i am sure most of you are way ahead of me on the whole preparing for christmas thing. if we are on your list to buy presents for, we have a few requests. what it boils down to is we have enough stuff. we are trying to de clutter and simplify our lives and our home. the girls have tons of toys and plenty of clothes. the thing we value most is time together as a family. with that in mind, i would like to request presents that are consumable. like a gift card to the movies, or the houston zoo, or a restaurant. things that would be fun for us to do as family, but don't require us to store and keep things. experiences and memories.
