  144. haaaaa, try not to laugh to hard. I remember wanting a "Twirly Curls Barbie" SOOOOO Bad, but didn't think my parents would ever buy it for me. I used to snoop under the tree for anything that might be that shape box.... I never found it, I was heart broken. But on Christmas morning I opened that Twirly Curls Barbie. That gift must have magically appeared, because it definitely wasn't under the tree before that. LOL.... That was my childhood favorite, as an adult I think it was my Dala horses that my husband (boyfriend at that time) bought for me on our first Christmas. I mean he bought me a whole set of them ranging in sizes. Oh man, how I love those horses! =)

  173. My best christmas present? Well, that was the year I set up little riddles all around my house starting in the spare bedroom and ending in the same room. The kids went all over the house finding the riddles and figuring out where the next one was until at the end of it they found a PC and TV wrapped up in the room they started in. Both were convinced that Father Christmas really did exist after that - how else could the big present have magically appeared? For me, the gift is in the giving, not the receiving.
