saving Santa


There's been a new volley in the war between naughty and nice over at SCS today. About 23 of us were somehow relegated to the naughty list of Santa and we've spent the last few weeks trying to change that situation.  Today, I offer an alternative...I know I've been practicing my nice skills on DH, just in case Santa doesn't stop at MY house this year. 

I remember being married just a few years and noticing my in laws didn't exchange gifts at Christmas time.  I thought how sad, and then my dear FIL told me, "If there's something we want, we just go get it."  Now with DH and I being so specialized in our hobbies, we've just about done the same! Gift cards are loving wrapped in huge boxes and placed under the tree...one size does fit all!  Which reminds me, I need to head over to Bass PRO.com.  Anyone else arrived at this place in their gift giving?

What a FUN card Susan...I'm all for the one-size-fits-all gift:) My kids are great about getting me Impress gift cards for my birthday {that rocks}.

I've tagged you this morning Susan...no pressure to play :)

As someone on the Nice List I will put in a good word for you, I'd be happy to give a good reference!!
We are in the same boat (hehehe) with our gift giving. I just bought stamps last month (too many) and thank hubby sweetly for the advance birthday present. But then when my actual birthday rolled around I was ready for more stamps, new catalog coming and all... He said didn't I already buy you a birthday gift? I said but that was so LONG ago.

How fun ! I love your layered nesties (I see you finally own them!) great colors on this Susan and such a fun sentiment! I fell onto the nice list - but somehow it seems like it's more presitigious to be on the naughty one!!!????
