Christmas Catchup

Normally, on December 31st, I do a year in review post of some sort.  This year, though, it doesn't seem like anything happened worth reviewing.  What with Cody off at college and me becoming more and more of a hermit by the day, nothing seems to happen any more. 

What I can do, however, is give you a brief review of our Christmas. 

We had a good Christmas, if a quiet one.  Beverly is still in Texas looking after Aunt Martha and Uncle Lavergne.  Shelbi, Josh, and Cory went to Josh's parents house, and Brittani and Cameron were in Tennessee with Cameron's family. 

James had worked nights, but he still got up and cooked Christmas dinner, so we ate over there.  Cody and I, and Mike and Dennise.  And James, of course. 

Before that, Cody and I opened our gifts to each other.  I didn't lay them all out and take a picture like I've done in the past.  Honestly, I didn't think of it until just now.  I did take pictures of everything, but I won't bore you will all of those.  They are in my Facebook albums if you really want to go see them. 

I'll just share these few with you.

Cody and Jesse sharing Christmas smooches.

Cody wrapped this by himself.  Can you tell? 

And this is what was in it.

Cody didn't get anything but clothes.  He said he liked it that way.  I think this was his favorite shirt. 

At least, he giggled the most when he opened it.  It says, "I'm not crazy.  My mother had me tested."

I also got my new calendar, and a new hat.  These hats are so warm.  Kind of expensive, but worth it, if you ask me.

Like I said earlier, the rest of my pictures are in my Facebook albums, so I won't bore you with them here. 

Even so, but I've got to show you these.

I got a bit of money for Christmas.  I put it together with the money I got for my birthday, I was able to buy these things.

They are a Journal Of Impossible Things, with a 10th Doctor sonic screwdriver pen, an 11th Doctor sonic screwdriver, and two lapel pins.  One says, "Hello, my name is Stormageddon, Dark Lord Of All", and the other says, "There is something that doesn't make sense.  Let's go and poke it with a stick." 

 I was very disappointed in The Journal Of Impossible Things.  The product description on the Amazon website said it would be 10" x 6", but when I got it, it was only 5.5" x 3.5". 

Turns out it was the package that was 10" x 6", and not the product itself.  I did write a review on Amazon, and I hope someone can read it and not get rooked like I did.  Other than the size, though, I love the little book.  The pages look just like the ones in the episode. 

The 11th Doctor sonic screwdriver is pretty cool.  It expands, lights up, and makes that sonic sound. 

Finally, a new case of Jammie Dodgers. 

I managed to get them for $20.  You really have to stalk the page to get them at that price.  Sometimes, they are $47.  Every now and again, you can find them at the lower price.  When I do, I make sure to order them right away. 

Oh, and free shipping. 

Well, the fireworks have started, and the dogs are panicking.  So, I'll go comfort them and wish you all a very happy and prosperous new year.
