Ok, I decided to start the sign up a little early since there are quite a few that want in. Please send me your choices to [email protected] by midnight on Sunday, December 28th. I'll try to have assignments posted sometime on Monday the 29th.

There will be no specified item value however I suggest something within the $10-$20 range (not including shipping). Please answer the following for all members of your family (if you wish to include all). This will help everyone to get a better idea of who you are and what type of gift you would like best. You do not have to answer every question, but the more you answer the better everyone will be able to choose a gift for you.
