Christmas 2008 Recap

Hey, looks like I actually have a few minutes to type something into my much-neglected blog. How ’bout that? Well I’ve been busy with work, a business trip to Hawaii and general family/holiday stuff. Last weekend I don’t think I even turned on my computer! That’s really wierd for me.

Our holiday was great – here’s a rundown of what we did:

  • Watched both White Christmas and It’s a Wonderful Life for the first time ever.
  • Had a cookie exchange which was fun and fattening – the best kind!
  • Spent Christmas Eve at Jim & Kathy’s with other close friends as well. Enjoyed a multitude of “pointsettia” cocktails with the girls.
  • Spent Christmas Day at Kevin & Kathy’s with even more friends (and some of the same from the evening prior).
  • Exchanged presents – The “big” present was a pair of diamond stud earrings that Terry couldn’t wait to give me, and I haven’t taken off yet. I’m also enjoying a fuzzy robe from Eric and some awesome iPod speakers from Justin. I gave Terry an iPod Nano which he loves. Eric is enjoying his dumbbell set and PacSun gift card and Justin loves his new Wii games. We also got Jus an interface and software so he can compose music on the computer – we just haven’t set it all up yet.

Temps here are actually colder than our hometown! It’s only 46 and Fairport is at 55! At least the rain finally stopped – it’s been doing that on and off for almost 2 weeks now, and in case you didn’t hear on the news North Phoenix even got snow! I changed out our sheets last night and we’re on the cozy winter flannel ones now – they  made us not want to get out of bed this morning.

Today I’m looking forward to a mostly lazy day. We are going to pick up Terry’s new glasses at Wal-Mart later and then enjoy a nice quiet dinner at home. I’m thinking soup or chili or something warm and comforting.

Here’s some links to my latest photos:

PS – no we did not get a new dog (yet). The pooches you see in the photos are friends’ dogs that naturally gravitate to Justin. He has a way with the canines!

    I’m glad you all were able to spend the holidays with friends. We used to do that when we couldn’t be home with family. Your friends become your family away from family and those memories are just as important as the real family ones.
    Love Ya All, Mom
