Your Christmas Booty 2012

istockphoto_359579-christmas-butt.jpg


time for the annual Christmas Booty. i received pajamas, a sweater and socks. but more importantly we had two special announcements. my 60 year old brother asked us to clear our calendar for June because hes marrying his girlfriend. he and his fiance flew in from Denver for the dinner. its his first and its about freaking time :protest:.

secondly my youngest sister now in her early forties will have her first child in July. after years of frustrations trying to conceive and adopt they tried a fertility clinic and now she is 2 months pregnant.

this was a good Christmas.


and Eilonwy please dont post pics of Jake Gyl's butt this year unless ofcourse you got them for Christmas :wink:

    My parents bought me this backpack:

    A backpack + school supplies is given with Ash Gray Ordinary Backpack purchase - OAK Lifestyle

    (I asked for that, by the way... They didn't just decide to buy it for me randomly... :lol:)

    And then my older brother bought me this smart phone wristlet (in toffee/chocolate), for our sibling gift exchange:

    Lodis 'Audrey' Smartphone Case | Nordstrom

    I wrote on my wishlist that I wanted a smartphone wristlet in a mostly neutral color, and I think he did a pretty good job!

    What wonderful news, OBB!

    Springy, my parents have the same Keurig and love it!!!

    I got jammies, a coffee maker, memory foam mattress topper, new Pandora bracelet and a few charms, king size down pillows, a MASSIVE thick plush velvet blanket (so snuggly), lots of clothes & toiletry/bathy stuff, a bunch of DVDs and a beautiful long down jacket in a steel grey from my brother. So surprised at that one...he did a great job!!!
    I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

My parents bought us a new washing machine. :)

    I got that wallet/smartphone case for my sister. She was very happy with it.

    My husband and I bought most of our presents two weeks ago. We decided to start skiing again so we bought all new equipment, clothes, etc. I don't even want to think about how much it all cost!

    I also got a silver necklace with a little diamond on it and a mini pie baker.

    Some of my booty abundance (yes, we go overboard). Lots of favorite things including a warm soft camo jacket that the boyfriend had embroidered with his business's name in hunter orange so I won't be totally invisible : ), a heavy silver ankle bracelet he had made, cookbook, socks, spheres. I got 2 gifts cards (one for $100 at Sahalie, one for $20 at walmart) and used them today online. Got a pair of boots, a sports bra, 3 shirts, and a ring.

    My bf got me a soda stream...it's okay....
    He also got me a bag to take to and from work. The one I'm using is pretty sad.

    My mom sent me money and a package that didn't arrive yet. I think it's a knife set and a toy for the baby.

    My dad sent me money and a sweater. The sweater is not something I would have picked out, but I'll wear it. It latches at the breast and flares out. I think I'll be able to wear it pretty far into my pregnancy, so that's good. He also wants to buy the crib, so that's exciting.

    I think it depends how big your family is. My friend, for example, gets a truck load of presents from her gigantic family and they all get each other realy nice gifts. Plus her immediate family buy each other a lot. Like a sack full for stocking gifts and then mains gifts etc.

    Whereas in my family, its basically just my parents and I who buy gifts for each other and a little something (voucher) from my grandparents. :)

    murrcat, I spent the longest time trying to decide between the fitbit & the fuel band. How do you like it? I decided on the fitbit b/c I thought it would blend more easily for daily wearing.

    I got a couple of gift cards, a scarf, and some pjs.

    (I bought myself the fitbit, some peppermint bark, and an origins gift set and wrapped them up, too.... :P )

    it's nifty, I don't really know yet because I've only had it three days lol.

    Okay one thing I'm not sure about is, you have fuel points (not the same as steps, I think 2 steps is a fuel point maybe) anyway

    On thursday I walked "2.5" miles according to my pedometer on it, and reached my fuel goal for the day. Casually just to be casually doing things and not really tryin to walk 2.5, this was at the end of the day when I reached my goal.

    Today, I ran 3.5 miles (my band (you can use an app to see what it can't show) said I ran 3.5 miles) but I only had half the fuel points. So...I'm not sure if maybe it won't give you all the points for one exercise because it wants to motivate you to do more stuff or separately through out the day OR, I was running without moving my arm at all. hhahahaahahah maybe that's why but I think I move my arms when I run....

    Maybe it has to do with the number of steps combined with the time it took to get to that number? Like 2.5 miles over the course of the day means you're generally more active over all. Where as 3.5 miles in...what...45 minutes to an hour concentrates your exertion to a very short time frame and not constant activity throughout the day, so the fuel points are less even though the distance was longer.

    Did that make any sense? Apparently I'm not communicating well today.

    yes. That's what I was trying to say also, I think my brain is foreign so that when It translates into English it doesn't make sense.....I just don't know what language my brain is speaking. (alien language)
