A few of my favorite things...

 
 
 1.  Sam's school
So many fun activities, like their annual Turkey Trot.  It was really cold Saturday morning, but
we had a ball running, reading the "motivational" signs and chasing the school turkey.
 
 
 
 
2.  The $1/$3/$5 Spot at Target
 The boys were so excited to find these adorable starter chopsticks for only $3 each.  They are
a bamboo/plastic combination with removable silicone animals.



 
3.  Your Santa Story


Have you heard of it?  I really wanted to mention it last year because it's so great,
but the company was busy preparing their site for this year's launch, so I had to
keep this all to myself:

 
 
How cute is that?  I love that you can tailor it to whatever you want, even
have Santa share some exciting/good news or directions to one last, special
gift. Your Santa Story is completely up to you, and makes for a fun surprise
on Christmas morning.
 
Because of the special attention required for each disc, quantities are limited.
 
 
 
 
4.  Whiskers on Kittens
 By Christmas tree light, of course!  (That one is officially Molly's tree.)

an honest review. I did not receive anything from Target or Sam's school.***

The turkey trot sounds fun! I love the chopsticks. Thinking I may have to make a Target trip for stocking stuffers. Loving Molly staking out her tree. She seems very behaved with it. I'm mentally preparing for ornament smash 2012 here with Beezus. :)

love those chopsticks - fun! Do you have a tree up already girlie?

Meri said...

Hi Dina - has Molly ever tried to climb her tree? When my kids were little, one of the cats made an attempt --- and knocked the tree over. Even landing on carpet, there were quite a few ornament casualties and one seriously traumatized kitty.

Krystyn @ Really, Are You Serious? said...

My girls would love those chopsticks...we might have to go pick some up!

And, we are no where close to putting up a tree, but all of yours make me want to...just a little bit.

Wow, your tree is up already! I'll have to get ours out soon. :) We have similar chopsticks for the kids, but have been lazy about using them.

Great series of shots, love the Turkey Trot run... it's wonderful that they are encouraging kids to be active... and the kitty under the tree, we have a new kitten too and hadn't thought about 'the tree' until seeing yours! Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #57!

Loved the race pics :) I see that you are shameless about your "fake" tree--To hear Mr.4444 talk about my idea to get one, you'd think it was illegal! :)
