Christmas Tree My 21 Year Old Son Surprised Me!

(I shared this story in the Countdown but wanted to post here for those who missed it).

I got a VERY NICE surprise when I came home from work Sunday night! When we pulled up in the driveway I saw my big Christmas tree in the window with all the lights on. I looked at my husband and he said, "don't look at me, it was all your sons idea". I said, "Are you serious"????? My 21 year old son set up the Christmas Tree to surprise me and boy was I surprised!!!!!!! It was 100% his idea and he wanted to do something nice for me.

When I came in the house I told my son how much I appreciated it. With his silly sense of humor he said, "I didn't do it! Someone broke in the house and set it up"!

My son has acted indifferent about Christmas for several years now, doesn't hate it but just indifferent. So this came as a big shock to me and brought tears to my eyes when he did this nice gesture. The night before he did this he sat down and watched The Grinch Who Stole Christmas with me.

I think he is catching the Christmas Spirit Bug from me!

I will never EVER forget this!

I don't even think my 21 year old daughter knows where I store the tree, let alone get up the energy to take it out and set it up...

She might surprise you sometime! I thought the same exact thing of my son! My whole family is still in shock. Ha ha! I called my daughter to tell her and she didn't believe me at first. Then when she finally believed me she was so happy to hear that he did that. =)

He's a good kid but this is something I never expected of him. That's why this is so special to me. =)

I know I posted a comment to you in the countdown CAH, I think that is really wonderful of your son. That really shows that he is trying to spending more time with you and that he is growing up. I think it's really wonderful. How heartfelt!
