To have all of our of our children and seven grand children for dinner at the same time on Christmas Day. This is getting to be difficult, they all have two sets of grand-parents and they must spend time with both.
Also, as they get older, the grand children have boy friends/girl friends and must spend time with both sets of parents as well.
Hugs from my daughter and grand children, My grandmothers home made molasses cookies.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
an announcement from my 20 year old that he has found a full time job that pays well...

At this stage in my life,I'm fairly content.
Altho I could use cruises on the Century,and Liberty.
A Corvette,and the young accessory that goes in the passenger seat.
More hair on my head,my real teeth back.
Oh,a box of cigars,and some good booze with good company!
See Ya on chat!
Like James, I am also very content. What I would like most is a new kidney for my dear DIL's mother. She is 51 years old and is on dialysis. Hopefully we will receive news next week that she will be placed on the donor list.

I'm very blessed and content also. Can't think of anything I need. The wife and I are blessed with good health, our kids are in good health, and our parents are in good health to be in there 70's And to have jobs that allow us to go on cruises.
My mom asked me the other day what I wanted for Christmas. My answer was, "I just want one thing, for all of us to have a family Christmas dinner together. No presents needed, the time together and the fellowship of spending the day together would be , and is priceless
Wishing all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year;

I would like my younger son to come down here for a visit. He hasn't been down in several years but we have gone north to see him. He's the one who used to kiss me all the way up my arm when he was a little boy.The elder son has been coming down every year now for his winter vacation. It would be nice to have them both here at the same time, too. I do hear from the younger one by phone and IM.
A second gift would be to have a helper upstairs with me in the Assisted Living Area where I work. I did have the chance to talk with the owner of our facility on Thursday and told him my wish. His answer was that I would just have to be cloned!! Sometimes it's difficult to be in two or three places at once.
It would also be wonderful to get up to Toronto to see my dad and give him a big hug. I haven't seen him in 10 years and now he's not able to travel anymore. Thank goodness for the telephone--it would be nicer if they would give in to e-mail!
I hope you all get the present you request. Just believe and get on that Polar Express!!
I'd love to have a grandchild BUT I'd also love for my daughter to be married first. I really miss my deceased husband and I know asking to have him back seems a bit unfair, I know God needed him more than my daughter and I did but we miss him, after 10 years that void is still there and always will be...
Happy Holidays to everyone,
Enough of the altruistic and the warm and fuzzy!!!!! . I WANT A LEXUS SUV!!!!
However I will settle for a more peaceful planet and good health in my family.

I think I've come to a point in life where , like so many of you, there isn't much in the way of material stuff that I can think of that I want. The gift of time seems the most precious. I like gifts that mean time spent with my loved ones. Of course that could include cruises, trips to my favorite places, or anything that involves time together having fun.
What I want for Christmas is housecleaning crew to come into my house before and after Christmas and shampoo the carpets and just make the house look great. I want my hubby to find a career that he loves and is successful at. I have that kind of job satisfaction and I would love it for him. I also want a 15 day cruise to Hawaii with spending money and a spa day I would love to try a hot stone massage.
Oh yeah and peace on earth and good will to man
