If you're not familiar with NaBloPoMo, it's "National Blog Posting Month." So yes, another challenge. This is how many in a row now? But, I like these. Challenges prevent me from becoming a lazy blogger. And fresh ideas is always a plus, right?
The theme for December is gifts. What a lovely theme! Here is today's prompt:

What was the first tangible gift you remember receiving?
I had to stop and think about this one for a while. I remember many gifts over the years, but what was the earliest one? I think it was my Cabbage Patch doll, Kasie. I got her for Christmas when I was five, and she was my constant companion for years. She had long brown hair in pigtails. I had written to Santa asking for a Cabbage Patch doll (that was the year they were incredibly popular) and recieving her made me just KNOW he was real! She was later joined by a little brother, Scottty, but she was my special favorite. We still have her; Emma played with her and now she is in storage waiting for Sophie. It won't be long now, though, until she will be out to be loved by another member of our family.
