It has been brought to my attention that my last post may have been a tad on the negative side. I'm not a negative person (I don't think); I was simply trying to be honest. I'm better now. Going Christmas shopping does wonders to lift the spirits. Especially when it's sneaky. What other time of the year are you totally justified in lying? Honestly? (ha ha! No pun intended).

See, I take an Institute Class. (For any non-LDS friends reading, that means that I take a Scripture Study College Course) every Thursday night. It's my night off. And I love it.

At the community college where it's offered, classes ended for the semester last Thursday, but I didn't tell anyone in my family. So yesterday, when I was busy getting dinner ready, and The Hubby came in and said, "You better hurry and eat or you're going to be late for your class," A light went off over my head. In my mind I thought, "Oh, I forgot to tell you that my class is over for the semester." But the words that came out of my mouth were, "oh yeah, I'm always rushing to get out the door on time. Thanks."

I ate quickly.

I even took my scriptures with me.

But I went to the mall and did some Christmas shopping--making spirits bright. Pretty sure I was laughing all the way, too. See, I am in the Christmas spirit.

I made sure to come home at the right time, too, and no one was the wiser here.

Since The Hubby doesn't read my blog, if he finds out it will be because one of you told him.

So don't be a snitch. Santa's watching. He's making his list and checking it twice. Deck your halls, Jingle you bells. Jump in bed, cover up your head. Settle your brains for a long winter's nap. Do whatever, just don't be a snitch.

Hahahahaha! I love it! You are so sneaky! I wouldn't have thought of it so quick. But now, when I am able, I am going to sign up for an Institute class and hope that Mike reminds me to go after it is over.

P.S. I didn't think your last post was negative at all. There is nothing wrong with being a little honest sometimes and honesty isn't always pretty, right?

I didn't think it was negative. Just honest. I like honest. Does that make me negative? Haha!

I got kind of giddy thinking about how clever and sneaky you were. Hee hee!

Way to think quick. I probably would have slipped and said something. Yes, sneaky is fun. :)
Merry Christmas!

Daniel and I also have a hard time with Christmas. We have told the kids the truth about Easter and that there is no Easter Bunny. We wanted the kids to foce more on Jesus and not on an Easter Bunny. But they still belive in the tooth fairy and Santa. Every year I think why do I do this to my kids and talk about Santa.
Rubio and Isabel do ask me I Santa is real and I ask them what do you think?

So, how long to you think you can convince Kerry that you're going to Institute every week? Because I'd be milking that for all that it was worth.
