Last year, I really enjoyed an idea from Simplicity Parenting:
good friend told me that they just focus on 4 gifts for their children:
something they want, something they need, something to wear and
something to read. This framework of 4 gifts I think really helps to
eliminate potential stuff that isn’t needed."
Under the Christmas tree for Alice in 2012

The cosleeping pillow war must stop!
