I think this is one of my favorite gifts ever. My sister got this for me last year. We all loved to watch The Christmas Story together. I think the movie is so funny, but now, when I watch it, I realize how much bad language is in the movie! For that reason, my kids don't watch it. However, I've still got this lamp to keep the memories alive!
True story: When we got the lamp, and pulled "her" out of the packaging, we set her on the table. Instantly my son runs his hands up the nylon leg and says "Mom, is this going in MY room?" He was not even 4 years old, and he said that. So funny. I slapped his hand and said "No!"
So here she sits, next to the computer. We use to keep her next to a window, so she can shine her light for everyone to see, but there isn't an appropriate window do display her glory in our new house. When people come over, they usually reply to my husband: "I can't believe your wife lets you have that lamp!" Then I reply, much to their astonishment: "Oh, it's MY lamp! Not his!" It's my major award! I have to say, it really gets the best reaction when the missionaries come over!
