What about you? Have you got all your gifts purchased? Wrapped under the tree? For those of you with kids, do they shake them or try to unwrap them? I know someone who used to carefully slice open the tape, unwrap their gifts, and then re-wrap them! I'm not naming names, and no, it wasn't me--I snuck into my parents' room and checked it all out BEFORE they wrapped them:) (disclaimer here as my oldest sometimes reads my blogs--peeking TOTALLY ruined my Christmas that year...and beware, I set booby traps!)
So this week I'm wondering, what was your favorite gift ever?

Dorothy Hamill do here.
Anyone else out there still holding onto a gift they received years ago?
well, you have outed me! my favorites were always the Christmas music boxes. The search for a different one with a different Christmas carol each year was so much fun and I couldn't wait to wind it up and start it playing as it sat on Santa's letter to you kids. It was playing as you all ran down the hall shouting for Dad to hurry up...he always made you wait for him to shave! (it was his joke to get you all so excited!) It gives me such joy to see them at your houses when we come over at Christmastime...you all have your favorites at your homes now and I don't have to pack them up and store them, a win win!ReplyDelete
It was a very special memory:) I loved those music boxes!!Delete
I'm just about finished with the wrapping; just a couple more to go. : )ReplyDelete
My favorite childhood present was an orange-colored portable record player. My favorite albums were Shaun Cassidy, Disco Duck, and Frosty the Snowman. I still have the records, but not the record player.
I love that picture of you with your Paddington Bear! So cute! I also had a Dorothy Hamill haircut in 1977 (I was in Kindergarten). :D
So glad to know I wasn't the only one sporting that haircut:) I'd have loved one of those record players! I wonder what my kids would think of them now:)Delete
