I think this year I’m stuck – who needs another sweater or DVD player or even DVD? At this point when people ask what do the girls want for Christmas – I respond with clothes or art supplies. They have everything they want and they never see commercials on TV – so they don’t even know what they’re missing. If I need something – it’s because I really NEED it – like a spare tube, or gel or ummm a new bike – I’ll just get it. So I think from now on we’ll be trying to give experiences instead of ‘stuff’. For instance, we’re flying Greta’s parents down instead of sending gifts. For my family – which is bigger than Greta’s – we’re (CHRISTMAS SPOILER – STOP READING MOM) going to be renting a place over memorial weekend and flying out to Nantucket, MA. Here we’ll stay at this place – it’s a home owned by my friend Hunter from whom we’re renting it from.
Now isn’t a week with my entire family – sisters, brother’s in law, kids and nana a better present than a wool sweater for all? The only drawback is that it rents for $25,000 a week. It sleeps 15 and should be great – since we’re only 15 including little kids.
speaking of kids – here are two of my favorite videos that I’ve posted before:
Happy Birthday – Sada doesn’t miss a lyric despite the beating.
When you’re at Disney and you’re so excited that you can’t walk a straight line – you just HAVE to give the thumbs up!
