  • That is what my hubby wanted, I also couldnt afford it. Unfortunately I could only get him a new mouse, and head phones. He picked out both, but I still feel like I have failed him.

  • If you can't afford it, don't feel guilty.

    Christmas is not about us giving the perfect gift - it is about Jesus and His gift to us.

    No more tears - it's a happy day!

  • Yes, I felt bad about not getting my husband more gifts to unwrap from under the tree. He opened a box with new pj's and a box with new monogrammed handkercheifs. The problem being that everything he wanted he didn't want to wait for - he went and bought what he wanted as we went Christmas shopping! His most wanted item was a remote control car that you design yourself and add all the extra computer chips and for sounds and lights. There's a store you just walk through, choose all the options you want for your basic car body, and they put it together for you. He LOVES that gift! But I feel so bad that he wouldn't let me wrap any of it and put it under the tree. {{sigh}}
