The Christmas joke -

started with husband who buys me underwear every Christmas.

I love it. Though he gets it from a well known store with a ladies name in the title there is nothing outlandish about the items that I get. Patterned sometimes, pretty always and things that I would not buy myself.

Every year, for many years now, there has been a present of them in my stocking. I carefully take them out, open them up and then yell "Look what I got." And the boys ALWAYS look. And their faces - a mixture of -- I can't believe that I saw my mother's underwear- to- I think I'm blinded for life. (Again I say - the underwear is nothing outlandish.) This year S1 looked again, S2 did not but laughed at his brother and husband and I just laughed -well because.

What a hoot...that is such a cute tradition. I'm guessing your boys will do the same for their wives when they get married!!
