Remember getting a box of toy soldiers that was really exciting. I thanked my parents profusely, time of appreciation when times were hard.

Re: Pat,

I can relate--for some reason, I just don't like going to the post office! So things don't get mailed, sometimes,ever.

Re: Kabu,

Wow, they sound like a bunch of unmanaged children!  Well, that one must make just about every other Christmas happier! And this year, soft and gentle with Wiley and Master Graysome and much coziness...!

The most heartbreaking Christmas crisis for me was the year that Ribcage was born on the 22nd of Dec.  I was in the hospital a whole week, knew I was going to be there during Christmas because of complications so I did early shopping, wrapping, etc. everything done on time.  Hubby spent all day the 24th with baby and me and then was driving down to the farm for family Christmas festivities.  So, he packed all the wrapped gifts, baked things, etc. in the car which sat in the Hospital parking lot all day.  About dark he went out to begin his trip out of town and found that a car window had been broken and everything inside the car had been stolen....every last gift, every goodie, everything Christmassy.  No one told me about it for a week because they wanted me to have fun thinking everyone was enjoying all the work I had done.

I thought about shopping, wrapping, mailing, etc. before Thanksgiving.

Unfortuntely thinking about it doesn't do it, sent off the packages to the grandkids on Wed., with no guarantee they'd get there on time, but I'm telling myself the little ones have so much confusion and excitement that having Santa make a second stop ain't such a bad thing... Next year I'll sent it all by Dec. 1.

'orrible so it were.

The worst Christmas for me...

I had not had my married children at my place for the whole day ever and now that there were grandchildren ,I decided one year that it was my turn.

Never make a Matriarchal decision in this day and age for you may just get what you want.

The babies cried and fought over gifts. The Mothers didn't get enough sleep and we 'orrid. The men consequently were uptight, inclined to blame me and just grumps.

I spent something like 70 hours making fabulous Christmas bon-bons each named with a special thought out gift for each person. They were just ripped apart and thrown aside. On and on. My last family Christmas
