Christmas 2008

Christmas morning was great!! We woke up and picked through our newly made stockings and then we made our way to the tree. Jaron got some new snowboarding mittens, a cute little egg sized frying pan and spatula, Call of Duty 4 for his Xbox (below are before and after pictures of that) and two books by his current favorite author, Dinesh D'Souza.

In my family the 5 kids 'pick names' for Christmas, but we don't really because somehow every year I get my brother, Brigham, and he gets me. CRAZY! I really don't mind it though, I love my bro. This year he send us some of the best hot chocolate EVER, Stephen's. THANKS BRIG!!

Even though my sister, Jenni (Nini), didn't 'have me' for Christmas she still got us something. Sweet, huh!? She got us an authentic Spanish Churrera (a little thing that makes churros) and a chocolate bar to make Champorada (Mexican hot chocolate). Nini was in Bolivia for Christmas, but called in the morning to wish a Merry Christmas. Below is the Churrera and me on the phone with her. Thanks Nini!

Along with all these wonderful gifts I also got a WAY cool, new and improved backpack. I love it, but its white -- I'll get it so dirty, Chacos (outdoorsie sandals that last a lifetime), way cute scrapbooking stuff from Jaron's sister, Kristin & hubby, Brandon (somehow they always give the best gifts, Jaron and I can't figure out how they do it). We also got some gift cards from fam, Target is always good, thanks "dad-in-law" and The Pie is the best, how did you know BA?!
I love Christmas so much, but my family is so fantastic with their gifts that it makes me feel like such a flakey piece of dog poop. Thanks to all of you that love us, we love you too!

OK! So, I know I haven't done a thing in about a month, sorry to all my faithful followers. You should be on overload after these next two blogs.

The after Thanksgiving Day sale (Black Friday) usually renders good deals, but in our case there was one GREAT DEAL! Sears was blowing out these Panasonic 42" Plasma TV for cheap, so we snagged one. We got in home before Christmas, but that was our Christmas. We got each other little stuff, but a TV that's inexpensive really isn't cheap.

Here are Jaron and I loving the box that contains the most expensive thing we own, except our cars, but not by much.

Before Christmas I took it upon myself to make us some stockings. We each picked out our favorite fabric and I went crazy from there. It progressed into a big project including: fleece, fringe and a lot of patience. Jaron's is on the left (Army camo with green fleece inside and black fringe that Jaron wasn't too happy about) and mine on the right (brown with blue pokadots, blue fleece interior and blue accent fringe). I had lots of fun making them and experimenting since I didn't have a pattern.

Christmas morning!! Us in our pjs and our cute little space-saving tree (we got it from Jaron's sister, Kristin two years ago). As you might notice our new TV is in the background with a big bow. We've already watched a ton of TV in one month, including a cute old Christmas claymation called Rudolph that my sister, Beth Anne, got for me for my birthday. Thanks BA!

To see how the rest of Christmas was see the Christmas blog.
