When I asked AJ what he wanted for Christmas he just said “anything from Sportys” which happens to be an online store that sells everything pilot. So I trudged on over to Sportys.com and found AJ an awesome Pilot bag and iPad Flight desk. He was both surprised and pleased by his gifts though I think he was secretly hoping for the flight simulator throttle quadrant. yeeeah. That’s on my list for next year now.
AJ surprised me with a beautiful set of diamond studs. They’re so cute and delicate, I’ve been wearing them every day since. I have a cubic pair that I wear religiously and he thought I’d appreciate some 14k ones. I was also privy to receive the most awesomely spectacular Kindle Fire. I was so excited to get this gift. I’m still waiting on a cover but am already loving this electronic baby.
Yesterday I was surprised to receive my Secret Santa gift all the way from Deutschland. Though I laughed when I saw where it came from because that’s where I sent my Secret Santa gift to so secret’s out! Thanks Alyx! She gave me a beautiful floral print scarf and two delicious chocolate bars.
Cutie Gucci received a fun new stuffed animal friend for Christmas. It has a squeaker in its stomach as well as one in each foot so we wrapped it up and squeaked it so Gucci would know there was something in it for him. I was able to get it on camera and laughed so hard just watching him try so vigorously to get it open.
I don’t think there is anything more dreadful than bath time for the Gooch. When he was just a little puppy he would literally climb into the shower with whoever was in there because he couldn’t bear being too far away from someone. Now whenever we’re downstairs and he even thinks we’re gonna shower he sits at the top of the stairs and watches us from under the railing. Then if he suspects we’re coming up to get him he takes off running. Silly boy. It’s interesting how he can go from climbing in himself to running and hiding. It’s worth the struggle though. Having a silky smooth Gucci who smells so wonderfully clean is worth all the effort.
