II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

going fast---getting nowhere

I've had one of those days. The kind where you feel like you're moving in slow motion even though your head is RACING. I can list off a zillion things I need to do..and yet I can't seem to get my body moving. I JUST got out of the shower and it's 3:00 pm. Well, technically I probably got out of the shower an hour ago..but after I got semi-dressed, I leaned over the bed and fell asleep. Half standing, half laying! I kept waking up every few minutes thinking, "oh ya and I need to do that and this and that" and then I'd fall back asleep. Who knows how long I did that before I finally got up and got dressed. Anyway, now I am up and what am I doing? Blogging. Of all the things...this was NOT on my to-do list. But, don't I deserve a little indulgence? A few minutes of guilty pleasure?
So anyway, I thought I'd tell you all what I got for Christmas. I have to warn you first though...I was ridiculously spoiled. Like, embarrasingly spoiled. My mom and my husband....I can't help it...they did it.
So here goes:

From my mom and dad: A pair of Lucky jeans, a whole set of Apple Bath & Body Works products, Clinique Dramatically Different moisturizing gel, nice slippers.

From my hubby: A Kitchen Aid Stand Up Mixer, BONGO perfume, a Fossil Watch, VS undies, fuzzy hot-pink Slippers, Thinsulate velvety gloves, a neck massager with heat, a hat from AE, socks.

From my Grandma: Thirty dollars.

From Matt's grandma: Fifty dollars in my stocking with lots of fun goodies like nail polish, tissues, lip gloss and a Blockbuster gift card.

From my MIL: A brown leather jacket!

From various other people: A pretty scrolly iron wall thing, earrings, 2 more pairs of slippers, a Seacret nail kit thing that I LOVE, books, recipe books, set of dessert plates, CD's and probably more but that's all I can think of right now!

I made out pretty good, huh? :o)

I told Matt I feel like I way under-did it for him or else he way over-did it for me. I probably spent a third of what he spent!

Here's what I got him: Enduraskin pants (to keep you warm in cold weather), Nike work out pants, cologne, Nike hat, 300 (the dvd), a compass for hunting, an extra seat/storage thing for his 4-wheeler and that's all I can think of right now. Man...now I really feel bad. That doesn't sound like very much.

oh well..that's not what it's about right?
Anyhow, the kids made out good too. I think they both got every single thing they wanted and lots more.

So, if you haven't posted it already, I wanna hear what you all got!!!

Wow Jen - niiiice gifts :)

The hubby and I went to see Jersey Boys and stay downtown overnight as our gift to each other - LOVED every minute of it! From my parents we got a gift certificate to a Japanese hibachi-style restaurant. Mani/pedi gift certificate, a purse, iTunes gift cards and Trivial Pursuit - 80's edition. Grandpa just gives money as do the inlaws. My one SIL got me some lotions and body spray and my BIL/SIL came over and brought us a fresh plate of cookies, a bottle of Christmas wine, and a gift certificate for a wine tasting. We love to eat/drink so those kinds of things are always well-received. Glad you had a good Christmas too!!!!!

It's not all about the "amount", it's about the heart. So I don't think you need to count. Just feel blessed as you do.

Congratulations! You got some great stuff for Christmas. Just by the list and who all gave you gifts, I can see how much you are blessed/loved. That alone makes a wonderful Christmas! We are so spoiled to have such wonderful, close-knit families. :) Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
