Every Christmas, our gifts have a theme. Last year, it was brown paper packages tied up with string. This year, we had white wrapping paper with black snowflakes (except for the ones that Aaron wrapped) and instead of a gift tag, the recipient's photo was on the package. I've already got next year's theme planned and ready to go....but it's a surprise.
It was a very "Notre Dame-y" Christmas for me this year. Aaron gave me a football signed by the 2010 Notre Dame football team with a glass case to protect it. Look whose number is right on top...Robert Hughes! And after he had such a fantastic end to his college career, too. I told you he was fantastic. In addition to all of the Notre Dame goodies that Aaron gave me, his parents also gave me a cozy Notre Dame hoodie. I'll be nice and warm if we're able to go to any games next season.
Lucy drew my name in the gift exchange...two years in a row! She knows that I collect teacups, so she and Mom went antiquing and found these perfect teacups. They are exactly what I would have chosen myself. I think the pink one is my very favorite I've ever had. Lucy is the perfect gift-giver.
To Aaron, Love Me
From Aaron, of course
To Aaron: a Munich bottle opener magnet
For me to use at work
I haven't used these yet...but I can't wait to give it a shot!
A Von Maur certificate from the bosses, and some awesome Aerbonne stuff from my good friend Kari
I bought a pair of earrings and a top (black, of course, just like the rest of my wardrobe) with my certificate.
The wrapping chaos
One more Christmas post, and then we're done! It's about time to move into the January posts now that we're well into February!
