With Amare's present anyway... I have a lot of other stuff still to do. 

Can you find the best present under the tree? Yup. Kota is spending a lot of time under there.  He likes to hid among the presents.
 I am pretty much finished with Amare's room box.  I still have to make the clothes hamper for the door.  It is a basket ball hoop with a bag under it. 

That won't take long... I hope...
I made the chair and the desk today.

I cheated on the chair. He has a child sized chair under the bed and a wooden sheet for a desk fastened to the bottom rail on the end.
Secret of a quick child's chair...

I had a Chrysnbon ladder back chair kit. 

I cut the top down to two pieces across instead of four.  I used my wire cutters.

Then I cut just under the second rung on the side on all four legs.

Instant child's chair. Worked like a charm.

I put everything in place with Mini wax.  That way he will still be able to move things around.

I plan to give him some of the Mini wax in an old container.  That way he can move things around and keep them in place.

I am sure that I will find a few other things to put in and I am sure that he will find some things to add on his own.

Now all we have to do is wait until Christmas!

See you tomorrow.

It's a wonderful gift I am sure he will play with often and treasure! Can't wait to hear about his reaction when he opens it on Christmas! Good job grandma!

Thanks Jodi! T has been great fun doing it. Since he is my only grandchild it's a one time thing. I am going to keep adding things until Christmas.

Big hug
