Day 40 – January 18, 2011

Since it’s already the 19th for you… Happy 8 month anniversary 🙂 ♥ ♥

Today it was the first day back in the office in just over a week. It was hard to get out of bed, but your email put a big smile on your face… it was like you were a kid on Xmas morning opening presents. So cute! Charles cute 😉

Work was alright.. I had a lot of work to do. After work, I tried a new class at the gym, Slash, which was tough. Luckily, the class was only 45 minutes long. After the gym, I went to Michael’s to pick up some stuffs. Lookie what I found!!

Just the right size!

I didn’t get it though… but it sure was purdy!!

After Michael’s, I went home and made some dinner…

Homemade burgers and fries 😀

Yeah I don’t know what was up with the bump in the middle… but it was delicious! Eddie really liked it too. I know it’s crazy but I’m thinking of making the cats homemade cat food.. they’ve grown tired of the canned food. Eddie won’t have a problem, but Dusty will need to be migrated gradually. I’ll let you know what I decide on that.

Time for some zzzz’s…

Day 16 – December 25, 2010

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!

A few snowflakes, some reindeer, and little cookies

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??

It’s true!!

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!!

Cookies for A!

Shortly thereafter, A arrived and we sat down for Christmas dinner

Awww D + A

The family (minus B of course)

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!!

Such well-behaved kids.. we were taking turns {and yes, my sister is sporting a snuggie!}

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.

B on speakerphone.. that snuggie sure came in handy!

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!!

So warm and toasty!

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!

Day 9 – December 18, 2010

Since it’s technically the 19th right now.. Happy 7 month anniversary 🙂
As you know, I started frosting cookies this morning and finally made it to my cousin’s around 4pm.

cookies

I brought a plate of these for each - MF & AF. There were chocolate chip cookies under the decorated cookies

Before I left my place, MF called me to ask me to bring some dressy clothes because we were going to go to CO’s work’s Xmas dinner.

We went to CO's work's Xmas Dinner

MF & CG

MF and me 🙂

After dinner, they had a sports improv team come in and do some improv stuff for a while..

Sports Improv

Sports Improv - they were really good!

Then we had a table While Elephant gift exchange. Instead of each person picking out a present, a representative from a table went up to the tree to pick out a present. The lady at our table stole a blanket from someone, and then the blanket was stolen from her. So she got a Snuggie, then it was taken from her, and she did end up getting it back. Then when it was over, we had to look under our chair; the person w/the sticker under their chair would win the table’s present. So our representative had the sticker and got to keep the snuggie (so rigged!! lol)

Snuggie winner!

Snuggie winner!

We came home and chatted for a bit w/MF’s friend and now I’m going to sleep cuz I’m super tired!
