Christmas Rocked!!!

Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!!! :)

We certainly did. All were spoiled, and now, I'm exhausted. And, we have a cold. Well, at least Travis and I do. His is a runny nose, exclusively. I feel ickish, and a sore throat. Mostly okay, though.... but I had a lame headache most of the day yesterday. I swear I feel like I have a cold every other week. Sigh.

The good part was, it sucked weatehr-wise here, so yesterday afternoon, Travis and I took a nice long nap together. That was really nice.

Then, Jeff came home an we went to town on his room, and the hall closet.

We bought Travis a twin bed, and it's being delivered today. Also, SBC is coming out to check on why the hell our DSL sucks so much ass. So, the "we'll be there between 12:00 and 4:00" window means we need to be home. Plus, it's been raining all morning. Better to be home, anyway.

I got up early - thanks to Travis. He was demanding "Laaa Laaa! Laa Laa!!" (water) at the top of his lungs before 7:00 am.


Then I got up and did my new Windso Pilates ball workout DVD. I asked for a Windsor DVD, and it was gifted by my Brother-in-law. I laughed when he told me he had such a hard time finding it. Picture a tall, thin 24-year-old guy trying to locate this for my Christams gift. LOL! It was balanced out nicely by his other gift: Barefoot Contessa at Home cookbook. So, make these yummy recipes, and get your ass into shape!!

My Christmas haul list: Windsor DVD, Socks, Gift cards (Sephora, Borders, Macy's, Cost Plus World Market), Cookbooks (Barefoot Contessa, and the Sonoma Diet Cookbook). I also got the Sonoma Diet book and How to be a Domestic Goddess by Nigella Lawson with my Borders card.
Fluffy-ass pink bathrobe, (grandma-in-law) UC Santa Cruz banana slug slippers from my SIL.
Pyrex bowls & white wine glasses(MIL) , new Pyrex baking set + Wilton cooling rack, (Jeff), clothes - well actually, Jeff took Travis to the toy store so I could buy stuff including sexy NON-NURSING bras!!

Also, an awesome Gift card for the Culinary Institute of America's Wine Spectator Restaurant in Napa Valley from my MIL. We're going to use it when Travis is night-weaned, and do an overnight wine-tasting, dinner, cooking demonstrations, etc. YAY!!!!

Jeff: Da Ali G Show on DVD, A Nirvana Box-set, a leather Jacket, a black bathrobe, Gift cards (BevMo, Chili's, Starbucks), a Leatherman tool, wireless headphones for watching TV, and we got an iHome clock radio for our iPods. I got him "That's My Bush" on DVD, Lego Starwars for PS2 (for us both from Travis) and a wallet.

Travis, well, he got EVERYTHING!!! A million-billion toys, tons of puzzles, The Thomas Water Tower figure 8 with trains for his train table, books, clothes, a cool Melissa & Doug wooden shape sorter, Play-Doh EZ2Do Set, Elmo's World DVDs, Elmo Aqua Doodle, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Cd, Mickey Counting Car, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse hooded towel, Little Einsteins and Mickey sheet sets, a plush "Rocket" from Little Einsteins, and basically a million other things that he loves.

So, yeah. We are incredibly lucky to have family who obviously like us just a little, tiny, bit! ;)
