Christmas Christmas Christmas

Oh my goodness.

So. Lots of fun Christmas-ey things have ensued the last couple of days. Christmas began for me on Sunday, in Cairo, with Pete and many members of his family. We began the weekend with a whirlwind of wrapping gifts, baking, cooking, cleaning, shopping...all KINDS of good stuff! Cairo is cute when it's dressed up for Christmas, lots of old-fashioned candles and Christmas trees that hang from street lights and little gaudy board cut-outs of snowmen and reindeer in the park. A big lit-up Christmas tree on one of the main streets. I love old-fashioned stuff.

Not only did Pete's family completely bestow loads of gifts upon me (The Office, Audrey Hepburn movies, beautiful books), Bridgett gave me some SCREENS for my GOCCO!!! (Thanks, Bridgett. I've been meaning to get your number from Pete but I keep forgetting.)

Then, due to unforeseen circumstances, me, mom, dad, Emme, and Pete had our annual Christmas celebration, with a new member! I think Pete enjoyed it. And the biggest surprise of all was that dad bought us (the familly) a Wii. Um, it's awesome. Just in case you weren't sure. Insanely awesome.

As of now I have no pictures to show you, but when I do, I will post them. Next up is heading to Chicago (well, the suburbs) tomorrow for a few days, then back down to Cairo for awhile . THEN, come January 1, me and Pete are vegans. For real. And I LOVE cheese. So we'll see how that goes. I will be sure to keep you updated on that.

Oh, PS: This is me and Pete's first Christmas together! I'm pretty excited about it. It will be nice being with each other in person, instead of periodically talking on the phone, on Christmas day. Le sigh.

You're welcome!

Vegans, really...my neighbors across the street are vegans (she calls herself a bad vegan because she also likes the cheese). I was a vegetarian between the girls but fell off the wagon....
