The Butterfly Boys

Every year for Christmas, I buy presents for the ex and he has presents for me.

Some have tags 'From Kim', the others are meant to be for him from the boys.

Same for me. He buys the presents for me that will be from the boys.

This year, something different happened.

They boys used their allowance to pick out my present THEMSELVES!

The ex took them shopping separately.

They had no idea what the other had picked out for me.

From Alec, I received this beautiful silver butterfly ring.

From Adam, this beautiful butterfly decoration.

I don't collect butterflies. I've never really mentioned having a particular liking for them.

But without knowing what the other was getting, BOTH boys chose butterflies for me this year ... all on their own.

Guess my boys are growing up. *sniff*

And I guess I'm starting a new butterfly collection!

Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!

That's so sweet! If my kids did the shopping, I'd get lego. Lots of lego.

LOL Ginny! Lego! Ya know, if you didn't need a credit card to shop at WWE online, I'm sure they would have gotten me Wrestling Gear LOL. At LEAST a pair of Jeff Hardy armbands!

Bon, that would have been pretty for a girl's room :-)
