I can't believe it's almost Valentines Day and I haven't posted about Christmas!! I'm so lame!! We moved 6 days after Christmas Day though...... does that give me any type of excusable lameness? Probably not.
Christmas 2009 was different than the past three years because we'd actually been making money for the months prior and I was able to have a little more freedom when buying gifts. For example, when I found the object (a KitchenAid) of my baking affections on sale, I went for it.
****I now remember why I haven't posted about Christmas 'til now****
As I clicked the "Buy Now" button, Jeff made sure I knew that was my Christmas present for the year. As a comeback, I told him that since I'd bought MY gift, he was in charge of purchasing HIS gift.
Totally fair, right?
Every few days I'd question what he'd bought for himself, or what he was planning to buy. Jeff would scrunch his nose and shake his head as if he didn't now what he wanted. I wasn't really sure what to do. So Christmas morning came around and there was nothing for Jeff under the tree. (By the way, there was nothing for me either because I hadn't wrapped the KitchenAid. It sat in the shipping box off to the side.
So there was some guilt that day. I felt bad that Jeff hadn't gotten anything. His fault though, right? Does that give me the Worst Wife in the World title?
The boys made out pretty well. Jungle animals, WALL-E toys that closed into a cube, a Leapster 2, a battery operated train that smoked out the chimney, a pirate ship, puzzles, family games, and of course stocking stuffers with too many treats.
