We were all outside watching Clark Griswald (hubby) decorate the outside of the house when Zman brought up Christmas gifts. I asked him what he was planning on getting me and he replied "how about I make you a nice picture or something?" My response..."what a homemade Christmas gift...what am I going to do with it after Christmas...toss it in a box with all the other pictures you and Love have made? I want something I can use like a new purse or something (slow your roll folks he knows I am kidding and I love my kids pictures)
Zman-Your just kidding right mom?
Hubby-Zman I think you just came up with a great idea; we won't buy any presents this year we will just make homemade Christmas presents.
Me-That is a great idea!
Zman-What...no real presents? Well just what Santa brings of course.
Me-No we are going to save Santa a trip this year and tell him that we are just making pictures and stuff and there is no need to stop here.
Hubby-Just think how meaningful it will be; you know the meaning of Christmas is about giving?
Zman-I know I know. But really no Santa presents?
