Eliannah wanted little princesses again. So Santa brought her a Mermaid set, a littlest pet shop "fairy" (which looked more like an alien to me.) and a Fur Real Cat. We gave her a lot of Barbie accessories to go with it.
MiKaylah LOVES dogs and Cats. So we got her a Fur Real Puppy. She also got a lot of clothes. Most kids don't want clothes for their gifts but she is very particular about her clothing and what she will and will not wear. She doesn't just want a dress every day, she wants THE dress every day. So she got a lot of skirts that match her specified style. She likes the real ruffle-layered tutu type of skirts. I also got one that was really lacy and gorgeous!
I happened to not be able to sleep on Black Friday so I got up at 4 an went out to the sales. I got great great deals and I was really happy about it. I got a Cricket door buster and a Blu-ray player and a wii for all under $250. The part that was funniest to me was that I had no intention of going before I went to bed on Thanksgiving night. The cricket was of course for me and I didn't wrap it. In fact I didn't even feel like opening the box for months after Christmas. But the wii and all the games I bought to go with it were a great surprise for Michael and he didn't suspect a thing. He knew that I had gotten him something and we teased each other about it for all of December, but he didn't know what it was.
He got me a vacuum that you can strap to your back and has an extra long extension chord. Don't get offended for me, its what I asked for. lol. I was so excited about it I got it out and used it that day. I was able to vacuum one whole floor and then up the stairs and into the living room without once having to unplug and move to another outlet. Isn't that awesome!?!?!
Lina, Mike's sister, called us that morning to wish us a Meerry Christmas. It was so nice! She told me all about her Christmas and asked about ours. I really appreciated that. It was nice to talk to her.
