Wonderful, Relaxing Christmas

We had a wonderful, relaxing Christmas. Jim bought me way too much (as usual). In fact, I am ini the process of figuring out everything on my new laptop. I am so excited to have this awesome gift. Now I can take all of you with me everywhere I go. Santa brought Gabe and Zane a Nintendo DS each. So Gabe and I have decided we need to go hang out at Starbuck's with my laptop and his DS. Just because we can.
Jack got 2 new pieces to his Geo Trax. He was so excited he jumped up and down. Maci Clare got a Bye-Bye Chou Chou baby and a stroller. She has been pushing her baby around the living room. She also got Tinkerbell. We've watched it 4 times already.
My friend, Belinda, (who I haven't seen in forever and I am making it a point to call her and drop by one day after the kids get back in school), made me a beautiful bracelet with all the kids' names on it. I love it. She made me one with the 3 boys and I gave it back to her to add Maci Clare's name and we just never got around to it. Jim called and she fixed it up for me. It was in my stocking. It is my favorite gift.
I also got a Pink CD in my stocking. I love Pink. I did get the clean version of Funhouse so I can listen to it and not worry about what the kids are listening to.
My mom and dad and grandma spent the afternoon with us. My mom cooked lunch and brought it all to my house so that the kids could stay with their toys. My mom is awesome like that. The 3 boys went home with my parents last night and Jim and I watched Hancock. We also had the 1st 3 shows in the first season of Weeds. Have you seen this show? OMG, it is pretty vulgar but you just have to keep watching to see what happens. Anyway, I'm going to try to post a picture of my bracelet when I figure this laptop thing out. I want everyone to see how talented Belinda is. But she just refuses to sell her stuff. She has 6 kids and I think she just doesn't want another thing to think about. But she makes beautiful jewelry and she enjoys doing it for her and her friends. Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas. We sure did!
