Three peas and their iPods...


Actually it's two iPods and an iPhone, if anyone cares to question the photo above. Yes. It was a very Apple Christmas around here. And while this is what it looked like when I tried to crawl into bed on Christmas night, there was a whole lot of unplugged time that went on as well.

And since I must have listened to Julie Andrew sing about her raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens at least 347 times since November 11, I thought I'd let her in on a few of our favorite things...


This massaging foot spa that Santa brought BB for her tired dancing feet has been a major hit. Once she finished soaking her own piggies, she opened up her own salon and offered pedicures to everyone who has walked through the front door. I think she's earned enough for college already. Must be from the tips she's getting from BSD. She dims the lights. Serves him wine and chocolates. Queues up his favorite songs on Pandora. And let's him soak for a good long while before massaging his feet. If this dancing thing doesn't pan out, the girl's got a future as an aesthetician. Either that or she's sure to woo any guy she chooses with all this pampering she's practicing.


And what could be better than playing with a three story Barbie Townhouse? With an elevator? And a rooftop jacuzzi? How about playing with a three story Barbie Townhouse. With an elevator. And a rooftop jacuzzi. While listening to your Mommy's new iPod Touch. That she let you bling out with your own bejewelled case. And load up with all the apps and music. That your  little heart desires. That your $10 gift card can buy.


And then there's the mug. Gotta love it when your hubby's favorite gift is a gawdy $13 coffee mug. Because it has a picture of Wonder Woman on it. Because he has a Wonder Woman fetish. Because he thinks his wife is Wonder Woman. I may not be the richest girl in Virginia Beach, but I am the luckiest.

It was a mellow Christmas at home. We spent the entire day in our pj's. We even ate dinner. In the dining room. With the special Christmas china. Wearing our pj's. aaahhhh.

And just like LB said, I got the things on my list...

"Daddy coming home. And peace and quiet."

Well, maybe not so much of the peace and quiet...

I hope you all had a very, Merry Christmas surrounded by those you love also. We're gearing up for New Year's Eve. We're ready for another great bash this year! How about you? Any rockin' New Year's Eve plans?

I want to come visit you for many reasons, but the pedicure thing is inching its way to the top ;)

Looks like a good one! I love the photo of all the wrapping! We always have a big mess, but it's so fun!

I love the expressions on BSD's face when he is opening his mug. The Ipod photo is great too! I'm glad it was a good Christmas. :)

That first picture looks like it could be an advertisement or a commercial!.
Wish I could stop over for a nice foot bath and massage! Smart girl you have there!
So cute that BSD thinks your his wonder woman!!!

What a great Christmas! The foot spa is such a great idea! Why have I never thought of that??!! So glad that your man is home and you guys are all curled up together. I love the shot of your living room and the milk and cookies left for Santa, too sweet!

A belated merry Christmas to you Kim and a very happy New Year!

first ... soooo envious that you got to spend the whole of christmas day in your pi's - my dream!!
second, that first photo is cracking me up - it's life in my house for sure ... you need to stop by to see the book parody i gave to the manbug and find it for yourself ;)

Sounds like a fantastic Christmas. We had a good one as well. Love that first shot.

OK, add another thing to the list of similarities....Michael and I got each other iphones for Christmas too!!! WTH! We surely are living parallel lives in different states! And, I agree with Kerri, Apple should buy that 1st photo from you to use for an ad campaign! It rocks! Another kicker, Randi got Michael a mug for Christmas too, sans Wonder Woman though...his just says Totally Awesome Dad (she picked it out herself) and even though I reminded her that he doesn't drink coffee, she told me he could use if for his ice cream. Smart girl! Tell BB I'm proud of her for being such an entrepreneur at such a young age. The girl has got it going on and if I lived closer I'd so totally be booking an appt with her...chocolates at a salon...now that's brilliant! Randi has a bazillion Barbies but hardly plays with them....maybe I need to get her some tunes to inspire her! And that last shot just sums it all up...Christmas mayhem at its finest! I'd say I hope you all had a wonderful holiday but I KNOW you did!
