NO gifts ... nothing wrapped ... nothing promised ... just spending time with my son.  Time is the most precious gift when the time spent is wrapped in love, gratitude and appreciation.

Mine was when my husband stayed up playing games with me on Christmas night since he knew that I was nervous about the version attempt that we had scheduled the next day. We had a 50% chance of it not working which would result in a c-section and birth of our first child. We ended up with our son!

One of my favorite Christmas memories was when I was a teenager-it was just me and my mom and instead of gifts for each other we would volunteer and shop for a family in need. Family and friends really are what it's all about!

Most memorable gift was from my husband - he bought and flipped a house in 2 weeks over the xmas holiday - needless to say we had a great start to the new year

Worst gift started out as one of the best from a customer - they bought me $200 gift certificates to a restaurant I had taken them to and was a favorite of ours. We used the certificates and one day went to use them and they told me they were expired. HUH? How the heck can something you already got  paid for expire?

Needless to say, I've not been back to that restaurant nor have I recommended it in 7 years!
