Merry Christmas. Yes, always one more gift to buy or my son's ex-girlfriend because I still like her. She would have made good daughter-in-law. Boo

Hell no!!! I shop all year long for Christmas, so I've been done. If I happen across something I like for someone, at a great price, I'll pick it up and throw it on the pile.

Jimmy - don't worry about it. I really don't need anything.

Merry Christmas everyone!

I hear you MOM!!

My Son called off a wedding to his high school sweetheart five years ago.
I was devastated ,loved this girl as much as any MIL could.

I taught my son always to do the right thing,he did!
I now have a wonderful DIL and a beautiful grandaughter
Best of all my son is happy!

Merry Christmas!
