Our Christmas

With all of the Holiday craziness, we decided to celebrate our Christmas together last night.  We are celebrating with my family on Sunday, and then it's off to MN to celebrate with MJ's family through the New Year.  We had a wonderfully relaxing evening - made a nice dinner and enjoyed some cocktails while opening presents.

Our stockings:

Opening presents:

MJ has been saying for a couple of months now that she wants a Kind.le.  So, I got her one for Christmas, but she never expected that I would get it for her.  Here she is getting ready to open it:

And here is the best face of surprise and excitement that I caught when she realized what was in that little brown box!

Here is the wonderful little device that MJ has had tons of fun playing with already!

And here I am opening a fun/surprise gift as well.

Now, there is a bit of a story that goes with this one - When I was a kid, I wanted a Snoopy Snow Cone Machine in the worst way.  I can remember asking for it from Santa for a number of years.  Well, for whatever reason I never got one.

Well, Santa finally delivered!

MJ also got me snowshoes (among other things) that I am really excited to try out!

We had a great evening - Next stop - celebrating with my family tomorrow!
