your own for your family if you haven't already.  If you do have holiday traditions I would love for you to share them on this post.  I'm always looking for new fun ways to celebrate!
