Making a list...checking it twice

We have been working hard on our Christmas lists over here! ;) Wyatt and Sloane are pretty good about making lists and sticking to them. What can I say...they know what they like?!?!? LOL! Mark and I try to split up our gift buying into a few months so it's not so much ALL. AT. ONCE. Does anyone else feel me? Wyatt and Sloane are entering into the age that Christmas is SO FUN! It is totally magical and I love it! Today I am sharing a few things the Schmitz family has on their lists.

For Wyatt:

Hatchimal - I know, I know...dumbest best toy ever but so cute! This is the first year a super popular toy has been on their list. Thankfully I already have this item purchased so 1 down 1 to go. Blah!

Basketball Goal - Wyatt has really shown interest in Basketball lately. He is playing on a school team after the new year and can't wait. He got a basketball a few months ago but needs a hoop. ;) This one has also been checked off. Phew!

WiiU - This item will be the death of me...he has been asking for this since last March. Actually it all started with a certain game and is only available on THIS system. It is on the top of his list. Let's hope Santa is feeling really kind Christmas Eve.

Lego Dimension (New Ghostbusters) - Wyatt and Mark absolutely love this game! Wyatt got it last year for Christmas and it's totally not something the newness wore off from. I mean, the gaming people (I don't know what to call them) totally know what they are doing when they create these things. Wyatt had all the ones that were currently out but a few weeks ago new characters were released, just in time for Christmas. This Ghostbusters one is super special because it opens a new world!?!?!? LOL!

For Sloane: 

Hatchimal- Go figure...both Wyatt and Sloane want one of these things!!? I have Wyatt's checked off but Sis's....not so much! I am on it though- I hope. ;/

Barbie Pop-Up Camper - This thing, I mean really!!?!?! I wasn't a big Barbie player when I was little but Sis LOVES them! Barbie come in a close second after her baby dolls. She played with this camper at a friends house over the summer and it has remained on her list ever since.

LEGO Cinderella's Castle - Wyatt isn't the only LEGO lover around here. Sloane has been eyeing this beauty since it came out. We have been waiting for her to be a bit older before she gets it. Christmas time is perfect!

Easy Nails Spa kit - So as I was writing this post I noticed this item is out of stock. ;( I am hoping this is just online or for a short time. I didn't think the nail spa would be a hot item. LOL! Sloane thinks this is the greatest thing. Something that paints her nails by it self!?!? Thanks YouTube!

For Mark: 

Bose Soundlink Color - We purchased one of these for our beach vacation this summer. Somehow Mark and I constantly BOTH wanting to use it as the same time! He takes it EVERYWHERE and I love having it at home during the day as well. It would be perfect to get him HIS OWN for Christmas. ;) Then we wouldn't have to share. Ha ha!

Twofaced Polarized Sunglasses -

LEGO White House - I know I mentioned Wyatt and Sloane loving LEGO's but they didn't come by it naturally. Mark loves building them as well. He has shown interest in a few different ones and the White House is one of them on his list.

Golf Balls - Mark plays golf almost every weekend. He doesn't use a lot of balls, thankfully but Christmas is always a good time to stock up. He is kinda picky and golf balls aren't cheap. ;)

For Me: 

Hallmark Disney Silhouette -  I have had my eye on this for a while. It's so pretty and we are Disney lovers over here. I like how it's simple but has a total fun side too!

Sperry Top Siders - I love these duck boots! I wanted to get a pair last year but never actually purchased them. There are a lot of options out there but these are my favorite for sure!

Cross stitch people - Laugh all you want but I am loving my craft time lately. A few weeks ago a friend taught me how to cross stitch and I have been a busy bee! I really want to splurge on this awesome book but it's too close to Christmas to do such a thing. ;)

Toms - I am in desperate need of a new pair of Toms. I think I need a plain neutral pair to go with my uniform...Ha ha! My uniform which consists of leggings and a cardigan. ;)

What about you? Do you have special things on your Christmas list? Ideas for kids, teachers, or even husbands?


  1. So, I know I have always said only facials for the rest of my life but let me say I do LOVE those duck boots and they are high on my list as well. Just thought I would tell one elf.

  2. I LOVED my Barbie camper as a little girl and I actually still have it. Now... I just need a daughter, lol.

    1. Oh how fun! It's so sweet to keep old toys. ;)

  3. My list is fitbit alta (pink/gold), and some new towels because mine are shredding. And the hurricane spin scrubber, because I am now that boring adult.

    1. No such thing as boring adult, LOL!!!


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
