My grandma sent us a bunch of treats in the mail including super boozy chocolates. I told the boys to act drunk in that middle picture…then Ryan got in there too...what a smart ass. The kids were so bummed when I put this photo on Facebook. Puns intended.
We each opened one present on Christmas eve…day. Then spent like a million hours playing the Big Bang Theory board game. It’s really fun!
I got Ryan this shirt for Christmas and it is awesome. He ordered my gift from the same Etsy company. I don’t really want to badmouth them here, mainly because of something Beca wrote recently on her blog. I think that she’s right and running a small business is very tough.
That being said, I ordered this in mid-November and it showed up five days before Christmas. His gift to me was ordered on November 27th and still hasn’t arrived. They’re making good on it and refunding his money but it was a very frustrating experience for both of us. So even though it’s a cool sweater, I also don’t really feel like promoting their store here.
These straws are AWESOME. They’re for filtering any type of water except ocean water. You just suck water into it, and voila, it’s clean. They literally are saving people’s lives around the world. For our family they’re perfect for camping! And they’re good for something like 1000 gallons of water.
As I write this post Ryan and the kids are out Boxing Day shopping. I wasn’t even invited, thank goodness. Everyone knows crowds and I don’t mix well. Ryan already got up at 5AM to get us this television at like half price.
This totally rules because we were still using a 24 inch tube tv, you know, the big square box ones. Straight outta the stone age! It sucked, we’d be watching Jeopardy all squinting and going “what does that say?” when words appeared on the screen. Or we’d be watching The Walking Dead and something would happen to the left, which is OFF SCREEN for us. Lame. But not any more!
The future is now, people.
