I Think it was a Hit!

Picking out Christmas gifts for Ty was not very easy for me, this year.  I knew he needed wanted a new DS.  And I thought he'd like the Hess truck (based on his reaction last year) but coming up with a third gift was a little more difficult.  He's going through a pretty cool "make believe" phase and he likes to build stuff with blocks.  He also mentions space and the moon and the stars and such...but actually pin-pointing some of that into a third gift really was tough!  Sort of on a whim, I bought Ty a "Chest of Action Costumes".

Honestly, I was a little nervous about it, but figured it wouldn't hurt to have boy-ish dress-up clothes around the house.  The cute little "chest" had four outfits: a Policeman, a Fireman, a Race Car Driver/Pit Crew Boss, and...an Astronaut (that might have been the selling point).  The costumes themselves are a bit cheesy, but they came with helmets, handcuffs, gloves, fire extinguisher, etc.  With all that extra stuff, a boy's BOUND to love it, right?

Absolutely!
(And for all of my friends that say I'm "Super Mom" because my house is always clean...take a look in the background of this picture...my kitchen's A MESS, y'all!)

And I was right about "the extra's" being a hit, too!

I didn't, however, foresee the added advantage of them including the triplets in their play.

(Eli did NOT want to take this off...)

That is great :) We bought that for our kids too a year or so ago and they loved it. I think it's great that boys can have dress-up clothes too. We all know every kid needs a DS.

And I love you even more for your messy kitchen!! Thank the Lord it isn't just me.
