We had an agreement… a verbal contract… an understanding. This year my DH and I said that we’d abstain from buying each other gifts because 1. we honestly don’t need anything and 2. our budget didn’t need the extra hit. Well, one of us followed through… mostly. I technically never bought my DH a gift, but my girls wanted to get him some shirts. The Christmas socks I’m knitting (yes, they still aren’t finished) for him don’t count because the yarn was purchased before the agreement was made. But he, on the other hand, outright lied. Liar, liar, pants on fire!
Not only did he buy me spiffy, Tweety Bird pajamas and a new copy of an old favorite cd (AC/DC’s Back in Black), but he also bought me a new computer! Holy moly. I’m too excited to be mad at him. My old PC froze any time more than 3 applications were open at the same time. There was so much malware, spyware and other bad stuff infesting the hard drives that virus checks would run throughout the night and need follow-up work in the mornings. This new machine is fast and clean. And not just internally clean, but there is no sticky goo on the keyboard! He rocked Christmas in a huge way. When I questioned him about our agreement he said, “I’m sick of listening to you cussing about your computer!”
The girls all enjoyed their Christmas presents and the day at home. We stayed in p.j.s and grazed haphazardly on really fattening foods. All of this relaxing has worn us out, so we’re probably going to turn in early tonight. In the morning I’m taking A1 out on a solo shopping trip so she can spend the money Santa left for her.
Here are some random pictures documenting Christmas 2010 in our home.
