Hey!! I don’t have holiday spirit . I’m a Festivus girl! Bring on the grievances and the pole!! In fact, I can be a bit of a Grinch. He was, and IS, my favorite Dr. Seuss character. He was prickly, unpleasant and enjoyed taking roast beast from babies. BUT, he also learned that he had a great capacity for love and seeing others happy. I love seeing my kids (well, the younger three. The big girl is a near teenager who has the classic inability to get really excited by gifts) GET HAPPY when they open a package! This is the part of the season I can get with!!
Friends this list includes gifts small and gifts big! Gifts crafty and gifts green! Gifts thoughtful and gifts silly!

I’m not sure what we’ll be getting the kids this year. I’m torn between getting them something they’d really love (like more toys to clutter the damn floor) or something *gasp* educational (they actually love learning games/toys) or something fun, that they’d love but would drive me crazy (anything, anything at all, that makes noise).
Wish all of us parents luck!! And buy SILENT toys!
