Christmas in a Nutshell... well ok, a bit longer than that.

Nice. The nicest Christmas I've had in... I can't remember how long.

Tyger got stoned on catnip and loves his new fuzzy pink slipper toy.

Zoe spent the day nursing a rawhide bone and letting us put ribbons around her neck.

Kesia went through three toys, pulling the squeekers out along with all the stuffing. She's one happy girl as she just stole the remainder of Zoe's rawhide. And will soon get Zoe's last stuffed toy and de-squeek it, I'm sure. She also has multiple ribbons on, she looks good in red.

Luke is STILL playing with the new Wii. He's all hot and sweaty and tired... it's GOOD. He got tons more of everything else a 7-year old boy could possibly want, his favorites besides the Wii are a digital piggy bank (it counts the money as you put it in) and a voice recorder/warper thing.

Frank got all new leather's for riding the motorcycle he got for his birthday last month. And a new pair of Chuck Taylors. He's also been playing the Wii and thinks it's the best toy ever.

Me. I gave out a list this year for the the first time ever and I got most of what I put on it. I got some cool glass presses - crunches and a spiral press (for making glass beads), some gold foil for melting into glass, some books and new ski gloves and socks. Some Lush bath bombs and a promise that my bathtub will be ready for a soak early in 2008. The new dishes I wanted are on backorder but no biggie. Oh, and I got a NAP, made a super easy but yummy scone recipe for breakfast and have the simplest of roasts cooking. I did NOT spend the day cooking and cleaning and waiting on everyone else... and I'm not sick. What a change from years past, I don't know how or why, but I'll take it.

OH! And it Snowed. Perfect. And the Zune got hooked up to my stereo so I've had constant nice music all day long. KT Tunstall is on now. Love. And my friend from Germany put me in an Etsy Treasury with some of my best WetCanvas friends. Yay. Only thing missing is the big family dinner, but maybe next year - my parents and grandmother are planning on moving out this way next summer.

Wishing a happy day for all of you too. Hope you got everything you wished for and nothing you didn't. Xoxo, Pam
