Alas, no! I'm on the 'naughty' list. (Seriously no – we don't celebrate 'Santa'.)

Would that be the best gift
Would that be the best gift according to the toddler or the best gift according to the mom? Those might be mutual exclusive terms. lol As a tot, one of my boys received that tool box with pegs that you hammer down, then flip it over and hammer them down again...over and over and over and... He loved it. Me, not so much. After listening to BLAM! BLAM! hour after hour (or so it seemed) I was ready to take the hammer after the gifter. We're a bit low on toddlers this year, but if I were buying gifts for that age, I'd probably steer clear of electronic toddler toys and opt for activity toys.
There are tons of cute things
There are tons of cute things to wear while pregnant during the holidays, I think it's harder to mask the physical aches and pains then finding the right outfit. ;)
Aw Tiffany! Maybe try
Aw Tiffany! Maybe try describing yourself as a simply scrumptious "fluffy" marshmallow instead! LOL Actually, like Julie, I find *other* pregnant women absolutely beautiful in all shapes and sizes. I'm certain that you and your gorgeous growing bump are stunning. On a side note -- can't believe you are this close! It always floors me how much faster OTHERS' pregnancies go by! One of the biggest challenges for me towards the end of pregnancy was trying to get comfortable at night to sleep. Is that something that you are struggling with as well? The recliner became my friend! Best wishes! Can't wait to "meet" your little ones!
Not if you are pregnant with twins due at the beginning of Jan..
Then if you're me you will look like a swollen grumpy marshmallow. Tiffany
Stylish at 40 weeks, hmmmm
My son was born December 18. I"m pretty sure that the first option -- mistaken for Santa would have been quite apt if I'd only had a fluffy white beard! I didn't feel particularly stylish or sexy, but funny thing -- I think other pregnant moms look beautiful.
LOL -- I believe that I
LOL -- I believe that I fluctuated between all three with my own pregnancies! With some it depended upon the stage I was in. (The one with my due date ON Christmas day? I KNOW Santa was running scared!) Others - how I felt any particular moment... I do love it when I feel "sexy" during pregnancy (granted -- others perhaps may not have seen me that way, but my dh was happy! *wink*) Ah... and then those where definitely if you'd asked I likely would have wanted to curl up with my candy cane and plaid "snuggie" and slippers. (Btw, the peppermint does help with morning sickness!)
What about you? Did you have a hard time choosing?

Can you look stylish if you're pregnant at Xmas?
Are you kidding? I fear that if I wear red that I'll be accosted by tots seeking an audience with the "Big Guy"!
