The kids’ main gift this year was getting to flush. (Just kidding. Sort of.) But I also got them each an instrument t-shirt. (If you’re interested, you can find them on Amazon. They’re made by ThinkGeek.) I saw them promo’ed on one of the morning news shows, and they looked fun. I tracked them down and they’re weren’t too expensive, so I decided to make a t-shirt band. I got Weston the guitar shirt, Ross the drum shirt, and Morgan the synthesizer shirt. (The parts that play the music, and the battery pack, come apart from the shirt so you can wash it.) They also got radio control cars, and that was a lot of fun, too.
With kids this age, Christmas and birthday presents can get really boring and hard to buy. I didn’t have that much money to spend this year, so I gave them each their favorite kind of present (some cash) and TOYS, and it was a lot of fun–for everybody!
