{Twas 2 Weeks Before Christmas}

So this year for Christmas Travis decided that he wanted an X-Box 360, it took a while but he finally convinced me to get one for him. Well I strictly told him that when we bought it he had to wait for Christmas... that was the agreement. But as soon I picked it up from the store the pressure was on for me to let him open it and play. I was doing so good at not cracking even though he was having Preston come over daily telling me reasons of why Travis should be able to open it up early. Here are some of the reasons they came up with.

1. Because they want to play together online. {Ok my problem is this, so they've been playing together at Devry and Preston's, don't you think playing together in the same room is better than playing together online and talking to each other on headsets!}

And the 2nd reason was:

2. Because Travis has to go back to school in January and he won't have as much time to play since he will be busy with homework and work. {Yes, ok somewhat logical!}

So the last reason is a little bit of why I did Break, that and the fact that I don't know how many more times I could handle being told that I'm {cold as ice!} I'm not cold as ice I just wanted Travis to have something to be excited about because he is so Bah humbug!

Since I decided to give in I still wanted it to be exciting. So one day while he was at work I set up a treasure hunt. These pictures of each of the places and clues he had to find!

{P.S. yes they were all wrapped in princess paper, it's all because one day I came home from work and he had wrapped all my presents in Transformer paper and thought it was so cool, so I thought what is the exact opposite of Transformer thats right Princesses!}
