Christmas, Parts IX, X, & XI

So, all this holiday fun will have to be crammed into one post- I have some serious packing to do! Saturday, we attended the holiday party. Sassy had a great time, and so did we. The food was great, the crafts were fun (if I do say so myself) and the kids all had a ball.
Saturday night was the mom's gift swap. We did a semi-white elephant swap. Everyone was to bring a nice, wrapped gift valued at $25, but then we did the drawing numbers and stealing gifts thing. Of course, my original gift was stolen at the last minute, but all was well. I ended up with a really nice set of mugs, some coffee that smelled delicious brewing in my kitchen, and a few other goodies. OK, seriously, M&M premium mint chocolate M&M's are like my new favorite thing! Besides the fact that they are almost too pretty to eat, they are delicious. I made the mistake of bringing the bag in bed with me yesterday afternoon when I was curled up under a cozy blanket finishing New Moon, and I "accidentally" ate half the bag. Oops! Anyway, the swap was a great time. I laughed harder than I had in a while, and I am so thankful to have those girls in my life!

This morning was the kids gift swap at Chuck E Cheese. Thank God someone other than myself ran it this year- it went so much more smoothly! Sassy got a new Belle doll, which is perfect considering Belle is her new obsession! Little A brought home a neat stacking cup toy. I'm sure she will love playing with it very soon! Sassy enjoyed a few rides and games. She collected 116 tickets, with the held of daddy playing ski ball, so she was very excited to pick out her prizes!

As I type, Ty is off getting his hair cut, the girls are sleeping, and I am obviously procrastinating to the max by writing this instead of putting away laundry, packing suitcases, and starting dinner. So, with that, I sign off until next time!
