I got 'em!!

I didn't get either of my kids the presents they asked for and I surprised them both! As most of you know my son is a major Mets fan. Way back in June I heard TJMaxx had Mets jackets on sale. I ran to the nearest one and got this Mets jacket.
See that grin? It wasn't on his list but I think he likes it!!Laurie always expects a surprise from me. We've both been talking about Suzanne's wonderful "hang ups". I was gifted one and I bought myself one in the fall. Laurie fell in love with an all brown one but wouldn't buy it. When that one was no longer available she mentioned another one she liked. I just hoped that it wouldn't sell right away because if I had bought it then Laurie would figure I got it for her.

I got her a brown and aqua one and she liked it better than the all brown one!
She looks like she's pretty happy too don't you think?

Chris said I surprised him with it too. Don't you love to give real surprises for Christmas? Of course, they always get me back!

Did you get surprised this Christmas?
