For the first year my mom, Dad and Step mom all came and stayed the night to be at our house first thing Christmas morning. It was such a wonderful thing just having the family here. Thomas' mom Cathy and nephew Cody came over this morning to open presents too so we each took turns opening present individually and it was wonderful... the icing on the cake... it has snowed. I mean about 3 inches here at my house for Christmas.... the first White Christmas of my life!
Now I already received the best presents I thought I could get having my family here and everything turn out so nice, that was until I started opening actual presents lol I am sooooo spoiled and I know this now. I could not believe the gifts I have received! Thomas got me Zumba for the PS3 move which I opened and played on Thursday (told ya I was spoiled). Then, I got a watch from Thomas' aunt Becky that was beautiful, my kiddos went and picked out a necklace for me that has a heard and is adorable, they pooled their money and bought it for me together. Thomas' mom (Cathy) got me emerald and diamond hoop earrings that are absolutely beautiful, My dad and Karen got me a wine server (yum yum yummy!).... spoiled ROTTEN I tell ya!
Then comes the first wrapped present from Thomas. Its a card, A "naughty" card that makes me chuckle, and he talks about a Naughty Trip that we are going to take, and inside is two tickets to go see .... ARE YOU SITTING DOWN????? LADY GAGA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He knows I adore her and her music. Her music makes me feel young and alive and always makes me want to shake my booty! :) HE blew my mind with this gift. I never expected it. I had to read on the tickets to find out what it was and when I read her name I screamed it "LADY GAGA!!!". That was totally awesome! It is in Nashville in April so now I have something else to look forward to! One of the funniest things was listen to my Dad saying he didn't even know who Lady Gaga was (How could they not lol). Cracked me up!
Now for the last gift I opened. Another surprise from Thomas. He got me the new kindle (black) with a leather cover that has a light built in it. This present ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I so have been eyeing it every time I seen one somewhere I would say "there is the new kindle". I even said it just the other day! I look at it all the time but I have a kindle (my daddy gave me and I love it!) so I would have never bought myself a new one.... but Thomas thought I should have it since I was eyeing it so much and knew how much I loved reading on it. I love love love this gift. Right now, I am updating with my books from my other kindle! :)
I am so wonderfully happy inside. Its not the gifts. Its the love and time we have shared this Christmas! It has been absolutely perfect!
I will try to get pics up soon, and I hate that I haven't blogged anything since before our Trip to Florida until now... but its only been a few weeks!!!! I miss Heather and Darin and so wish they were closer or we were closer lol or something like that!!! And that trip was one to go down in the books as one of the absolute best times of my whole entire life! :) More on that later (hopefully) time is getting away from me lately.
