2010



Another great Christmas! Somehow Johnny C and I pull it off every single year. We've trained our kids well - kept the budget low from the start so they are never disappointed. Their cousins get much, much more but ours are still happy - and that's what counts.






We're leaving for Iowa in a few hours. The big SNOW-NAMI of 2009 has petered out. It's been like a normal Minnesota winter week. I was actually looking forward to 20+" of snow, just to see what it looks like.

See you in 2010!

Hope you enjoyed a wonderful Christmas - and have a great holiday in Iowa!

Ahhh, yes. We are really trying to keep it in check with the youngest...the older ones have actually started saying they don't want much.

But they look kind of sad as the youngest opens up a ton of stuff...since they ask for $$$ stuff and she asks for $ stuff...she gets more to even it out. In fact I am quite sure we spent at least $50 more on each of them....

I hope you guys made it to Iowa and back safely. We always have a lite Christmas. We've never had any money, so my girls appreciate whatever they do get. I'm sure if I had money, I'd be tempted to give them more, and they might have grown up with different values. So, I guess there is something positive about being poor, after all.
