When my kids were still very young, I spend the better part of my Christmas money shopping for their clothes, shoes and gifts. I normally buy them three changes of clothes, two pairs of shoes, and at least three gifts each. My hubby did not mind though. On the onset, he knew I was one crazy mom so he never really bothered with my eccentricities. I no longer go 'crazy' buying my kids stuff for Christmas. They're all grown up and the novelty of new clothes and toys is long gone. Now, they want cars, laptops, Ipods, travels, Blackberry, etc. The only thing I can afford is a blueberry or strawberry. Sigh!

It's so nice to look back at years past and reminisce. When my kids were at this youthful stage, I couldn't wait for them to grow up. Now that they're all grown up, I wish they were young and dependent on me again. I so miss buying my girls all those frilly silly dresses. Looking at these old pictures, I am reminded how good my son smelled when he was still a wee boy. Now? Nevermind! Christmas past makes me sort of.... sad.
