… and a Happy New Year!
Ah…. Christmas came and went and it was a decent day for me We ended up having to get up super early, 6AM, to start the ham as it needed to be slow-cooked for 8 hours and we had planned on eating at 2PM. After John started the ham, I made breakfast, which was cinnamon rolls and they were decent. We opened our presents with our friend Nate who had spent the night and was staying all day with us. Got some great gifts!
I was really surprised with what John’s mom got me! It was the Nikon camera! John and I have both been out of a camera (other than the crappy ones on our phones) for months! So, this was definitely a nice gift and I’m really glad we have a camera now! :yay: The other two gifts in the pictures were from John. The one is a figurine from Beauty and the Beast. When we were shopping for our parents, we had seen some of the Disney princesses figurines at the store and I had said how it would be cool to get a collection of all of them. I guess he decided I should start collecting now! :D He also got me the set of all three of the Twilight Saga games. I was a little angry at this cuz I had told him I didn’t want to get any of the Twilight games until all the movies were out so I could have all the games at once, but apparently he had bought it before I had said anything about it lol Nate also had gotten me the first 4 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy! That made me pretty excited too! :D
We had a lot of success with making Christmas dinner and the desserts. John made some cookies, I made some fudge for the first time and tried again to make chocolate creme pie. My pie set, but not completely…. it was more like chocolate pudding pie I’m getting closer though! It’s one of my favorite desserts and I won’t stop til I can get the recipe right! haha The recipes for the fudge and the cookies I put up on the recipes page for anyone who’d like to try them out!!!
I did feel a little nauseous earlier in the day, after we had had breakfast I took a nap as I was really tired and when I woke up I felt even worse! Luckily I made it though the day and today we got up early to see my family on the webcam. Well, Yahoo! Messenger wasn’t liking us to use the video call, so we just used the webcam and a cell phone :wink: Then John went to Boston’s to watch the Packer game, and I went back to sleep…. for four hours! It was nice though, and I’m still a little sleepy but I’m hoping that that helped catch me up on my sleep and tomorrow will be back to normal. I found out the gym on post has a pool so I’m planning on swimming tomorrow while John works out… They say swimming is one of the best work-outs for the pregnant ladies as the water takes all your weight! :D Hopefully I can still fit in my bathing suit!
How was your Christmas? Did you get any good presents?
