day seven

It's late Friday night here in California. It's the day after Christmas and I spent most of the day with my brother and sister and their families. It's so wonderful to spend time with my siblings, their spouses, and their children. And I love watching the six cousins play and interact with each other. I sure wish we all lived closer to each other.

I know it's late Friday, but it's still Friday and I can still do Aloha Friday. So here's what I want to know....

Tell me something you received for Christmas.

I received a blanket with the logo of Danielle's school on it, from who else... Danielle. And I received a pair of pajama bottoms with the logo from Jake's school on it, from who else.... Jake. I love and will cherish them both.

I had three very nice Christmas celebrations. One at home before we left with our immediate family and Jake's girlfriend, Hollee. The second one was with Don's family. And the third one with my family. I hope everyone had a wonderful day(s) of celebration.

One gift that I really like that I received is a pretty pair of pink silk pajamas.

I received a cool little bluetooth earpiece for my phone so that I can drive and talk at the same time. However, it is SO little that I have no idea where it is right now!!! Happy New Year!

I got a new super fancy camera and super fancy Adobe Photoshop to go with it.

It's so fun to see everyone and catch up!! It's great that you can enjoy that time with your family! I got some really soft pajamas and a really soft blanket to use on the couch from my kids. Those are my favorite gifts!

Hubby and I did not exchange Chanukah gifts this year. We are hoping to do our first family vacation with our kids this summer. My parents bought us a digital photo frame which is really nice :)

A cuddly soft "Lambie" blanket from my nephew. I love it, but I'm afraid the puppy might chew a hole in it, so I hanen't put it on the bed yet!

I received books and a gift card for more books and a ceiling fan for my bedroom (I need a fan going when I sleep as it helps with those pesky hot flashes) and pictures of my grand kids. All wonderful gifts!
