Keep the receipt…just in case.

After my son Noah shoveled my driveway and did a number of other chores at my house yesterday he consulted with his siblings about the four of them going in on one big Christmas present for me.  They planned to head out first thing this morning to scour the Black Friday sales for the best price for my gift.  As Noah pointed out, Black Friday is the day to get 50% off and since this gift was pricey they were going to really need to be savvy shoppers.

Makes you wonder what the gift is, doesn’t it?  Well, no need to make you wait until Christmas to find out…Noah told me what they were going to get for me and I see no problem sharing it with you.  My Christmas gift from the children – a new husband.  Not a mere replacement for the former models, but a new, improved, top-of-the-line model.

What a thoughtful gift right?  No doubt the idea was generated from Noah’s recognition that there will always be more man chores to do around here that I will need help with and an a-ha moment that he will likely be the person asked to do them.  He is a fairly bright kid – in an evil genius kind of way – amazing how he got all his siblings to buy into his gift idea.

Not sure how the shopping mission went today, but I am very excited to see what ends up under the tree on Christmas morning.  I do hope they keep the receipt though – just in case. ;-)

    Hopefully they didn’t go to the local thrift stores looking for a “second hand” deal thinking one person’s trash may be another person’s treasure(at least that’s what Sue tells me)! The guy that does the Menard’s commercials must be pretty good at “man-chores” and I imagine he’s single! I hope your children can come up with some better ideas than I have, though, because I’m drawing blanks!
