    I’d love to receive a tablet, especially a Kindle Fire this year. I’m behind on the ebook bandwagon, but I got my first Kindle last year and the kids LOVE it. I’d love to be able to read books in COLOUR with them.

    (But any reading is good.)

    Honestly, all I want for the holidays is to get to spend some time with my extended family, we missed Thanksgiving this year so I haven’t seen everyone together in a year, and I love to see everyone together, it’s such an overwhelmingly loving time of year and I am so happy to be a part of an extended family that genuinely loves one another, even if we live a good distance apart.

    I wouldn’t mind book money or books, my cat’s surgery this fall ate up most of my discretionary spending, but I am awfully grateful to have her healthy, happy and likely with a long life ahead of her. Poor dear. She’d like more cat treats!

I have pretty much everything that I could want, and my family is even taking a trip down to South Carolina (my MiL’s gift to us). Maybe what I wish for is a trip with no family drama, and a semi-peaceful car-ride down there.
