Adorning my Rainbow Brite pjs, I was not a child who ever snooped through the closets to find my Christmas gifts. I liked the element of surprise. Had I even known where the gifts were hidden, I don't think I would have given into the temptation of peaking.
This year, it wasn't hard for me to find my gifts - because I was the one buying them. Sad to say, but this is the first year I REALLY knew what I was getting :( .... (that should imitate a tear rolling down my computer face). But that isn't too say I didn't LOVE my gifts!
Mr. bought me a new SLR digital camera with all the perks, and though I have forgotten everything I learned in photography classes, I can't wait to take pictures of all my projects and fun times.
However, probably the funniest gift I saw this year was purchased by a dear friend of mine for another friend. My love for umbrellas and the unusual makes this single gift perhaps the most amusing.
A Samurai sword umbrella. Practical and cheeky. love it :) Thanks Julie for finding this wonderful gift, and thanks to Jeremiah for totally appreciating the humor and practicality.
One of my favorite purchases was a for a friend. However, I can not post about the gifts because I know they haven't received it in the mail yet. (That is mainly because the package is STILL sitting in place of where our Christmas tree was!) I will post soon.
Till then, Happy Tuesday.
