A very good Christmas!

Wow, I'm still recovering from all the Christmas Hoopla! We went to my In-Law's house on Christmas Eve. The boys got bikes and went on a Sea Plane ride with the neighbor, who was dressed up like Santa. My husband went with them - I refused to go, I hate little planes. Bradley had fun and Jake fell asleep before they even took off, I couldn't believe it!

Coming home finally (I was just a little worried!).

On Christmas day we opened presents with my mom and brother and his wife. I got my mom some Cath Kidston pillow cases and you would've thought I was giving her a diamond ring! She was so excited over those pillow cases, it was pretty funny. I got my magnifying Ott-Lite from my Mother-in-Law (I really didn't mean to blurt out that's what I wanted in front of her). :) I haven't really gotten a chance to try it out yet. I also got an iPod, which I absolutely love!

The biggest thing I got was from my brother. He decided I needed a company car! I told him no, that it was too much, but he had made up his mind and there was no changing it. He told me what he was planning last week, and I was kind of in disbelief, and yesterday he called me and asked me to meet him at the car dealer. He had me test drive a minivan, and then told me I could go home and he'd take care of it. I came back when he was done and drove home with this...

New Car!!
Chrysler Town & Country minivan.

I love this car so much! It's so nice - all the doors open automatically, it's the coolest thing! And I can separate the kids - no more fighting in the car, it's wonderful! :) So anyway, I definitely can't quit my job anytime soon, there's no way I could give up that car! :) We all caught a little cold, and it's been dragging me down, so no stitching again tonight - I'm off to bed! Write later! :) Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!
