So I'm all done Christmas shopping. And! They are almost all wrapped! Go me.
Well, there is one thing that I didn't get. My husband gave me a Christmas list a few weeks ago. Mostly books, and movies, and a board game. That he wants me to play with him. Yippee.
Anyway, I ordered all his stuff off of Amazon and I didn't even have to go to the Mall. Not that I go to the Mall. I avoid the Mall like the plague. Especially this time of year. So I thought I was good to go, as far as shopping for him. Until last weekend. We're watching T.V. and all of a sudden he turns to me and says "I think I want a Wii for Christmas". At first I'm like "A what? A who?" "A Wii", he says. You know, the gaming system". "Ohhhhhh......that. "Are you kidding me? It's like, 22 days before Christmas. There is no way I will be able to score one of those. Are you crazy?" I said(Or something a little more empathetic. I can't remember exactly) I have looked online, but there is not a Wii to be found(Heh. I like saying it. Wii. Heh Heh.) So if anyone knows where I can get a Wii(for less than $500. Seriously. $500? Give me a break), please do share. I told him not to get his hopes up too much. Why, oh why, can't men plan ahead like we do? Why?
Speaking of Christmas presents, yesterday I went to the mailbox and found this:
Is she not the cutest? Her name is Luo Pan, which is "Hope" in Chinese. Pan Pan for short. I ordered her four months ago, but when I didn't receive her and my check didn't clear I thought my order had either gotten lost in the mail or I was too late in ordering(they are numbered and only a certain amount were being made). Imagine my surprise(and delight) when she came in the mail yesterday. I think she will be coming to China with us. And you know I had to buy Gracie one too, because cousins must have matching dollies. They must.
I wish I could tell you where I got her, but it was so long ago I can't remember and all that was on the return address was someone's home address. I do remember that I found out about them through the One Hundred Good Wishes Quilt group I belong to.
