I’m posting this now since we’ve already had some questions about what to get for Hayley for her big 10th birthday. Also Hayley is having her friends bring special items for the animal shelter at her party – how cool is that! Feel free to help with that if you want.
Hayley is getting a Wii for her birthday (it is a surprise so please don’t spill the beans) and we’d love it if you all wanted to help get her some additional stuff for the Wii. Items range from $15 to $50.
You can use the links I have here or get the items elsewhere – they are available pretty much everywhere!
- Wii Extra controllers (2 to 3)
- Wii Charge Station
- Mario Party 8 game
- Kidz Sports: Basketball game
- Kidz Sports: International Soccer game
- Cooking Mama game
- Game Party game
- Hannah Montana 2 game
Intec Wii Wireless Sensor Bar
- Glove Kit Wand/Nunchuck Combo for Nintendo Wii
- Wii skin (a coating over the wii) (2)
Also Hayley is asking all her friends to get gifts for the animal shelter instead of giving her gifts at her birthday party. If you want to get a few dog/cat toys to help her total, I know she’d love that.
The story behind this is that ASPCA commercial with Sarah Mclachlan singing? It kills me and it has been getting to Hayley and some of her friends too. She asked to give her allowance which was very cute and was upset over it. When the ASPCA stuff started up, we went their local website to look at it and they had a needs list. So … she and I decided to have her friends bring gifts for the ASPCA animals instead of gifts for her. I thought she might balk at the idea but she was through the roof excited about it.
She is always showered with gifts from family so she knows she going to get a ton anyway. She loves animals so much and it is a great chance for her to learn about helping others. She is so excited to get all the stuff and bring it to the shelter – I think that is what is making her the most excited. She’s told some of her friends and they are all excited about going to PetSmart to get dog and cat items – and especially the nursing bottles. I’m so happy her friends got on board with this, it made her happy. Have I mentioned how much I love this kid and I’m so proud of her?
So if you want to help … here is the list
