Nice Christmas

Christmas Eve I had cooked a beef lentil soup and took it to my in laws. They hadn't had a great year health wise and my SILs do everything for them so I gave them a break. Plus Christmas was at my house, on Christmas day, with my parent's and sister. The inlaws were all getting together on Christmas so we couldn't be with them. This way Scott could spend time with them on Christmas Eve. After that Scott, Justin, Dylan and I went to a local road, to see the Christmas lights. Came home to cheese, crackers and pepperoni.

Christmas morning we all got up and we opened our stockings. Then we ate breakfast before opening the gifts. Was a tradition for me growing up and I have continued it.

Scott got me 4 large jar candles from Yankee candle, 2 scents from Bath & Body works of body gel, lotion and spray. A Trans Siberian Orchestra CD. Justin got me a really nice purse(I am very picky and he did a great job picking one out.) He also got me a iHome for my ipod, a Starbucks plastic cup and a cute Christmas teddy bear. Dylan didn't have money so he is going to do me a favor :-) My sister bought me Satsimu from The Body Shop and my parents gave me a gift card for CJ Banks. My manager at work gave me a cute little plastic bath tub filled with bath items.

Sunday I went to CJ Banks and spent my GC. They had great sales going on. Oh and my boss gave us all Visa cards. So I plan on shopping at a Cross Stitch store that is 2 hours away. I have never been there but heard that it is huge and they have everything.

I have stitched a little bit on O Christmas Tree by Angel Stitching. I am hoping to finish it this week. Tonight I watched: Body of Lies and it was ok.
I am getting ready for the Crazy January Challenge and the Up For a Challenge.
