And as Snoozy said,
"I too love Christmas...
My favorite present I bought so far is tickets for my daughter and her hubby to see Seinfeld..
he will be here in January.
Their son is leaving for Madrid in January and I thought they could use a night out together..she is suffering from empty nest syndrome plus getting over Lyme disease.
They love watching Seinfeld so one year I got them half of the videos and the next year the other half..then I skipped a year but I think they will love this! I am including cash so they can eat dinner out. I was going to make reservations but thought I would leave it up to how much energy my daughter has and let them decide where to eat.
One year I gathered all the home photos and split them in four. I made one for each child and one for me. I put them in a fancy photo album so it would be special.
They can add to them but they were pretty full.. I wish I had saved memories of their childhood like their favorite blankets or toys but who would have thought they would have ever graduated high school? They are in their 40's and 50's now.
Just wanted to add that when I went to purchase the tickets I was told they were sold out..well she kept playing with the computer and finally she said "I found two"...I almost cried..finally something went in my favor!
Snoozy..going to purchase the tree tomorrow.. (It's finally on sale)"
