Some Christmas Stuff (Pictures)

I’m at home, and we have dialup now. Still no broadband. I tried to connect to the neighbor’s internet with no luck as well. I’m going to go out to the site and see if there are any outage notifications. If not, I’ll call them tomorrow and have them send signals to my box and reboot it from there.

Dial-up is definitely unstable. It just kicks me off at random all the time. Frustrating, indeed.

So, here’s my haul, so far:

(from work)
– Lancome Pleasures perfume
– Candle from White Barn Candle Co.
– Mary Kay stuff
– $20 card to Barnes and Noble

(from friends)
– total of $65 to Best Buy
– Legolas magnet
– bubble bath
– rose scented candle
– cherry flavored chapstick
– $20 to McDonalds

(from chris & aidan)
– The OC Season 1 DVD
– Popular Season 1 DVD
– Harry Potter and the POA DVD
– Harry Potter Quidditch Playstation 2 game
– air compressor
– vacuum with air compressor for my car
– car emergency kit
– scrapbooking kit
– huge pad of scrapbooking paper
– 2 journals
– $25 to Gap
– Disney Trivial Pursuit
– Mickey Mouse Club stuffed Mickey Mouse
– nightgown

(stocking stuffers – from chris)
– lots of board game key chains
– a huge Hershey’s kiss
– astronaut ice cream
– 20Q game
– Bop It keychain
– mini etch-a-sketch

(stocking stuffers – from family)
– lots of stickers
– $10 to Best Buy

(from family)
– $20 to Kohl’s
– $100 to Best Buy
– DDR Max Playstation 2 game
– Mambo gift set
– fire extinguisher

And there is still more to come!!!!

Here is my favorite gift of all, I think:

Christmas is fun. And yes, I know, my hair is not cute at all in that picture. And I look fat. Holy crap, maybe I should take it down.

Alrighty then. Chris has fallen asleep and Aidan has the run of the house and a bad attitude. Later gators!

Quick Update


…from my in-law’s house! I’ve been M.I.A. for a few days now. No internet or phone at home; I’m not expecting any until Wednesday or so. We got hit with the snowstorm to end all storms; ice is everywhere. It’s beautiful!! But it’s a pain. Our power keeps going on and off and on and off because the trees are so laden with ice that they keep falling over and breaking the power lines!

Last night was most interesting. The power went out again at 4:30pm, and stayed off til almost midnight. We slept then we played and opened some stocking stuffers by candlelight and cooked cocoa and chicken soup with sternos. I took pictures. :) We didn’t get up til 9 or so, and then we didn’t even start to open gifts til 10. Who does chores and showers before opening gifts? The Davis Family, apparently. Chris had to go and wake Aidan up.

I got tons of stuff, and now my Best Buy gift card total is over $300. I’m not done yet!! I’ll post a picture once things are back to “normal” at home. Aidan is sooo cute, he got so many things. It took him forever to open his gifts. And he hasn’t gotten his stuff from the grandparents and aunts and uncles yet.

Despite the troubles, I’m having a yummy Christmas. I miss my friends so much, though. And I haven’t seen Mommy yet–we have to wait til next week thanks to the weather and road conditions. I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday!
