Pigs for Christmas

So my sister Kendra loves pigs (not so much anymore) and for years practically all of the gifts she would receive had something to do with pigs since everybody knew it was a mild interest she had. Finally one year she made the declaration- NO MORE PIGS! and since then she's received very few pig things indeed.

This illustrates very nicely the point of this post. I had no idea until Anna (sister-in-law with lettuce-covered baby) told me and then Bryan confirmed that nobody knows what to give me for presents. Then just last week Alison (sister-in-law with pierced ears) asked me what I wanted for Christmas. I had no idea I was such a problem! And so, with Alison's permission to make such a post without coming off as greedy (haha- as if I don't want so many presents- of course I do), I have decided to list for you some things I have been thinking of that I would love to receive year after year like Kendra's pigs.

The Pig List:
-cookie cutters
-cake decorating tips (the little metal pieces that go at the end of a tube of frosting, not great ideas)
-classic or otherwise great quality children's books
-clothes
-cute, trendy things that people don't usually buy for themselves because they can't justify spending money on something so impractical

By the way, I am getting you a pig for Christmas. No, but that list was a good idea. I will return the present I got for you already, which was a machine that makes chocolate dollar bills.
