mikey's secret santa giffts

mikey got several secret santa gifts this year. he got a olive the other reindeer book, dvd and advent calender. also he got an amazon gift card so after much looking i ordered him a couple things today. it was really hard cause there are alot of goodies on amazon!
but i settled on this sort of peg board toy that i had seen before and thought he'd like. also a set off the size progression puzzles. i think these are both great learning toys for him. he really likes toys were he has to put things into shape sorters, puzzles etc.. so i think these will be great.
and big giant huggs and thank you's to mikey's secret santa!
