Carter was just 3 years old late November and Cooper will be 4 years old in early February so there is a little bit of age difference and a big difference in keeping a secret. One morning about 3 weeks ago before I took Cooper to preschool he said, "Nana, we got your Christmas present." I said, "Oh, what did you get me?" "Can't tell you it is a secret." So, he went off to school and after picking him up from school and he was eating his lunch he said, "Nana, we don't have two birds at our house". Now, I know for a fact they have Vinnie the african grey and would not even think about getting another. So, that was easy to figure out. Since then many little slips of the tongue that I have just ignored but I told everybody just don't tell me the color or the name so that would at least be a surprise for me. Well, just yesterday Cooper said, "Peach and Vinnie talk back and forth." So, I guess there is nothing left of that secret! I love it; just part of a fun Christmas.
Now Carter has been doing much better. He has been delivering to our front door each night presents for the "12 days before Christmas". I figured it out quite quickly who it was bringing gifts but of course didn't let it be known. It has been fun to see what we get each night and I understand Carter has found the nightly secret trip to Nana's front door and leaving the gift, knocking on the door and than running fast back to the car lots of fun. Thanks Carter, Cash, Chelsea and Cody. It has been fun for both Alvin and I.
