12 Days of Christmas 2009!
We're leaving today to go to family's house so I opened the rest of my gifts. I haven't had time to take and post photos but I will do that when we get back.
I cried. Missmoppet found me an entire set of the Laura Ingalls Wilder books. I have been slowly losing my childhood set as they've been falling apart. LIW has been my idol since childhood and now I have a new set of the books. I seriously started tearing up when I opened the package. You have been such a thoughtful partner, missmoppet. Thank you so much for an awesome Christmas.
OMG KICK A$$. An amazing Poppet!!!!!! I love her! She's so cute with purple hair and a flower around her eye and omg she looks so much like the one on my wists. And also the most awesome purse! It's a denim bag with a tattoo swallow on it. I LOVE THIS BAG!
3 really warm crochet hats. These will help keep us warm in the cold Flagstaff winter. I especially love the blue and white one.
Wists. I got 2 really awesome canvas art pieces for my house. One is a really cool celtic design, and the other is a reproduction of a design I had on my wists! I can't wait to hang them up. I also got a picture frame/shadow box with little old keys inside it. I love old keys and anything made with them. And in addition, a DVD of Little House on the Prairie. I love Laura Ingalls Wilder!
Star Wars. I don't know how she did it, but she found 5 really awesome Star Wars figurines. They're about 9 inches high (maybe a bit taller). We got Palpatine, Vader, Chewwy, C-3PO, and Greedo (omg awesome). Husband has decided our Star Wars family is going to live above his computer and has set about to install a shelf just for them. Wow what a great day!
Brain Slug Hat!!! A green crocheted hat like a brain slug from Futurama! And also, shot glasses! I collect shot glasses so this is so awesome for me. My favorite is one that says "Don't Bother Me, I'm Crabby" and has a bunch of little crabs all over it. SO CUTE.
Sewing! Missmoppet sent me 7 packs of patterns, including some really cool dog bed patterns and adorable stuffed animals.

Family Entertainment. 2 DVDs (King of Queens, Dodgeball), some books (one of which is a Laura Ingalls type book!!!), some playing cards, and a cute metal playing card case (omg I didn't know they even made these) with a dragon on the front.
Today was a yummy day. I got a whole bunch of cookie cutters, an awesome chocolate baking book from Hershey's, and an apron with pink polka dots. The best part is that the apron actually fits/covers me (i'm fat) and I'm so stoked to wear it this weekend while I bake X-mas cookies! Oh, and the husband took one look at the cookbook and said "Get in the kitchen, I'll do all the other chores." LOL.
Sadly part of Day 10 didn't make the journey. There seemed to be these cute plastic tiki head cups but they were in pieces.
BUT I got really cute bunny slippers (soo good b/c it's cold here) and a really pretty zippered bag, another crochet bag which will come in handy as a WIP bag for knitting, and some more little office supplies. I really love the pouch, the fabric choice is perfect for me. Not sure what I'm going to use it for, I have so many ideas. I might just use it as a wrist purse. Thanks missmoppet!
Office stuff! Cool crafty pirate tote bag, and a whole bunch of things like pens and a mini calculator and OMG alligator clippie magnets!!!!
This little guy gets me every time I see him. I love it!
Can't wait to take this stuff to my office... make it a little more fun! Thanks so much partner!
Day 12:(pardon the messy desk)
A very cute light green crocheted bag with a ton of candy. Candy is always a huge hit in my house, and I love the little bag. It's the perfect size for toting my breakfast (bagel, banana, string cheese, and drink) to work. I was wanting something to tote it in, since we recycle our grocery bags for another, less tasty purpose (dogs). Thank you missmoppet!.
