So My boss was nice enough to let me go home early on Christmas eve. When I came home, I expected to find April's parents cooking our Christmas dinner. Being that we were going to eat at 6 and the turkey needs to cook for awhile. 2:30 and the house is empty...3:00 no parents. Finally at 3:45 we have parents and Sandy (april's mom) is panicing about the turkey.
So one minor set back. Dinner was fabulous. We had turkey, hassleback potatoes, mushroom sage stuffing, cranberry dipping sauce for the turkey, panzenella salad, gravy, this greenbean shallot dish and pumpkin cheesecake. Although the pumpkin cheesecake tasted more like pumpkin pie than a cheesecake.
We also had drinks o' plenty. We were drinking 357's. Which is a shot of Vodka, a shot of spiced rum, and a shot and a half of Amaretto, then you fill the rest of the glass up with 7 up. We watched Peewee's Christmas special, Garfield Christmas special, then we watched Journey and Queen videos. The night was fine until Derek puked on himself, puked on Maggie's stairs (yes my dog uses stairs to get on our bed), In our walk in closet, in the hallway, and in the bathtub. So a night of drinking and eating brownies has created brown stains all over my house :(! So I was up until 4am, scrubbing the carpet, being angry and embarrassed, and extremely tired.
I was up at 8am to make cinnamon rolls. We munched on breakfast and waited for April's parents to come back. We got our goodies from our stockings ( I got an assortment of lotion and sprays from bath and bodyworks and some tarts for my burner)
We then opened our pressies. I was spoiled yet again. I got:
2 Kitchen aid utensil sets in red (to match my stand mixer I bought myself in February)
a kitchen aid emulsion blender in red
a kitchen aid mandolin in red
Some nice crocks for the oven
An assorment of hello kitty items (pens, paper, lunch containers)
The golden compass books
hello kitty pj's
gift card for bed bath and beyond
Mario Galaxy for wii with the "help guide"
a sandlewood reed diffuser.
a ipod case
a pink wii remote cover
an elliott smith hoodie
Bill and Teds excellent adventure
To live and Die in LA hahaha
and Young Guns 2
My husband hates that I love kitchen items for Christmas, but I love it. So with my gift card I will invest in a new steak knife set and cooks knives. Maybe a new pan.
Oh yea...My husband also got me a headset mic for my computer and the Podcasting for dummies book. This I found extremely funny since Holly, Walt, and I joke about about borrowing Taylor's. My husband said that maybe we i would like to know how podcasts work since I listen to so many. Sounds fishy to me. hahaha!
Ok I am extremely tired and I am back to work tomorrow.
This time next week, I will be in Disneyland! hehe!
