This time of year my kids are obsessed with lists. To make life easier on our extended family we started each of the boys an Amazon wish list. They update daily well into December and can often be heard running down the hall yelling, "Oh, I forgot something!" To further uncomplicate things, we forced Lou to get a list too. Have you ever tried buying for a grown man who is into electronics? "Now that was a what kind of graphics card?" Since that was everyone but me with a list, I joined in. Now I know that the things on our grown up Christmas list are usually things like health, job security, happiness for our kids, or a new house in my case.... but those things are hard to wrap. When I started my list I found I didn't know what I wanted. Didn't I know ME at all? What did I want anyway?
crock pot. I started small. This one however has settings that allow you to cook meat to a certain temperature and then keep it safely warm until you get home, it can start and stop on schedule with the push of a button and can all but cook the meal without me. After consistently leaving my crock pot on for a couple hours longer than anticipated and finding a less than savory meal waiting, this would be a God send. Further practicality prevailed with the addition of a gas grill and a heavy duty blender.
Then I started loosening up....
When I came across this one I was in LOVE. I have an obsession with the Union Jack and this seemed like the perfect way to keep it with me all the time. Heehee. If Santa doesn't come through this one is going to find it's way here by the new year.
How about you. If Santa was to visit your house, would he (or you) know what you really wanted?
