Hope you had a Merry Christmas!

I haven't been stitching much as Christmas was approaching. Christmas Eve, Scott , Justin, Dylan and I baked cookies and watched Christmas shows. We had a lot of fun. Justin had to work Christmas morning from 7-10 but his replacement did not show up til after 11. So the rest of us ate breakfast since we were hungry. Justin got home and then we unwrapped gifts. Scott and Dylan bought me a beautiful fairie figurine. Scott also bought me a GC for The Body Shop and Dylan got me a GC for Yankee Candle. Justin got me a GC for the Body Shop. Then we headed to my parent's house. My sister was there as well. We ate too much and I drank too much lol. My parent's bought me a beautiful silver necklace with diamonds. My sister bought me skull candy(headphones) that were on my wish list. Yesterday I went and spent my GCs and got 3 different fragrances at The Body Shop. Then at Yankee Candle I got a tart burner. I already had one but it for Halloween and I wanted one for everyday. Then onto the Calendar store. I bought a Fairie calendar and then a small one with cat naps, soo cute. I use this for monthly budgeting and paying bills.
Oh yeah we had high winds really bad on Christmas Eve and when I woke up Christmas morning I let the dog out and our shed had blown right down, nothing left to it. I have to take pics tomorrow and am hoping nothing was ruined that was inside. There are a couple of bikes, our riding lawn mower and our snow blower. So we have to remove the debris and take pics of what was ruined.
Today we celebrated Christmas with Scott's side. it was nice. I had made different cross stitch pieces for the family members. We each recieved money from Scott's parents. The other family members didn't exchange. I knew that but still wanted to give them something. So this week I want to got to Joanne's with my money and get the styrofoam burning tool that they have for the cubes. I also received a GC for walmart from my boss. I did use a little of that to buy new cookie sheets for Christmas Eve.
I finished listening to The Winding Ways Quilt by Jennifer Chiaverini and am getting ready to listen to Wicked by Philip Margolin. Then I have Twilight and New Moon on audio.
I am stitching Christmas Day Play by Lynn's Prints from the JCS 2003 issue. I stitched a litrle bit on that tonight while watching Nora Roberts' Montana Sky that was on Lifetime and I had on the DVR. Since my shows aren't on this week I am hoping to get the rest of the movies watched on the DVR. I have 9 movies left and 1 dog show from Thanksgiving. When I started 2 months ago clearing what was up on my DVR I only had about 10 hours left on the DVR and I now have around 78 hours left. A lot of my TV shows are being moved around and some coming back midseason so it will get used a lot again.
Well I need to get to bed. I just wanted to post and let you know we survived the snow storms and we had over a foot of snow but the last couple of days have been in the 50s and 60s so not a spot of snow is left and flooding has begun. Supposed to be cold all week and chances of snow again.
