Just an update on everything I've gottne (so far) for Christmas! Mostly so I don't forget.
Dad and Sue got me the two major things on my list:
-Geek Squad Flash Drive with Virus Protection (same as Jenna's) We're trying to make it work right now because I'm not running XP so it's different.
-3.1 Megapixel Digital Camera with 1.5" preview screen. I don't have the right batteries yet so I can't play with it. *sniff*
-A $50 check which unfortunately will have to go towards the Choir trip that I would rather skip but can't.
-My Dad got me these really soft black pants too. They have a cool white sash and rhinestones on the pockets. Very nice.
My old Neighbor Kim:
-A set of beautiful bracelets you can wear seperate or together (I wear them together) with different charms and purle and amber beads.
Various other realtives (mostly on Sue's side) I can't always remember who gave me what...
-Amy, Bruce, Joe, Jackson Iseneker got me the new Avril Lavigne CD and a certificate to order another of my choice online.
-Grandma Judy and Grandpa Chuck got me a cute green outfit that I wore yesterday.
-In my stocking there was various candies including Strawberry Hello Panda and Yan-yan as well as a crystal purse figurine, a white poofy scrubby thing for my face, a pocket calendar since I lost mine and a candy cane pen.
-My new sister Cami made a bunch of herbal things. She might open a shop soon. I got lip gloss, and soap as well as a "coupon" to come down and help her make my own personalized line of facial products and such.
-From Donna, Nadar, Tony, Sierra Bokai I got a beautiful red chinese lantern.
-From Cami all the women got an ornament (it's a tradition) and I got a pretty green angel that says reflection.
-From the gag gift game I actually ended up with bungy cords but Bruce traded a cute soap dish, lotion dispenser set for it. (I also had to get him some punch and a piece of Kringla, lol)
-I stole some pretty oriental wrapping paper off of Luke's Christmas gift to use in pictures eventually.
-I think it was G-ma and G-pa but I'm not sure...I got Trickster's Choice by Tamora Pierce.
-From Cami again I got a big bag of Sesame candy. It was a different taste but it grows on you.
-From Adam I got a cute snowman ornament that says I Love You
-In my stocking there was a little bottle of warm vanilla sugar body wash and some chocolates.
-A $25 Hy-Vee card (for gas)
-A $25 JcPenneys card
Yeah...that was all from her. I realized that she was pissed but this is just mean. And it's not that I didn't get much, I'm fine with that. It's just that she so blatantly didn't care. I'm guessing she ran out and grabbed a couple things when she realized I was going to be there. (She didn't expect me to come) And she always hated getting giftcards because they were too impersonal...I guess you get the picture. Oh yeah, I did get one other thing...three more boxes of my stuff and the knowledge that my Grand Champions (horses I've collected for about ten years) had dissapeared and she wasn't giving them back. Nice, huh? I had stayed Christmas Eve Night there but I left as soon as they went to brunch with Gary's family the next morning because I couldn't stand it anymore. I had figured it would be this way but geez!
Anyway, other then that I had a really nice Christmas. When I came back to Dad's Christmas morning I cried on Cami and Suzy's shoulders for a while becasue it upset me so much and then we ate a nice homemade breakfast of french toast and bacon and hung out and played poker. I wish Cami and Greg hadn't had to leave already, we're going to try and go visit them sometime during break. Then we went to G-Pa, Gma's in Charles City and had a nice dinner, played cards, etc. We even got to go on a sleigh ride and I gto to drive the draft horses! It was harder then it looked but still pretty cool. So the good kinda outweighed the bad. And I still have the Canadian Christmas tomorrow! I feel like taking quizzes so I might post some later. Until then, Merry Christmas!
