    One of those sugar Easter eggs where you look in the hole and see a furry chick sitting amid some green coconut grass. I loved it and cherished it for something like four years before one of our Bassett Hound dogs finally ate it, she had been wanting it the whole time. Now whenever I see one of those I smile.

    I can’t really recall, but I know I loved my Polaroid camera. I love to take pictures and I still have it. But i also loved my Cabbage Patch doll, too.

    My mom did not have much money-pretty poor. But she always has gotten the most thought out gifts. When I was about 10 for Christmas I woke up to a beautiful home-made white vanity with a cute little white padded chair with gold brass! lol It meant the world and I kept it for a long time-wish I still had it! She made it herself, so it was special!

    The best gift as a child.We didnt have much,but I loved recieving new crayons and coloring books.I have the bestest gift story when i turned 13.Is that still classified as in the child category?Oh well here it goes.I loved real butter on my potatoes,we could never afford real butter.Only when we went to my grandparent Frooms.Then I would eat 2 full plates of potatoes with real butter.Well on my 13th birthday,all the family came down for cake.My Grandma frooms gift was the heaviest.No what she gave me for my 13th birthday.A bag of potatoes and a pound of REAL BUTTER.I was so xcited.That was the best gift I had ever recieved growing up.She knew me so well.The smile on both of our faces was priceless,and if I close my eyes now, i can still see the look and the feelings all wrapped up in that gift.That was my bestest gift ever.:)

    That was so nice to read everyone’s favorites. I’m not sure what I would say is my favorite? The little Suzy home baker oven. I made my brother little cakes all the time. Such a little homemaker.

    I guess I’d say my bike. It was my only way to get out of the house and far away where no one could find me if that’s what I wanted. It was baby blue. I think I was around 10. I think! I have such a hard time remembering things like this.

    Probably the “anything book” that I begged for. To write my poems and stuff in. This told me that my parents thought my writing was worth keeping.

    I should probably say my violin, which was surely the most expensive ever. But I got tired of the violin once it became a duty to practice it. That “anything book” is still among my prized possessions. It contains a poem I wrote about my baby brother when I was 10, and lots of heartfelt stuff I wrote as a young teen.

    I would say my “Number 4” bike as I called it. I received it on my 7th birthday. It was a black Huffy with the number 4 plastered all over it. It was the shizz! 😀

    Our best family present ever was our Atari 2600. My brother & I stayed up for 36 hours straight playing it.

    My best present was a new bedroom set that had a canopy bed. I think I was 9 at the time.

    I’d have to say the childhood books that I still have to this day. I have maybe six books I got from my grandmother and one from my parents. The fact that I’ve kept them so long & still cherish them puts them in the category of *best*.
