Melissa and Doug Terrific Twenty List and Giveaway

WINNER ANNOUNCED:  Congratulations #7, Julie :)  
You have one lucky nephew!

I am full of pure excitement for Christmas.  BOTH of my girls "get it" this year.  The excitement is going to be tangible... the temptations to go overboard are already here :)

I love the RULE OF FOUR:  
something they need, something they want, something to read, something to wear.

HOWEVER, I uh, well, uh, ummm.... I can't stick to that!

I WILL limit myself and keep things simple.  But I mean JUST LOOK AT THIS GIFT GUIDE... how can I choose just one?

I just had my professional consultant (Hazel, age 3) look over the gift guide.  As the oldest, she's the easiest to shop for and so I need an AWESOME gift (or two or three) for Heidi, age 1.5.  

We chose this: (ok, I'm pulling the mama card.  She couldn't choose and kept going back to the stickers and I am a little sick of stickers.)

 Ok, perhaps the Magic Mine Wooden Train set is for slightly older kids.  But in this house... we ALL play with the toys and this one will be a hit with those aged 1.5 through 35 ;)

How about it... YOU WANT IN?  Enter everyday on the Melissa and Doug Facebook page as they give away each item from their TOP TWENTY!

Even better, Melissa and Doug are letting me give a Magic Mine Wooden Train Tunnel to one of my readers!

I'm keeping it simple this time.  SIMPLY LEAVE A COMMENT TO ENTER (one comment/entry per email address).
Winner will be chosen on Nov. 30th at 9am EST using random.org.
