tis the season!

its officially christmas!! today i finished decorating my tree completely (it took me a couple of days this year with two little ones!) and tonight we went to the temple to hear our stake choir perform. its so beautiful with all the decorations and lights. i would have taken some pictures but someone is keeping my camera hostage!! (you know who you are!) i love listening to and singing christmas songs. this year is charlottes first christmas and shes old enough to enjoy opening presents and what not. i realize she'll like the wrapping paper more than the gift but thats ok! now all i have to do is finish (or start rather!!) my christmas shopping so i can relax and enjoy the holiday without stressing. rick has asked me not to buy him anything this year and im sorely tempted to take him up on that since hes such a pain in the butt to shop for. whats everyone opinion on that? do i take him for his word and not get him anything or do i ignore him and buy him some presents? what would you do?? oh i love christmas! i hope everyone is enjoying their holiday as much as i am!! merry christmas!!

Ignore him, it's a trap!:) No, really I just think that everyone likes something to open, even if they don't think they will.
Oh, and I responded to your comment on Anna's blog.
Merry Christmas to you!

You do have a camera phone don't you? hehe, don't worry you'll have your precious camera soon....

Ben told me the same thing this year. I, of course didn't listen. I went out & bought him a really nice watch. Then last night he decided to lecture me on the real meaning of Christmas & that he REALLY doesn't want a gift. I said well, I already got you something. He reminded me again what Christmas is about & I said okay I'll return it then! I said you want to know what I got you? He said sure. I brought it out, he put it on, then said yeah I would never wear this it's too heavy. SOOO, I'm happy to tell you that I will have no stress at all this year. Because my BIGGEST stress every year is buying my husband a gift.

DON'T buy him anything. These are literal, logical men who want only one thing: Their wives to save their money!!
DO it and trust me you'll pay for IT!!
Love you & thanks again for the recipe!!

I would say get something... or a few little things. Everyone likes to unwrap something on Christmas!
