So for Christmas this year, Shelby asked for a day with mom. (I know...awwwwwww!) Ü I made up a big certificate for her good for 'one day with mom' and included gc's to her favorite store here in Lynden, Homespun General Store, and Build A Bear. We started with tea at Lynden's Cup of Tea. I cannot say enough good things about this place! If you've never been, you must go. What an absolutely wonderful time. It's probably not a guy type hang out...but I've decided the girls and I are going to go once a month on Saturday for tea & scones. Just so fun! The coolest thing is, Shelby's gift was a gift to me too. We had such a great time together...just the two of us. Ü
Ian...on the other hand, got a Scooby Doo shaving kit for Christmas this year. I think he forgot about it until this morning when he was in the tub and asked for that "thing for his cheeks". He did the whole works, shaving cream, "razor" (no blade of course!), after shave gel...plus he used his new comb and chap stick when he got out. He was one spiffed up little boy for church this morning! Ü
My folks will be here any minute. We're playing cards for a little while and plan to eat lots of stuffed mushrooms. Ü The kids all think they're staying up until midnight. We'll see. Happy New Year's Eve to you all!
