Happy Hanukmas and all of that jazz, plus a contest.

I'll stop back later on today to post pictures, videos, and give the details of how (literally) SHOCKED the kids were when the saw their unopened presents. I have never seen James' mouth hang that low in my life so far. THAT was worth all the effort. And Natalie couldn't stop smiling and started grabbing gifts from underneath the tree. She was so giddy. Again, THAT was worth all the effort. It's all about the kids. And having some wonderful family and friends makes it all even more wonderful.

..and you know what else is wonderful? A holiday CONTEST!!! Something I've never done before and wanted to but didn't have anything to give away. But today, I do and it's a one year subscription to "Parents" magazine!! All you have to do is comment here, and tell me what your thankful for, and then a winner at random will be chosen at 6p (our time here) on Sunday evening, the 27th. Get to commenting!!

Wow, what I'm thankful for? I'd have to say I was extremely greatful this year for all of the people whom I'm friends with not allowing Claire to go without a Christmas. It was a very hard year on us and I can't be more thankful than I am for all of the amazing gifts Claire recieved to show how great of a kid she's been this year.
Additionally, I'm thankful that my brother and I had the opportunity to talk for over 2 hours today, for the first time in what felt like years. We hadn't spoken about so much since we lived together back in the day.
I guess my over-all thankfulness would be for my family (near and far), my friends (near and far), and the togetherness of all of us on this special day!
