I spent Christmas up at my sister's house in Adelanto and played with her kids almost the entire time. I sung songs I don't know on their little kid's version of a karaoke machine and had a 1 hour tea party with them (they wouldn't let me leave because they kept serving me imaginary eggs and cupcakes). :lol: My mom made some type of Vietnamese soup. I think it's called bún riêu but all she said was that it was a regional North Vietnam dish. But I mostly snacked on raw vegetables and chocolate covered macadamia nuts throughout the day. I ended up getting some extra cash and a Starbucks gift card for Christmas. I treated myself to The Body Shop bar soaps (coconut, strawberry, and sweet lemon) and a pair of jeans, a hoodie, and a blue button down from Old Navy.

Sounds lovely Vanessa. I love the coconut soap from the Body Shop.

I'd like to wish everyone a belated Merry Christmas! I hope you all had a lovely holiday full of pleasant surprises and good cheer.

Me, I'm exhausted after the past several days full of family, presents and snow. Good thing this will be a short work week. I'm ready for a long winter's nap. :goodnight:

Meanwhile, I've got icicles that extend from the roof of my (two-story) building all the way to the ground. Seriously.

The view outside my window this morning:

That's pretty cool, eorious. I can see Great H rubbing her sunburnt back against them and going "Ahhhhhhh......"

:)

I can't believe it's over and in a few days it'll be New Year's Eve. Although we still have to get together with my bff and have the kids do their giftie exchange, so.....not quite over, I guess. :D

Aww, Great H. :goodman:

Eorious, our bathroom window gets icicles, but none as heavy duty as that! :shock:

Laura, it's always fun to have present exchanges AFTER Christmas - it makes the fun last that little bit longer. :D

Nancy, you just saved me! :whistle: I am still working on my pressie & cards for all of you. I hope to get your cards/pressie out this weekend. My sincere apologies. I am so excited to send everything out, however, my homemade gift is taking far longer than anticipated. I think that I am about 3/4 finished. It's coming. Promise.

Many thanks for your cards & gifts, it has provided a lot of Christmas cheer. I feel the love. :heart: :hug: :heart:

Love you guys!

What can I say, my building is very conducive to icicle growth. :lol:

I agree with Nancy. I like to postpone exchanging gifts with friends until after Christmas, because it gives me something to look forward to once the holiday excitement dies down.

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas around the world! I just got back to New York, but I was FOTC-spoiled while I was home :D Just a few of my gifts...


Magnets! They match my free poster from the HBO store and are so fun to play with...

Sticker for my car! (but I'm waiting to put it on until after this crazy snow goes away)

Gorgeous poster!!! It made it on the plane safe & sound. Still need to get it framed, but for now I've got B & J in my bed :wink:

Hope everyone had relaxing holiday breaks!
