We keep it small - everybody gets Something you Want, Something you Need, Something to Wear & Something to Read. And, it must all fit within our $100 budget + $25 for stocking stuffers. We started this a couple of years ago and agreed (again) this year that it takes pressure off of trying to show your love for each other with expensive gifts, and, honestly it makes us be super creative! 

Amos got a super cool flashlight / lantern that he keeps in his bed with him and this Map book. Mikey has really enjoyed studying the maps with him before bed every night. He's already learned that there are 7 "con-ti-nets" and can tell you what each of the continents is. 

Solomon got a pair of super cute "rocky-crocs" for next summer & a funky Patagonia jacket. 

Two of my very favorite gifts to give this year were the book I made for Mikey of our Adventure on the AT & the copy of The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe I found last minute that matches the collection we started when Amos was born. 

Merry, merry Christmas from the FOUR of us!
