Christmas Recap

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! The boys had magic reindeer food to sprinkle outside on Christmas Eve.

They got to open big trucks from Daddy.
I couldn't get the cats their regular scratch post. (Usually just the cardboard catnip ones.) I got them this one that has a ball they can spin around, too. Simba seems to enjoy it, but the other two weren't overly impressed. Simba keeps getting the ball out somehow, then chases that all over the living room, usually in the middle of the night.

Pre-opened loot.

I swear the Oldest One isn't googly-eyed like he looks in this picture, and no he doesn't have eyeliner on! I hate posting pictures that I used red-eye correction on -- they look strange once transferred to my blog. They don't do that in Flickr. Irritating trucks from my brother -- they blare loud dance-type music. I must remember to thank him later...

The Oldest One got the rest of the Spongebob Lego he needed for his set. (The Chum Bucket and Mrs. Puff's Boating School.) The Littlest One got the rest of the Thomas the Tank Engine Lego he needed to complete his set. (Salty, Gordon's Express, and Spencer with Sir Topham Hatt.) Well, actually I see there's two new Spongebob set -- The Bikini Bottom Express and Rocket Ride. His birthday is January 7, and the Littlest One's is the 14th...

This little one will have lots of fun next year! (The nephew.)

The kids got lots of toys, lots of clothes from Nanny and Grampy, and they each got a 20" tv for their bedrooms. I will be ordering my yarn swift probably next week. I got a new cordless phone, an exercise ball, a Flameless Candle (from the boys), and a new hand-held mixer. My parents gave me money to buy a new winter coat and boots. Plus I got my standard bag with socks, underwear, shampoos and conditioners. And my brother gave me a Yankee Candle, my favorites!

I started a pair of socks for my Dad with Austermann Step in color 13. It was in my stash. His birthday is Sunday, so I'm hoping to have them finished in time. They're only vanilla socks. Fingers crossed!

We didn't have a White Christmas. It was almost +10C on Christmas Eve Day, and it rained. All we have left is piles of snow from the plows and such. We have a winter storm watch for tomorrow, snow changing to freezing rain then rain. Nice!

Off to watch the Simpsons movie that hubby got for Christmas. We got the new Harry Potter movie, too.

Happy knitting!

Isn't it just the way the noisiest toys are gifted by people who don't have to hear the kids playing with them .Happened often when my boys were little. Hope the weather isn't as bad as predicted . Wishing you and yours a happy 2008 . Happy knitting to you too !

Hehee! You got the same movies I did!

I love sibling gifts to the best friend bought an electronic drum set for her brother's kids, and when I asked her if it had a headphone jack for keep-the-parents-sane mode, she said, "I don't know, but I'm going to check and jam something in it if it does." I'm glad I'm an only child!! :-D
