My purple gifts - new flip flops, a cashmere scarf (so soft!) and sparkly earrings!
My pink gifts - pretty new mouse, biking Barbie(!!!), insulated water bottle!
Apparently Jeff noticed that I would stop and look at her every time we zipped past the toy section in Target, and bought her for me! Look how the flowers in the wheels match the flowers on my blog AND bike! And she's wearing a running skirt/capri combo, just like I have (although sadly mine is not pink). I'll have to find a cat to go in the basket and then the picture will be complete...and I promise to NOT cut her hair or give her pierced ears (shades of some failed childhood styling attempts on my old Barbies).
Deep down I'm an 8 year old girl who still loves her Barbies.
We had a nice, relaxing day - played with our gifts, watched some movies on our new big TV (we've finally ditched the big box and have a flat screen in the family room thanks in part to the boys), and ate our traditional Christmas dinner - only tradition was broken as Jeff and the boys prepared all of the side dishes on Christmas Eve since I was working all dang day. I have to say, they did a nice job - everything tasted great!
Wearing the crowns from our Christmas crackers and showing our prizes - they were pretty good this year, with a squirt gun, colored pencils, a bottle opener and a parcheesi-type game.
