Just like the one line in a favorite holiday carol, "The Christmas Song": 'to kids from 1-92', everyone in my family fits into that category and therefore we are all kids! So at Thanksgiving when the nephews came up with the idea to pick names and swap gifts at Christmas in the $10 range, we were all on board to participate, and tonight, enjoy the gifts and reveal all the secret santas!
My secret santa was my 12 year old nephew Dylan, and he selected all on his own (according to his mother/my sister) a wonderfully scented candle that I'll defintely use. I was secret santa to my other 12 year old nephew Justin, and I got him a nerf football that got thrown around my sister's house the rest of the day. She was a little nervous of the "breakables" around the house, but I did see it being tossed around anyways.
Thankfully, the secret santa idea was a successful one and everyone was excited to see their gifts!
BSoleille, the bright side of fun gift-giving!
