An Off Christmas

I love to give gifts.  Really, I enjoy giving gifts more than I enjoy receiving them.  When I get a good gift for Rachel, it rarely makes it until the time when I’m supposed to surprise her with it because I am just way too excited to see her reaction to wait very long.  I love to see a person open that perfect gift that you found for them and see the excitement on their face, or to see their eyes get watery because they are so touched by the gift, or by the fact that you spent the time to care enough to get them something extra special.

That being the case, I love to get special gifts for my wife.  Unfortunately though, I didn’t do so well this year.  That’s my confession.  I got so consumed with everything else I was involved in, that i didn’t really take the time to find her some great gifts.  That kinda bummed me out this year.  There were some clothes she got for herself and made them gifts from me.  And I got her one exciting thing I guess…ticket to see James Taylor in concert in February.  But that was probably as much for me as it was for her.  We were supposed to see him a couple years ago, but then couldn’t cause I had opening night for Joseph the same night.

So all that to say, luckily I have her birthday January 11th and our anniversary January 24th to make up for it.  I’m gonna start working on it now.  So honey, feel free to drop some subtle hints if you wanna!  Here’s a little video about those of us who kinda missed the mark this year.  It made me laugh and inspired me to put up this post. 

How did the rest of you do with your gift giving this year?

    That was awesome! Thanks for the laugh. I think I was the guy with the vacuum up the wahoo.
    Actually we went pretty cheap this year…my wife bought her gift a few weeks ago when she purchased a purse. Kids had a great Christmas though.
