Thanks to Serena and her trusty camera, we have photos! Here are those Christmas sugar cookies that I helped The Girl bake and she kicked me out of the kitchen so she could decorate all by herself:
And here she is posing with her Twilight goodies:
She had a wonderful day, until evening rolled around. She didn't want to eat dinner and complained that she had a tummy ache. She ended up with a 102 fever, and I laid with her on the couch and rubbed her back until she fell asleep...which was not until the wee hours of the morning. Thankfully, she woke up feeling much better...but today I was the sick one. I'm coming down with some kind of cold, and if I could only breathe, then things would be great.
Anyway...We welcomed a ton of new DVDs into our home, and I spent nearly all day curled on the couch sniffling and watching movies. The Girl and I gave Jerry all 6 of the Harry Potter movies, and we watched The Sorcerer's Stone. Then we watched Inkheart, which Serena and Cris gave to The Girl along with Coraline. This evening, Jerry and I watched Inglourious Basterds, which was one of his gifts to me. Serena and Cris gave me three other WWII movies, which I can't wait to watch: Defiance, Miracle at St. Anna, and Valkyrie, which we saw together in the theater. (Thanks, guys!)
Oops...just realized it's after midnight and I probably should get some sleep. So tell me, did Santa get you everything you asked for? Spending the day with people I love was all I wanted, and everything else was icing on the cake.
