Happy Whatever

We had a nice time at d'Mum's. Saturday p.m. was spent at Bro#1's place. In attendance were Bro, SIL, Mum, niece-in-law and her rugrat (hubby had to work), Eli and myself. We had a nice turkey dinner and opened some prezzies (Bro and his family have always done it Christmas Eve). SIL gave me a nice red vase and Bro gave me the weirdest gift: cheap pad of stationary paper (with a "cute" kitten on it) and envelopes. I have no idea what he was thinking. I mean, it's nice enough but totally out of left field. NIL gave me a pretty porcelain Lennox box with holly and berries on it. Anyway, a nice time was had by all. Oh, and the ornaments I made were a hit.

Sunday a.m. I managed to wait 'til 7:30 to get Mum & Eli up to see what Satan Santa had brought to us.

From Eli: ten dvds (yes, 10!) most of which were on my "want" list (best of the bunch: Romeo and Juliet), a beautiful short sleeved sweater, a fleece "lounging about the house" sweater, a glass bee window ornament hanging thingie, a scarf (brown chenille) to go with my new-ish jacket, pink chenille slipper-socks and two pairs of Christmas socks (they were in my stocking).

From Mum: a beehive shaped tin filled with Bit-O-Honey and a bee magnet, a new bird-feeder with extra seed (that was for both Eli and myself), toys for the wee beasties and a $30 Border's gift certificate. I used the gift certificate to buy the collector's edition of Charlotte's Web and a calendar (olde-tyme posters with cats on them, suitable for framing at a later date, link is to cached version of the site).

Lots of kewl loot, eh? We didn't bother to shower or get dressed Saturday. We had breakfast, watched Die Hard (I got Eli the boxed trilogy), had a nap, watched Die Hard 2, had dinner, watched Die Hard 3. What a rough day.

Monday Eli and I went to Border's (to spend the aforementioned gift certificate). Bro showed up about 2 p.m. and whilst Mum started lunch dinner lunner (Tex-Mex, yum!) Bro, Eli and I chatted about EverQuest. After lunner, Bro and I proceeded to wipe the floor with Mum's and Eli's arses as we won three out of three cribbage games. Although I remain the Cribbage Queen, I now have to share my crown.

I hope each of you had a Happy Whatever as well.
