This was a very sweater Christmas, which was good, because I needed some new ones (as I sit here, I am wearing a very comfortable, but holey L.L. Bean sweater, that I'm not allowed to wear outside anymore). I got a very nice maroon cashmere sweater from my MIL, and three, more casual sweaters from Mrs. BA. I also got a sweater from my father, who also remembered the right stocking stuffer for my siblings and me. A new popcorn maker was under the tree, which was good, because Mrs. BA threw out the old one. I made popcorn for LBA and SoBA for pizza/movie night tonight and somehow, it tasted better.
Mrs. BA and I also scored some gift cards for shopping for things that we may not have realized we wanted or needed (as did LBA and SoBA) and my father made a contribution to a repair that we need to make to the Brave Astronaut mobile. And we also got some new towels, a very exciting gift - but it's what we needed.
LBA and SoBA were also good boys this year - and were rewarded with multiple Lego sets, Razor scooters, DVDs, and new Wii games. LBA also scored a iPod shuffle and SoBA has a new LeapPad. Mrs. BA and I will be working on getting them to write thank you notes soon.
Mrs. BA really wanted one particular gift - and I was having trouble finding it - so I checked with Santa and he delivered me one.
Yep, it's the Lego Museum Break-in.
