Christmas shopping...why bother?

As most parents are at this time of year...I'm wondering what to bless my little lovely's with this year...but after snapping a few pics recently I'm wondering why bother.
They seem to find enjoyment out of the strangest...free things!

Like this from the kitchen window of miss 6. Yes she is playing with a grapefruit and a stick!

backyard trees

Neighborhood stray cats

fun in the sun with a hose!

You'd think we didn't have a house full 0f toys to play with!
So this Christmas I might just think simple.

Love it Jacks! So true - you should watch a documentary called 'Babies" - it proves basically that babies and kids are happiest when left to just get on with it - with what ever they choose to get on with it with, be it a stick and a grapefruit or a tree. I'm giving Minna cardboard boxes and the beach to play with this Christmas:)

haha - so true! My kids often ended up playing in the paper and boxes! Now I know what to get Miss 6 for her birthday!! ;)

soo good!! Carl's family doesn't really do 'Christmas' as such - just a nice big lunch and day at the beach - so I'm thinking of maybe making them all toffee apples this year :-) Making stuff is fun (as long as you start early enough!) and so thoughtful :-)
