Welcome Home with a bag full of goodies.

My Husband has been away for two weeks in Las Vegas for work. Nice for some. Maybe it has been because it has been smack bang in the school holidays or right after Christmas but he has been really missed.
That's not to say he wouldn't be missed as a general rule but there was something about this trip that made us all very sad and miserable that we weren't all together.
He even got a home made "Welcome Home Daddy " sign at the airport.
So what does my spunky W. do to make up for his time away.
Shower us with gifts.
And man,were they good! Maybe a little overboard for the kids but I'm happy for some over compensation to go on occasionally. There was GAP items for the girls - embarrassed to say he even got into double figures of how many items of clothing he bought for them. I should add for himself also - good shopper old Willy - especially when I got a filled bag from Victoria Secret. Weeeeheeee. Then came out the Disney bag.
You need to understand I have a highly influenced Five turning thirteen year old that happens to be a Disney -Marketing Dream. In fact when they set their demographic I am sure it just says " Violet Davey".
Anyhoo out came the High School Musical WII game with microphone ofcourse - then the Hannah Montana tshirt - mmm noice. He smugly tells me that we were lucky that he didn't buy the wig.Yep that's right you can even buy wigs in the Disney store.

The hit was the Peter Pan and Captain Hook costumes purchased so when her male friends come over they have something to dress up if they want to. Yes I know all feminists out there - offensive on a few levels but lets not take the fun out of the day of over-consumption! Including this day and my views on Christmas I am surprised you haven't seen me on Today Tonight.




You just couldn't wipe the smile of this little girls face!

I think Violet looks fab in the boy costumes. Just one question though - did he buy ME anything?

Two weeks during school holidays - you deserved every single bit that came home!!
Your daughter looks gorgeous in her Peter Pan costume and so proud of it too!
My husband is off for a week next week - away for his birthday and youngest's first day of school. Sob...
I'll be making sure he knows just how many goodies your husband bought home.

That is one exceptional shopping man you have there.

Although it really does suck having to have him away at this time of year.
