  1. in my family we only buy gifts for the kids, however, I should have my kids write thank you notes to my mom. No gifts from my sister or brother have arrived yet. I don’t have any thank you notes to write, oooo…I just had a great idea…I should leave a little love note thanking my husband for my boots and iPad pillow me bought me after Christmas 🙂
