  1. I have five siblings, and my mom has 16 grandchildren between us (I just had #16, my #4, 8 weeks ago). My husband and I just had a conversation (read: disagreement) last night about gift giving. He thinks at our family reunion each summer, we should draw names and have each family only buy gifts for one other family. I hate that idea! I don’t mind getting less gifts, but I love giving! Even if it is a gift card for frozen yogurt. It makes me happy for each of my siblings to get something in the mail from me that has the potential to make them and their family happy. Plus, I know my sisters. They like giving, too! So, even if we drew names, some of us would still get gifts for everyone, and it would make those who didn’t buy for everyone feel like they should reciprocate (at least that is how I would feel). Anyway…it is the season of GIVING, why would I want to give less! My husband doesn’t get it, and he still wants to propose it to my sisters. He should know better than to mess with the five of us! 🙂 Someday, I want to be the kind of grandma who shops for thoughtful gifts for each of my individual grandchildren/great grandchildren.

    Oh, also…I wrapped pacifiers and a rubber teether toy for our new daughter (who will be 2 months old on Christmas Eve) to put in her stocking. I am not quite sure why. Haha.

    I love the idea of you and your husband buying things for the baby without telling each other what they are. How fun!

    1. Yea if it makes you and your sisters happy then I wouldn’t mess with the system 😉

      Opening up our son’s gifts was something out of a comedy movie as of course I bought him 2 small gifts and my husband bought him 2 big gifts. Then he fell asleep in my arms right before he was going to open the biggest gift from his grandparents. Hope you had a great Christmas!
