I hope you all have a safe and Merry Holiday! The kiddos are really happy with their gifts! Mamu got Sascha the book series he’s been wanting really bad and Fumiko got a Monster High doll house. Kai picked them up earlier today and they got them some gifts as well. I need a wine glass and some wine.
Thanks to the kiddo’s families they are getting some awesome stuff for christmas! Makes up for me not being able to do anything. Fumiko doesn’t know it yet but her Mamu got her the Monster High doll house and she got some stuff Sascha has been wanting! Sascha’s family is getting him the laptop his school wants him to have to hopefully make things easier for him!
This is my christmas wishlist! Things I’ve really been wanting!
My wish list is so random at certain points. haha I want the christmas tree most of all. It would be nice to not worry about whether or not we’ll be able to get one next year. Have you posted a christmas wishlist? What are you wanting this year?
If you like this post do me a favor and like it up there on the top right!
Short post, lots of picture spam. It was a real Christmas this year. The kids got some good things, my mom made me sauteed mushrooms and a nice little roast. No arguments or any issues. It was just nice and joyful. I hope everyone else is having a nice, safe holiday! Please be safe to those traveling. Crappy phone pictures ahoy!

Fumiko turned 4 yesterday and today I’m 30. Made white tulip cupcakes with pureed strawberries and homemade whipped cream for Fumiko yesterday. I ended up going to sleep early last night because I wasn’t feeling well and woke up around 4am really sick and ended up throwing up. I still feel ill. Ugh.
I didn’t realize my hipstamatic film got changed. Stupid shakey changey thingy. So these are all dark. I didn’t realize it had changed until all the presents were opened. So poop. But at least I got photos! My mom came up and watched Fumiko open presents too! She’s still recovering from having a stent put in her main artery so she gets tired and exhausted easily. But it was nice that she was able to come up and partake in christmas presents! Now she’s downstairs resting with Willow.
Fumiko got some nice things.
So she got some nice goodies. For her birthday we got her a Starlite pillow pet[2. Which I’m seriously thinking about stealing.] and a Sweet 1600 Clawdeen Wolf Monster High doll. We’ve checked at so many stores for monster high dolls of any kind and there were none, anywhere. I found this one when I went to get a japanese beer from Kai. It was seriously the last doll and she was on sale for $22. Fumiko really wanted the Draculaura, Frankie Stein or C.A. Cupid Sweet 1600 dolls but I can’t find them anywhere in stores and their prices are jacked up online. But I’m sure she’ll like the one we got her anyways. We’ll just work on getting the other ones later. Her birthday is on the 31st, then mine is on the 1st, then Kai’s is on the 7th, and his mom’s is on the 21st I think? Lots of January birthdays. I’m still not sure what cupcakes I’m going to do for her birthday and we still have to go get hello kitty themed birthday stuff. But yeah. Today was nice.
Kai got these awesome soft, fuzzy pants from his mom and a star wars light saber chap stick that lights up. haha I got him a bloodstone pendulum and his star wars game. I got a pair of lotus earrings from his mom which are awesome and I love them. She also got us an awesome new shower head. Kai used his new phone upgrade on my phone line so he got me a white iPhone for christmas. It’s seriously awesome and I don’t know how I lived without hipstamatic. :O Santa also brought Fumiko all sorts of goodies. Hello kitty crayons, tattoos, a coloring book, a coloring thing that rolls out and you can cut off individual coloring things, hello kitty, chococat and keroppi socks and some candy. She’s been super happy and calm and sitting quietly playing with her dolls. Though at one point the Neptuna plushie was a zombie and Draculaura and Lagoona Blue had to murder her.
No christmas dinner today. It was not in our budget and I am not up to cooking all that much anymore. Kai’s been doing most of the cooking and I’ve basically been eating steamed broccoli, roasted brussels sprouts and carrots, and sauteed spinach with lemon juice. Not much is agreeing with me lately.
So yeah. It’s been a nice day. I hope everyone is having a wonderful day and staying safe! haha and now Fumiko is watching monster high.
Merry Meet! Happy Hallow’s Eve, Blessed Samhain and Blessed Beltane to those in the Southern Hemisphere. May you all have a fun and blessed day. Please stay safe. Merry Part.
So for Christmas Kai’s dad sent us a gift card to Amazon. Kai ever so graciously bought me the Kindle I’ve been wanting and used the last of it to buy some things he needed. I love it. I promptly went and downloaded several eBooks that I’d been wanting to read, and some I’d already read, but wanted to again. I’ve been reading the Kushiel series. I’m on book 2. Let me tell you. Never have I seen breeches mentioned so many times as I have in these books. It makes me want to actually use it instead of pants. hehe I can’t wait to read through the series and get to the last two books that I hadn’t read yet.
I can’t sleep. So here’s a Christmas wishlist.
Yep that’s what I would want. Though I really really want a carpet cleaner. I’d be super happy with that. The black african soap is awesome for acne. I’ve used the shea moisture brand for a long time, but I’ve heard really good things about Coastal Scents soap. I need a good oil for winter because my skin gets so dry that it cracks and hurts. The shea oil looks awesome and is pretty cheap so I’ve wanted to try that for awhile. I’ve heard it helps with acne and by helps I mean it doesn’t make it worse. haha. It’s cheaper than nanocleanse products yo. And camera lens speaks for itself. I miss having a fully functioning lens. Though all of the things on my list will probably wait until we have our tax refund and get things paid off. Would like to at least get the carpet cleaner and my lens then. Yes wishful thinking months ahead of time for the win.
Thanksgiving went well. I cooked all day. But we had turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, parmesan asiago garlic mashed potatoes, pumpkin and apple pie and homemade whipped cream. Kharizma brought brussels sprouts and her lavender/ginger syrup. Yum. I only managed to hurt myself mildly! The worst of it was the burn on my finger from accidentally turning on the wrong burner. I turned the one under the glass pie plate on and didn’t realize then picked it up burned the crap out of my finger and then dropped it on the floor. For awhile I just had a brownish burn in the shape of a heart almost, then it turned into a giant blister. It remained a blister until Sushi lanced it the other night.
We’ve been living on leftovers and everything is gone except a tiny bit of turkey and some stuffing. Even Sushi has been eating some of the plain turkey with some oil all mixed into her dry food. Tonight though we shall have teriyaki panko breaded tilapia with rice and corn. Yum. It’s been kind of amusing reading all of the Black Friday stories. We were even told about a lady who was burned by some man. She apparently reached over his shoulder to pick something from a top shelf and he burned her with a butane lighter. The police who responded basically chastised her and couldn’t believe she would call them for such a trivial matter. Cause you know being burned by a crazy many isn’t scary or dangerous at all. You’d think she was trying to take his Prada handbags or something the way he reacted. People are crazy on Black Friday. Glad I never go out.
