That's not @ all suspicious!

I bought part of Princess's birthday present today and had it hiding in the back of the van, but it was still fairly visible so I needed to get it out. I didn't want to go to the hassle of opening the garage and risk her running downstairs to see who would dare leave without saying good-bye and giving 23 hugs and 87 kisses first. I had the great idea to send Al to climb thru the van and retrieve it.

Me: I'll keep her up here getting ready for bed, go climb into the back of the van and bring it in for me.
Al: But if I bring it up here, she might see me with it.
Me: Just put it on the couch. She's staying up here. I'll hide it in the basement after I get her to bed.

5 minutes later, as I'm reading her a story Al comes in & whispers in my ear: "I hid it under the pillows & blanket." I'm so glad he told me, otherwise, I would never have figured that out on my own.

That's 2 small blankets & 1 queen size quilt, 3 toss pillows and 2 couch cushions on the back side!
Here's a reference for the size of the present:




PS---Happy B'day to Jenn!!
PPS---Happy Square Root Day! 3/3/09 The next one won't be until 4/4/16

I don't think anyone at my house would notice... they wouldn't point it out b/c they would think they would have to clean it up. Good job, Al!
