If you saw Blogmas Day 21 then you already know this because it was one of the tag questions, but the best present I ever got was a DIY Pot Holder set my mom gave me sometime around ’96 or ’97. I was at the tail-end of Elementary School so to give you some perspective into all things Kaily-tot my hobbies included (but were not limited to): collecting Lisa Frank stickers, killing my tamagotchi pet and trading my younger sister all of my pennies for her silver change.
As you can see, this was before the time of xboxes, cell phones (think Beeper) and the Sims. I actually did things like playing pretend, playing outside and riding my bike. It was a great life.
I’m not sure if my outlook on life was simpler during that stage of my life, or if we just lived in a simpler time in general but either way I miss it. I miss that set, I miss that Christmas and I miss my biggest worry in life being weather or not I’d get spanked for manipulating my sister into sticking things up her nose “to see what would happen.”
What was the best Christmas gift that you ever received!?
