no more Christmas

We celebrated Christmas with my family this past weekend. It was supposed to be a Saturday-Sunday affair, but we decided to surprise my parents and sister by meeting up with them at my sister's game on Friday night. They were so surprised - awesome! And it was a really good game at my old high school (my sister plays for the rival team - she transferred this year).

That night we opened gifts. The boys got Sesame Street characters to play with, Up! (a highly recommended movie), a drum set (from my big sister for Moose), some teething toy things & a train (for Squirt), and Thomas the Tank Engine toys (Moose). Probably some other stuff too but I have the worst memory.

I got the movie Mad Money, an ASL book (from my sister - thanks), Anthony got Catchphrase, and then my parents got Anthony and I a Wii AND the Wii Fit Plus! Holy cow, I almost cried. I thought we'd get one when they were 20 years old haha! I was so excited!!

We saw my grandma that night at her friends' birthday party. The next day we went to visit my great-grandma in the nursing home. It's just getting worse with her memory and Alzheimer's. But I still love to visit. :)

Big A & Moose napped while Squirt & I went with my parents to my sister's other bball game. It was fun to have that one-on-one time with Squirt.

Big A & I went to the movies that night. We saw Blind Side after stopping at Sonic for some dessert and Target to just walk around. What a great movie! Seriously, go see it. Or buy it when it comes out on DVD.

Today was mostly lounging and snacking (oh my parents' house is NOT good for a diet haha). Then we came home and got unpacked. Which took an ungodly amount of time.

So Christmas is over for us. Until later this year.

Wow! I am so jealous! I want a Wii and Wii fit so bad. If I did not have so many expenses coming up the first half of this year, I would totally splurge and buy one. Let me know if you like it as much as you think you well.

We are planning to see Blind Side when it gets to the 2 dollar theater here.. I've been wanting to see it since it came out!
