Those look like long lists! I tried to make it things they really want while keeping in themes so I don't have too many brand new things coming in.
For T, age 8.5:
Want: iTouch (handmedown 4th gen) in a new case with Lego Life of George:
Read: A Wrinkle in Time Quintet
Wear: Scarf (homemade), Threadless t-shirt
Need: Bike helmet
Santa: Lego Master Builder pt 1, Razor Scooter, Hex bug thing
Total: $171 including cc and lego rewards points
For F, age JUST 3 two days after Xmas:
Want: Leapfrog Explorer+Pixar Pals game
Read: 2 Mo Williams books: Should I share my ice cream and We are in a book
Wear: Homemade scarf and a threadless t-shirt
Need: Dinosaur quilt bedding (handmedown but long stored away so totally new to him) + a Threadless sweatshirt since we bought it and we have decided not to move him to a big bed soon...staying in crib for now so the bedding will be surplus till then
Santa: Thomas and Friends Deluxe Roundhouse, a Triceratops dinosaur and a few small play kitchen accessories that I found in the garage.
Total: $149 including cc points
Our budget was $400 for both of them so I feel good about staying under that, with even less of that being cash since I used a lot of cc and other rewards/dividend dollars to buy stuff

"No American president has ever supported a major expansion of civil rights that has not ultimately been adopted by the American people - and I have no doubt that this will be no exception. The march of freedom that has sustained our country since the Revolution of 1776 continues, and no matter what setbacks may occur in a given state, freedom will triumph over fear and equality will prevail over exclusion." -Michael Bloomberg

"Someday, I am going to go to bed without toys on the floor and sippys in my sink. Things will stay where I put them and I can have nice, fragile items on display. But when I do, I will look around with a wistfullness in my heart and miss the days where vibrant imaginations ran wild and there was evidence of life happening around me all the time!"

Perplexus - regular for sure. DS1 got it for his 6th birthday and can do all 100 of it. I think the rookie would be too easy to master. I considered the Epic for Christmas here.
Meon - what is this? I am not understanding from the reviews!
Walkie talkies - DS1 has the Lego walkie talkies and they work really well. The kids play with them quite often and they're fun that they look like Lego (just a sticker).
DS (age 4.5). Several of our relatives/friends in England sent money over with MIL when she visited us recently, so I need to buy presents for him that will come from them. We also do both Christmas and Hanukkah.
From Santa: Fisher Price Smart Cycle 3-D Racer-- If you have feedback on this, I'd be really interested to hear it!
From MIL's best friend: Hot Wheels game for Smart Cycle
From SIL3: Disney Pixar game for Smart Cycle
From MIL: Dumbo and Lion King DVDs
From SIL1: ???? Maybe Beyblades???
From DH and me for Hanukkah: Magnaformers
From DH and me for Christmas: Hess Truck, Books, Sled, Clothes, an Apron, Sorry (the board game), ???
