wan-na find something?

so this is christmas

and what have you done? [breaking out lighter and swaying]

well, i've given and i've received. boy oh boy, did i receive!

i got two of the biggest things on my wish list! the hub said "we tried to get the uggs too, but they were sold out EVERYWHERE."

no biggie! i received some cash from the ILs, so i'll just scoop those up after nordie's has a chance to restock ;) i also scored some new paige premium jeans, a book by one of my favorite authors, and a stocking full of yummy snacks and treats.

and it wouldn't be christmas without the yule log on tv (i tried to explain this silly tradition to the hub, and he actually sat and gazed at it with glazed eyes for a while before switching over to tbs and "a christmas story"):

some of my gazillion cousins and i took a group pic at last night's family gathering:

and the kid had been looking for "footie pajamas" for months. i managed to find some, in flannel, no less - and they have the drop seat! just a quick rip of velcro and she can go potty without having to get nekkid. and she really loved 'em (yup, the run dmc shirt was on her list too):

here's the bean in her santa outfit before she started drooling on the fur collar and we had to put something else on her:

the hub dug his new ugg slippers and workout clothes. plus, we scooped up "the perfect pushup" as a joke, after he'd eyed the infomercial for a full five minutes last week. ha!

him: "hey, that's kind of cool. pull up the website, will ya?"
me (sitting at the mac, as usual): "bwahahahaha! they have those at sport chalet! i saw it there."

and then i tried to change the subject really fast. sport chalet ain't exactly one of my usual haunts, so if he'd been listening to me (hee hee! i couldn't even type that without bursting into laughter at how inconceivable that would be), he'd have questioned me on it. i'm not sure if he'll keep it, but it was funny to watch his reaction when he pulled the wrapping paper off.

quite a lovely christmas, indeed. hub didn't get peace on earth, but otherwise, i think everyone's wish lists were covered.

now i must get cookin' on those au gratin potatoes for dinner at the grandparents'. the giving and receiving ain't quite over, folks.

merry christmas to all, and to all a good night!
