We had a really low key Christmas at my parent's house this year. It was nice not having to worry about a whole lot of family or holiday events. It was really nice getting to spend quality time with my mom and Sheldon really enjoyed getting to spend quality time with their cable watching bowl games. We did a lot of baking and cooking including making sinful cinnamon rolls and the family tradition of making homemade egg noodles (something my grandpa did for every family holiday meal).
My mom surprised me with a quilt that she finally finished making for me after 11 years.
This tag is on the back of it.
It is king sized and was hand quilted. It was pretty much the quilt that got her started with quilting and she's made many quilts since this one. I'm so happy that she finally finished my quilt. We're going to sleep with it tonight as my mom told me that I have to use it at least once for good luck. We'll use it a lot once we have a bigger bed.
I also got a Red Velvet First Date dress from my parents! I've wanted one of the plus size dresses from this line since they were released, but funds were never available when I thought about getting one, so I was very happy that my mom listened to my hints :)
I think it's a little short for work so it will have to be a going out dress, but I'm totally in love with it!
Sheldon spoiled me with new earrings, two vintage aprons for my collection, the 24 color set of Martha Stewart glitter and more fun totally Dana things. He knows me well.
I got Sheldon a humidor and some other very Sheldon things.
The dogs really enjoyed the antlers Santa Paws left in their stockings.
Dash has since decided that both of them are his and often tries to chew on them both at the same time, greedy bastard.
All I wanted was a picture of the two dogs sitting in front of the tree. Dewey would have absolutely nothing to do with this idea and Dash made it incredibly hard and decided to conveniently forget how to sit.
We haven't taken them off since Sunday, sadly.
