It's a new month...

And time for a new focus. I'm not going to ask anyone to blog daily, but I'm pretty sure you can handle weekly. Here is your December challenge (although I shouldn't call it that because it's not hard): Once a week, post a Christmas memory. A memorable Christmas morning, receiving a much-anticipated gift, giving a gift you looked forward to giving, a Christmas trip, celebrating a favorite tradition... the parameters are wide open. If your blog is in part to record what is happening in your life and those of your family, take a few days this month and record some of your favorite holiday memories. If you don't want to publicly share them, or if you don't blog, I welcome you to participate anyway, you know, the ol' pen and paper way. It will be fun to reminisce about former December memories as we create new ones this month.

** bonus question: if you happen to have a mother-in-law, what are you giving her for Christmas??

We're probably getting my in-laws a new digital camera.

Pictures of the kids are out in-law/parent standbys. We're particularly fond of photo books from snapfish. We make a new one every year.

Like Jess, we make a photo book every year for my in-laws.

I am giving my mother in law a "scentsy" gift. If you don't know what those are, it is a burner and scented wax. And it is yummy. Check it out! You might like it for yourself. I would try those pic books, but they take so long!!!

We are giving the M.I.L tickets to the symphony with the F.I.L. at Lincoln Center.
