Isabella’s Second Christmas – Pics!!

Christmas is always a special holiday for my family, but the excitement died back when I was around 9 or 10. Believe it or not…Santa matters! He makes the atmosphere of Christmas magical. I don’t mind being selfless and letting an old, fat jolly man take credit for the hundreds of bucks I spent on presents 😉
This year was my daughter Isabella’s second Christmas. I thought I went overboard with her first Christmas, but I went even more overboard THIS year! My excuse? GIVEAWAYS. I love entering giveaways for toys then saving them for birthdays and future Christmases. I’ve been holding on to a certain toy since MARCH!! She finally got it for Christmas, and she’s in LOVE. See below to find out what it was. It is/was my biggest giveaway win to date.
I won that kitchen from Shining2Save back in March!
Yep. That’s me. Hooray for looking like I’m 16!
What did Santa leave for me? A KINDLE FIRE!!! Woooooooooooo!! I LOVE it! I also got a pink/black zebra print Kindle Fire case, pink/black zebra print bedding set, zebra print counting coin bank, Hello Kitty pajama set, two other pajamas, and a bunch of KitKats and Reese’s.
Yeah…I like zebra print. A lot…
I hope everyone had a splendid Christmas! Feel free to comment with what Santa left you…or how your Christmas went! Did you enter giveaways this year for Christmas gifts for your loved ones, too? I’d love to hear! If you do, use the SPECIAL CODE 2NDCHRISTMAS to receive 10 extra entries in all giveaways. This will be valid until January 31st, 2012! Yes, I WILL check to see if you actually commented…so don’t pull a fast one on me. ;P

    Looks like she had a blast. Santa DOES make a difference…mine are all teenagers and they are all like – just gimmie the gift card. I miss Santa at my house…. 🙂

    That's a terrific kitchen… I'm sure she's loving it. 🙂 I won giveaways for a couple of items that I gave to friends for Christmas. Gotta love giveaways!

    Quite a few of my Christmas gifts came from giveaway wins. Sure helped financially. That play kitchen is super cool. I received some nice gifts…microfiber plush blanket, metal wall clock, photo collage frame, pajamas, Water for Elephants book, Ferrero Rocher chocolates, and more. Glad you and the little one had a wonderful Christmas!

    Yes, I did enter giveaways for Christmas presents. There were a bunch I didn't win, but I did get a few – the best being a Zoobies pet for my munchkin. He absolutely adores his panda and carries it everywhere with him. 🙂
