I just did some Christmas shopping on Amazon and bought a few books for my son who will celebrate his 9th birthday in January. I'm pretty sure he will love all these classics, check them out, you might fondly remember some of these too.
I threw in a highly-rated flashlight with batteries (for under $8). Wishful thinking, but maybe he will try to sneak read some of these books under the covers with the flashlight after bedtime. That's what i used to do, but it's unlikely to happen, his preference is Minecraft before any books..

If you are wanting to grow out your hair color and let your natural grey hair be your new look, it will take some time and patience. One way to avoid those unattractive roots as they first start growing out is to try different bandana and head scarf styles. Check out this two minute video for some great ideas on how to cover up hair roots with a beautiful bandana. The "Hepburn" look at the end of the video is our favorite.
Also, see a great shawl style that would look fab and do the job of covering all the hair roots;

Check out this fabulous video on how to wear a shawl in several different ways. The shawl shown here is the KOOSHOO smoke shawl, dyed individually by hand and made 100% from Tencil (a Eucalyptus tree fibre). It is silky and very soft in appearance and comes in several beautiful color combinations.
My eight year old son is completely absorbed in the Minecraft game now. And he spends his spare time watching YouTube instructional videos about the game. Minecraft is arguably the best video game to come along for kids in the past ten years. It's a virtual version of Lego and lets your kids be infinitely creative. It's become a huge cult favorite. It's approaching the popularity of Angry Birds..
If you're looking for a cheap Halloween costume for your boy(s), this is definitely one to consider making at home. (Also your kids will really enjoy watching the virtual world play at the beginning and end of this video).
