Christmas time is here!
I am in the mood now! It suddenly came to my memory that I always go to Ross after I've shopped everywhere else and wonder why I didn't go there first. Plus, I was looking for Barbies from the older movies and they often have the "not quite as new" varieties. Did I ever hit the jackpot! Let's just say that Santa is going to be very good to two little girls I know, and while Mama splurged just a little (upping the budget to nearly $50 total for one of them (gasp!), it is going to be sooo worth it! I walked in and right there at the front was a Cinderella Mega Bloks castle with Cinderella, Prince Charming, and a dance platform that spins and plays music. Rosie's in love with princesses and "Cinderella, Cinderella" is her new favorite. I got it and an add on set for just $24! On to Anna bug. All she wants are Twelve Dancing Princesses. She's got the books, DVD, and five of the twelve Barbies. They are not to be found, but online and rather expensively. But I just snagged the palace! Woohoo! I can't wait 'til Christmas, I can't wait "til Christmas! Lest you worry, the boy is well taken care of with a special Star Wars transformer, some Magnetix, and a couple of Dollar Tree build a bear - compatible outfits. I even found a pack of eight large jingle bells at the Dollar Tree to make the requested bells from Sants's sleigh. You know, the ones that you can only hear if you believe in Santa.
