  • I did...I wanted my family to be together, we were. I wanted snow (20 years in California and I still can't get used to a green Christmas!), and it snowed. I wanted everyone to be happy today, and they were. Couldn't have asked for a better day!

    Plus, I got a new blanket :) I am a huge fan of comforting, soft blankets.

  • My children were actually happy with their gifts this year, which made me very happy.
    I was surprised with 2 gifts this year that blew me away. I got an iPod docking station on an alarm clock radio that I had "wished" out loud for sometime last summer but knew we could never afford, and I got a new wireless keyboard and mouse that will be compatible with this computer....a much "needed" gift. Hubby promised me a wireless 4-in-1 printer with our tax refund. I feel so guilty when I would rather give my girls more gifts, even though they have more than they need or could ever want. I just love to shower them with gifts. I love to gift my hubby, too. I guess a part of me feels I don't deserve gifts.

  • We had one of the best Christmases (is that a word?) ever! We stayed home all day in our pjs, had yummy homemade cinnamon rolls and ham for dinner, family came to OUR house (yay!) and we finally didn't worry about pleasing everyone else - we got to make our own traditions and we had a blast! Hubby actually stayed in a pretty good mood too this year! So, yes, it was perfect!!!!!! Funny how your priorities about the holidays change over the years, huh? When I was a kid it was all about the gifts :)
