Enough Madness...

Gift giving is crazy in a big family. You go back and forth "Here you go, Merry Christmas!", "Ooo! What did you get?" and on and on. Then that family has babies. And those babies have babies and on and on. This is my family. As of tonight I had enough. I have called each family, informed them of the madness, taken their names and drawn them a name to gift. Done. Over. No more madness. *sigh* Now, what to do about that fruitcake issue...

My husband actually likes the fruitcake...

Amen to that! It seems like we forget the meaning of Christmas and the value of simplicity especially with gift giving. I blame WalMart.
