A few people have asked for our wish lists. So, for those who are interested, here they are:
Donations in lieu of Gifts
Hailee’s Library (I try to keep this list up to date with her current books if you’re looking to add something to her shelves).
She has a ton of books, but loves them! Anything fun or silly is a big hit. Or, if it is interactive, that’s a big plus, too (flaps, etc.)
Hailee loves to feed the Ducks at Randall Oaks Park Zoo (we have a membership, but we keep quarters on hand for duck food). She will tell you that yellow and ducks are her favorite right now!
She’s a big fan of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Characters, especially Minnie. (The characters are Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto, Goofy, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, and sometimes Pete). She’s also recently fallen in love with Daniel Tiger. She has a Daniel Tiger Plush and a Baby Margaret Plush, but anything else from that universe would be adored, I’m sure.
She’s brave and adventurous and loves to swing and slide and climb on whatever is close by.
She loves to build things and loves science. Right now, most of her blocks are Mega Bloks, but she’s started using Lincoln Logs at school. Any small building kits are really fun for her as she has her own tool set and loves to use it!
She plays golf with Daddy in the garage and loves to cook in the kitchen with Mommy.
But, her absolute favorite thing to do is to play with someone. So, in lieu of gifts, an afternoon of “Get you” would be so lovely!

White House Ornament Years I’m Missing
Lenox First Blessing Nativity
I have begun collecting the Lenox First Blessing Nativity. I have many of the pieces, but there are 2 new pieces this year (Girl with Goose and Little Drummer Boy). Also, there are other retired pieces you may be able to find on Ebay or Replacements.com. They are listed on my Lenox Registry.
French Perle Dishes
We’ve purchased the French Perle Bead White Square Dishes as our main dishes. However, I’d love to have the serving pieces to go with them. Also, listed on the registry.
Original Crown Mill Cotton Cards
Original Crown Mill Cotton Envelopes
Original Crown Mill Correspondence Set Navy/Cream
China Service – Lenox Bellina (Platinum)
I’m trying to complete my china service this year. I’ve created a registry site to keep track of what pieces we are missing:
I’ve been finding the best prices on www.lenox.com and if you receive their emails, they often have additional sales of up to 30% off (sometimes more!).
**Update – I’ve actually found some “New-in-box” items on www.ebay.com and on www.replacements.com/. These would be great places to check!
