We got Jenni three t-shirts for Christmas. Two of them were decoys.

Her reaction to the real shirt was priceless.

She totally didn’t expect it. It was awesome!

I’m so glad that Jenni is a good sport. She found the shirt just as hilarious as I did.

Speaking of, I heard through the grapevine (I read it on their blog, actually) that they just got a PS3 to add to Logan’s collection of game systems. He already has a PS2, DSi, Wii and XBOX 360. When Brian found out, he got all excited because now they can be friends on the PS network.

“You should text Logan on his cellphone,” I told Brian. “He would love that. Actually, you should copy Jen C on that.” He is, after all, only ten. LOL.

Eli absolutely loved this nano bug thing. He was chasing it all over the basement.

I have the most well-behaved little nephews.

Eli playing with his Spider-man doodle board that he got earlier that night.

IMG_3655

The cool thing is that he sat with me and asked me to show him how to draw some stuff. It was very sweet. Everyone was upstairs, though, so no one saw it. :(

I usually ask Jen C what to get the boys for Christmas to make sure I get them something that they actually like. So we got the Bridge Battle Habitat Set for Logan and then some trucks for Eli (that’s what Jen C said he wanted). She said that Que didn’t care what he’d get because he is still too young, so Brian and I decided to go with something practical. We got him a Bundleme. It was a good call too because they were able to use it that very night.

Jen C sent us this picture yesterday. I’m so glad that we got it for them because it looks like they’re getting really good use out of it.

Fwd: New Message

We didn’t go nuts this year like in previous years. We mostly just focused on the kids and got a small gift for everyone else. We got Matt and Jen postage stamps with Que’s photo (Zazzle). I thought they would get a kick out of that.

We got a vest (Banana Republic) for dad to keep him warm while he’s out flying his RC planes and helis, a turtleneck sweater for mom (Ann Taylor), and a Netflix subscription for both of them so that they can take advantage of the Netflix feature on their new TV. Because it’s kind of pointless to have a TV capable of streaming Netflix, if you don’t have a subscription. LOL.

Brian helped dad set up Netflix on the TV so we got to use it that night. We watched National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and G-Force on instant watch. Logan was in the middle of Battle for Terra when Matthew said it was time to go. It was almost midnight and they still had to set out the cookies and milk for Santa.

Eli and Matthew checking Santa’s whereabouts.

It was getting late. The Cannadys had to go home in time to set out some milk and cookies for Santa Claus.

IMG_3673

Brian and I stuck around for a little while after the Cannadys left. We were the last ones to leave. I think it was almost 1 AM by the time we got home. What a night!

P.S. Thank you for our garment steamer, mom and dad. It’s perfect because Brian and I both hate pressing our clothes. We usually just take Brian’s shirts to the cleaners so they can launder and press them for us. That gets to be pretty expensive, though. We didn’t even think of garment steamers until we got one for Richard and Amy (it was on their wedding registry). Ever since then, we’ve wanted one for ourselves. Now we don’t have to buy one! Thank you!

    Hello!

    The BundleMe is FANTASTIC still. You know on texting Logan, well, he may have all these game systems but he’s not really…. ‘techie’. I have to force him to pay attention to his cell phone, force him to go into other components of the xBox 360 and now the PS3. I told Matt, if there was a game system where you just hit two rocks together and produced cool graphics, that’s all Logan would want. I’m trying to change that, though. Geeky is cool!
