Christmas #2 Recap

Our original plans for Christmas Eve were to join Michael's mom and her boyfriend for a fun filled evening at Austin Park N Pizza, but due to the weather, everyone went to Dave and Buster's instead.  I was kinda bummed since Michael's work schedule didn't allow us to attend that portion of the festivities, but it was probably a good thing as Billa is a little young for Dave and Buster's.  Michael was able to get off a couple of hours early and when he got home, we packed up the car and headed out.

We had a tasty dinner of ham, twice baked potatoes, monkey bread, deviled eggs, and creamed corn.  There was much fighting over the monkey bread, as it's everybody's favorite.  I must learn how to make it!  After dinner, we opened presents.  I was blown out of the water when I tore off the wrapping paper of a very large box and saw a KitchenAid stand mixer label staring back at me.  Seriously, I didn't believe it until I opened the box itself and gingerly touched my new baby.  It's soooo pretty and I am sooooo in love!

What's this?

Just like mama's!  We got the real Billa Cakes now!

Sybilla received a vanity set from her Gigi along with a cute pink mini mixer to match Mama's (although she totally broke it within twelve hours of receiving it...it is now a hand mixer as opposed to a stand mixer and only has one set of beaters!).  Michael's sister Caitlyn works at the Gap so everyone got something from there.  I got some awesome sweaters which I really needed (gotta love practical gifts!) and Michael got a nice cologne set.  Mmmm...smells like man!  She also got Sybilla some really cute clothes which included a brown little fleece sweat jacket which Billa wears all the time now.  Michelle gave us a date night complete with babysitting, which we will be using very soon.  he also got Riley the Beagle a dog sweater, which was cute but the poor guy looked so miserable in it!

We gave Michael's mom a photo calendar of Billa along with a locket that contained a black and white silhouette of Sybilla.  Michelle and Michael gave Carl both seasons of the Sarah Connor Chronicles which was one of his favorite shows.  He also got a popcorn machine which he and Michelle's boyfriend Kevin put together.

Michael's mom loved her calendar!

The highlight of Billa's evening was a Dora the Explorer tent which she loves to hide in.  When she gets mad at us or doesn't want to get dressed/change diapers/do what we ask of her, she hides in it and giggles at her own cleverness.  I'll have to get a video of it if I can, but it's hilarious!  It now resides permanently in the living room.

What could be in this box?

Sweet!  A tent!

They'll never find me in here...mwahaha!

All in all, we had a great time with Michael's mom, Carl, Michelle, Cait, and Kevin.  We we were sad to have to leave early. but we had to get Billa to bed before she lost her cool.

Happy Christmas!
