When I was young, I had a fascination with dollhouses. There was something about the combination of a miniature world and pretend play (especially when I got to pretend I was a mommy) that was just enchanting.
I had a friend that had an amazing dollhouse that her father had built and that’s all I ever wanted to play with whenever I went over for a play date. So I’m sure you could imagine that I wanted a dollhouse of my very own.
For Christmas, when I was 8, that’s all I asked for – a dollhouse.
And I was blessed with it on Christmas morning that year. It is one of my most memorable childhood Christmas mornings ever.
We don’t go overboard with gifts for our kids on Christmas. We try to focus more on giving than receiving and keep Christ at the center of our Christmas celebrations. So the gifts we do give to our kids on Christmas we try to make meaningful and memorable for them.
I’m usually an early shopper when it comes to Christmas gifts, but this year I haven’t even given much thought to what we will give all of our kids for Christmas. We are in the process of moving across the country (we leave next week), so that has taken center stage in our lives right now.
Thankfully, Kmart has a Fab 15 Holiday Toy List to get my wheels turning and start thinking of what to put on my Christmas gift list for the kids this year.
