Most Amazing Christmas ever

Meet my new ride, covered in snow, on the first white Christmas I've had since I was a kid. Yep. It's my new Mini Cooper convertible, with racing stripes.  It's a car I've always wanted and my amazing husband thought it was time I owned one. I'm still in shock that he wanted to give me such a tremendous gift.  When I asked him what possessed him to go over our 100 dollar budget. He said he didn't he bought me floor mats, the rest is just because. That's totally him. He's amazing. I'm so very lucky to be loved so much.
In other Christmas happiness my old ride, my Altima got a new home. My brother got into his first accident ever over Halloween and he needed some new wheels. It was a perfect oportunity to give him a pretty awesome Christmas so we gave it to him. He was so shocked and surprised. It was great.
I found some wonderful gifts for our family and received some amazing gifts myself. This Christmas was pretty astounding. Since I'm still in shock about my amazing Mini. I'll post more about the fun times we had this Christmas, the Polish Pierogi's we made and all the laughter we shared.

I hope everyone had a Happy Christmas.

It's a Christmas Miracle

It's December 7th and I'm almost done Christmas shopping. I've gotten everyone except 1 person checked off my list. This NEVER happens. I'm usually thinking away until a few days before Christmas. It feels so good to have things wrapped and placed under the tree.

Now I get to do one of my favorite parts of Christmas shopping. I'm going to go shopping for my Mom with my Dad. It's a yearly tradition and one I really look forward to. It's a day of just my Dad and I, shopping, talking and grabbing lunch. Now we just need to schedule a date.  Also in thinking about my Dad it's almost been a year since he got his hip replaced. His hip had just fallen apart and was causing him great pain. I am so happy that he doesn't hurt anymore. It was so hard to see that he was in such excruciating pain. I'm not sure how he put up with it as long as he did. He may have had to give up baseball but to see him walk pain free is one of the best things that's has happened this year. I guess it's another miracle or medical technology.
