All I want for Christmas is...

I was PUNKED. I was DUPED. I was TRICKED on Christmas! Whichever way you want to say it, here's my silly story:

We picked Secret Santa names on Oct. 27th, Tarissa's birthday.

I only had ONE thing on my list this year -- My girlfriend Cyndy recommended the game Catch Phrase to me last month. When Cyndy recommends something to me, I take note!

On November 14th, I sent an email to everyone saying:

If anyone has my name, I would love to have this for Christmas!!!
Catch Phrase! game
+ the 2 AAA batteries that aren't included! LOL

On Dec. 11th, my cousin Christi emails me:
I need a wish list for your secret santa please.

I responded,
I sent it already! Catch Phrase!

We exchanged our Secret Santa gifts at Uncle Frankie's house on Christmas Day. I had a few presents from "Santa" by my feet. I first opened wine glasses + a bottle of Zinfandel.  Nice BUT this wasn't Catch Phrase. I was acting like I was 6 years old again! Next present, a practical 4 x 6 picture frame. "Santa" knows I'm a shutterbug, but still no Catch Phrase!

I unwrapped the final gift from my Secret Santa.

Pet Petter???
 This is NOT what I wanted!!! I'm disappointed. I had a sad face on. WHAT IS THIS???
Our kittens don't have fleas! I said out loud!

I sat for a couple of minutes in disappointment.
Unbeknownst to me, my brother David shot this picture of our cousin Robbie, as I was opening my gifts. (I learned later that he was my Secret Santa and master duper!)

I opened that box and was truly surprised that my Catch Phrase game was inside. ♥

Batteries not included but that's ok! :-)
