While I love Christmas and everything it stands for...its just not quite the same without my husband. I had a few gifts to open this morning. My mother-in-law sent me a few, my mom and dad sent us our gifts and of course Justin had some here for me. I can't wait for him to be home so we can do "Christmas" again. I know it hurts him to not be here with Landon, playing with all of his gifts and watching cheesy Christmas movies with us. Every year since Justin and I have been together we have gotten each other an ornament and a pair of pajamas for is what I got!

He e-mailed my mom to tell her which one to buy me since they weren't out in stores when he left and he wanted to make sure I got the right one. So he sent her a picture of it and here is what the e-mail said.

"This is the one I want to get Kim because she always eats cocoa and toast with buddy while I'm gone."

cocoa and toast is an old family tradition, my dad ate it when he was little and me and my sisters did the same. Justin claims its not a meal....but a snack or breakfast, I think its a great dinner. So while Justin is home I'm forbidden to make it for dinner...but when hes gone its a free for all! And funny enough we ate it for dinner last night!

Then he got me really cute light blue penguin pj's. I love them!

I hope he like what I got him.

cocoa and toast IS to a meal!! i grew up eating that on really cold blistery days. not so much a tradition as it was "comfort food" in our house. =)

p.s. nate called me. he was stuck fixing the washer.
