Mad Dog and I had a date night planned so we could Christmas shop for the boys. While at Super Target, Mad Dog lobbied for a miniature version of our Christmas tree for the boys’ room.
Full Speed and T.Puzzle were fast asleep when we returned home. Mad Dog silently placed the small tree in their room. We tiptoed out and anxiously anticipated a big reaction once the tree was discovered in the morning.
They boys were dazzled.
There was much animated discussion on how the tree came to be in their room. The idea that made the most sense were elves of course.
Later that morning T.Puzzle tried to explain to his teacher about the mysterious tree.
“Who do you think put it there?” she asked.
“I think it was robbers,” he suggested his eyes wide with certainty.
I love a good thief. Not only did this ‘thief’ not steal a single item from our home, he or she left it beautifully decorated.
I guess crime does pay.
