Thursday Thirteen #26 - Things our family received for Christmas

Thirteen things that our family received for Christmas:
  1. Visit from Grandma. The kids had fun snuggling with Grandma in the mornings instead of bothering their poor parents.
  2. Chinese Hot Pot dinner with meatballs, tofu meatballs, squid balls (actually quite tasty), fish, shrimp, pork, dumplings, soybeans, spinach, zucchini, potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, and noodles. Everyone was well fed.
  3. White Christmas. With all the snow in the past few weeks, we had tons left for a white Christmas. Grandma had fun making snowmen with the kids.
  4. Super Mario Galaxy for the Wii. Adam played this for 5 hours straight on Christmas day and got up to level 3. It made me dizzy just looking at it.
  5. A makeup kit for Dova. This was the one thing that she asked from Santa and spent the day putting on lip glitter over lip gloss and 4 shades of eye shadow on. With mom's help of course.
  6. Nintendo DS Lite Gold with Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass for me. Only so that I can play Mario Kart with Adam wink . Not to mention that I am whizzing through Brain Age 2 and unlocked the Advanced Sudoku puzzles already. The Zelda game went to Adam which he loves. I just liked the gold color of this special edition.
  7. Racing tire gauge with bleeder valve for Doug. Who knew that you could spend $60 on a tire gauge?
  8. Lego chess set for Adam. Very cool indeed and he beat me in our first game.
  9. Bella Dancerella Disney Princess Dance Studio for Dova. She danced around with Bella and her magic wand and new princess dress-up clothes twice on Christmas.
  10. Mario doll for Adam. We found him sticking out of Adam's stocking on Christmas morning. The boy is totally Mario crazy.
  11. Skippyjon Jones Doll for Dova. This cute Siamese (or is it Chihuahua?) was found sticking out of Dova's stocking.
  12. Snap Circuits Jr. for Adam. No time like the present to learn about electricity for this budding scientist/engineer.
  13. An aquarium for Dova. Technically this was for her birthday today (December 26th - Happy 4th birthday Dova!!). We finally got some beautiful $.26 goldfish that have survived for 3 days so far.

I don't remember anything past the Chinese Hot Pot! Yummy! Yummy! Yummy! Yummy! sigh. Now that we are in Denver, we are hot pot free - it's so sad.

(That was me who deleted - I drooled so badly that I messed up my comment! :))

Happy TT!
