My husband and I are going to decorate our Christmas tree tonight and put up lights around our home. My husband always puts the lights up first so they can be seen immediately after dark. While he is placing them on the roof, I stay inside and bake cookies for the movie we watch that night. Every year after the tree is finished, we watch a holiday movie on our Cable TV DVR. This year we will watch A Christmas Story! What I do not know about tonight, is what my husband has planned? I over heard him talking among a group of friends about something he is doing for me tonight. The problem is, is that I have no idea what it is going to be! I hope it is not some foolish prank and that it is something sweet and romantic. My husband is a jokester, so I can never take him seriously when it comes to surprises. Last Christmas he hid a rat in the box of decorations and it scared me horribly. So clearly, I hope that decorating this year will be less intense than the last. I swear that man will be on the porch if another gruesome prank like that is pulled.
