Recieve
I would like an all expences paid trip to the USA for my wife and i and my two children. may be New York and LA

The first thing that popped into my head is "just good health and to see my son, who is 8, grow up etc etc." Really for this xmas that is all I want
BUT if I must add something else... I wouldn't mind a new sewing machine. Mine is broken, I am learning how to quilt and am having to do it all by hand right now... good for hand strength but not so good for getting projects done quickly.

As far as giving gifts, I would love to take my family on a nice vacation somewhere warm as they have been so good to put up with me lately.
I am sure my little boy would love to go to Disneyworld.....

Happy Holidays to all of you... May all your wishes come true :D

I would love to take my kids to Disney for Christmas. My son is only 3 so we are actually waiting for him to get a little older. They say it's beautiful at Christmas.
I was thinking the same thing.....good health for my family, etc.....but Disney would be nice. Maybe in a few years.

Amy,
Just watched a show last Saturday on Disney at xmas and it looked fabulous. It said it was one of the busiest days of the year there. Many families make it a tradition to go there. :)

Great question....

After 2 years in a row without being able to vacation...my hubby and I took our three kids to Disney from November 21 through November 28. It was actually my first time there also. We really did it up and the trip exceeded my expectations. For that experience i am truly greatful....Thats all i needed for the holidays..... I hope and pray for a peaceful year and to alway look at what i have instead of what i dont.

I think I'd like to have my wife be happy and have my kids really enjoy the holidays. That'd be a great gift. I nice tree and a fire, some time together ... that's pretty much it ...

Well let's see......if I could have one thing and it can't be good health, (by golly we'd all have the same letters to Santa if that were the case) then it would have to be a new pair of slippers. That is what I ask for every year. My kids are tired of hearing it but that's what I LOVE. They have to have a rubber soul because I wear mine everywhere.

Now what I would give would be more one on one time with each of my children. Having three sometimes can be overwhelming. You just tend to clump them together.

Happy Happy Holidays.

Is clumping painful? I just wanted to know before I try clumping my kids ... Do you just kinda smoosh them together to form one kid, what do you call him/her/them? This clumping thing sounds complicated. ;-)

Yes, Clumping is VERY painful!! How do you think I get them to listen to me. I just threaten, "Hey AbriNickBella if you don't behave your getting clumped today!"

Ha Ha

I LOVE the pic you have up. Your son is adorable.

Hope your holidays are going well.

Hugs, Carri :D

I'm going to go for a new year filled with less confusion and more time with my kids and husband. I'd be perfectly happy with just that :)
