SOOC Saturday - Daddy's Gift

What a difference from LAST weekend.... it's freezing out there!!!!

Last weekend spoiled us with the highs in the 60's so we busted our Daddy's Christmas gift.... a fire pit (something he'd been looking to purchase for over a year)...


Oh, I had done soooo well hiding it from him. My mom purchased it and kept the receipt and I gave her cash for it, in fact, I asked him for the cash to pay her for it... LOL!!!! SO he knew how much it was...

And then we kept it at their house for 2 or 3 weeks.... then moved to under Chris' bed... yes, the kids knew WHERE it was and FOR WHOM it was...

But I was the one who gave him too many clues and he guessed it... days before Christmas;) He challenged me with whether or not he'd like it.... LOL!!! I fell for it;)



I'm counting on lots of fun memories;)

I"m joining in a New Meme from Marvelous Mommy...

we have a firepit and it is so fun to use it as a family! how fun that you were able to hide it from him and then actually use it in the winter! :)
