To buy...

On the day after Thanksgiving, my 10-year-old brother came shopping with me. Standing in the center of the crowded mall, he pulled out a tattered list and showed it to me. "This is who I need to get Christmas presents for."

As you can see from the check marks, he's made a lot of progress (you should also know that there's another side to the list, filled with even more people!). Giving presents away makes him the happiest kid in the world :)

I take my cues from my brother, when the commercialism of the season starts to take over my thinking... because Christmas really is about giving.

Haha! Yep... but notice the big "X" next to it. I think he crossed himself off! :D

Oh my goodness! That is soo precious! Why is something next to our names blurred? Is that a hint? lol. He's SOOO sweet! What a rare picture, Edward smiling! LOL! :) Keep that baby for sure!

I laughed out loud when I saw Sugar on there. Soooo funny.

Georgia, he IS a sweetie :)

Erin, it's blurry because he wrote down what he bought you. I had to promise him I'd blur the words out if I blogged the picture!
