PA Trip  
Had a great time in PA. Sad to see it end so quickly.

I did very well with presents, and I am so privileged and lucky. This was the first Christmas I gave out a gift list ('cause I hadn't really mentioned much of what I was wanting). I got like everything on it. o.O

So here is what I got this Christmas:



  • Casting Crowns CD
  • $15 iTunes gift card
  • $40 Target gift card
  • $25 Ulta (makeup) gift card
  • 16 gb memory card for camera
  • Pjs
  • Satsuma Body Shop gift set :) :)
  • Dream Cream from Lush
  • Scarf & hat
  • Bunch of small goodies like lip balm, chocolate etc.
  • Wet to dry straightener (one of my fav. gifts!)
  • Hailey bought me this eyeshadow kit (apparently she saw it and thought of me? ha)


That's what I can remember so far...I probably have forgotten something.

Anddd the whole family also got a surprise trip to NYC. The night we arrived, I discovered a torn piece of paper by the Christmas tree.

It read:

Merry Christmas Mommy, Sharai, Allison, Marisa, Kierra & Hailey

You _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 7_00 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ C_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ W_ _ _ _ D_ _! E_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ You _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ 3 _ _ D_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ S_ _ _ _.


Love, Santa


Evidently, Brian had taken the time to make it look all torn and old (dyed paper with tea) and pretended to know nothing about it. On the note, it also said we could make full sentence guesses. We spent the rest of that night trying to figure the code.

I figured out the first part: "You have until 7:00..." which triggered the rest. I didn't think we'd be able to figure it out, but we actually cracked the code in the day.

And so it read:
You have until 7:00 am to get ready to go shopping in New York City for the whole day. Each one of you will get your age times 3 in dollars to spend.


"Santa" didn't indicate what day, but once we cracked it, Brian told us we'd be going on Saturday. So...I got 63 bucks to spend in the city :).

We had a lot of fun and really just shopped and ate the entire day. I took lots of photos so once I get my luggage I'll post 'em on Facebook.


shalom and love y'all

Took lots of photos, so once I get my luggage I'll post them on Facebook.
