Joel and I started some of our own new traditions this morning, and carried on some old ones. We both took turns reading the bible and praying before we exchanged gifts. Joel whipped up my favorite breakfast, french toast, maple syrup bacon and homemade skillet potatoes. And we've been watching the classic, Ben-Hur all morning by the fire.
This year we set a limit on spending. I got him two new pairs of shoes, his old ones were falling apart and he continued to wear them with no complaints, so I felt he was long overdue for an up grade. I also got him a golf cooler with a special surprise inside... a voucher for 7 rounds of golf. I think he liked this one the best. He had hinted more than once this was what he really wanted...
Joel had the giving spirit a little early this year. He gave me a new pair of UGGs and a long gray sweater dress a couple weeks before Christmas. Today, I opened three more thoughtful gifts.
He gave me a rose gold angel wing pendant necklace to signify our little angel on the way. Which I love!
A Michael Kors watch! I love the rose gold. He has such good taste.
And one of my favorite books that I can't wait to read to our baby. So sweet! I sure am one lucky girl!
