Hope you got a chance to read the Christmas Eve Recap!!
I forgot to add on there that before everyone got here
I WENT FOR A RUN!!!!!!!!!!
Yes, you heard it right!! I was really impressed it was almost
2km and I ran most of it!! (besides the hill) I haven't run in months!!
If you ever want to know the distance of a run
(no matter where you are) check out this site MAP MY RUN
Ok on to Christmas morning.
Santa showed up! We must have been good this year!
If you follow me on twitter, you'll know that Dave's big gift (a banjo guitar) didn't get here for Christmas
(even though it was ordered in October - apparently they forgot to order it - tisk tisk)
So I channelled my inner artist and made him this
I gave it to him with a ukulele!! Which he enjoyed!
They were made especially for us in Newfoundland
Dave's mom sent them!! (un-stuffed)
I got totally spoiled by Dave...
And I must have been very very good this year!
LOOK WHAT I GOT!!!!
I am soooooooo happy! I love it! I named it LULU!! (hehe)
Most of that was just stocking stuffers!! :)
I got spoiled (and this was just the beginning)
I loved this beautiful lotus flower candle holder - he got it at a multicultural trade fair we went too!
Haha.. it's somewhat of an inside joke, but let's just say sock monkeys scare him!
This is from my childhood and my mom and I decided to regift it to him.
It made many strange appearances during the last two days.
(like in the Christmas tree, hanging in the pantry, up on this light fixture)
He also got tons of tools, and so many other goodies!
Then we made some yummy breaky! (my new camera wasn't charged yet, so I used my old one)
Dave's families tradition is to saute up left over veggies to make "hash"
I cooked it until it browned... and we also had a mini turkey sandwhich
So super yum!!
Next up we headed over to Mom and Dad's for more food and more gifts!
~~ ENTER NEW CAMERA~~
bare with me, I'm just learning!!
Mom and Dad's tree!
I took some close ups, but must have had my finger over the flash!! hehe
Then the gifts began (again) I got a Wiiiiiiii with all the fixings!!
He loves big mugs!!
Then I went crazy taking portraits of everyone (well the ones that let me)
(and their motorhome that they are disapearing in in September.
It was a great morning - one of the best Christmas mornings yet!
I didn't take pictures of all of our gifts, as we got spoiled rotten
but some other highlights -
LULULEMON gift cards - for me -yes!!!!!
Lift tickets for snowboarding for Dave, he was happy
Wii Fit - me - woot
Personal Trainer game for the Wii... Yes
Supermario brothers for the Wii for Dave
I think I may loose Dave to this game - he loved it!
Anyways, I am gone for a few days
We got a great deal on a hotel room for a few days in Victoria, so we are going away for a
little romantic get away (and shopping at lululemon!!!!!!!!!!!)
Hope you guys had a beautiful Christmas
Lots of love,
