Christmas Week Recap and RAK #4 Winner.

I didn’t get a chance to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas, but hope everyone enjoyed (and survived the craziness of) the holidays. Can you believe that Christmas is actually over, and we are headed into 2009? This past week… err month… err year… seems like a complete blur. It went by so fast that it’s hard to believe New Year’s Eve is less than a week away. Also, I wanted to thank everyone for the cards and gifts; everyone was so generous, and all the cards were amazingly beautiful!

For Christmas, I drove back home and spent it with my family. Maui thoroughly enjoyed all the attention from everyone, haha! She was totally pampered and basically got everything she wanted for Christmas. As for me, I’m really excited about all of the appliances and kitchenware that I received this year from friends and family! Just want I need… more cool crap to add to my house, haha! One of my favorite moments of this past week was playing Cranium Wow. We played it for at least three hours straight, and I swear we could not stop laughing! We will definitely have to play it again!  …and as promised, here are pictures from Christmas week. There are tons to share, so enjoy.

Wahoo! An early Christmas present... just for me!

"An early Christmas present... just for me!"

I got to open up a couple of early Christmas presents!
