It blows Mike’s mind that I don’t care about knowing what all of my Christmas presents are. And it drives my mother nuts that she never has anything to surprise me on Christmas morning anymore. But the truth is that I just don’t care about surprises anymore.
I’d much rather know that I’m getting things I like, and that I won’t have to run around in the days after Christmas returning and exchanging things. It really doesn’t bother me to know everything that is under the tree. Plus it helps my momma out because I can run around and go shopping with her and not have to have her worry about sneaking presents. It’s really a service that I do, ya know? I’m just doing daughterly duties. 😉
On another Christmasy note, and to conveniently help me be more womanly, I have been invited to a Christmas
Cookie Party. Every person will bring a different type of Christmas cookie, a dozen for each of the attendees, and everyone will walk away with tons of cookies! It’s a really cool idea and I’m pretty excited about it. So this weekend, I’ll be seeing about some cookies, but I’m pretty sure I’m going to make these cookies to the right.
Oh the Christmas season is in full swing!
