I need help from you Fools.

My 6 year old daughter wrote her Christmas list to Santa (with my urging...hey, I wanted to know what she wanted for Christmas :-). WRONG MOVE! Okay, some of the stuff is obtainable at little price, but others......well, I don't know. Among her 12 items, she wants a "real-size" Barbie. The same one that cost $140.00. She also wants a LeapFrog book.....educational but $50.00. The list goes on and altogether costs about $300.00. Now, my problem......I have the money and would be able to get all of her items BUT I hesitate spending so much. She's my daughter; she's worth it, but $140.00 for Barbie! I also want to get everything on her list so that she'll still believe in Santa. What excuse can I give her for Santa not bringing all she wanted? I'm in a sticky spot and need help. I often spoil her and she's a VERY smart child (on honor roll in school!) and doesn't ask for much during the year. Should I grant my little girl her wish list?

Thoughts and suggestions GREATLY appreciated.
