One thing that made this Christmas so special was knowing that all three kids went out shopping with Jeff and were encouraged to pick out something for Mom. Jeff and I both agree that it's not about what they choose, but that they feel like they were able to pick something they truly want to give. Of course the best gifts were those they made for us but it's adorable to see what they think their parents would want and the look of pride on their faces is just priceless.
My handsome -- and oh so patient -- husband even had the foresight to snap pics of their adventure. I have to say, seeing these photos and hearing the stories of how they chose the goodies was a gift in itself.
Brady chose tennis balls because well... Brady wanted some new tennis balls.
Lucy was less than cooperative posing for photos but she did choose a nice pair of fuzzy slippers.
Brady actually fell asleep in the cart. Shopping is hard work!
