This was our Christmas wish list board at school. The snowballs are the wish lists of the children. Lots of I pods, DS's, American Girl dolls, Legos and Star Wars, and two wanted a real bunny. (The gloves and bow I took out of Lost and Found, hah)
Okay what is on your list.......what are you buying this year for others. Hmmmmm, on my list is an
American Girl , legos, Playmobile, play dishes, doll beds, giraffe teether, lots of 31 gifts, books, gift certificates, candles, craft kits, clothes, dog bones and dog toys. It is fun to shop for others esp. the little ones.
Now wrapping is another story. So far nothing has been wrapped yet. Cards are still sitting undone. But there are only 3 more work days left for me. It'll happen, probably later than sooner.
We have lots of snow on the ground and BABY it is cold outside. The grandkids and the kids at school are getting so excited. They talk about their travels to see their families and about the presents they hope to receive. Tree trimming is high on their list just like making cookies to share. Hopefully the little ones will remember that it is Jesus' birthday that we are celebrating. It truly is a magical time. Every year there are new memories. So much work goes into planning for that one day, or in many cases, several days of hugging, laughing and exchanging. Most of us are exhausted by December 25 but isn't it all worth it......the smiles and the love that we have for our families.
