I know YOU don't need me to type this, but for other people that don't know me, I'm kidding.

I actually thought that clip was pretty great - and focused on the right things. So I thank you.

In fact, consider my thanks your Christmas gift. See? I'm a giver.

And I fully expect a gift from you to me this Christmas of the same magnitude as you always have done. :)

Anne, you are too funny! And I know you were kidding!!

Great Post. I feel the same way.

Guess what you made it through your first week of blogging. :)

Great clip. It is true we often forget the true meaning of Christmas, and I'll be the first one to admit that I always go overboard with the boys. I have always gotten them whatever they wanted, but with the economy the way it is that won't happen this year. I guess in a way this could be a good thing, because it will force us to concentrate on what is really important in life and relearn the true meaning of the holiday.

Ginger, this video nearly brought me to tears. Oh how I wish I could make Christmas in my very own family more like this. I've been trying for years and still end up getting stressed out and buying way too much. And then 2 months later none of it matters.

Thanks for this post.
