Some of Our Loot from Christmas Day

Posted on December 28, 2008 by under Family.    

I got all of these goodies in my stocking…
Christmas 2008 011
Brian got a smaller box of Choxies, which we ate already. =P

A gift from cousin Tracy…

Christmas 2008 012
It’s a 7-pc whiskey decanter set… I know who will be using this one!
Thank you, cousin Tracy!

Donna got me this beautiful necklace from LuCinda’s…
Christmas 2008 022
Incidentally, Jenni got me a $30 gift certificate to LuCinda’s. I used it to get the matching earings. Now I just need an occasion to wear my new jewelry. 😉

I got some clothes…
Christmas 2008 040
I got this one and a carnation pink shawl collar sweater that I wore to dinner the other night. Both will be great to wear at work while the weather is chilly. I also got a turtleneck, a v-neck, and a workout zip-jacket.

Brian and I got a complete bed set…
Christmas 2008 048
This will be perfect in the chocolate room!

Grandpa Clark gave me something truly special…
Christmas 2008 073
This framed handkerchief is something truly special and significant. Grandpa was stationed in Leyte and other islands in the Visayan region during World War II. Some of the local women, who could very well have been my ancestors, made handkerchiefs and tablecloths from used Japanese parachutes. Grandpa purchased some for his mother and his sister. This one that they framed and gave to me had belonged to his late mother.

I got a flat wallet…
Christmas 2008 107
I have always wanted one of these. Now I finally have one! I mistakenly referred to the material as snake skin when my mother-in-law Donna quickly corrected me and told me that the people at the store said it is eel skin. “Oh,” I said, “because snake skin would be soo 80s! This is 2008. Eel skin is in and snake is out.” LOL.

These are just some of the things we got. Mom and Dad B went nuts as usual. We got a bunch of other stuff ~ almost everything on our Christmas lists. They are way too generous to us. Thank you, Mom and Dad B!

Anyway, I will let Brian blog about his own loot. =P
