me and my hubby ask the kids to make a wish list of 6 things they want from Santa and of course the thing they want most at the top of the list. we do this in Aug. and then the fun begins! of course we buy for our neices and nefews and his parents and for my sister, and brother and his family. and what do I want for Christmas? for everyone to be well and happy and TONS of smiles. as long as I have my family and friends and they are happy and having fun thats the best gift of all to me!
