    Yes I have heard of it or at least something like it.
    Check Borders, I'm not sure if it's considered Hillary Duff but there is a disney studio kareoke cd that has some songs on it from Lizzie McQuire that Hillary stars in.

    You know what your 2 yr old might enjoy Stargazer? The Leap Frog Imagination Desk. We bought that last year for kiddo's Bday and she LOVES it. She already knew her alphabet but now she can associate the sounds with each letter. The replacement colouring pages are all free online (when you register your product) We were very happy with it. Now that she is in pre-reading stages I think My First Leap Pad is going to be a huge hit.

    We have the same 'rule' in our house. Our daughter writes a letter to Santa and she is only to ask for the one gift that she really, really wants. Santa is much too busy to be making hundreds of toys for each child, besides, it's greedy.
    This year she asked Santa for 'Cheer' Carebear and some Barbie lipstick. I went overboard and got her a set of 6 - only because I thought the deal I was getting was too good to pass up (I was wrong but thats another story) Just about everything else she will be getting will be stocking stuffers (besides the games)
    A cheque came in the mail yesterday from her Great-Grandma, she's never sure what to buy. She sent $100 (which I think is too much but GG wants to see her money enjoyed before she 'passes on' as she calls it) We are going to buy kiddo a new table and chair set and the rest will go into her bank account.

    Here's the set.



    Sorry for being long winded, realitycrazmom I can relate to your gift-giving practices and I totally agree with them.

    Happy to help, I know how important getting the right gift is when you are the Aunt.

    Hmm... I'm not a parent (just a tad too young, lol) but I bought the Evanescence Tribute CD and "The Redemption of Althalus" (By David Eddings, love his books) for friends.

    Ahhhh yes, when you are the 'cool aunt' you really have to deliver.

    I bought my 3 oldest nephews their first 'cool big kid bikes' when I was the 'cool aunt' aka the Aunt with no childern and tons of money.

    That was an excellent post, Realitycrazmom. I'm getting quite distressed at the commercialism of Christmas that's running rampant anymore. I have actually noticed that it's getting tangibly worse each year.

    I heartily applaud your idea, and I tried to keep my wishlist to a minimum this year, as well.
    Thanks Mantenna!

    I work weekends at Wal-Mart and you should see the gluttonous habits of some parents. I have been working in the Layaway department and it is absolutely insane! There are people who will lay away 3 cartloads of items and they have only one or two children! I also see a lot of people buying the (very expensive) Power Wheels and a lot of big toys along with it. (X-Boxes, RC Hummers, televisions, etc.)

    The one that really gets me is kids screaming and bawling in the cart because they usually get a toy when they come to the store, and just because it's so close to Christmas, the parent has said no. Just because they are cute, breathe oxygen, and live on this earth doesn't warrant a toy at every turn. IMHO

    To Duxxy and karna68:
    I just figured that I'd rather start early than later with the limits on presents. Then it's not a big surprise or change for them, it is something that we've always done. It's SO HARD when they are bombarded with commercials at this time of year though.
