Well, it's exactly 4 hours away till 2009.
While I'm waiting for the new year to begin, here's some photos of Christmas Day 2008 with my older sister, brother, and parents:
Here's another look at the Christmas tree before we put it away on January 2nd.
This is the traditional Christmas Day morning before the present unwrapping event. Notice all the coffee shop take-out cups? Mine's the steeped tea double double.
The 14-karat gold pearl earrings is what I gave my mother this year (plus the L.A.M.B. watch). Actually, she picked it out and I paid for it. Hey, at least I know she would like it. ;p
My mother gave me this jewelry box. I needed this since all my bracelets, necklaces, and pendants are always tangled in a jumbled mess. I wasn't expecting this so I was pleasantly surprised. Thanks, Mom!!
See the watch in the photo? That's what I was talking about earlier. My older sister, brother, and I combined together for this gift. Again, it's what she wanted but forgot she inquired about it during the summer. It looks really nice!
I love this Winter coat! I spotted it in a store during early Fall and liked the pattern and the feel of it when I tried it on. The price tag for it was too steep for me but my older sister bought it as my present. It's so comfy!
The Christmas Day dinner on the 25th. Turkey, shrimp, potatoes, bacon, garlic bread, et cetera. I was so stuffed and must have gained five more pounds during the holiday. It was delicious!
It is now 8:30pm... time is ticking towards 2009.
I'm going to stop blogging and head towards the family room. Sounds like a mahjong game is underway.
See everyone in the New Years!
