Holiday Haul 2021

Seasons Greetings and Happy Holidays Readers! We hope that the end of 2021 and the winter season have been treating you well. Here in the casa de Chaos & Confetti, we received more than our fair share of familial joy and gifts.

We’re so excited about everything we received that we want to give you readers a glimpse into our treasure trove of gifts.  If the below lists make it seem like Chaos ended up with far more presents, it’s because he was nice and Confetti was naughty this year.  Only kidding.  In reality, Confetti ended up with plenty of great gifts too, but we’ll specifically be sharing items that fall into our hobbies and interests that are covered in our blog.  We doubt any of you want a line by line reading of gift cards or for Confetti to list her new outfits, bath soaps, and other miscellaneous goodies.  All the delicious sweets will also be omitted because nobody needs to know how many extra calories we’re about to indulge in over the coming days and weeks.

Final note before we jump into our gift lists, we would officially like to bestow the moniker of Yeti on our littlest family member.  Why Yeti?  We love cryptids.  Yeti rhymes with Confetti.  Our little man was born with plenty of hair.  We’ll make a point of not including him in this blog too much, but when there is a sighting, you’ll know you’ll be getting a peek at a special little creature.  With all that said, Yeti does have three gifts listed below.  The rest of his presents will be left out because we’re not trying to run a blog about the best baby books, toys, and accessories (at least not yet).

Let’s get to it!
