30 Days Of Winter +Day 7

It truly was a memorable Christmas! Jeremy and I spent our first Christmas together. First, I must say this is the first Christmas I was able to sleep in until 10:30, because my younger brother, Michael, wasn't there to wake me up at 8. :) Although, when I woke up the bed was empty, Jeremy was already in the living room, PLAYING A VIDEO GAME. :) So I shuffled my way out there, and said, "Lets open GIFTS." At this point Jeremy thought he wasn't getting ANYTHING, because of the insanely LARGE TV and PS3 he got for his BIRTHDAY, which I had told him it was his Christmas present as well. BUT... I was very SNEAKY. I bought him a package of socks, which he NEEDED, and I got him some AXE body wash, deodorant and spray, PHOENIX scent, HIS FAVORITE. AND.... I got him 2 blu-ray DVD's. Wanted & 300, two movies I know he'll LOVE, and guess what, HE LOVED IT. He was soooo surprised that he got ANYTHING. So... I am so glad that I was able to keep it a secret until Christmas, I really wanted to surpise him, and It was so hard, because I was getting so excited to give it to him. There was one situation that almost gave it all away. I had ordered the BLU-Rays on amazon.com, and I had them delivered to the Church, where I work, but they weren't scheduled to make it there until last Monday, and I wasnt going to be there, so I made a phone call, and it happened to get delivered to our apartment, so he saw that UPS slip on the door stating that they had delivered it to the main office at our apartment complex. I was freaking... so the next day I asked my boss if she could stop by the apartment complex office to pick up the package, since Jeremy and I drive the same car home from work. SO... you can imagine the predicament I was in. I called the offices to see if my boss could, the girl then said, "We... dont usually do that. We only give it to the person who's name is on the box." So... I told her my situation, she said hold on, came back on the phone, and said that it would be fine if my boss came to pick it up. I was so freaking excited. So... I actually told Jeremy that I had to go to my boss' house to grab something, and so we did, and then I snuck it in my purse and hid it in the closet. And he was totally surprised that he got ANYTHING. :) It was the highlight of my Christmas. Whoo hooo!

It was a wonderful Christmas baby! What fun we had and I was totally surprised by the gifts. I wasn't expecting anything! Not that I was upset, I got a pretty amazing birthday gift so I was all set but it was just an extra blessing to get more of course, so thanks! I'm glad we finally got the boots you wanted.

how i did the birthday picture with the candles is i origianlly took it in color with the candles on focus and the backround of the picture blurry, and i edited the candles on picnik.com i went to the black and white section in effects and i clicked the paintbrush and just figured it out from there.. thanks for the comments again! :)
