About 15 years ago, my then 9 year old son with Asperger's asked for a cow. His mother and I, found him a stuffed cow, which still sits on his headboard next to his teddy bear. And every year since someone (sometimes all of us) have managed to work a cow into his gift. The best so far was the year we picked up a bunch of matching small stuffed cows, and stuck one with each gift he got.

we have the white out wild eyes they are VERY hard to wear. They are so thick! I am an everyday contact wearer (actually nights to, I wear night and days) and they really bothered my eyes :( They CAN be worn with no correction though.

I can always be used as a "bad example" :P

I don't know where you're located,but at only ONE WalMart in town (we have 3),there is an extensive International Aisle with brands from all over the world.
There is a brand called Dobrova (I think it's from the Czech Republic?) but they have a chocolate/hazlenut swirled spread just like Nutella but way cheaper. They also make a plain hazlenut spread. Every time I find it in stock,I buy at least 6 jars because everyone loves it.

When he gets a little older, you can help him make his own. It's so much better than the prepackaged stuff:

My daughter is asking for something knitted from Mrs. Clause :eek:and a thank you note from Santa for the cookies with a list of the elves names:rolleyes:. In the past she has asked for a flag and flag pole a box of her own mail and a mail box for her room. She finally got her box of mail and I am trying to come up with ideas for the something knitted since I do not knit and don't know anyone that does.

See if you can find a craft show in your area, and get her a knitted scarf or something. I love the list of elves names!! Watch Rudolph and you may hear a few and don't forget the ones on Santa Claus is coming to town and all the Kringles.

Oriental Trading sells them in 12 packs :) you can have one in every room... you can paint them, and make them your own .... and it is a pretty affordable gift.
