Is your husband, boyfriend or significant other lacking in the gift giving department? Have I got a tip for you! A couple of months ago I had a page published in Creating Keepsakes about Mike's lack of gift giving skills. (It really was a nice layout, I didn't harp too much on the "bad" gift giving and mostly talked about all the nice little things he does for me.) Anyway, every since that page was put out there for public viewing he has stepped up his gifting game. This year for Christmas he did so good. Better than I could even imagine! He, by far, gave me the best gift of the year! A new lens for my camera. I was so shocked!
My second favorite gift was an iPod. I love it! I'm in major downloading songs mode right now. If you've got any must have songs tell me please!
The picture is one of my favorite things to remember this year. Everyone was gathered in the living room to open presents when Drew ran in and yelled "Merry Christmas everyone!" When he got a loud reply of "Merry Christmas!" from everyone else he then said, "okay, lets open presents!"
He was very eager to open the first one but after that he was only interested in playing with the new toy instead of opening the rest of his gifts. He did this every time we opened gifts so it would take forever to open all of them. We even ended up taking some home from Mom's unopened.
This present turned out to be the hit of the year. He has been playing with this train track constantly since he opened it on Christmas. He loves it! We love because it keeps him occupied and he doesn't notice all the extra candy laying around the house. The only downfall is bedtime. He doesn't want to stop playing with it!
So after this Christmas we have decided it's time for a new house. We loved our house when we bought it but with a baby on the way and the already massive amount of toys we have accumulated with Drew it's time to find something a little bigger! We have been wanting to buy a new house anyway so now we are on a mission!
I hope everyone had a great Christmas! We've still got one more this coming weekend and I've got about a million and one things to do before then so I probably won't be blogging till next week. Have a great weekend!
