My two daughters, Sara and Kelly were raised on a farm in Minnesota. When my girls were about 6 and 8 years old, the farming economy was very depressed and our Christmas shopping for that year looked bleak. Money was very tight so there would be few gifts under the tree. As I listened to the girls create their lists from the many TV commercials advertising the latest trends, my heart sank. As a parent, I wanted to provide them the toys they wanted and see the joy on their faces as each package was unwrapped. My girls had the same dreams as other children that Santa and his reindeer would deliver their toys on Christmas Eve.
