What a Christmas

DH Tracy and I had the best Christmas we have had in years. The day started when Tracy got home from work, made the coffee and then woke me up so we could open our presents. Again he has spoiled me totally rotten. I got everything on my list. I have to be careful what I ask for because he always gets me everything I could ever want. I got 2 pairs of ear rings, a Eeyore watch, some good smelly stuff, fuzzy socks to keep my feet warm, a DVD player (ours died at the beginning of the week), Momma Mia DVD and of course my new desk that he got me earlier this month as a early pressie. He also told me to go ahead and place a order at 123 Stitch. And if that wasn't enough he gave me cash to get a new Christmas outfit. Told you I was spoiled.

After all this he took a nap since we had plans to go out. We had planned on going to the Strip to check out the decorations but by the time we got ready is was VERY windy and cold so we decided to just go downtown where everything is close together and there is protection from the wind. I was getting hungry so we thought a early dinner would be nice, so we headed for our favorite buffet. Boy was it good and I ate way too much. After dinner we had some time to kill before the movie we wanted to see so sat down at the slots. Tracy won enough to pay for our dinner and the movie. When we stepped outside it was pouring rain, good thing the movie theater was close and we didn't get too wet. We saw "Valkyrie" with Tom Cruise. It isn't your typical feel good Christmas move but it was very good and I really enjoyed it, can't say as much for Tracy as he fell asleep (good thing he didn't start snoring). After the movie we went back to the casino to get our Starbucks coffee and did some people watching. Tracy wanted to play some more and I sure wasn't going to tell him no. Again the lucky guy WON!!! and I lost until we decided it was almost time to come home. One last machine, he won again and told me to go ahead and play. I finally won, put in $5 on a penny machine (that's all we play) and it was my turn....I walk away from the machine with $66.00. He told me on the way home he came out almost $200 ahead.

Tomorrow will be another fun day. First will be a trip to the doctors to have his stitches out (they weren't ready last week), then it will be off to play tourist and maybe do some shopping at the good Michaels across town.

I hope everyone had as great a Christmas as we did.

Until Next Time....Happy Stitching

Sounds great, he must be the unusual one to play the slots and actually win a lot! I wondered if the new TC movie was worth it..... I will probably still wait for the DVD!
