I got knitting things (of course). I really wanted some knitting books, though, and when all the gifts were opened, I didn't have any! Hubby said "Isn't there another gift?" to his mom and she's like "yep, look behind the tree". She got me Mason-Dixon Knitting, and Socks Soar on Two Circulars, and a knitting dvd! I thought I was just getting an anklette (beautiful as it is) from her. I really get more excited about knitting books than jewelry? Yep!!
The only gifts that come close to the knitting gifts are the great flannel jammies hubby got me. I love flannel jammies, and I got 2 new pair! He also tricked me with one gift. I always get a set of Charmed dvds on the holidays. I picked that gift up first, because I knew what it was, and he took it away, and said to open it last. ??? So, I got to it, and it was the first season of the Gilmore Girls! I love the GG's and Charmed! Great shows.
So, after cleaning up the paper mess, I casted on with some of my pretty new wool. I knitted a sock for a bar of soap and left it for MIL. The blue/turquoise soap sock is the one I made for MIL. The brown/pink/red one is the first one I ever made, with the left over SWS and Paton's Merino. I had a pic of them here, but blogger is doing it again! I can't get it to show! I'll post it soon. Really!
Since I am such a camera hog, there are almost no pictures of me at all! I did take videos of the kids opening presents. They're so funny!
When we got home, we all played Guitar Hero II, and SingStar on the PSII. I got videos of Hubby beating SP on SingStar, but on Guitar Hero, SP rocks! He was standing on his one good foot, but I made him sit. LD wanted to do the song Paint It Black over and over and over!
We had tons of fun, but I definitely ate way too much junk, and the house is seriously trashed! My stomach is feeling very yucky, and all the sugar I ingested did not do me any good! We still have one more Christmas celebration, on New Year's Eve. I should probably try to eat a little healthier at that one!
I swore I wasn't going to Traffic City, where we do our shopping, until after the new year, but the boys each have gift cards for the mall, so I don't see how I am going to be able to avoid it.
I am going to go try to make that picture show up!
I hope everyone's holidays were bright and the new year is great for all!
