Matter of fact, as soon as my hubby got home from work last night, I went out to get some Christmas shopping done. My kiddos are old enough that it's tough to sneak things, under coats, into the cart anymore. So, with not having any family close by or a cheap babysitter lined up, that leaves one of us home with them. I've got to admit that while it's much more fun to shop together, my hubby doesn't usually have much input anyway ;). Anyway, now, I feel like I can sleep much better at night, knowing that the bulk of the shopping is complete. Sigh of relief. Oh! And just before I left, since my hubby doesn't get to be in charge of dinner very often, and when he is, he's not always good about serving things from all the food groups, I gave him a lecture about making sure that what he fixed was healthy. Well, he wanted to prove to me that he whipped up a healthy and delicious dinner, so he took a picture. LOL! Didn't he do well?
