Too funny my favorite childhood gift was my preemie newborn cabbage patch doll "Julie."

I guess we were both at that age around one of the craziest gift shortages at Christmas time.

My mom said people were at the airport waiting for shipments of Cabbage Patch Dolls.

So you had a Cabbage Patch named Edward? Did he have fangs? ;) How fun that you did this too! You somehow got extra questions! How fun! :)

"I like to whsiper, too"

I still remember looking all over to buy Heidi a Cabbage Patch doll.

I don't know what's worse--the icy roads or the annoying drivers!!!

I hope you get your wish this Christmas of a smooth and wonderful day with family.
