ttI realized last night that I got to open ONE present on Christmas. It’s all about the kids, but it is nice to have presents to open. My husband got me a bottle of sugar free pancake syrup (I’m weird and don’t like maple syrup – or all the sugar!).  It was thoughtful but I really wish he had a little more thought than wrapping up something he got me from the grocery store! One year, before we were married, he bought me a bunch of gifts and I didn’t like all of them, but I loved them!  Because he took the time to pick them out for me.  Sigh. men!

Otherwise this week was all about dad and fun with subscription boxes. We only have one more week, and then it will be time to go back home.

The kids did a Kiwi Crate with Daddy. I did a ton of Kiwi Crate reviews this month, so I’m not blogging it, but it was awesome and fun as usual! And then they went crazy!

Mustaches were made.

And additional face art. Daddy thought this was a great use for the oil pastels in the crate.

Daddy didn’t really think this one through so much, as he had to go to work the next day…

A & I did some ice cube experiments from Kiwi Crate and she was totally shocked by the results (the insulated ice cube melted more slowly than the uninsulated one).

Then E & I reused a box and he was so thrilled by the results! He is storing his Hot Wheels in it!

Are we the only people in the world who haven’t seen “What the Fox Says” video by Ylvis? We can’t stop singing this song now! If you haven’t, it’s pretty much a must-watch! We looked it up after the last Glee episode and have been watching it over and over. They’re so damned earnest about it. It’s hilarious. We watched all the Ylvis videos.

I didn’t really make any huge New Year’s resolutions or anything, but I did make a bucket list! And a list of subscriptions for the New Year. The main thing I want to accomplish this year is… getting my eyes done. As in Lasik. I’m kind of tired of being blind. I’ll probably do it when I go home to Florida this summer. I think my eyes are stable enough now. My prescription changed a bunch in my late 20s (got worse) and I had to put off my dreams of wearing regular sunglasses. Even if I do need glasses afterwards, I think I’ll be able to see everything. I can’t even see the digits on an LED clock!

I am not really getting down to New Year’s Resolution business until I go home. I’m still on vacation 🙂

I’m linking up with Thursday Thoughts with Jennifer!

    I can’t believe that you are only just now hearing about ‘What Does the Fox Say?’. SNL did a funny parody of it called ‘What Does My Girl Say?’ My husband and I quote that one more. :-p

    Um, syrup, really??? Lolololol

    And LASIK – do it. My contacts were something crazy, like -8, and I had worn glasses since I was 5. LASIK was like a miracle, just opening my eyes in the morning and being able to SEE! I had it maybe like 10 years ago and so far, so good! Only piece of advice, don’t go to one of those places that advertise $499 deals like they do all over Louisville! Haha!

      well, he had bought the syrup for me at the store. then he wrapped it. it WAS actually thoughtful, because i really *don’t* like maple syrup. but he can do better than last minute. i understand i am impossible to shop for, but…. step up the game sweetheart!

      i gotta get the lasik done. i have a thing about my eyes (they can’t be replaced!) so i would definitely not do a cheapy one. however, i will probably head home for it. much less spendy in florida for top medical care!

    I love your Bucket List. They are all so great.
    I’ve seen the Fox song awhile ago. It is so addictive and my boys love it. Randomly I’ll bust out What does the Fox say and we all meet in the kitchen for a dance party. My hubby thinks its hysterical. LOL

    I had lasik a little over 6 years ago. I’m back in glasses again, but at least I can see more than I did. It was a great run.. Sigh..
    Also, I love your redesign. Very stylish.

      Yeah I don’t really expect to be glasses free. I still wonder if I should hold out for some bionic technology?? :). I am -500, -525. Somewhere near “still functionL without glasses even if I can’t drive” would be great!! And thanks! I love it too! Still some tweaking on the list but I am so happy with it!
