Gosh, we sure do have a knack for posting holiday things way after they've happened. Anyway, we hope you had (and are still having) a wonderful holiday season, whether or not you're back at school. Mama Hen is hoping that we'll be able to exchange New Year's presents this year and decorate the house for 2015...
This is (almost) everything that Mama Hen got for Christmas minus an awesome ukulele, DVD of Breakfast at Tiffany's, loads of candy, and a few other things.
Firstly, she got the Celtic Woman Emerald CD and live concert DVD. We can't wait to show it to Kirsten!
[Emma] When Mama Hen found this in her stocking she flipped out! (Believe me, I was watching). As far as I know she's already watched most (if not all) of it. I'm counting the days until she's done so that i can watch it.
[Mattie] Mama Hen gave us these fantastic chocolate bars she found at the grocery store while we were down there. The 85% dark one was my favorite. :)
We also got...
Kit's Reporter Set!!!
This is the first time Mama Hen has gotten a an American Girl gift for several years because she's too embarrassed to put them on her wish list 9plus AG stuff is really expensive), so we were all surprised when she opened it!
It comes with this adorable camera case.
The amazingly detailed camera! Mama Hen says it matches some of the older cameras she's seen and used before. Unfortunately it doesn't actually work, but it's still cool!
Here's the little shoulder bag, which conveniently had velcro in just the right place to slip it onto our shoulders.
A tiny little notebook fits inside with a pad of refillable paper.
A can of film! It's actually just the paper box, but it would be 10 times better if there were actually a little roll of film inside.
Newspapers! Including the article that Kit wrote in her stories and some of her photos. They actually look and feel like real newspapers!
A tiny pen that can actually uncap (but doesn't write).
A few bonus roof pics...
We'll be back soon with more pictures and maybe a photo story or two!
