I just woke up about 30 mins ago and I’m sitting here reading the news online.
Yesterday was a great day, everything went very well. Me and Lev went to my parents place around lunch for the traditional lutefisk, we had a nice dinner and it was Lev’s first time trying the lutefisk. After the dinner we just relaxed for 30 mins in the couch and was looking trough some ads that was sent out from the bigger electronic stores here in Sweden. My parents went out for a short walk and during that time Lev was fixing so that my dad can hook up his laptop to the TV, something that he has not managed to figured out how to do in near a year now
Lev got the laptop hooked up fine to the TV of course, being a technical mastermind, and we watched some of the pictures on the laptop, from vacations and from my dads 50th birthday this summer. We almost missed turning on the Donald Duck Christmas Special but my sister remembered it at the very last minute. We actually didn’t even watch the show as we spend that time handing out the gifts. I got really nice gifts this year to and I’m very very pleased with what I got. Let’s see if I can think of it all here…
From my sister I got an triple eyeshadow from Isadora, Pink grapefruit body butter, Hello Kitty socks, a silver necklace and a book with smoothie recipes. My parents gave me a Hello Kitty pajama, red bathrobe, pie forms, alarm clock and a big black lantern that fits big candles. Lev got a computer guard and a tiny vacuum cleaner that you hook up through the USB ports from my parents and a radio car with Yoshi on it from my sister.
After handing out the presents me and my sister gave Lev a ride home as my parents were having the whole family over for the Christmas smörgåsbord later in the evening and a lot of people always means a lot of stress for him. I always wants him to feel well and I don’t force him to stay around for big family gatherings and we did actually spend half of the day, if not more, together.
Around 18:00 pm the whole family came over, grandparents, uncles, wifes, cousins and their partners. We ate food and had a gift game. The gift game means that everyone buys one gift, not telling anyone else what they got and then on Christmas Eve all the gifts are put on a table and everyone gets to pick one gift. This year we used a deck of card to decide who got to choose a gift first. I got a small and nice black lantern as a gift, goes very well with the big one I got earlier in the day from my parents.
I basically went home after the gift game, around 22:00 pm, as I wanted to spend the rest of the night with Lev. We had not yet switched gifts so it was very exciting to go home Haha.
Lev had made a beautiful card and I got tons of things from him! I got the fourth season of Futurama (I have all seasons now!),clothes, a swimming card for one month (exactly what I wanted, wieee!) and a lot of funny and cool Hello Kitty stuff, like a mouse pad, mini figures and such. I had bought a xbox360 HD DVD player to Lev and the movie “Apollo 13″ , which I know that he likes, on HD DVD.
It was such a good day and everything worked out so well. I hope next year is just as good too
I hope that everyone else also had a great day!
