Hey Gang, We had a lovely holiday at the Havens house. We hosted a big Christmas Eve party with family from both sides and a few friends. We ate Mexican food, sang carols and opened a few presents.
The next morning the kids, the hub and I opened presents. My husband tricked me this year and it worked. On Christmas morning he gave me some prints of Paris I had coveted at one of the many antique stores we've visited the last few months. I was so surprised that he had remembered. And I absolutely loved the prints. But I have to admit I was a little surprised. My selfish, spoiled self was like, "He bought that giant red truck, and I get a couple of prints?" I know. I'm terrible. But I didn't say it out loud. Well, until today.
Christmas Day dinner was at my husband's sister's house, which is just a few blocks away. Before the meal began, my husband told me he wanted me to go upstairs to see something one of the nephews got for Christmas. I followed him up, and there it was, the chest I'd been wanting for my office. It had been in the same booth as the prints. I'm posting pictures of both gifts below. And he actually said, "I bet you were thinking he got that big truck and all I got was a couple of prints." LOL. Does that man know me or what?
Have you received a wonderful or fun gift for the holidays? I want to hear about it.
