You all have such great ideas for a gift for causingchaos's mom.
Christmas is less than 2 months away...how did this year fly by so quickly? All my nieces and nephews are grown so my days of gift purchasing are over. They get cash in their cards. The only child I purchase for is my neighbor's granddaughter who is now in 5th grade. I have no idea what is the hot toy this year. Anybody here have any girls around that age? I'll have to ask my neighbor what her granddaughter is into these days.
Sis and I alternate hosting Christmas. This year is my year off. As much as I like to host, I better enjoy my year off as I get to take my time in the morning and go to 12:30 Mass. On years I host I'm forced to be up, showered and dressed super early to get to 8 a.m. Mass. I'm not a morning person. I have no problem being up early, which I have to do when I'm hosting anyway, but it's the not hanging around in my nightgown and showering at the last minute which I have issues with. Plus it's Christmas so you (I) want to look fairly presentable at Mass.
