It was such a nice Christmas. The only thing I didn't get do that I really wish I had was to make lots of pictures. I had the camera back, so I really have no excuse. We did video it for the most part though. We slept in until 7:30 which is *wonderful*. No more 4am Christmas mornings! The girls were all happy with their gifts. They got these new cell phones that they have absolutely not let out of their hands. It's pretty sweet.

I got a heated blanket! I'm in love. I tend to always be cold and I drift off like a baby when I'm warm. So this is a perfect gift for me. I also got candles and many gift cards. So lots of shopping in my future! Mike also always renews my B&N member card. I love that.

My aunt got me this little chocolate pot that melts chocolate for you. Now this would be a lovely gift by itself, BUT it's funny too. I used to make molded chocolates for Christmas for everyone. Boxes and boxes of chocolates. With all different kinds of homemade fillings. It would take 2-3 full days and the kitchen would look like a disaster area. But it was so beautiful and *so* good (if I do say so myself). This is the 3rd year that I've not done it. It has to be done not more than a few days from when you want to give it (so very close to Christmas) and that is such a hard time to commit that kind of time to a project. So the chocolate pot was a subtle hint. LOL Well, that and then asking me flat out where the chocolate was this year. I suppose I'll have to find some way to do it next year. And I love the chocolate pot.

We took the tree down yesterday. It's early I know. But late for us. We usually do it on the 26th. We've been known to do it on the 25th before. I like to get my house back in order. So we got all the Christmas stuff put up for another year. Or 10 months at least. ; ) And I cleaned for an hour or so. I plan to do some more cleaning today. And do a little grocery shopping.

I'm so glad you had a nice Christmas! We did not take any pictures either. My tree is a-comin' down tomorrow!
Happy New Year to you!
