The 12 Days of Christmas

Since Ken is such a great husband he surprised me and did the 12 days of Christmas for me this year! I am finally getting around to posting his very creative ideas. Here is what he did:

"On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me a mango in a pine tree." This is mango lotion and pine smelling soap from Bath and Body Works. Very nice!

"On the second day of Christmas the six geese a laying showed up early, so I decided to use their eggs and make you breakfast." It was a Sunday and I was at ward council and when I got home a nice omelet, bacon, fresh strawberries and orange juice were waiting for me. It was wonderful!

"On the third day of Christmas, my true love sent to me Three French Vanilla Hot Cocoas." He ordered this brand of Hot Chocolate from Utah and had it shipped. It is so much better than any other Hot Chocolate we have ever had. Yum! Yum!

When Ken got home from work, he and each of the boys took turns calling me on our home phone from his cell phone and told me how much they loved me. Then I heard a ring I didn't recognize coming from my purse. I went and looked and found a new cell phone (I was in desperate need of an update) and when I answered it, they all sang, "On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me four calling Crows."

"On the fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me, five onion rings." He also got me a gift card to Sam Moon's (a jewelry store) so that I could go and buy my own real rings and earrings.
I was able to get two necklaces, and five pairs of earrings.

"On the sixth day of Christmas the turtle doves finally showed up and they had multiplied." This candy was so good and lasted me for about a month (I did share too).

"On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me seven songs for singing (instead of swans a swimming)." He made a CD for me of some of my favorite Christmas songs from now and when I was young. He also bought the Osmond's Christmas CD. We listen to our CD's sometimes from our DVD player that is why you see a picture of the TV.


"On the eighth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me some of the famous frozen custard from the eight maids a milking." Culver's frozen custard is the best. We just discovered here a few months ago!

"On the ninth day of Christmas the nine ladies dancing were dancing all day for so long that they needed a massage." So, I got a massage from my Kenny boy who happens to know how to give really good massages.

"On the tenth day of Christmas, the Lords a leaping were leaping so hard that we now need new floors in two of our bathrooms." Ken took me to Home Depot and we picked out some new tile floors and he is installing them as I type.

"On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me eleven painters painting." He finished painting our living room (a project we started in November).

I haven't found out yet what the twelfth day of Christmas is going to bring. But with everything else I got, I am completely satisfied and very grateful for a loving and creative husband that did the 11 days of Christmas for me!

Isn't he great?

That is awesome! Dave could take a few lessons from Ken! Hmm, wouldn't that be a great Elder's Quorum activity? "Ways to spoil your wife 101!"

Wow is the word! What a creative and personalized set of gifts. So glad it was a memorable holiday. Hope the next three weeks go quickly, or slowly, depending on which way you want to look at it. :)
