We Do Things A LITTLE Differently At Our House



We get Thanksgiving presents at our house for a few reasons: A) I like to get my kids jammies and new coloring books, so why not let them look forward to unwrapping them? 2) We made a deal with them that if they get Thanksgiving presents, they get presents sooner, but not as many for Christmas; it helps the budget. And D) There is usually one really great present that I can't wait to give them. This year is was the Wii Fit. Awesome. We have been working out fools, which has come in handy when combating the number of sugar floating around here.
