"You are going to be SO excited at Christmas, Mom."

Mister tells me at bedtime tonight. "Your gardening gloves are really old, right?" 
"Right," I said. "And pretty dirty. And I think I even lost one of them."
"Well," he said. "I can't tell you what I'm getting you for Christmas, but you are going to be SO excited."  

He's right. I already am!

*  Christmas with kids.
* Thinking of others.
* Bedtime.

I'm excited for you, too. New gardening gloves--wa-hoo! The best is that he thinks he is being so secretive. Too cute. Happy Holidays to you, my friend.

Hi, Catherine! I've been looking at your blog lately, and you do such a GREAT job! I was wondering if you would mind if I put a couple of posts up on www.powerofmoms.com and featured them for our December newsletter. We are doing some big revamps of the site over the next few months, and I think your writing would add so much to it. Will you email me at april@powerofmoms.com if that's okay? I'm going to send out the email on Tuesday, I believe. Thanks!

I love how kids think they are keeping a secret when they really aren't. Bryson is totally doing that to Maddy about her present from him. I've had to tell her that we've been debating and I've taken a couple of things back to the store so that she won't know what her present is. Funny kids.
