Christmas this year was wonderful. We opened gifts after a breakfast of bacon and eggs! Jordan gave me some really cool gifts, including new speakers for my computer (they are metallic light pink!), “Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix”, “Pirates of the Caribbean 3”, “Pan’s Labyrinth”, a lovely glass dish that can be used as a cake stand/punch bowl/trifle dish, various red KitchenAid things, pyjamas, and of course lots of chocolate! I gave him a game he wanted for Xbox 360, some movies, mittens, and a 6-in-1 heavy coat for going hunting. 🙂
After that, we went to my mom’s to exchange presents and for dinner. She bought me way too much! A novel, two cookbooks, bath stuff, socks, chocolates, a Harry Potter calendar, and — get this — a Crock Pot slow-cooker! My eyes just about bugged out of my head! Now I have to learn how to use it. hehe I gave my mom a pretty pot for a plant, and two hanging star tealight holders. Keesje gave me these really cool Egyptian plaque things that are made out of rock that hang on the wall: on the three separate rectangular rock things are Egyptian motifs and hieroglyphs. They look really cool! I gave her some Body Butter from The Body Shop and a Final Fantasy game for her Playstation 2. For Krystal, I gave her a La Senza gift card. A Chapters gift card to Mark. Oh, Mark gave Jordan and I an African game called Mancala but we haven’t played it yet. He also gave us Starbucks coffee beans!
Dinner was great! Delicious turkey and stuffing, sweet potatoes, green beans and parsnips, potatoe thingy (made by yours truly), rolls, and for dessert Keesje had made chocolate cheescake. My mom also made pumpkin pie!
Today, on Boxing Day, I worked at 7 am until 4:30 pm. I was scheduled until 6 pm but I got to leave early. Jordan picked me up and we ended up going to the mall before it closed and I found a couple pairs of black pants for work at Garage Clothing.
