I’ve been too tired, stressed, whatever lately (and have been fighting off the cold that seems to have caught up with me today) and had been meaning to post my ‘loot list’ that I’ve put off ’til now…
Jessie made out like a bandit this year, LOL. She had pretty much Barbie everything, including an electric guitar, vet/pet shop play set, Dr. Barbie vet doll, Teacher Barbie doll, Barbie’s computer desk playset, and a ton of Barbie-related stocking stuffers and candy. I had also found a set of The Three Stooges cartoons on DVD, and one of those electric swirly thingy lamps in blue (her fav color!).
The topper was the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire game for PC. She’s halfway through the game already.
That’s my girl …
My folks gave her a huge lapdesk easel, a nice art box full of colored pens, pencils, markers, crayons, etc., some sketch pads, and a ton of candy. My grandmother sent her a huge 4 ft teddy bear, and my other grandmother sent her some dolls, a cute tshirt, and some candy.
Jim got sweaters and shirts from pretty much everyone, including me. I also gave him several Dragonball Z collectibles that he’d been drooling over.
He gave me a Harley Quinn Barbie doll that I had been eyeing. (Isn’t she PRECIOUS!?) She’s always been my fav ‘bad guy’. :D
I also got a plush foot massager with teddy bear heads where the feet go, it’s so cute. hehehe
He also gave me a Rainbow Mothra collectible. I want that Burning Godzilla next!!! :twisted:
Jessie gave me some lavender bath stuff. (my fav!)
My family actually gave me what I asked for this year: gift cards. LOL
Seriously, I asked my mother NOT to buy me any clothing. My brother gave me a really pretty sweater — dark red, another fave. My mom also gave me a really pretty Alabama sweater, which I had been needing, and some crimson Alabama slippers. They’re plush and UBERcomfy. :mrgreen:
The biggest gift card I wanted was to Books-a-Million, so guess where I’ll be this weekend … that’s right, getting my geek on. :D
Tonight Jim and I are supposed to go out with some buddies to celebrate his birthday (31st), but I’m not so sure right now I’ll make it. My throat has been killing me since yesterday, and I’ve had that tickley “sick feeling” all morning. I was up with Jessie at 5am, and I’m about to go back to bed … think I’ll take some NyQuil and see if I can sleep some of this crud off.
