1.) I'm thinking it's a sign that the Wildman is growing up (Wildman is my baby brother), considering his Christmas present from me came from Crate and Barrel. I mean really, did anyone EVER think it would be appropriate for Todd to get gifts (that he wants!) from a place like that ;-)
2.) Moms with boys go absolutely nuts on girls for Christmas. After all the years of hot wheels and dinosaurs and action figures, it can finally be all about ribbons and bows and pink and princesses!
3.) The drive to family is ALWAYS worth it...even if it means missing out on a lingerie christmas party (yes...co-ed) ;-)
4.) No I don't feel guilty planning a bike ride for Christmas morning.... ahem.
