I felt a tiny bit stupid at first but because it was my daughters idea I really had to run with (who am I to squash initiative in a 13 year old girl!) . . . but all the friends who came home to boxes of cup cakes just loved it . . . yayness!

I guess we do all get a bit too caught up in the commercialism of it all and forget that it really should just be about re-connecting with people after the craziness of another year and taking time to say 'hi' and being kind to each other . . . enough gush fest from me

I did ridiculously well . . . got an iPhone (first ever little ipody device and I am a teeny tiny bit addicted to it already), some gorgeous edun tshirts (a purple one and one with a message from Nelson Mandela on it that reads . . . .'There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than the One you are capable of living' . . . gorgeous message that made me cry as I read it . . . I love it and am thinking of having it printed onto a canvas to hang in my loungeroom), some books, an iTunes card, perfume but, as dorky as it sounds my favourite present . . . new tyres for my car

Kids got spoilt . . .Santa bought them a Wiiiiiiiii which, even though we really struggled to afford it . . . it has been the best because it's something we are all playing together . . .hurrahness for family re-bonding time

Hope you all had a beautiful christmas and that 2010 sees the lights shine a little brighter for you all
This just made me tear up! Beautiful! I eespecially love the Madela saying on the purple Edun shirt! Awesomeness right there!

I had a quiet Christmas but I had a couple packages with wonderful things from people who mean a lot to me. I was quite happy with the lovely cards I'd been receiving! I got some lovely lavender body lotion and shower gel, scarf gloves and socks, baked goodies, gift cards and a $1000 check from my mother. I bought myself an iPhone a month or so ago and that was my Christmas/Birthday gift to myself which I love dearly. I also have a $100 Amazon gift card. I am going to choose some things wisely as I am saving money for my trip to England in the Spring!

On the downside of the this festive time of the year, my dad and me both got a bad stomach virus after Christmas. Dad got it on the 26th I got it that night and the following day...... It was terrible. I'm convinced that it has something to do with my nana 's jello mode that she made for Christmas dinner. Other members of the family got sick as well. But oh well, dad and me are better so that's good.

Hi,
Kristen thanks so much for for posting for me- I appreciate it. My wife really suprised me this year..using the pix I took in Toronto, and blowing them up/cropping them etc. to create the "picture". The only debate in the house now is where it will hang. I was thinking the main living room or maybe in the master bedroom....looks like the basement rec room will have to do (wife rolls eyes at other suggestions, and strongly suggests the rec room)!
I hope everyone had a great Christmas and all have a safe and Happy New year!
Cheers,
