(That is an R2 ornament my mom gifted herself with. :D)
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I know I did. We all managed to sleep in till nine (which was unbelievable because we live with a six year old, but he was good and stayed in his room being quiet) and after we went through our tins (which take place of stockings at our kitchen table) we sorted out all the gifts from under the tree and got to opening!
This is the first year of my life that I did not make a wish-list this year–my mom teased me that would only get about two presents but happily I got quite a pile this year. Honestly, it was mostly candy! Chocolate oranges, Lindor dark chocolate, cotton candy, See’s candy, raspberry & blackberry candies; I got a lot of candy. I also got a new backpack, a Batman clock, a couple new books, four movie passes, several gift cards and some cash. I got some other stuff to but I can’t remember them at the moment.
My dad gave me two copies of Glenn Beck’s fictional dystopian thriller “Agenda 21”; one for me and one for Dylan. It looks interesting and I’m looking forward to reading it once we finish Sherlock Holmes and A Christmas Carol. The next time I see him I will have to give him his copy of the book.
That’s right, I forgot I got some Star Wars mugs; this one above is of Darth Vader–isn’t that goofy looking?! And the other one was a normal mug with Vader, Boba and a Stormtroopers on it. You may note that when I get Star Wars things, it usually the villains! I have a lot of Vader stuff, come to think of it. I also got a thermos cup with Han’s famous phrase “never tell me the odds” on it with a electronic bottom–you click a button and you can hear Han say four of his famous sayings! It’s pretty cool; I put my hot chocolate in it this morning.
It was a quiet day and then in the evening we drove across town to visit friends–we got home late, cooked some frozen pizza and watched X-Men 2. (Yes, we’ve seen X-Men and we also saw the prequel X-Men: First Class. ) We were up late watching that and I got to bed at 1:00 in the morning! So… Christmas Day lasted pretty long for my family!
How was your Christmas? What was your favorite gift, I’d love to hear about it!! 🙂
