Surprises are a tricky business, especially at Christmas time. But I just love a Christmas surprise that is not only never expected (thus fulfilling the definition of "surprise") but TOTALLY loved. This Christmas it was hard to gauge which present was the biggest, OMG Caps-Lock, Bold, happiest surprise.
It might have been our family gift of a Wii game system....
or it might have been tickets for a Broadway production of Sweeney Todd in Detroit.
Both were a wonderful surprise. Maybe the only thing that could have topped it would have been a Wii Sweeney Todd game.
From our house to yours, wishing you a year full of surprises. The redundantly never expected but TOTALLY loved (good) kind.
