Santa, himself, handed me a business card saying, "Be naughty and save me a trip." So I have a pass for this year.

Actually, "he's" already picked exactly what I want. But don't tell me, it's a secret!


Finding what life could have been....... Why didn't I see it?

I never even think about it. If I look back at things I may have said throughout the year (if my memory were that good, that is), I'm sure that's exactly what my daughter has got for me! I do recall mentioning that I thought I'd buy a pressure cooker.

Nik and Stronger08, You both deserve a present. I'll tell Santa to drop off 10 lbs of chocolate. If it's too much let me know and I'll eat some.

I ask for the same thing every year. DD to sleep late and when she wakes up she makes me tea before we do presents. Thank you, Santa & DD.

I get to have two of my three kids with me! We're going to eat lots of good food and watch lots of movies and just generally enjoy each other's company. I can't wait!!!

What am I getting for Christmas? I *want* two gallons of paint. What I'll *actually* get? Who knows. My hubby and kiddos think wayyyy outside the box. It's hysterical every year.

No idea.

Quite possibly The Walking Dead graphic novels.
Maybe a video game. Some stuff for our apartment and puppy.

Oh, I love the Pyrex glass storage containers!!
I got the assorted set and find that I need more of the larger ones.
I should have asked for those. Dang.

My girls got me a small tin of Quality Street chocolates. (Not sure if you have those in the US or other countries.)
I told them not to spend a lot of money on me.
I found the tin "hidden" in one DD's skate bag.
They are not so great at hiding things from me.

Nature Girl, did you sign your kids up for an angel tree anywhere? There are people like me that it makes our Christmas to shop for a child/teen.

the standard present from mom - a box of honeycrisp apples from upstate NY. not expecting anything else from anyone.

NatureGirl - as suggested by pentup be sure to check into an angel tree or your town's human services dept. In my town they hold multiple different toy/gift fundraisers, with another one scheduled for tomorrow. they always have a big turnout because its for the kids.

We aren't exchanging gifts this year. Dh is graduating from his very long program and he's done next week!!!!
We had a finite amount of money and decided to take the kids on a trip. So this is our Christmas/Celebration trip. The kids will only get a few little things. Instead we'll get out of this cold weather and spend time together.. something there has been way too little of this year. I am really excited.

Nature Girl, I used to get food and gift cards from a local church for the holidays. See if it's not too late to sign up your family. I wish I had known sooner, I could have put an extra something (besides glitter) in your card.

what i would like more than anything is to heal my broken shoulder so i don't need surgery. what i will probably get is a pandora bead or perfume from my dd. maybe get to see my son n grandbabies, but nana is gonna suck at the big Christmas this year. can't lift a turkey or ham, or carve a prime rib, so maybe we will start a new tradition with chicken n dumplings. if i cheat n use the frozen dumplings it will work. dont know what i will manage for crafts for grands though, we made a gingerbread house last year. any ideas for one handed holiday cheer for 5 n 7 y/os? and NG, sometimes love is the best present ever, they will always remember that far beyond the broken toys with dead batteries. maybe u have a few extra cents for some baking supplies? my kids always loved the sugar cookie decorating n candlelight service on Christmas eve.
eta: i got the christmas chipmunk! OMG... it's a sign...lol

SO got my gift a month or so ago. We went to an auction and he got me something cool. I thought he was buying it for himself but he surprised me! It was too big to wrap so he just carried it in for me.

I love it (and him).

I think dd will get me something like a cd or a stuffed animal. Not sure, but it is never something super big. Usually delivered with a hug which is awesome.

Someone got me some cookware off my wish list- I suspect my sister-in-law.

I cheat and look to see what has been purchased.


I need not suffer in silence while I can still moan, whimper and complain.

If this isn't what I consider soulmate crap, I don't know what is.
