Christmas 2018!!!

Hello everyone! Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! Welcome to 2019 and this is my first post of the year and I will tell you about what I did for my Christmas this year! So if you are ready, let’s get started!

What I did for Christmas

So like I mentioned in a previous post about how I go home for Christmas, and I did that again this year. As per the past couple of times, I have gone home I have taken an extra day to spend in town at my long-time best friends place. We mainly just hang out, game, go workout, have a few drinks and catch up and such which I always enjoy. The following day I go to the airport to catch my plane home. The flight was good, the first thing my mom said to me was “Where did you go?” as she poked at my stomach. The last time she saw me was about 5-6 month before then, so I had lost a little bit of weight since then. Then we went back home and I got to see my dog which I was happy to see. I was telling you before how my mom has a slight Disney obsession but this year it was worse. She had everything that I mentioned before plus they got another tree that she decorated with just Disney decorations and she also made homemade gingerbread cookies in the shape of Mickey Mouse’s head! I Also got to see a lot of my family which was nice also.

What I got for Christmas

So I guess I will tell you what I got for Christmas. I never really ask for anything anymore because there is nothing I really need or want, they pay for my flight there and back so I don’t really ask for much, they keep on asking me until I give them ideas but I never know what to say. All I asked for was a new gym bag and new workout headphones besides that I asked for gift cards and clothes. Anyways, I will tell you what I got. I got my new gym bag and new wireless headphones (my audio jack is messed up so wireless work great), lots of new clothes, a few gift cards, some cool wooden puzzles, a few odds and ends and a Classic Super Nintendo, that Kristina and myself played the shit out of yesterday hahaha.

What my family got

This will be just a brief summary of what everyone got. My brother got lots of clothes, some new poster frames, a few gift cards, and some odds and ends, and some stuff for his car. My mom got lost of new clothes and pajamas, lots of Disney related things. Every year my parents give each other one big gift, my mom’s big gift this year was a couple of new pieces for her Christmas village. This year my dad got a new cigar box, clothes, work stuff, a lot of Boston stuff (he is a big fan of the Boston Bruins). Now there is a little bit to my dad’s big gift from my mom. My dad’s 50th birthday is coming up next year and it is also my parents 25th wedding anniversary. So my mom got a big box with some little boxes in it, 3 little boxes and 1 medium box. Each little box had letters that spelled something out. The first was “Merry Christmas”, the second was “Happy Anniversary” and the third was “Happy Birthday” and in the medium box was 2 plane tickets and 2 hockey tickets to a Boston Bruins game in Boston next May for him and my mom! Now, my dad’s final gift was from my brother and myself and he had no idea about it and I don’t know if we topped my mom’s gift to him. We went halves and bought my dad a brand new snow blower and hid it in his shed. After all the gifts were open we went out to the shed to give him his last gift. I have been alive for almost 22 years and this was the first time I saw my dad cry. He told us he was very proud of us and he also kept telling us that we spent way too much on him. The snow blower we had before was very old and very bad. It needed to be replaced years ago. From it just not working, to having to replace parts every year and having to borrow a someone else constantly because ours was so bad. It was always something that my parents wanted to get a new one but they would always say “maybe next year” and they always kept saying that, so my brother and I went and got him a brand new one that is fully covered. So my dad did very well this Christmas.

Christmas with babe

So before and after Christmas Kristina and myself had our own little gift exchange. I got her a book she really wanted, a wiener dog Callender and a Legend of Zelda to go coffee cup. She gave me a new hat and a new Deadpool Figurine! I told her before I left that I would be coming back Jan. 2nd but I actually surprised her and came home Dec. 30th and spent the last few games with her and her family. I came back with gifts because it was also her birthday the 27th. I brought her back some homemade bath bombs and soap, coffee made back home, I also brought her homemade cherry cake. My parents also got her a few little things also.

Today’s question is, what did you get for Christmas this year?

Thank you so much for reading my post, I am back from my vacation and getting back into the full swing of things. Anyways, I appricate you taking the time to read my post and as always, have a great day!

  1. Ahahaha yep, love your mom’s comment x)
    good thing it was for how much you’ve lost and not how much you’ve gained though *aherm* or else that would’ve been a bit awful.

    I loved your parents’ gifts and feel a little cheap I actually haven’t gotten them anything.. It was kind of unexpected as I never actually got the chance to ever meet them yet..
    Surprising you haven’t told them the wii bowling spree, ahahah! I actually never played as good before xD
