Christmas Shopping.......Need I Say More?
In the past, we bought them blocks. The large plastic kind that look like Legos. They all love to build and create things, so it seemed like a good idea. They enjoyed them for a few months, but then found it more amusing to chuck them at each other. Little by little they disappeared into the neighbors backyard or the highway on the other side of our house....go figure. We tried the wooden colored blocks as well. (More for Fionn and Liam) Again, they played with those for a few months, until they ripped out the phone jack thingy in the wall and started stuffing the blocks into to wall....gone forever. So then it was back to the drawing board.
Sean loves rock and roll and Declan has really taken a liking to it as well. So much as he and Cian have created their own "rock band' called Tudzup. (I have no idea where Deco came up with that name) They play drums with pots and pans and use Tinker Toys as microphones. Funny right? So I decided to get Declan a real gutiar and microphone. I'm not sure how that will play out, but it sounded good at the time. I may buy Cian one as well, but I haven't decided yet.
Other than the above mentioned, I have come to a complete blank as to what else to purchase. We don't want to waste our money on cheap toys that won't hold their attention for more than 5 minutes. We will most likely buy a few Wii games (Including the New Mario Brothers) and clothes, but other than that, I'm stumped.
