When my daughter was 2, the only thing she wanted was an apple. It's a tradition now that every year she gets an apple at the bottom of her stocking.

This year, she asked for a giant pink gem, and the real Silvermist. I got her a pink gem-shaped paperweight, and a Silvermist doll.

DS14 has asked for some interesting gifts over the years. In 4th grade or so, he got an electric typewriter.

This year, he asked for stock and a horse head mask.

If you feel like a laugh, read the reviews for the horse mask on Amazon. The pictures by owners are pretty funny, too.

According to mum I haven't really asked for anything crazy, but apparently one year I asked for a TV, she said it was too expensive and I said "Okay, a teddy then" LOL

The Christmas after 9/11, my son was 6, he asked for a big American Flag to hang on his wall.

He got it and it's still there.

DS asked for duct tape this year. Last year it was ketchup. My favorite though was when he was five. He wanted a hamster with four legs.

DD3 wants a shark and a dolphin. That's it. She's been very consistent about it, too. Thankfully, she hasn't specified it they need to be real or not.

You may now call me SCHBRVM'smom.

Candy corn, which was surprisingly hard to find on December.

Bubble wrap! I bought a huge roll from Office Max and they had a ball with it!

My daughter asked for acorns. Luckily my friend knitted her two little acorns with happy faces and removable caps. Sooooo cute. She still plays with them.

This year, DS12 has asked for business cards and a goat....

Since he is mostly non-verbal, we have no idea what his plans are....

My son asked for Oxyclean when he was 4.

Yes, Santa got it for him and he then would always ask if I used his Oxyclean on his clothes.

When DD was 4 she wanted Space Bags. A commercial for them was on TV all the time and she was fascinated with how they work.

When DS was 3, his favorite color was orange. He asked for orange towels, orange sheets, orange batmans, orange crayons and orange paint. It was a definite challenge coming up with orange colored toys!

When my sister was 14, my dad asked her what she wanted for Christmas. Jokingly, she told him cotton balls. My dad bought her 1000 cotton balls, all wrapped in groups of 50. I can't even remember what I got for Christmas that year, but I remember my sister's cotton balls!

I remember DD's first visit with Santa where she actually asked for something instead of having her picture taken very well. She asked for a total of two things: a candy cane and a doll. I already had both purchased. Santa told this toddler that he didn't bring candy canes to kids because they were choking hazards. How about letting me make that decision, Santa?

LOL...at least at 15 you likely won't have the same problem I did when DS (then 4) got his. Doorbell rang, DS ran and threw it open and I heard him scream "I got a big Woody!!". (Oh ya, it was one of the pastors from our church standing there)

But, I digress...weirdest thing DS asked Santa for (and really, really wanted) was a pink lawn flamingo. Ever try finding one of those in the middle of a Canadian winter?
