Hi everyone. I'm still ultra excited to finally meet my baby sister in person and have her spend more than a week with us over the holidays. I love that she's so thrilled too and I guess that whole in my heart where she wasn't all those years I wondered about her is just filling up and eating up every bit of her enjoyment too. I've pretty much got us doing a few activities she should enjoy over her visit, most time though will be spent just getting to know each other without pressure and spending time at home quietly as we all establish a relationship. I feel so lucky that her and my easy child are only 8 months apart in age. Having a tween here for her to bunk with and to do tween stuff will hopefully help her feel more comfortable too. Her and easy child are learning more and more about each other by chatting online and seem quite natural and at ease with other already so that helps too. I'm trying to decide on what to do regarding Christmas gifts. I know she doesn't have/get much at home. I don't want to spoil her absolutely rotten, plenty of time to do nice things for her Know what I mean?? But I do want thoughtful special gifts. My family is all chipping in to get one single present from all of them, a psp which she's asked for 2 years in a row and won't be getting this year at home. I can't believe the kindness and warmth from my family (aunt and 3 cousins) towards her already, she will be meeting them when she is here. I won a gift card to a nearby store that I plan to attach to the extended families gift, that will allow her to go buy a game when she's here to play on the new psp. From me as a personal gift, I'm going to find a nice picture frame. The ones with some sort of "sisters" saying on them, something not too grown up yet not "kiddie". I plan to take a ton of pictures while she is here, and before she leaves I will have a good one processed to put in the frame before she leaves. Just the two of us. I'm going to buy a matching frame for me and put in the same picture. easy child is going to pick out a pair of pj's for her. S/O and difficult child are going to give her 2 movie passes and a gift card for treats, that she and I can use on a "sister" date while she is visiting. I would like to find a couple more ideas for things that are more personal from me to her. Can't be too pricey but would like them to be special, if that makes sense. I think with the psp and game from my family, that covers toys. So I'm unable to think of anything else that might be personal and special. I guess I really want the meaning to be there, to make her feel good when she uses it or sees it etc. I've considered one of those gold chain sets where you each get half the heart to keep. I've considered a little gold ring (just a 10K), a sisters pride perhaps, with myself and my bro on either side of her birthstones. We get deals here for jewelry at the nearby Zellers that puts prices down to 50-75% all jewelry at this time of year so the price could be low. I just don't know if she is a jewelry kind of girl (although her photos strike me as very girly). Any other ideas or thoughts? I guess in future years I'll just do her wish list type thing. But this year I just want to pick "the right thing".
