Christmas Gifts – Surprises

29 Dec

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.  I know I did.  Baby J really enjoyed the day and had so much fun playing with her new toys.  D and I decided not to buy gifts for each other this year.  Well let’s face it – we say that every year and I still manage to do something special.  But the fact is we don’t really want for anything.  If we want something we go buy it or save for it and then go buy it.  We really don’t wait until a birthday or Christmas to do it.  Guess we are a bit spoiled that way.

So anyways we decided this year that we wouldn’t buy gifts and that we would  do a Disney trip instead. Yes lots of fun.  Baby J hasn’t been to Disney yet and she is at the perfect age to go and see the princesses and the castle and we will have so much fun.

So I was in charge of getting the tickets.  Yup I did that!  I got ticket to Disney Land in California!  Oh yeah I surprised her with a family vacation to California.  I am so excited.  We will be going the first week in February.  Air tickets, rental car, hotel, Disney tickets, Zoo tickets, Hollywood – I cannot wait!  I think I might be more excited than she is.  I have never been to California before – D grew up there so we are going back to her hometown.  This will be baby J’s first trip there as well.

I did a scrapbook page and wrapped it up for her as her gift.



(I scraplifted this layout – cant remember where I got it from though)

She was so surprised and excited to be going back to California too.  It was so much fun seeing her face when she opened it and baby J was all excited to give it to her to open.



I have been working on this surprise since before Thanksgiving.  Whew – so glad I don’t have to keep it a secret anymore.  🙂 Oh and there is a half marathon on her birthday that weekend that she is going to be running as well.

Did you get what you wanted for Christmas or did you get a surprise?
