We had a wonderful Christmas. On Christmas eve, we closed so we didnt get off work until 8pm. Well, I got off at 8, Jess got off at 7. It was a Saturday night so I had extra stuff to do to close out for the night, as well as for the week. But I was done on time. 🙂
Jess rushed home to finish packing and walk the furbabies. She loaded the car and got everything ready so that when I got home, we could get on the road. I have the best wifey 🙂
We got to my mom’s around 10pm and of course we opened all of our gifts. Why you ask? Because I have always opened presents on Christmas eve.. not all of them, but most of them. Seriously, I always had Christmas as soon as I woke up whether it was 4am or 9am…. lets be honest, it was rarely 9am 😉 Santa must have woken me every year on his way out!! Ha Ha.
Well, Santa mom did not disappoint!!
Oh yea… I got a Kindle Fire baby!
I also got these… ok let me explain…
1. Anyone remember the Pizza Hut glasses with the Flintsones Kids on them from 1980s?? Well, me either. I think maybe my Aunt Kathy had some, but thats the extent of any kind of memory. One day, the family (me, mom, Aunt Kathy, and Jess) were hitting up the antique stores they love, oh so much, we I spotted a Freddy glass for $2. It was too cute to pass up… plus it was 50% off. SCORE. Fast foward a year, and I found the Barney glass at antique store but it was $18. Uh no thank you! I was crushed. I wanted it sooo bad. Well, Mom found a good deal on one… so I got it for Christmas. 🙂
2. OK…. I may have had a bit of an obsession with Blue’s Clues. Ya know, the toddler show on Nick… Well, maybe not the show so much… but the little dog is just so dang cute! One year, Mom found a plush Blue’s Clues blanket and pillow for $40. I still have it… and it traveled to New York with me on a high school chorus trip. No Shame! Anyways… I have had the plate/bowl set for years!!! And last time mom was down to see us we noticed it had a crack in it. So sad. I decided not to use it anymore… and actually threw it away about a week ago. Guess what else mom found for a good deal??? Yep. A brand new Blue’s Clues plate. 🙂 Awesome.
Along with all our antique store finds, Mom found a gumball machine a while back. Jess loves it! She eats so much gum every time we visit. So mom found her one too. She also got my niece and uncle one too! It was the Year of the Gumball! Ha Ha.
She also got Jess some new Paula Deen dishes, not the cook set she got that last year, but some baking dishes. And some new PD utencils. Mom gave us an awesome canvas picture that she actually made! Lots of other cool stuff.
The babies had Christmas when we got back to our apartment on Monday. They were excited… although Kiwi appears a bit stuck up in the pics but really she found a chewy bone on the floor!
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!!
