When Santa Sticks you With the Bill…

Happy Christmas to all!

Look what Santa brought! Lil Tykes Activity Garden, made for ages 6-36 months. Hopefully she will get lots of play time out of this one.

$59.99 from Costco.

I had full intentions of leaving it at that. She won’t remember. She doesn’t care. But with a 16-year-old Helper Elf in the house this Christmas, Babystar ended up with a few more gifts under the tree. She had twice the amount of presents to open as the teenagers. And it took her fifty times as long to open them. Well, drool on them and excitedly bang on them and play with the bows while the tall people in the room all ‘helped’ her open them.
