It’s Friday and that can only mean one thing…this post is the latest installment of my #fandayfriday series!

If you haven’t read any of the posts in my series before, this is my weekly chance to tell the world about five things that I love as well as throw a little #FanDayFriday love to another blogger at the end of this post.

This Christmas we’ve spent a lot of energy building up the Christmas spirit with:

  • our Elf on the Shelf adventures
  • donating toys to a charity that has one of those bins at Karate
  • helping set up for “Doughnuts with Santa”
  • doing a gift exchange at school
  • a cookie exchange at the preschool
  • exploring ways to make Christmas mean more.

There was a quick pause to celebrate my 40th birthday, but now it’s time to get to the shopping and the presents!

Here is a list of what’s in Santa’s sack this year for all the members of our family:

My son is addicted to trucks and trailers.  I think it’s all things motors really.  Boats, skidoos and seadoos are also an obsession of his.  As I write this post, he’s playing with a new dinosaur truck and trailer set he got for his birthday in November.

Hubby decided to step it up a notch and bought him a Speed Muscle Remote Control RC Buggy 2.4Ghz 1:16 Scale Truggy Ready to Run w/ Suspension Toy (Green Color).  They are a little above his level when dealing with the remote, but they are great fun to watch.  He’s uses Hubby’s trucks and he’s had other remote vehicles before so we’ll see how long it takes for him to really get good at driving this one around!

The one thing Bootsie has asked for continually is the Monster High Deluxe High School.  Truthfully I don’t even know how she got interested in this show, probably one of her Netflix adventures.  She has the kid level restrictions on her part of the account so I know it’s nothing out of her age range, but this show is definitely something new to me!

Huge Monster High High School Play Set with Iconic Details

Open or closed, this extra-large Monster High High School play set offers tons of possibilities for young ghouls to recreate favorite scenes, play out new stories and explore the world of these beast friends. Bright colors (including vivid purple, brilliant blue and trendy silver), iconic elements (like spider webs and scrollwork) and a tall turret decorated with the Monster High crest (and hiding a surprise inside) create a dramatic setting for imaginative stories to be told within its mysterious howlways.

3 Stories, 8 Rooms and Monsterrific Surprises

The biggest Monster High play set yet, this high school set features three tall stories and eight rooms of clawesome fun. With iconic spaces, like the Library/Study Howl, the main hallway, the radio/DJ booth and the busy Creepateria, fans of the webisode and movies can recreate favorite scenes with scary cool detail. Typical schoolrooms, like a bathroom, balcony and two staircases, are perfect for playing out high school stories. And with fun features — like the surprise tentacle seat hidden within a locker in the main hallway, the upside-down seat in the Vampire Lounge, the secret revolving bookcase and the hidden office of Headmistress Bloodgood — kids can really let their imaginations scare up new stories. Mechanisms are simple and easy to reset for repeat fun.

Clawesome Accessories Add Storytelling Fun

​Embellished accessories add to the fun. Rearrange the furniture as needed to play or display a variety of tales, from classic classrooms to monster moments. The furniture — that includes a student desk and chairs for two, a lunch table with bench seats, a small table, a sofa and a Vampire Lounge high-backed chair — is designed with fangtastic decorative work (spider webs, coffins and scrollwork), vibrant colors and authentic decals (bookcases, mirrors and brick backgrounds). Smaller pieces, like a lunch tray, books and a computer, add creeperific fun.

Lots of Play Space To Explore What Makes You Unique

Use this extra-large high school play set to display a killer collection of Monster High dolls (dolls sold separately, subject to availability) — 14 doll clips are included for lots of posing and creative expression. Expand the set to enter new dimensions of frightful fun. Kids can play out routine days, monsterrific adventures and learn to embrace what makes them unique along with the beast friends of Monster High.


It might seem strange but this year the big present I bought hubby was the Instant Pot IP-DUO60 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker, 6Qt/1000W.  One reason I did it was because he’d mentioned that he wanted one.  The second is that a friend of mine has been showing her recipes online.  She should get paid for marketing this item, it’s something she’s convinced me to try! Third was that at a time it was deeply discounted: a can’t-say-no deal.

From the Manufacturer

Created for Fast-Paced, Health-Oriented and Green-Conscious Lifestyles
Instant Pot IP-DUO series is a smart electric pressure cooker designed by Canadians with the objectives of being Safe, Convenient and Dependable. Instant Pot is a kitchen partner that works with you and for you.

Convenient, as Simple as Pressing a Button

With your Instant Pot, green peas, sweet corn and baby carrots can be steamed in 4 – 7 minutes, fresh or frozen. To make mashed potatoes, you don’t have to boil the potatoes in water and let nutrients leach into the water, simply steam them in Instant Pot for just 15 minutes. An entree of chili or Irish stew can be done within an hour without you watching over it.

To tailor for various cooking results and lifestyles, Instant Pot is programmed with adjustable cooking modes, up to 24 hours of delayed cooking, and automatic keep warm for up to 10 hours. Most traditional, modern, and international recipes can easily be adapted for Instant Pot.

I’m horrible with my sunglasses.  I’ve lost more than my fair share of them, but my Arnette Infamous sunglasses have stuck around.

I’m sure everyone has that perfect pair of frames, but the lenses have seen better days.  I hit my head on something when I was wearing them like a headband and put a huge scratch across the lenses.  Hubby wanted to get me a new set of shades, but instead I searched to find just the lenses to save a little money.

The FUSE+ Lenses for Arnette Infamous AN4076 Brown Polarized Lenses are a third of the price of a new set of sunglasses.  Maybe this won’t be something you’d purchase for yourself.  But if you’re clumsy like me there is a cheaper solution to fixing your sunglasses.  Buying new is great, but fixing the old ones actually isn’t that hard.

What’s in Santa’s sack this year for you and your family?
