Merry Christmas Dingleberries,
Let me start by saying I hope each and everyone of you had a wondermus Christmas and any other holiday you may have celebrated this weekend.
We managed to finish the shopping on Friday. Thank Gawd! It wasn't quite as painful as I'd thought it was going to be, we also picked up some tasty Arbys on the way home. Nothing like a good waste of money and some food that may just be bad for you. What fast food isn't bad for you, right?
I didn't get any where near my computer on Christmas Eve. So sorrys. I forgot my camera at Mr Monkey Butts Mom's house. Oops, plus she now holding it hostage until Mr. Monkey Butt returns the accidentally placed perfume in the trunk of the car. She looked pretty happy to receive that perfume I told Mr Monkey Butt.
We had a wondermus Christmas Eve anyways. Pokey received her most anticipated gift from Grandma and Grandpa. Pokey got her Wii. It's the only thing she really wanted this year.
Us as well as Monkey Butts Mom and Dad got her the games she wanted and everything else she didn't remember wanting. It was really awesome this year.
Funds were limited but it all came together nicely. Everyone seemed happy today.
I think my happiness came from seeing Pokey smile as well as playing Just Dance 3 with her as well as Wipe Out. (for the record, I SUCK at Just Dance 3 and well I'm not too bad at Wipe Out) Do you think I'd be able to try out for Wipe Out based on my ability to rawk some Wipe Out on the Wii? lolz, I'm kidding!
Times were awesome. Christmas was a busy one, nothing new there! We played some Mario and I baked a cake for the Punch Bowl cake. Got up to early and spent time with the family before heading out into the world on Christmas Day.
We had no white Christmas this year (thank Gawd) but it did rain most of the morning! Which sucked pretty much. Gots on the way to Moms and forgot her gifts, raced back and forth and finally made it. Food was awesome and had a blast.
The surprise came later. Our thing usually goes like this, we draw names for the kids and adults on Thanksgiving and then we buy gifts for the people we've drawn. This year the adults didn't draw names, we were just buying gifts for the kids.
The adults all threw the money they would have spent on gifts for each other into a card and Mom and Dad received the money as their Christmas present from all of us. ::tears of joy:: As my readers know, my parents are cursed with an insane amount of medical bills for my Mom. Her insurance company didn't cover the entire surgery for her aneurysm. Which sucked! Plus she is fighting this cancer now and running back and forth to the doctor for treatments and check ups. We are so lucky to have a family as awesome as ours. We really can function as a whole sometimes and it just melts my heart that everyone was so willing to help them out in their time of need.
Again, Dingleberries, I hope you had a wondermus Christmas. Ours was, as you can tell. I can only hope we have many many more awesome Christmas' to come.
Goodnight, I've got tomorrow off and I want to sleep in, if Max will let me.
