This one is a toughy for me. My parents are the greatest when it comes to Christmas. One Christmas that leaps out at me was when I was 15 (I think) and I got my first car and tickets to a certain boy-band concert, who shall remain nameless but starts with an N. :) My best-friend also got tickets to the same concert but she was sworn to secrecy until I called her to scream. My poor brother endured a lot of teenage-girl screaming that Christmas.
Two years ago, on Christmas morning at 1:30am to be exact, I was given the gift of life. No, I didn't have a baby. Brian and I were leaving his dad's house and I was following him in my new car (that I had for six weeks) when a drunk driver ran a red light and drove through the front of my car. Had I been an inch closer to Brian's car, they would have driven through me.
(My car is the black one.)
Sorry for being a Debbie Downer this morning, but I was (and still am) very thankful to be around those that love me at the holidays.
Last year, Brian gave me an awesome gift - my Kitchenaid Mixer.
I'm excited to see what Santa brings this year. As I grow up, I even more excited to see people's reactions to what is given to them.
Have a GREAT Thanksgiving! Safe travels if you are traveling to see family!! Enjoy those pat-downs at the airport, haha. :)
