Christmas in late January!

That's right! Christmas for me was tonight! Because of the crazy winter weather this holiday season, my parents had a rough time getting the presents they'd ordered in on time, and I had a tough time getting to my parents to receive the presents. :( But! Despite UPS's stupidity, I managed to get a box with Christmas presents this afternoon, and enjoyed opening them tonight after gym!

Here's some of the loot:

A large purple scarf from my sister, DVDs of 27 Dresses and The Devil Wears Prada, pretty silver earrings, and 2 books (A Devil to Play, and Franklin and Winston).

A sweet set of new wine glasses!

My parents always find the quirkiest stuff for presents - like the book about learning to play the french horn above (I played for 8 years), and they definitely take note when I talk about things that I need (like wine glasses - my set of 8 is down to three, so these were definitely needed!).

I love Christmas.

This is what I'm talking about. Why can't people give us presents every month?

Ashley: Late Christmas was awesome! It even made up for the fact that it was late!

Jay: I know, now I just need to come up with an excuse to get presents in March... (I figure February is covered with Valentines Day). :D

What lovely gifts!

Getting a package or real letter in the mail (especially on a random day)is the most exciting thing!
