As I sit here laboring over the glorious chore of untangling our monthly financial home budget, I realize Christmas is getting near. Wifey and I always do our best attempting to create the perfect Christmas morning for our six little girls.
We scour the internet for gift ideas and reach to the back of our brains in an endless effort to find something our girls will appreciate and find useful without breaking the bank. This year, as a family, we have declared to only give gifts we can make with our hands so that they come from the heart and not some nameless catalog.
With Wifey's mastery of homemade bread, I'm sure that will be the centerpiece of many gift baskets to extended family. Her self-taught sewing skills have grown by leaps and bounds and undoubtedly will contribute numerous items to the gift giving. Personally, I have become quite good at making jerky from hamburger and will most likely contribute in that respect...at least, if I don't eat it all first.
To skip to the point of my post, I'd like to ask my readers (if I have any left after my short hiatus during October) what is the best gift you can remember getting from YOUR father? Particularly, I'm interested in hearing what you female readers remember getting from your fathers OR what you Dads have been proud to give your little girls. Raised as an only child (most) of my young life, I can't say I was exposed much to giving gifts to young women. Since I have six, I could use some ideas. Thanks in advance.
So, what was the best gift your Daddy ever gave you?
