Christmas 2008

My Christmas was really awesome:
  • Good Christmas Eve dinner at my parent's house
  • Christmas Eve services with our families
  • Quick pizza/wings hangout with Di (Dave's sis), John, Miranda and Cord.
  • Christmas morning alone with Dave, just how I like it
  • Christmas Day hosted at our place with my family
  • Gave Christmas portraits to my parents and sisters
  • KitchenAid mixer.  k-i-t-c-h-e-n  a-i-d  m-i-x-e-r
  • Christmas lunch/dinner was not planned well by Dave and I, but my family waited patiently and it ended up being worth the wait
  • Seeing Sebastian
  • Game with Dave's family
  • Christmas movies watched around and on Christmas: Home Alone, A Christmas Story, Nightmare Before Christmas, The Family Stone, and Mamma Mia (I know it's not a Christmas movie, but we watched it)
  • Day-after-Christmas homemade waffles (it's definitely shaping up to be a tradition)
For those of you who are materialistic snots, here you go:
  • What I gave: hat and scarf, red hoodie, books, magazine subscription, prints with custom typography, portraits, Mamma Mia!, White Christmas, Christmas decor, socks, underwear, My Little Pony, Berenstain Bears book, Chutes and Ladders, Candy Land
  • What I received: Cute Christmas decor, silicone baking pan, Pier One gift card, hat with big buttons, house socks, cords, sweaters, camera remote, Peace Like a River, The Tales of Beetle the Bard, KitchenAid mixer, Partini game, The Host, photos, makeup bag, lotions and sprays, Kohl's gift card
  • I have to be honest, I truly did enjoy giving more than receiving this year. I really put a lot of thought into my gifts, and loved giving things that I made myself.
