When we were younger, buying for Dustin was always difficult. One thing that compounded the problem is that his birthday is 2 weeks before Christmas, so I have to save up all of my ideas throughout the year and go crazy in December. Over the years, I have figured out my husband....a little bit, and shopping for him has become a bit easier.
Dustin, on the other hand, has always been a great gift giver. Some would even say that he amazing at gift giving. Over the 8 Christmases we have been together his gifts have included diamond earrings, a laptop, and a new truck. I know ladies, try not to be jealous. Since Kennedy was born, we decided to forgo gifts for each other at Christmas and only allow Santa to fill our stockings. However, a couple of days ago, my husband emerged from our bedroom with a wrapped box. After me insisting that we didn't buy each other Christmas gifts, he argues that it isn't. "Can't you tell by the wrapping? It isn't a Christmas gift. It is a 'because I love you gift'." Sweet, isn't he? I DO have a great husband. Okay girls, let me pause for a second to explain this wrapping job to you. His skills weren't bad. He picked a pink, red, purple and white plaid paper that I must have bought during a temporary stint of color blindness. The medium sized box was topped with a metallic blue Christmas bow. It cracked me up, but he was so proud.
I ripped open the paper to find a brand new SLR Cannon Rebel camera. Something I've been not so quietly hinting about for about 4 months. It was amazing! Since, I've been getting shots of everything in my sight and I'm loving it! Here are a few of my favorites!
Isn't she a cutie? But she looks so mean!
I must say, there are a FEW things in this world Dustin is better at than I am. Gift giving is one of them. Thanks for a great "because I love you" present, honey!
Merry Christmas everyone!
