my mom and i had a lot of fun opening gifts from eachother and it was really fun to see my moms reactions to all her gifts, especially the handmade ones (a mini frame, a scrap-o-dex, a promise to make a quilt for her bed and a blog setup and banner) and she totally spoiled me as well. my favorite gift from her has got to be the picture matedash photo printer! i was playing with it a little last night and it's so fun! you can print up to 12 little square photos on one 4 x 6 sheet! how rad is that! all i can think of is how it is going to revolutionize my scrap capabilities! hehe! and the minis that can be made like instantly? insanity!!! so psyched!
after gift opening, and a little bit of watching the cats romp around in all the giftwrap and tissue paper, we pretty much instantly had to get ready to head up to my aunts. i rocked a blaire-bow (gossip girl) and really horrible eyeliner (i hate those days when it just won't cooperate, haha) and we managed to only be like an hour late. that's how it goes in our family, haha. we had my aunts super awesome onion dip and opened presents (double score chi hair straigtener & wii) and i just about died when i opened a very squishy package that contained a grown-up size cozy blanket, like the ones they make for when babies are fresh out of the bath. i almost peed my pants when i put it on and i probs did actually drool a bit from laughing so hard, haha! it's super cozy and will totally use it all the time! it even has a tale! haha!
with our tummies full of yummy lasagna we headed home to get in jammies, open a couple more presents (my mom got me dance dance revolution and a dance pad,) hook up the wii, play with the photo printer a bit and relax. it was a really nice, relazing christmas; great gifts given, great gifts received and fun family time.
so now it's pure torture that i am stuck at work instead of home playing with all my new toys! i could be snuggled up as my giraffe alter-ego watching my so called life: the complete series on dvd and printing pictures to scrap or playing wii! eek! at least i only have half an hour left, then it's off to eb games to see what prices are like and then home i go for some serious play time!
can't wait to get scrapping for me again!
