(Subtitled what we got for Christmas)
It's hard to believe that all the presents are unwrapped and most are put away. It's good to know that all of our hard work paid off!
Sue got a new camera (to replace the one that got stolen), some boots, some shelves for her room, some earrings and a visa gift card
Loo got a bunch of clothes, a volleyball, a few pairs of shoes, and a wii game
Supe got a tether ball set, some snow boots, wii outdoor fitness game, and a Pirates lego ship
Jason got Angel (cologne) Mmm!! He smells scrum-diddley-umptious! Can't wait to put the kids to bed. he he he. He also got some clothes, and a Call of Duty game for the wii, and The Dark Knight DVD
I got some perfume, clothes, a purse, and the most important thing... ROCK BAND 2! Yeah!
Our family also got Wii fit, and some other wii paraphernalia.
I don't know if your family does this, but we ALWAYS have Christmas Eve presents. They are usually pj's but there have been a few times when we deviate from tradition and do slippers, or a blanket. THIS year, we decided to throw the night time stuff out in the snow. Not really, but our kids need pjs like they need a whole in the head!!! So me, being the awesome wife, and cool mom that I am, came up with a new idea for our tradition! And the crowd goes wild! I thought wouldn't it be fun to give the family some games on Christmas Eve and then spend the evening playing them? So, that's what we did. We researched on Amazon and some game websites and found that lots of people love Ticket to Ride and Killer Bunnies. So we picked up those, as well as a wii zapper (gun). We made our traditional breakfast for dinner instead of breakfast, loaded the kitchen with treats, and Thomas Kemper Soda (also a tradition for us) and enjoyed a very fun and competitive family game night!
Ticket to Ride is AWESOME! It's super easy to learn and to play. It's a board game with a map of the U.S. Throughout the map, there are destinations. The object of the game is to complete railroads to the destinations you have in your hand. You can also score big points for having the longest connecting track. As you are playing, you can also try to out-smart the other players and block their routes. It can get very cut-throat, or you can play it nice. The choice is yours!
Killer Bunnies is supposed to be fun (we haven't played it yet though) It's a card game in which you have to be strategic to get the most carrots and keep your bunnies alive. Of course everyone is trying to do the same thing, so you get to tar other people's bunnies, or have them abducted by aliens, or all sorts of other things. I'll let you know how it is once we play it.
(if you are interested in either game, you will have to go to your local game store or amazon, or someplace similar. They aren't avail at Toys R Us, Wal-mart or anywhere like that)
