After a day of relaxing, I think I've finally recovered from Christmas.

I woke up earlier than what I'd wanted to on Christmas morning, all thanks to my cold. My fiance woke up shortly afterward, so I made us some hot tea and we exchanged presents. He spoiled me rotten this year, I swear. He got me the extended edition Blu-ray set of The Lord of the Rings, a hardcover copy of The Hobbit, and a gorgeous necklace with a blue topaz stone. I think the necklace was the most surprising thing; we've been together for over eight years, and he's never gotten me jewelry. Granted, I never ask for it, but still... it was really thoughtful of him, and I love it so much.

As for gifts I gave to him: Two PS3 games (Ace Combat: Assault Horizon and Metal Gear Solid 4 - both games he'd specifically asked for), a demotivational calendar from ThinkGeek, a replica of the 10th Doctor's sonic screwdriver (also from ThinkGeek), the Invincible CD by Two Steps from Hell, a miniature remote-control helicopter, and a set of 3 display swords. I probably spent more than I should have, but Christmas is the one time of year I'm able to afford to spoil him a bit. My fiance really deserves it for supporting me and the decisions I've made over the years.

My parents had dinner at their house again this year. We had the usual Christmas dinner - turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, gravy, etc. My Aunt Pat and her son were there, which was surprising since they never show up to family functions. My grandpa was also supposed to call from California to talk to my sister and I, but he didn't. I can't say I'm too surprised by that one, though. I haven't spoken to him since I was in sixth grade, and he really hasn't shown an interest in his own children's lives, let alone his grandchildren. Regardless, we had a good time with my family and made sure to bring home plenty of leftovers.

Now to just start making holiday plans for next year...
