Ashley had us all up at 6:00 this morning ready to open gifts. We started with Truman and Wilson's stockings. They eat had three doggie truffles, a breath cleansing bone and a toy.
Then we each opened our own stockings. We wrap each gift and go individually to unwrap. Some highlight stocking stuffers this year were a beaded clutch, a tiger striped wallet, Farkle, and a Straight No Chaser CD. After unwrapping the stockings, we moved on to gifts. Bob passed out the presents this year. Highlight gifts Ashley: Cole Haan shoes, Eric: Topsider shoes, Bob: Kitchenaid Food Processor and Global knives, Terri: screen door, microwave and a gold Tiger bracelet.
After gifts, we watched some more Glee, while Bob prepared us a breakfast of gingerbread waffles, homemade applesauce, sausage crescent rolls, brown sugar bacon and a knock off of Starbuck's salted caramel hot chocolate. Before we eat, we pulled our poppers. We had great gifts this time! A key chain, a wine charm, a deck of cards and a golf counter! Breakfast was wonderful.
When we cleaned up, we played a game of Farkle. We decided it was a great game and look forward to many more games this year. This Farkle game is in a container about the size and shape of a film canister (remember those?) and would be perfect to travel with.
Ashley and Eric are now at the Hasty's house where we will join them for dinner this evening. What a great day for spending with family and friends. Merry Christmas, all!
