When I was little I used to go through toy catalogs and circle things that I wanted Santa to buy me and then I would give the catalogs to my mom and sincerely expect that I would get every single thing I had circled.
Now that I'm sort of grown up and I have to pay my own bills and rent and food and what not, I can't imagine going through toy catalogs and demanding that my parents buy me everything I want. Gosh what a brat I was! Christmas has changed so much for me. I don't care much for lights or trees or treats. I only care that I get to be with my family. With Katie and Camille gone, and KC too now, it isn't easy being the only kid here. I miss them all the time. I absolutely treasure times like these when we are able to be together. Can't really think of anything much better than that.
