As I awake today from a sugar and turkey induced food coma for the second time (the first time it was to scream puke at 330am), I sit here trying to recall what gifts my sleepy eyes opened yesterday during the 5 hour opening bonanza.
More important than the good ones are the ones I will actually remember, the bad ones!
When pressured to produce a list for my mother, I gave her two items. A magazine subscription, who could mess that up, and ol’ fashion apothecary jar. I thought I could fill it with jelly belly’s and call it a day. What I thought would be a fairly easy gift find somehow turned sour along the way.
Here is what I had in mind.
My mother, as sweet as she is, researched the them the internet and scoured the stores high and low.
Here is what I ended up with…
Not quite what I was looking for, bless her heart!
So what other items hit a ‘home run’ this Christmas?
First up we needed something to open all the gifts, luckily in my stocking Santa had packed me a Safe Cut package opener, unfortunately it was packaged so well I couldn’t even get it out to use it.
Moving on, we opened a great gift my 1-year-old nephew was given, A remote control truck.
I love the long cord that can also be functioned into a permanent sleeping aid.
Up next one of the loudest toys in the house, given to my niece, who is also considerably louder than the toy itself, the CD PAYER (not a typo).
By 745am I had an irreversible headache.
As things calmed down I had time to collect a few of the Barbie‘s and spend some downtime brushing out their waxy hair, I was quite shocked to find heavy makeup and lip liner where back in vogue.
Of course when my nausea settles today I will be trying this look on my niece.
Many more gifts poured in, none of which I can remeber, but what I most importantly will not forget is the time I got to spend with my family.
But I still want to know what was your worst and best gift this Christmas! I need to know I wasn’t the only one!
