From Ssvannah:When I was a teenager my sister and I got a horse for Christmas :) His name was Sonny he was a quarter horse. We LOVED him so much! I even taught my sister to ride. My dad had saved and worked all year long so he could fix up our barn and make it liveable for Sonny. And we had to help put up fences. My dad told us it was because he was getting sheep lol and we thought he was being serious! Even though sheep are cute we wanted a horse. Sadly after 4 years my dad couldn't afford to keep up with Sonny's feed and vet bills and the guy who does the hoofs and my sister and I couldn't make enough to cover what he couldn't so we had to give him to a friend of the familyI still get to see him from time to time. Still that Christmas I remember how excited my sister and I were. I think she even cried we stayed outside all day brushing him. And it was the best gift ever because I knew then and I know now how hard my dad worked to make it happen. So even though Sonny isn't mine anymore I still think of him as the best gift ever because all my dad did.PS My brother got a little jealous that Christmas. I can't remember what he got
Savannah, there was nothing I wanted more than a horse when I was a girl! I'd have been jealous just like your brother. :) How nice that you still get to see Sonny sometimes!
From Jessica:Your book sounds great!The best gift I received, was .... as I was trying to think of something I watched videos of my niece and nephew, so I decided they are my best gifts! They're all so unique and I love them so much!
From Theresa Romain: Jessica, what a great auntie you are! :)
My favorite gift would be my son, born on the twenty-second, just in time for Christmas.
From Ingeborg:My daughter gave me a big stack of books, beauty creams and lotions all in a lovely basket. I was very happy.
From Theresa Romain: Ingeborg, she wanted you to relax and pamper yourself. What a great gift!
From Maureen:My best gift was the birth of my son on the twenty-second.
Theresa Romain said: Maureen, I love it! What a fantastic early-Christmas gift.
My best Christmas gift was a Kindle--only had to wait 62 years to get such a fantastic gift. I love the big letters.
It's really nice to be able to change the font size, isn't it? I tinker with that from book to book depending on how it's laid out (or how tired my eyes are).
LOL! I'm right behind you at 61 and I feel the same!
PJ, thanks for moving these comments to a new thread. Sorry about the technical difficulties!
You're welcome, Theresa!
Theresa, I love your book-Christmas-tree! What a fabulous idea!!!
Thanks, Andrea! It was lots of fun to build.
My best (at the time!)Christmas present was the Barbie House I received when I was 9 or 10.
jmcgaugh, you must have been in heaven! That was the Ultimate Excellent Gift for a while.
A decade ago I was horribly sick from Thanksgiving until February. To keep me company a buddy surprised me with a little black boy kitten. Best Christmas & Birthday gift ever. That little floof grew up to run my home & heart...as well as climb the tree, ride the tree and other seasonal mischief.
The perfect pick-me-up during a long illness! I had pet kittens and cats all while I was growing up; they're such wonderful company.
