Shopping with my girls
Strangely enough, this shopping trip was for the girls to pick out gifts for themselves. Before you think I'm a lazy and thoughtless Christmas shopper, let me explain. Because clothes were what they were wishing for and because they have to try them on for fit (and don't necessarily trust me to pick out what they like...despite the fact that I think I'm pretty on target for fashion and style)...they insisted on coming with me. They won't have many surprises under the Christmas tree...nah, this year it's all about anticipation. I can't even tell you how many times I've told Rebekah that she may NOT wear the Toms (shoes) that we bought for her. She has to wait until CHRISTMAS! So excitement is still high because even if they helped pick out the great majority of their gifts, on Christmas they get to actually take ownership of them.
(Shhhh...it wasn't on my shopping list.)
