I gave my daughter the Wii Draw tablet and game she asked for back in spring which I told her was too much money. She was so shocked when she opened it her mouth had dropped open and she said to her Stepfather “Do you know how much this costs ?”
It was such a great moment as she loves doing computer artwork and I saved the money to get her that.

My favorite present would have been my hubby home from Korea but since that didn’t happen my favorite present was the excitement on our kids faces as they opened their gifts. Christmas is not the same w/out their Dad but the joy on their faces and skype actually working so he could watch them open gifts was the greatest present I could ask for =)

My best present was from my sister: a hardcover book that she had printed with each page being photos of funny faces of everyone in my little family, including myself and my little niece who is five, through the years. It laughed so hard I cried upon first looking at it! Very creative and personal especially since I live across the country. It will make me smile every time I look at it and I’ll treasure it forever.

The older I’ve become, the more and more I don’t feel the need for expensive gifts. Out of my presents, my 3 new books are definitely my favorite. Besides that, cooking with my Dad and just eating a bunch of treats and turkey has been the best gift, as always.

I hope you and your family had a great Christmas, Zesty.

Happy Holidays Zesty! My favorite gift was one that Santa gave our 3 1/2 year old daughter. She loves “fixing” things and doing “carpentry” work with her Dad, so Sanata gave her a Black and Decker kiddie drill & tool set. It is hilarious to watch her use it.

Well..for me…I got the best gift of all. I got two new sons-in-law this year. And I knew that one of them was going to be with us for Christmas. But I was surprised by the other one on Christmas Eve. It was so amazing to have both my daughters and their new hubbies here. (and yes…I cried)

My favorite is a gift that our family will all be able to enjoy later. With 3 of our children going to different colleges in different states and doing internships, a family vacation is virtually impossible. My husband, our 4 children and son in law are all going to go to Disney World for 4 days!!!!! It will be wonderful, all being able to enjoy a vacation together:)

We are so lucky to spend time with family and friends but the best gift is spending the night with my son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren. Seeing the excitement on their faces on Christmas Eve and Christmas morning was the best gift ever but
we did receive an Ipad 2 from the kids. Just have to learn how to use it.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to Zesty- Zesty’s family and good-luck to everyone who entered this contest.

70 comments already for the 12th day of Christmas! My favorite present this year came from my son and my daughter (and her hubby & kids). It’s a new camera. Yay, now I can take better photos than ever for both my blogs. Especially pleased that I’ll be able to get close up even when I’m far away.

My two little girls are obsessed with unicorns lately. My favorite thing to get them were their unicorn themed gifts. Also, they got a karaoke machine. It has been so funny seeing them dancing around seeing it. We really only bought for the kids this year, and I think it has been one of the best Christmases ever. =)
