Merry Christmas!

Thursday, December 25, 2008

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas. Our day was really good. I absolutely love Christmas and the spirit of giving. I love to see the looks on people's faces when they open gifts that I've hand-picked for them. The kids got lots of stuff, of course. Some of the highlights were bikes for both kids, and lincoln logs, webkinz,craft items, and Wii games for Christopher. Reynna got scrapbooking items (lots of paper), webkinz, Wii games and a new coat. Everyone was very generous.

I got pink boxing gloves for the punching bag that I got Devin. He knew he was getting it as it weighed more than 100 pounds and I absolutely could not get it out of the car without his help. He also gave me lots of new work clothes along with my most favorite present, a Coach purse. He claims that it's totally impractical, which it might be but I've just been eyeing them for quite awhile now. Luckily for me, the Coach outlet store was having crazy, crazy sales and a very good deal was had. Devin got the aforementioned punching bag along with some clothes and Guitar Hero from me.

My parents and sister came over and spent the better part of the day with us. We played our new game, Ticket to Ride, ate and played Wii. My mom absolutley loves the boxing game on Wii Sports. It was fun to watch her and Hyrum go at it. Hyrum ended up taking 3 out of 5 games.

I don't know about you but I am bone tired. I've been so busy baking, wrapping, shopping and worrying about Christmas. Like I said, I love Christmas but I'm glad that it's over for the most part. Now I can fully concentrate on studying for my next exam, which is in just 1 week. YIKES.

I am very blessed and wanted to tell you all my family that I love you very much.

Aaawww great pictures and what a fun but busy day! We just entered 'Wii-ville' this Christmas and tho I am so not into games and such, the thing is quite fun! That is so funny about your Mom playing --I overheard my oldest telling Grandma on the phone that she was going to love the Wii. And my mom really will. Take care and keep in touch!
