Yay! Merry Christmas! I had a very nice Christmas at my parents' house with my sisters. Niel and his family came over for most of Christmas day, too, and that was also fun. I loved watching my nephews open their presents and get all excited about it. My traditional Christmas Eve pajamas was a nightgown with a kitty print that made me miss my cats, but I'll be going back home tomorrow so I won't have to worry about them anymore. :)
I had Emily this year for our rotational gift giving, and I made her a set of bookends out of clay. They are a pair of dragons, and I thought they turned out pretty well. Emily seemed to like them, so that was good because I couldn't have done anything else -- no money. I already had the supplies for this. Dad got Mom a flat screen tv with dvd player attached and a wall mount to put it up in her sewing room. NICE. I'm a little jealous! (j/k) Mom got Dad a four-wheeler and he had lots of fun yesterday pulling his grandkids around on their new sleds. It was fun to watch -- while they were in range, anyway. :)
My mom also got a Wii Fit and everyone had fun playing on that while I watched. I'm over the weight limit. That really hurt, but it's given me a new determination because I really want one, and it looked like fun, and I am now the largest person in the family so I can't even use the Wii Fit to get fit! So, my New Year's resolution is going to be to lose enough weight that I can use a Wii Fit, and secondary to that is to get a job and save enough money that I can buy one. For now, my miniature goal to help me get to that one, is to go for a walk -- even if it's a really short one -- every day this week. When I accomplish that goal, I'll set one for the next week. I think I'm also going to get a picture of the Wii Fit and stick it on my door or something so I see it every day and remember that that's what I want.
Anyway, I'll post my progress, and I'll take pictures of Emily's dragons and post them soon, too.
