The chilly weather, temple lights, lit Christmas tree, fighting shoppers (well I did all mine online this year so I lucked out on this one).....all these signs of Christmas just get me so giddy! And.....well there is one certainty that you can always count on in this life....
Presents + Cec = IMPATIENCE!!!
Yup, I was one of those kids who snuck around to find out what I was getting...and Clint knew this....So he was very adamant about hiding my gifts at his mom's house.....well this spoiled any plans I might have considered for finding out what I was getting, so I did what any dignified wife would do.....................I BEGGED!!....needless to say, it worked. We opened all our presents Saturday night.
The best was when Clint went to his mom's to pick up my gifts, I finished wrapping some last minute stuff and stuffing his stocking. He showed up back home a little while later and handed me a bag and told me to open it. I was a little confused because I was expecting the whole "sit down and open gifts together" scenario, but whatever, I ripped it open and found some doggie toys, food, treats.......I was so confused.....he knew (and loved it) so he handed me another bag and this one had more puppy stuff......I was starting to think that I was getting a puppy but there was no puppy to be found and when I asked him he said "well now you have all the stuff and you get to go pick one out!".....I was a little disappointed, so he asked me to come out to the truck to help him unload the rest of the boxes......as soon as I stepped out there was my little sister-in-law holding the cutest little white mini-Schnauzer pup I had ever seen!!!!!!....it was mine....I got a stinkin puppy, I could hardly believe it!
