Girls Write Out
Monday, December 26, 2011
The older I get, the more I realize that it really is more blessed to give than receive. Watching the face of a loved one opening a gift they've longed for is priceless.

This year's favorite gift moment was our middle son Chad. He'd been asking for a Rudy Notre Dame jacket for years. Birthdays, Christmases, there that jacket was on the list. But it's expensive so we always opted for other things.

This was the year we decided to do it. Watching his face was so much fun. He didn't expect it--he'd probably given up hope and only put it on the list out of habit. And surprise, I've learned, is half the fun. Seeing his eyes widen and the smile spread across his face was so worth it.

What was your favorite giving moment this Christmas?

My favorite moment this year was when my mother put old Legos in a box to fool my son, and when he opened his box with garbage in it, the face on him was so funny. He always guesses everything, right down to which Lego you've bought him, so leading him on a wild goose chase for his present was more fun.

I gave my DH a year's membership in the NRA, something he's wanted for years but could not afford. Those memberships are expensive!! But I was able to get it at half price and I couldn't pass that up. Good thing Christmas came when it did...DH was about to join for himself!

My favorite moment this year was when we were able to surprise our three granddaughters with a trip for our family to go to Disney this summer. Their faces and happy screams were priceless. Now we have 7 months of excitment and planning what we want to do.

My favorite moment was when my 2 yr old daughter proudly presented Daddy with the present she picked out. A $6 robotic Monster Truck that plays redneck tunes. LOL! Needless to say, it was the most popular present too ...

I don't have one particular gift moment but my own Christmas was Doctor Who filled. I think my favorite gift was the crocheted Doctor Who (#10) and Rose Tyler dolls which daughter made herself. She packed them in a box she'd painted to look like the TARDIS. It was uber cool. My son, not to be outdone, gave me a DW classic DVD featuring Sarah Jane, my favorite companion. The actress passed away recently so these are precious to me. My husband found somewhere a TARDIS light switch plate. I was a happy Whovian. :-)

My favorite moment was giving both sets of parents framed photos of their grandchildren holding the letters LOVE. I made the photos black and white and then the letters are red. Father-in-law and Daddy were visibly touched by the gift. Made my Christmas!! You can see it on my blog if you are interested.

I bought my husband a sock monkey for Christmas. He laughed and laughed when he opened it and he loves it!
