What was your favorite gift this year?

... and I don't mean peace on earth, good will to men, or your latest child of grand, or ...

It can be corny.

Although we've pretty much given up on gifts between the two of us, my mom asked me if I wanted another pair of flannel lined jeans.

My husband loved the "worlds' softest socks".

We don't give material gifts to each other anymore; we're thinking of a summer trip to starved rock for a couple of days.

Oh, I didn't mention. A friend of a friend comes to visit her mother and always buys me a can of pate from France (where she lives). Oh,I'm dying for the day when we get a loaf of bread, hubby and I turn off the world, but a lot on the fire, and spend the day eating pate, la brea bread, some cheese, and maybe a bottle of bubbly. Yumm

The best gift I got this year was the present I got for my wife. We moved into a new home this year and she has been wanting pictures of the family to hang on the walls. I was not happy with the pictures I had taken and always put it off. I took some this fall and still told her they were not good enough for me. After a little B&W work in photoshop I found some cool frames. Her reaction was THE BEST present EVER!








She LOVED them!
