My 365...

Christmas tradition in our home, is that there are no gifts under the Christmas tree until Christmas eve.  As a child growing up, I loved the huge contrast of seeing an empty tree base going to bed on Christmas eve, and waking to find all the new gifts piled high.

Another reason for doing gifts this way is because I am terrible at saying no to the annual question...

"Mom, can I just open 1 gift today?"

By the time Christmas gets here, all the gifts will be

This morning I noticed a pile of nicely wrapped little gifts that I had not placed there.  When I asked the boys, Blake told me they were his gifts.

"Gifts for who son?"

"Those are for my Coopey mom.  I went through all my toys, and got my favorite ones I don't play with anymore and wrapped them for Cooper.  I want him to have a ton of gifts to open from uncle Blake when he gets here."

Awwwww.  :*)  I have the best son in the world.  <3

 Grandson Cooper has the best uncle in the whole wide world.  :)

 Uncle Blake.  <3

"Hey Blake, are any of those gifts for me?"
 "You are going to have to wait until Christmas to find out Dozer."

"Oh bother..."
