14 movies later...

So on black friday, I headed out at dark-thirty with my sister-in-laws to a crazy world of shopping. I discovered that when you get up at 3am, you can buy movies pretty cheap.

Now some of you that know me pretty well know that I'm not one for movies. I like them and all, but I don't usually fuss over them, don't like to wait in lines for them, and don't like spending much money on them.

So imagine my surprise when after a morning of shopping frenzy, I had 14 movies in hand.

Those of you who know Bobby, know he loves movies! Imagine his surprise come Christmas day to find out that I had bought him 14! (I admit, a few might have been a little more for me...)

Turns out it was a good thing too. The last few days there hasn't been much around our house but movies and the stomach flu. It hit me halfway through Christmas day, and so we watched movie after movie with me too exhausted to have my usual restlessness. Bobby even finished an entire puzzle by himself while I faded in-and-out.

Then today poor Bobby is getting his turn with the flu, and we are soon going to finish off watching all our new movies

Guess that will give me a turn at this puzzle.. Though I'm not as dedicated as he is, and this border is as far as I've gotten. The night is young, and if bobby comes back to life and switches back from movies to the star-trek marathon on our DVR, I'm going to have to stick to the puzzle!

'twas the night before christmas

And we are finally decking our Halls!

Bobby hammered and sawed, and I swept and stirred, and our house readied itself to accept some holiday cheer (and a tree!!)

bobby is wrapping my presents right now while I enjoy Christmas tunes and my beautiful tree

we wish a Very Merry Christmas to you and yours...

icicles trumped

Forgive me to posting photos of such mini little sicles in the last post, I was just too eager and excited when they started forming. Mother Nature continues to keep us in awe as each day they are growing along our porch. I think I'm dreaming of a white Christmas...
