Four Christmases

It's been such a busy week, we finally have some downtime today to clean, grocery shop, do the laundry, etc. I'm so glad!

Last Tuesday after work we headed to the in-laws because they are starting to move things into their new house. So we did that for hours! It was kind of fun, but there was a lot of stuff. 

Then Wednesday was Christmas Eve. Brandon's car is in the shop, so he has been driving mine. I guess it started shaking and driving weird on this day. It ended up being the spark plugs and coils (it was misfiring), which we fixed on Friday. But because of that, we had no car. So Brandon's dad came and picked us up and brought us to their house. We helped move a couple things, but we had to be at his grandparents house by 5, so we didn't get much done. We had dinner and hung out with his relatives (hm, kinda boring...), and then went back to his parents house and moved a bit more. Then we opened presents and chatted and had some fun!

Thursday was Christmas. Brandon and I woke up early (even though I didn't want to! haha), and opened our presents. I got him the first five Harry Potter books in hardcover, an RC Mustang, some clothes, a Michael Crichton book, a cocktail set and a cd case. He got me this computer!! I got the MacBook that I've been wanting for months. He's so perfect. :)

Then we headed to my mom's house for Christmas dinner. We brought our Rock Band game and played that for a long time! The funniest part of the night was when Jenny's boyfriend Dave took a percoset and was only eating green foods in "powers of three." It's hard to describe, it was hilarious. We opened presents before dinner. We got some great stuff! The best stuff was the kitchen things we got that we needed.

Friday we fixed my car and then went to the mall with Jessica, Jenny and my mom. We dropped the car off to get an oil change too. The mall was fun, we mostly just walked around. When the car was done a couple hours later, we drove to Monument and picked Jessica up because she was going to spend the night. That night we watched I Am Legend and Juno, and played Rock Band.

Saturday we played more games before going to my dad's for the last Christmas dinner. There we had stir fry, had some cheese appetizers, and played Trivial Pursuit. My dad and stepmom got drunk, as usual, which is kind of uncomfortable. But what can you do? Dave was at this dinner too, the first time he met my dad. What a great impression he got, I bet!

And now it's Sunday. I need to update this blog more so I'm not playing catch-up constantly.
