Day 13 – Christmas Gift Suggestions, a new bike and a holiday in a box!

I received the following from a church friend and wanted to share it with you.


Christmas gift suggestions:

To your enemy, forgiveness.

To an opponent, tolerance.

To a friend, your heart.

To a customer, service.

To all, charity.

To every child, a good example.

To yourself, respect.

Today my daughter Jane finally got to try out her birthday present – her new bicycle.


Christmas survey continued…

What is your most memorable Christmas Gift?

I planned to share a Christmas paper scrapbook page about a memorable Christmas gift. However as I was photographing it today, I realised the amount of “digital” parts of the pages that I would now call a “hybrid” page. I made this before I really even discovered digital scrapbooking existed, and had only been paper scrapping a few months. Little did I realise how I much I would become involved in digital scrapbooking within the year!

It records the moments at Christmas 2005 when our children discovered their surprise Christmas present from us was a trip to Walt Disney World, Florida and we were going within 2 weeks. Their faces at the moment of realisation is priceless! I am still quite proud of my idea to give the present as a Mickey Mouse helium balloon, with a note attached. I also included a scanned image of Sarah’s thankyou letter which she wrote in school and it includes the classic line

“I didn’t think a holiday would be in a box”.

So what is one of your most memorable Christmas gifts?

Come back tomorrow,

and until then, take care.
