Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories Christmas Shopping

I have said that our Christmas's were always very lean.  The family knew that presents under the tree would not be Racer Bikes, Madame Alexander Dolls, or Big TV's.  We would usually wait until the last minute ie two days before Christmas and look for good sales or go to a thrift store.  The understanding of this is shown in Lil' Miss Sunshine's  letter to Santa done when she was in the first grade.
