a sampling of a few things that entered our home this Christmas
oh, and of course panties. (no photos of that one)
One of my favorite parts of Christmas day after all the gifts have been opened is hearing the "Christmas Shopping for Mom" report. Scott always takes the kids shopping a couple days before Christmas and it is always an adventure. Here's the run-down . . .
Payton is such a good boy. He always comes in for me. This year he picked out a bag and lap desk for my new lap top. Good job Payton.
Anna determined that she wanted to get me a book. As Scott and the boys read book titles to her, one with the word "cat" in the title stuck out and she had to have it. Scott (who hates cats) was able to deter her from that one and she eventually settled on a hardcover, coffee table book all about puppies. So if you want to know anything about breeds, sizes, eating & personality habits, I've got you covered.
Conner's story takes the cake. So they set out shopping and he said, "I want to get mom some clothes so I can get back at her for always buying me clothes." Oh, I just have to laugh. He hates getting new clothes for his birthday (he usually gets one new outfit), and so you know we have to taunt him about it . . . like, wrapping all his birthday gifts in clothes boxes. Scott tried to explain to him, "you know, Conner, Mom actually likes to get new clothes so I don't think you would be getting back at her." His second idea was a Twilight Video Game. Big surprise, they don't make those (not much of a market for video games geared towards teenage girls). So plan C was back to clothes and I have to say that he picked well.
