Happy Day After Christmas!
Now Playing: Spiderman 3 (DVD on Television)
I hope you and yours had a wonderful day yesterday! I wish I could say our day was quiet, controlled, and short! No I don't wish that! I wouldn't have had it any other way! Noisy - movie playing, kids playing, and all of us talking. Chaotic - not so much, but at certain times there were boxes, paper, bags and parts of toys scattered hither & yon. Short - no way! Time actually went by pretty fast and some of us didn't eat our 2nd Christmas dinner until way late!
First Grader said Santa brought him everything he always wanted - which was actually a good thing since every time I asked him what he wanted Santa to bring, he'd respond "I'm not telling YOU!" Clothes fit him and he stayed busy playing with every Spiderman toy, Star Wars toy, Transformer Toy and Hot Wheels car that Santa brought. His Auntie & Uncle and cousins gave him a Spiderman 3 Monster Truck - which the dog just hates! He's having a grand time with that truck. And the stories he makes up about what Spiderman can do and what the "bad" guys are doing, are so imaginative!
Senior Daughter actually liked the clothes I bought for her! Guess it just took me awhile to figure out her "style". She spent lots of time reading the Ripley's book she got for Christmas. Loved the DVD's she received and we watched both Addams family movies last night. I hadn't really seen them before - boy, the movies are a little more "dark" than the TV show was!
The Dog loved her gifts - pig ears and a pig hoof! She chewed & chewed on that hoof! Took it outside but was constantly on guard in case something or someone else tried to take it! She wasn't too thrilled with all the people (baby especially) or toys that moved or made lots of noise. She did, however, enjoy her Christmas dinner.
Hubby played his Sudoko game most of the day. I think his favorite gift came from our niece. She sent wonderful literature and great framed picture of the castle that is purported to be an ancestral home in my husband's lineage (in England). I couldn't tell her thank you enough for that gift. She sent me a beautiful ceramic refrigerator magnet from her trip to Germany recently. I'm so afraid it will break that I won't put it on the fridge. Hubby also liked the DVD's, gift cards, and tools he received.
Photographer Daughter (GO TO HER WEBSITE: http://www.yourlongtermmemories.com) received a fantastic gift from her husband - a Digital SLR camera. She'll have so much enjoyment out of learning all the things it can do! I thought she took great pictures before - I can't wait to see the photos she takes with this camera! That was my wish for her - to have a professional camera!
Son-in-law received several gifts he can use and enjoy. Have I told you how blessed we are to have such a wonderful, caring, and hard-working Son-in-law? I'm so thankful that he is part of our family (course, I'm sure there are times he wonders about us all!)
Florida Daughter sounded like she had a great Christmas! Her fiance' gifted her with a new, big jewelry box that she raved about. I can't wait to hear how her Christmas dinner turned out! When I talked to her, she had pies cooking, a turkey in the oven of her family down the street and doing a ham in her oven!
Florida Son had to work and called late in the afternoon. I know he wished he was with family and we sure wish he'd been with us, but to know that he is healthy and happy and taking care of business, is comforting.
Extended family chimed in through the day - either with us calling them or they called us. All in all it was a Great Day!
How was your's?
