wedding-happy couple

Happy Solkwanzikahmas Day

Here we are on Christmas morning. Sitting on the couch after eating breakfast, each of us has a cat curled up next to us (mine, the boy, is purring so loudly I'm afraid he'll wake the whole neigbourhood). I look around and smile because this is my family.

On friday I got out of work early and we went to eastern mass to visit the in-laws. The presents we got for people went over really well and we got this nifty Cocomotion, a hot-chocoate maker from his niece and nephew.

Then we came home and opened presents with Artemis. She gave us these really amazing scarves that she made and some other cool small things. I gave aerith Serenity DVD (but i put it in a huge box *grin*) and he bought me a wireless router (thus I can be online while downstairs...hurray!). We decided to do presents then because that's when our family was there and as we don't really celebrate xmas, but feel more that the season should be a time for family, that's what felt right.

yesterday I made Diablo 2 shrine cookies. Now i have to make icing so i can ice them for this contest (i have until 3pm to enter...i can do this)
