@Djacks88:  that all looks amazing to me.  Our real staple gift was new PJs.  Our stockings were also very similar every year – toothbrush, toothpaste, some candy, an ornament, ‘fancy’ school supplies (that mom would never buy) etc.

I think it looks fine.  I have a 9 year old girl and 11 year old boy and games are usually a big part of the presents.

I was wondering about the game Halo though for the xbox.  That is rated M.  I would be pretty pissed off if I found out that my ex’s partner bought my kids a game that was above their age, especially one with so much violence.  But maybe their parents are ok with them playing those types of games.  If so, then I guess it’s not an issue.

Christmas “staples” usually go in the stocking and for me they consisted of a new toothbrush (usually a battery powered one), fingernail polish, lip balm, Christmas socks, and candy.

It sounds like the kids are getting plenty of presents already based on your list so I don’t think you need to buy more toys/games at all.  My parents would usually buy me some practical items like a new purse to carry and leather boots since I love boots.

@Djacks88:  ummmmmmmm do you want to be my stepmom?  LOL  DAMN those are lucky kids.

I have a stepmom….so this is coming from a step “kid”- you have done amazing.  Don’t know how they could ask for anything more.

@Djacks88:  You are doing WAY better than my step mom ever did!! I would ask them are there any Christmas traditional gifts they are use to. For us it’s getting Christmas PJ’s on Christmas eve.
