What happens when you take an exotic vacation and get a fancy new car all within 3 months of each other?
Your husband gives you Art Illuminations for Christmas!
Not familiar with Art Illuminations? Art Illuminations are these
Giving me the gift of Art Illuminations was actually a good move on Erik's part. There have been too many Christmases in the past when I would be forced to smile through clenched teeth, "You spent how much money on what??" At least Art Illuminations was only $15 and he saved the receipt so that I could return it yesterday. He thought he was so funny.
Besides that lovely gift, Christmas was a blast.
Luke dressed up like a funky shepherd and actually kind of participated in this year's annual Nativity Re-enactment on Christmas Eve.
On Christmas Day we played The Beatles Rock Band all day long. I thought we would get sick of it, but we never did.
Then, so that we wouldn't feel like total losers, we pulled ourselves away from the Wii and went down to the pier to watch the sunset. Charlie held Gramps' hand almost the entire time and walked the whole thing.
I held on to Luke's hand for dear life because I have this fear of him jumping off the pier. He tried a few times, but failed, fortunately.
