    What a crazy day. After falling asleep around 5am on Xmas morning, we woke up around 10am, and went to breakfast with Jessica's Mom and her boyfriend. After that, we exchanged some gifts with them.

    Once they left, we went over to my cousin's house where my aunt, uncle, and 2 other cousins were spending Xmas. We ended up having dinner there before exchanging more gifts. After that, we went home and took a nap...only to wake up to my phone receiving a txt message saying that my best friend and his wife were too tired to drive up to our place tonight. :bad:

    I got to talk to my parents for awhile, which was nice. Also, my favorite bother who lives in California called...and then a few minutes later, my sister who lives several states away in the opposite direction called. Neither of my brothers that I don't really like called...but that's ok, I didn't really feel like talking to them. I probably should have called my grandma, but my parents and the afore mentioned favorite brother were all going to her house to spend Xmas dinner with her...and I'm sure my mom will give our love to her.

    As of right now, the wife is still napping on the couch, and I'm waiting to see if our other friends who were supposed to come over are going to flake out on us...which they probably will since it's past 11pm. :bad: Oh well...at least the rest of Xmas this year was awesome! :rolling:

    Ha! That's my mom most years. Probably would have happened this year if she was actually here. :shake:

    Also, I forgot to mention that I also got another mini glass sword. :bigeyes: :rolling:
