Re: Christmas giving programs


I'm with you Kitty. The fun is in giving. I wasn't going to do the giving
thing this year, as I am broke. But I can't stand the thought of being there
with my family and having NOTHING to give.. So I made a vow not to spend
over a certain amount and believe me it's small, but at least I can get them
something they would never buy for themselves, and not kill myself trying to
buy big stuff and everyone has something to open. My sister and her family
are moving to Illinois on Dec 19 so we are celebrating early. Going to be a
weird year. I suspect there will be a lot of crying.
A
PS-Love the car gift. That was a great idea.
