For the love of all that is holy, I had no idea how long the “30 Days of Thanks” thing would feel 28 days into it. Can we all agree that I’m very thankful for my husband/kids/family/warm house/working body/chocolate and move on? Because I am and I want to.
Now, let’s talk about material things. Specifically, Christmas Lists.
Does your family do Christmas lists? My family lives and dies by them and since some of my family actually plans ahead, I’ve been told I need to come up with lists for me and the kids pronto. The problem for me is that I’m 34 and typically just buy what we need throughout the year. My mother, bless her, hates giving gift cards or money, so I still need to come up with something. Somehow, I doubt new bath towels are going to be something she’s thrilled about buying. So tell me- what are you asking for?
As for the kiddos- what’s hot for 6 year old boys that isn’t lego related? And what about gifts for a 4 year old girl who isn’t into princesses, Barbies or baby dolls? The girl is like McGyver- give her 3 Dixie cups, 1 marker, 5 pieces of paper and a pair of scissors and she’s happy for hours.
I’m all ears- hit me with your best ideas!
