Christmas List 2009

My mother-in-law called hubby yesterday to remind us that she needs our Christmas lists ASAP, because it’s only 8 weeks until Christmas!  Yes, it’s that time of year again!

Let me preface the list by explaining why I’m writing a Christmas list at 26.  No, it’s not because I’m a spoiled brat.  Actually, in my family adult Christmas lists aren’t really done.  In hubby’s family, however, they’re expected…and the earlier in the year the better.  I have to say, I’ve come to value the beauty of the Christmas list.  It allows family who want to give a gift to do so in an enlightened way, rather than taking a blind stab in the dark. 

So, when I write my Christmas list, I’m not saying “yo, buy me shit”, I’m saying, “hey, if you happen to want to get me a gift and need an idea, I’ll helpfully supply some.”  And of course I appreciate the same, for those in my family who care to write a list of their own.

And, here it is:
