Okay, here is the question....
What is your favorite Christmas present that you received....
And what made it so special??
Mine was a "Beautiful Chrissy" doll that I had been absolutely dying for after seeing it advertised on tv for so many weeks leading up to christmas. She was a beautiful doll, with an orange dress, and red hair that was in a pony tail on the top of her head, and that hair "grew" into long hair when you pressed a button on her stomach.
How I loved that doll, and only later when I was older, did my Mom tell me the entire story behind it and how hard it was to get, and that she had bought a returned one that had hair that was mangled and tangled, and didn't go in and out....
She explained to me how she worked tirelessly with 1/4 strands combing the tatters out of that "long" hair so that it would look beautiful for me on Christmas morning! Then my Dad had to fix the "growing" mechanism, because that was broken too (probably why it was returned, along with the fact that someone mauled the hair! LOL) and he got that to work for me too.
When I received that present on Christmas morning, I remember I cried and cried, I was so happy, and I remember my Mom crying too, and only when I was older did I realize why she was crying.....it made me appreciate my "Beautiful Chrissy" doll that much more, and my wonderful mother, for doing everything in her power to make my Christmas wish come true!!!
Ok, now it's your turn to let me know that one special thing that you received.
