It was definitely a fun Christmas, and very busy and chaotic. But then, that's nothing new around here, so I expected it. I'll give a short list of some of the stuff I got so I don't crowd up friends lists too much. There's so much garbage here in the form of wrapping paper, tape, and boxes! Three more days till garbage day!

Small statue of Artemis. Woo!
Snowman pillow and tapestry throw
Stuffed snowman
Snowman mug set with hot cocoa mix and marshmallows
A bajillion other snowmen
Book on Egyptian gods and goddesses (the exact one Becky bought in Denver on her last trip. ::grins::)
Several other books
Breyer unicorn figure
Winged horses galore
Wolves galore
Several CDs, including Tim McGraw's latest (yum)
Framed picture of the Greek goddess Iris. Very nice. By Josephine Wall
Beautiful porcelain doll
Lighted house decoration
"Libris Mortis" for D&D
Vampire: the Requiem Storyteller's Screen. Very cool.
Apples to Apples
Homemade fruitcake (I love fruitcake, sue me!)
Old style ship's compass
Several tee shirts, including a cool grandma one
Drawing of a wolf done by my favourite graffiti artist
Illuminated Virgo lamp that flashes different colours
Trip to the coast for this coming summer. Mwa!
A sweatshirt that says "Talk to the Hand." ::grins:: That's an inside joke that has to do with John
Set of toy Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer stuff. House, figures, etc. It's so cute!
Spy kit! Fear me!
A box of beef jerky (yum). John loves cows, Mikel gave me the beef jerky. Use your imagination as to why.
Another set for my series of Native Peoples books
Foot massager (sometimes it even gets turned off)
A really nice photo album
Collage frame

Okay, I'll stop now. Except for this, for it is worth separate mention. ::Grins:: From Bree, I got a really cool staff. Two years ago, she got me a crown. A DM's crown, which is an inside joke regarding an old player (Jessica) who always accused me and Becky of putting on a DM's crown and overruling her all the time. Well, now I have a staff to go with it! I can use it on unruly players. Mwa!

Here it is, the day after Christmas, and I'm still tired from everything yesterday. I think it's going to take another day or two to recover. But hey, it was a great Christmas, so I'm not complaining. It made me realize how lucky I am.

I don't think the house has ever been as full as it was yesterday. Jesse's parents and sister made a surprise appearance, which was cool, and Cheyenne's dad showed up Christmas Eve and will be leaving after the first of the year. I'd never met him before, and I'm glad I did. He's a super guy, and seems so damn sweet. He made sure to bring a few things for the whole group, so he certainly endeared himself to many hearts.

Randy and Peter's parents were here as well, which was expected, and Laura's mother and stepdad as well as the siblings on that side showed for a few hours. So there were lots of families at least somewhat reunited for the day. It was really neat. And of course, my mom was here as well. It hadn't snowed or anything, so she was able to drive over.

Mikel did get Cult the laptop, and we've been working on teaching him how to use it. I talked to him for a little while about how he can write whatever he wants on there and that it might make him feel a little better to write some things out. He's unsure, but said he'd think about it. I got him a couple more PS2 and computer games as well as some clothes that he really needed. Black, of course. I don't think I've ever seen him wear anything else, except for blue jeans. He got a bunch of other stuff as well, which he seemed somewhat overwhelmed about, even though it's happened before. It's so hard for him to comprehend all of this. He actually ate quite a bit though, which is a good sign. He's only been pecking at his food lately. I really wanted to see him eat a nice big meal. I also passed on the Christmas greetings from those on here who sent them, and he stared at me a bit before shaking his head and muttering something about telling you thanks. He's still bewildered about it, but I think he's starting to get slightly curious about the people he doesn't know who wish him well.

Let's see. I'd write out everything I got, but it would take far too much room on here and too much time. I will pass on some, though.

1. Bunches of snowmen. Lots and lots. Woo! This includes figures, a cool serving set from my mom, stuffed ones from John and Jason, etc.
2. Bunches of wolf things (figured, pictures, etc.) from my extended family. I need a new house just to store all of my wolf stuff.
3. The Mage Tarot Deck
4. Stuffed penguin
5. Book on Celtic Mythology
6. 128 MB Jump Drive
7. Ruben Studdard CD
8. Sweater with a snowman and a penguin. Double cool!
9. Sweatshirt with a cool picture of a galleon on it.
10. Snowglobe with a rotating top so you can have the actual snowman globe on top or a penguin lying down.
11. Quite a few other pieces of clothing.
12. Langston Hughes Collected Poems
13. Candles
14. More books

Hmm. That was fun. I just leaned forward in my computer chair to push back a snowman near the edge on my desktop, and it slid out from under me. Ow. My hip now hurts. I think that's a sign to stop the list. Maybe I'll add to it later.

Oh, I do want to mention that Bree was thrilled with her present from Vernon, which Mikel helped him pick out. Ahem. He got her a lavendar sweatshirt with a kitten on it that said "Just Call Me Muffin." ::snickers:: Vernon insisted she wear it because he got it for her. The look on her face was precious. She shot Mikel the dirtiest look, but put the sweatshirt on. I think it's only fair, considering what she got Mikel. Mwa!

I think that's all for now. I think I need to lie down in a bit. Dumb chair.
