Today, after waking up 😉 we decided to cut out the cookies. We started off with the snowflakes, and my sister, who is a little more impatient than I am, decided she was sick of snowflakes and wanted to do all the tiny cookie cutters!
After we baked them, we had to get ready for dinner and had to make more tamales. My sister helped for a bit, then she felt tired so she went to nap for a few hours. After the tamales, I had to finish the cookies for D’s boyfriend A. Oh and did you know I’m a heart surgeon??
A got both pairs of mitten cookies… last year’s Olympic mitten model (bigger) and this year’s model, except I flipped the colours and I didn’t add Canada to them.. but hey, at least they can’t sue me for copyright infringement!!
Shortly thereafter, A arrived and we sat down for Christmas dinner
As I mentioned to you before, we play Wii after dinner and during the Christmas break. Tonight was no exception except this time, it was A instead of my brother. We were taking turns playing “New Adventure Island” which is one of the Virtual Console games… we actually continued it from last year!!
The highlight of the evening was after we spent about an hour trying to pass 6-3, I finally did it… and then A & I had our turns on 6-4; we passed the remote to my sister and she goes “oh yay! you guys passed the castle!” and we saw that she’d reset it to 1-1. Oyyyy.
A left around 10pm and shortly thereafter, my brother called from my aunt’s house. We talked to him for a bit. It was quite loud in the background… my aunt’s family was there.
And while this was going on, Buster decided he was going to take a nap on my Macbook.. I didn’t let him do that so he chose the next best thing.. right next to my macbook. Our cats are Macs for life!!
I hope you had a good Christmas… we might go Boxing day shopping tomorrow morning so I better hit the sack.. after 3 more attempts at passing 3-4 of Adventure Island!
