My Christmas Gift

Each year my sweet husband and I have gone through the song and dance of asking "what do you want for Christmas?". Only to have one another respond with one of the following: I don't know, I'll be happy with whatever, or just surprise me!

All truth be told these statements just aren't true! While I have used the various kitchen gadgets he's bought over the years; they weren't ever just right. I know, I'm awful.

 Hang in there it gets better... Nearly every article of clothing or pair of shoes has been returned for the correct size, a better color, or something different all together. Seriously... Just say it, awful! 
Okay, okay I know... I need to work on my ability to be more thankful and less picky. It's a serious character flaw! I am working on it... I promise!

With that said, this year I decided maybe I would just tell him or hey why not go a step further and just order my hearts desire. I can still tell he's determined to give me a surprise and I love him for it. 

"So, what's my hearts desire this year?" you ask... Some new riding boots - brown because I don't have any and black because mine are showing signs of serious love. I ordered these during black friday and used a coupon code... allowing me to get an awesome deal on these!

 Plus a new to me bible... Not because I don't have one or even need a new one... But because I can't wait to dive in and read the Geneva Bible. Not sure what it is? Check it out... watch this video by Kirk Cameron that tells about it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkfUM-Ir58M or  see it here: http://christianreader.com/1599-geneva-bible-black-bonded-leather-edition-cd-rom/.

What about you... Do you tell all, leave one another hanging, or completely surprise each other? 
What's on your Christmas list? 
I'd love to know.
