Lego Ninjago Jay's Storm Fighter

I've heard from Mica that he wanted Lego Ninjago Jay's Storm Fighter for Christmas since October. It was that along with a game system, a full sized drum set, a Lego Marvel Super Heroes the Avengers Quinjet Aerial Battle and some kind of Ninjago book. This Ninjago Lego stuff is all over Mica's mind. He knows the character's names and what kind of powers they each have. He and his school friends play it at recess.

Santa can't afford all that stuff. Nor does he want a full sized drum set to be in our house. Mica thinks Santa can magically make anything appear. He also thought that since he only wanted a few things Santa could for sure get them all. Daddy got after Mica because he heard him telling one of his friends that he is getting all those things for Christmas. I kept telling him that Santa knows what Mom and Dad want him to have.

Mica got the first two things on his list. The rest of what he got, were other things that were not on his list. Things we knew he'd enjoy.

I made an appoint to have the boys donate a few unwrapped toys to the Salvation Army box and they both gave money to the bell ringer outside the store we were at the weekend before Christmas. They seemed happy to do both of those things. I was expecting to hear, "I wanted to keep that toy." But I heard none of that. The only thing I heard was fighting over who was going to put the toys in the box. They each got a turn.

I was expecting to hear on Christmas Eve or on Christmas Day from Mica, "I didn't ask for that!" But he didn't. He was happy with all his things.

Even though he seemed greedy before unwrapping presents; he turned around.

Here Mica is with his Lego Ninjago Jay's Storm Fighter:

My Mother used to tell us we could ask for 1 big thing. It worked for us, but not sure it would work today. The kids now have a lot more than we did.

He must have been excited to get that under the tree!

My eight year old plays the drums and has been taking lessons for over two year - and even I will not get a drum set for him. Not that I don't think he's serious, but it's wicked expensive and I'm afraid that as soon as I buy one, he will want to stop playing.

Pierce also got 2 things from his Santa list, as Santa was on a very tight budget this year. It's good for kids not to have every little thing they want.

He seems very happy with his new Legos! And yes, Santa surely does know what the kids will appreciate under the tree.

We took our girls shopping for Toys for Tots. I told them to pick out something they would like to receive for a gift, then got worried they would complain that they wanted to keep it too. Thankfully that didn't happen, then we were able to stop and think back to the gifts we donated and how much joy we brought to a few little girls that morning.
