Merry First Christmas!

Nick and I celebrated Christmas this morning!  I am going to be leaving this Thursday for California, and then I will come back and Nick and I will go straight to North Carolina, and I wanted us to be able to open our Christmas presents together in the morning, so today was the only day!
So we had "Express Christmas."  Did anyone see the Modern Family Christmas episode this week?   Nick and I were literally rolling on the floor laughing so hard, it is the greatest show ever.

Ok, so on to the presents!
My big gift was....
A digital camera! and not just any digital camera, it was the Sony HX9, with 1080p full HD video and pictures, 16.2 megapixels, and a bunch of other cool junk.  I have kinda shaky hands, and when I was testing it out in the store, all my pictures still turned out perfectly! So cool!  I don't exactly have it yet, but it is shipping, and should be here on Tuesday.  Look forward to wayyy cooler looking blog photos in the future.














Cool right?  I'm so excited!  I also got a Victoria's Secret Hoodie, which I've wanted for like 10 years, so that is convenient, and See's Candies, Ande's Mints, Lindor Truffles, and socks.  We also opened the box my sister Erin sent, and she gave me a cute sweatshirt, shirt, and a scarf! Thank you Erin!!!


Nick got a year subscription to X-box live and the video game "Skyrim" which I asked for at the video game store and asked for "skyroom." I told the cashier there that hopefully he would be done with it in 3 days, and he told me emphatically that he has put over 80 hours into it already and its the coolest, longest game, so then I told him he'd better stop telling me how long it was or I wasn't going to buy it haha.  Then he assured me that it would be over in 3 days.... hmm..  I guess I'd just rather be ignorant...
Nick also got a couple of coats, ties, underarmor socks (for 35 dollars! what is the world coming to!)  and a few other small things.  

Kitty didn't get anything, although my mom did get him some awesome things since his birth, including lazer pointer, catnip and scratching post, and other toys.  Plus, he gets food, water, and sweet lovin' every day from me, so I don't see what he's so glum about.  Maybe the fact that we tore down his new-found fort under the Christmas Tree when we opened all of our presents? Oh well.  

Merry Christmas everyone! Do you know what you are getting yet?
Love, Katie

We were cracking up on that one too. Can't wait to see your camera! And take a million pictures together of things like my left foot! And half the couch, half the floor!

Haha! My hubby wanted skyrim also. Definitely not a 3 day game. He's good about taking time away to play with us though.:) So glad you got time to have "Christmas" with just the two of you.
