I thought I'd make this a little bit early for those who open their presents, or some presents, on Christmas Eve. I myself have 3 relatives over (Aunt, Uncle & Grandpa) and we already exchanged gifts with them. So when you open your presents, give us a list of what you received!
Okay, so from my Aunt and Uncle for Christmas (Sometimes they're not that great with gifts, but it's the thought that counts!) I got:
-Avon 'Hollywood' mirror (It lights up in a circle around the mirror!)
-Fuzzy socks (rofl)
-Candy cane pen
-Avon lip balm
-Visa $25 gift card
-Claire's gift card, not sure how much (I plan to give it as a gift to someone who actually shops at Claire's...)
-Barnes & Noble $25 gift card (So I can work on buying the Twilight series! Yay!!)
-Pomegranate body scrub & bath salts (Yum)
-Mrs.Fields caramel chocolates
We only get to see them once a year during Christmastime, and their kids are in their 20's, so they like to go all out when we get together. For my birthday (Which is January 19th, mark your calendars ), they got me Vera Wang Princess perfume () and a matching sapphire necklace and earrings, which I thought were really pretty!
My grandpa lives about 10 minutes away from us, and every time we see him he gives me and my sister (She's 20 and normally away at UCF) $20 while my mom isn't looking.
So he decided to find out exactly what we wanted! For Christmas he got me:
-Victoria's Secret PINK pajama pants & shirt (Cutest pajama pants I've ever seen! I'm wearing them right now )
-VS PINK messenger bag (It was a purchase w/purchase deal, so he was able to get it as a bonus! It's reversible: either all green with writing & pictures, or green straps and white with pink polka-dots. It's absolutely adorable.)
And, usually every Christmas Eve my sister and I are allowed to open one present from under the tree, which we have yet to do. I'm thinking of choosing this one that looks like a Nintendo DS game, which means it's most likely either Jam Sessions or TS2 Castaway!
For Hanukkah, since we celebrate both holidays, we get just one present. I got a magenta iHome boombox with a clock-radio. It's gorgeous.
So I'm going to take a pomegranate bath (in my newly redesigned bathroom since the old one was the same style when we moved here 7 years ago!), put on my pajamas and fuzzy socks, and play my Nintendo DS tonight. Sounds like fun to me!
Tomorrow we've got 24 extra people coming (used to be 11 until my cousin got married), so that should be awesome! After all of this, I'm just excited to be with all of my family in a good mood with great cooking. After all, that's what the spirit of Christmas really is!
