Trivium Academy Posted July 5, 2008 Share Posted July 5, 2008 We loved seeing the movie Nim's Island but it won't be released to DVD until August 5th..urgh! That would have been perfect as a gift. The only other thing she's mentioned is a few reader chapter books of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe she saw at a book warehouse. I have plenty of things I need to get for her, like craft kits for our handicrafts time, a pocket microscope for science, I've mentioned getting the Animals of the World Map poster for her room (she loves geography and animals). I just feel guilty giving her these things as presents since I was going to get them anyways. So...should I get these things that I was already going to get? I'm one of those "perfect gift" type people who really think about what to get and so this is a different approach this year. She doesn't need a thing, she's got plenty, in fact I'm still purging. She does want a fan for her bedroom but that is such a utility gift. Is this a get over it moment for me? Also, she wants a princess cake. Is there a way to do this without going the Disney or Barbie princess route? I've never done a shaped cake before, I consider myself lucky to be able to do a two-layer cake! :lol: Help!
