Merry Christmas! (Presents with Miranda and Juno)

My sister, Juno, stayed over with me last night. Honestly, she doesn't have a house of her own, so I told her she could just stay with me as long as she wants. We were great roommates before, I think it'll work out.

We wandered downstairs, and checked out presents even before coffee!

And there actually were some! Santa brought Juno something! 

I got a present from my buddy, Lori, of Happily Ever After in Virginia. She's awesome. 

And she sent me awesome, super comfy cozy slippers! These are so cool! Thank you, Lori!!!

A present came along with the Major Award, from my friend Zorropirate and her army of Latis, but I didn't want to open it until Christmas. 

It was cleverly wrapped in a gum box. This is pretty brilliant.

Oh! OH!!! It's a PSP!!! My very own! Oh wow! Thank you, Zorropirate! Thank you so much!!! I love it!!

Juno pointed out that I got a Santa present. And rather than the lump of coal I was expecting, for having punched an Elf on the Shelf, I got a beautiful little glass horse! There was a note that said "Dear Miranda, Punching people is naughty. But defending your friends is nice. So let's call this one even.  Love, Santa "

Which is way awesome.

I asked Juno what she got from Santa, and she just seemed confused. She said it was a lot of legalese looking papers, something about a "ground-breaking" in late Spring and "historic significance". There was also a book on "Painted Lady" houses and a building permit. And I was confused too until she looked up at me and said...

"Miranda, what's a 'Lace House'?"

Oooh boy. I'll guess I won't have her as a roommate for all THAT long. Santa gave her a Lace House!!!

Anyway, now we're off to get ready to head over to Devika's for Christmas there too! Hope you have a very Merry Christmas and got everything you wanted from Santa!

Thank you so much Lori and Zorropirate. You guys are the best.

  1. Great presents, Miranda and Juno! That Lace House is absolutely gorgeous!!! xo Jennifer

  2. Hello from Spain: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Nice pictures. Miranda and Juno have some very nice gifts. Keep in touch

  3. Wow Juno! You are one lucky girl! I don't think my Ma would have the patience to build one of those.

  4. Merry Christmas!

    Sounds like they both got some pretty awesome gifts! Santa is very wise, isn't he?:o)

  5. Ooo! A big congrats to Juno on her major Santa pressie! Wow!

    Go Miranda! That Elf on the Shelf was annoying!

  6. Miri, Santa isn't all bad after all, it's just that *&%# elf!! So glad you got some gifts and that PSP is incredible. My Guardian wants one, but as she got a PS3 from the Man, that's better, but me, I like the little DS Lite we play. We just can't find one for me. Know where we could get one? Or a PSP and then the Guardian would be so green. *ggg*
    Juno's Lace House would be my own dream house if I didn't already have a two room cottage. It is so beautiful. I'm so happy for you both.

  7. You guys got some cool presents! We were going to take some pics of some of ours today, but our person was lazy and knitted all day. At least she was making stuff for us and we all watched Dr. Who.
