    Amakaye, another great option for dress-up clothes is your local Goodwill! I never would have thought of it, but my brother-in-law went there and stocked my daughter up on some "dress up" clothes for her 2nd birthday last March! Leave it to a single guy to come up with something so cost effective! :)

    SOrry to jump off topic, but
    Now I'm curious...is it the kind people smoke? And if so, is marijuana a huge problem among the young people in your town?

    I wouldn't think of it as an upgrade-it's a completely different device. I would think it compares more to an iPad than a regular e-ink kindle. I don't have one though-I just know it's looks like a computer screen and not like the other kindles.

    We just drew names in our family, so I can't wait to buy something nice for my person, (my youngest son!) He is kind of hard for me to buy for because he only likes electronics and he has everything and then some!

    My group of friends stopped exchanging gifts about 5 years ago and started an ornament exchange instead...each year on Thanksgiving Eve we draw a name of who we are going to get an ornament for....I love the name i got this year and got the perfect ornament! We have such a blast, its useful and usually less than $10-

    Is it really fair hunting "High" birds? :lol:
    Doesn't sound very sportsmanlike. :lol:
    Do the birds go off and eat some Twinkies™ after being in the Marijuana? :whistle:

    Oh and could you give me the address I have a friend in the medical Marijuana Business He will be glad to rid you of that noxious weed.:lol:

    Ok, I'm kinda sorry I posted here! Never mind! It was just an offhand comment! No, people nor birds smoke this! It grows everywhere here-it is a weed. That's all. We're not potheads, nor are our children. It just so happens that many birds and animals are attracted to it.

    I just wanted to point out what my favorite gift of the season is.

    I'm sorry, kc, I didn't mean to imply anything of the sort.

    It's just that I've never heard of anything of the sort around here. I asked out of curiousity, nothing more.

    How cool would it be if there are sprinkles, cup cake wrappers, and other similar stuff in her stocking??

    Oh, and a Thank You note from Santa for the special goodies???

    I'm stumped on my dad. Every year, he says he has everything he wants and needs. Every suggestion is meat with a "nah, I have one and it's fine." Grrr...

    BF is getting some music DVDs. Bro is getting a sweater and this soap: http://www.etsy.com/listing/85889767/winter-ale-vegan-cold-process-beer-soap - he's really into home brewing. And BF's mom... hmm. She likes knick-knacky stuff, so I'll hunt around for something for her.

    cher, how about a restaurant gift card? Or a pack from one of the food delivery companies?

    One year I got my dad a box from Hickory Farms-- all little noshy sized foods for him to snack on. He loved it!
