Like the movie, was there a gift you "just couldn't live without" when you were little?  Did you get it?

When I was nine, I wanted a dollhouse, and got a fabulous one with working electric lights.  My dad handmade most of the furniture.  I used to love playing with it.  I had everything for it, right down to individual pieces of silverware, and plates of homemade clay food, like milk and oreo cookies.  It had a little stereo that actually had tiny headphones that plugged into it, and teensy little albums with records in them.

I kept it until two years ago, when I passed it on to my best friend's little girl when she turned 9.  Now she and her little sister play with it all the time.

Mine was a Holly Hobbie dollhouse with several small dolls.  It was a plastic house that folded up with a handle.  I loved that thing.

Mine, as I mentioned in a previous thread, was a "Johnny Express", a battery powered tractor, with a flatbed trailer.That thing was HUGE, about 4 feet long (tractor & trailer).

As hard as this may be to believe, mine was a red rider BB gun. My Mom said I couldn't have one because I might put my eye out. I swear I'm telling the truth!

We didn't have a lot of money when I was growing up.  We always had what we needed, and were thankfull for it.  One year my parents got my brother and me a Nintendo for x-mas, that at the time was the coolest thing ever.

My Grandpa used to have a horse named Bourbon.  I loved that horse and that's what I wanted for Christmas.  My Mom took me to see Santa at the mall and I told him I wanted Bourbon for Christmas.  My poor Mom was trying to explain to Santa that Bourbon was a horse, I wasn't a four year old drinker!

Also, I always loved flashlights.  Still do, can't explain it, I love flashlights.

I remember when I was little there was this huge doll head that you can put make-up on--like a Barbie type head with perfect features and blond hair.  It came with make-up and hair rollers.  I wanted this so bad......I did end up getting it but I got bored with it real fast.  It didn't really do anything and putting lipstick on a doll head gets old real quick.  Then I wanted to wear make-up, and of course my mother put an end to that.

I never got a BB gun, but after some talking and whining and conniving, and convincing with the wife my 14 year old son just got his first BB gun. I am happy to report after his first day of shooting, he still has both eyes!

I did get my horse, Bourbon, sort of.  My Grandpa told me the horse was mine after Christmas, but that it still had to live at his house since I lived in the city.  That was fine with me. 

And, I got two flashlights this year.  So it was a good year for me!
