Christmas Part Deux

December 28th, 2014

Yesterday was our Christmas with E. He seemed to enjoy all his presents: baseball cards, a White Sox collectors coin, candy, Dunkin Donuts gift card, McDonald’s gift card, Google Play store gift card, and $100 in cash (because he didn’t really give us any ideas for presents and we eventually ran out). Not surprising, to me at least, was how much he liked the oversized ceramic Pikachu bank we got him. He sure loves Pokemon!

The only thing he wasn’t keen on was the Skullcandy bluetooth wireless speaker we got him. We had seen it at Target for 50% off so we took a gamble knowing he might already have one at home (he does). So I gave him $20 for it and I’m debating whether to keep it or take it back. I already have a wireless speaker but this new one has twice the battery life so it’s tempting to hang onto it but I’m not sure if I really need it.

We ran out to Target for a little bit in the early afternoon and E decided to use some of his money to buy some more baseball cards. I showed him how they were 30% off in the Target Cartwheel app and when we got home he had downloaded it and signed up since he goes to Target sometimes. I’m happy to be a role model for him on how to save a couple of bucks.

I made a delicious Cook’s shank ham that we got at Meijer. I used to get a spiral ham at Target but found that the shank ham comes out much more moist. The regular sides we have every year were included – green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, crescent rolls, corn, mashed potatos, gravy, stuffing, and macaroni and cheese, except the latter was my homemade version instead of boxed.

We spent the day watching movies and just relaxing. It was nice.
