TBD on Ning

What are you most excited about giving this year? My daughter's new friends at college, who have only known her for a few months, pitched in to buy her a new laptop. I was blown away by their generosity, although I know how easy my daughter is to like.

One of the things I'm most excited about giving this year is a pair of old Life Magazines that have JFK on the cover and have a two part interview with him - for my step daughter who is a huge history buff and is fascinated by the lives of the presidents. I think she'll love it.

I'm also going to have time to help again with the food baskets that a local group gives out to needy families. It's a lot of work gathering the things that are needed, assembling them, and bringing them to their homes, but such a wonderful thing to be involved with.

Got anything special in mind this year? What are you doing or giving that you are thrilled about?

Packages in the mail are magical when you are 3, Quinn. Sounds wonderful.
We're hoping our 6 year old granddaughter likes her new bicycle.
she is going to love it Larry :)
Made me smile :-)
Sometimes getting a smile is the perfect gift. Very cute.

I was thinking spoons this year!               

When four of Santa's elves got sick, the trainee elves did not produce toys as fast as the regular ones, and Santa began to feel the Pre-Christmas pressure.

Then Mrs. Claus told Santa her Mother was coming to visit, which stressed Santa even more.

When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to give birth and two others had jumped the fence and were out, Heaven knows where.

Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the floorboards cracked, the toy bag fell to the ground and all the toys were scattered.

Frustrated, Santa went in the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot of rum. When he went to the cupboard, he discovered the elves had drunk all the cider and hidden the liquor.. In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the cider jug, and it broke into hundreds of little glass pieces all over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and found the mice had eaten all the straw off the end of the broom.

Just then the doorbell rang, and an irritated Santa marched to the door, yanked it open, and there stood a little angel with a great big Christmas tree.

The angel said very cheerfully, 'Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn't this a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to stick it?'

And thus began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree. Not a lot of people know this.
















More traditional turkey on top the tree.
