DAY 4 ~ Wives Of Faith Blog Carnival

Welcome to Day 4 of the Wives of Faith 12 Days of Christmas Blog Carnival! Today's topic is: "Best Christmas present I ever received"

I thought on this topic for a little while and could not come up with just one gift that stood out to me. My family has always given me everything that I asked for plus more. While I love it all, there are a few gifts that have stood out to me.

1. My favorite gift as a child, was when I got the Barbie Dream kitchen that I had wanted more than anything! I can still (many years later) remember that kitchen and the hours and hours of fun I had playing with my kitchen.

2. As a teenager, my mom gave me one of her rings that she received when she was a teenager. The ring is sooo pretty...silver, shaped like a heart with a small diamond on it. I wish I could still wear it...it fits my pinky now =) I can not wait until my little girl is a teenager so I can pass it on to her.

3. As a adult, I would have to say that last year's gift was the best. It was not a gift that was under the tree or hanging in the stocking or a gift that I was able to unwrap. It was the gift that my hubby was able to take his 2 weeks R&R during Christmas. Even though he was not home on actual Christmas day, he was here just before it and we were able to celebrate it early for the children and he could be a part of it.
