Where we left off on chat 16:
Well after extensive discussion and everyone being in agreement, the IL's broke the rule about buying for adults and DH and I were given gifts!! We were only supposed to buy for the kids this year! Now we look like losers for not getting the adults anything. Our kid gifts were a hit though. Lyla didn't unwrap a single gift. I guess because she's never been given a wrapped gift at all. Even at her birthday they were all in bags. And since we were at grandma's, where there were tons of knick knacks and tiny/glass Christmas figurines on low shelves, she wasn't too interested in any of the actual presents.
I got a box of 243 bullets from FIL. I don't own a 243. DH does, so I guess I'll have to borrow his rifle to use my bullets.
My brother had his work schedule changed so he worked yesterday, which means his marraige proposal got moved to today. I keep waiting to hear something, but nothing so far. I called him, but got no answer. I guess they'll tell everyone whenever they get around to it.
Been to the shops and back, not much good stuff out, but I love how anything vaugly related to Christmas is now half price. We needed more custard because hubby bought home two huge tins of pudding and the custard Mum bought went out of date yesterday so I bought yummy expensive brandy custard because it was reduced. Also got a colouring in book to put aside for Ronin for next year and a chocolate and coffee gift pack
Anna dont feel bad, if they broke the rules they really must of wanted to get you guys something.. Im glad Lyla had a good day..
Our Christmas has been a busy crazy one. We woke up early, did the kids presents, got showered, ate, went to church, then came home and got our families presents in the car and off we went. It was nice, but man my house is a disaster.. Natalie was a stinker.. She didnt get a nap and kinda whined all day. My niece had to hold her the whole time because that is who she wanted and when she would get put down, she would cry.

I was all set to take Ronin to church for the Christmas Eve service this year but I couldn't find the time for the service listed anywhere for the Anglican church here in town so we went looking at Christmas lights and when we drove past around 7:30 it appeared to be starting but neither of us were dressed for church, Ronin was in his pjs and I was in this silk wrap hippy style dress I have. Oh well, next year.
I wish hubby would eat vegetarian lasange, I found a recipe for a polenta and zucchini (but I would add more veg with it) lanange but there is no point maiking it if he won't eat it.
Wendy my dh is the same way sorta. I made lasagna one time with spinich and meat and he threw a fit. He said that all he could taste was the spinich.. I asked him about eggplant and that was a big NO!!
My phone friend just sent me a pic. Somehow she caught pink eye!! She looks horrible.

I just realised I missed buying somethign really important when I did the groceries, mustard pickles. You have to have mustard pickles to go on boxing day leftover ham sandwiches. I had to make do with hot English mustard and I can tell you it's just wrong.
My DH actually appreciates the occasional vegetarian dish. I bet I could make a vegi lasagna and he'd eat it fine, though I'm sure he'd say he prefers it with meat. I wanted to switch to whole wheat pasta only, but DH hates whole wheat pasta, so that's a no go big time.
Anna, that is a really random present to me. lol. I agree that you shouldn't feel bad because there was clearly an agreement!
Wendy, great reminder for me to check out all those random Christmas packs things. I bet I can find some cheap bath stuff and food items that are considered to be "Christmas" tomorrow.
Oh, and I make the vegetarian lasagna but never tell DH till after he starts eating it and asks about the meat. By that point he can't claim he doesn't like it because he's already had a few bites without complaint.
The only reason we found out the mass times here was because of the church FB page. I find it really sad that I couldn't find out the times on their webpage, but I could on FB. The church we tried was HUGE, so we're going to try the other Catholic church in town next weekend. In the past we've found it really hard to feel like a member in a large church. Even though we're not here for long, I'd still like to try to find a church I like.
