Some Christmas stuff...  
I got some pretty nice gifts for Christmas, but one in particular that arrived in the mail on Christmas Eve is hard to top:

Try to ignore the fact that I look drugged or something, LOL. Just focus on the gorgeous man next to me. :D
The funny thing is I had emailed Chris at Creation the day before asking about the photos.  Then I headed over to GW and one gal who had the same problem said she'd heard from him, and to tell everyone at GW that their photos will be arriving shortly (something about him doing three different shows at once and he got behind).  I'm just glad that it arrived.  But wow, what timing. *grins*

Anyway, I had a nice Christmas with my family.  On Christmas Eve we went to mass at 4pm, then got some dinner at a nice restaurant/pub called E.B Elliot's.  It's on a seaside strip called The Nautical Mile.  Nice views and the food was good.  The weather wasn't too bad either.  No snow, and not very cold.  Needless to say we didn't have a white Christmas.  It was quite bright out and around 45 F.

Among the gifts I received were a few sweaters, pairs of socks and a pair of gloves.  On DVD I got Doctor Who series 3 and Ghost Hunters season 3 part 1. Got a couple of jazz CD's, ghost hunting book by Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson (from GH), the Supernatural novel "Witch's Canyon"...  um a couple of calendars as well - for my desk at work one with tropical seascapes and for home a Supernatural calendar.  Also got a pack of blank DVD-R discs and a 4GB pen drive for my computer.

Spent Christmas day with my parents, grandmother and uncle.  It was a nice, quiet day for the most part.  I do have some pics to share from Christmas morning... hope I am doing this right:

Pics 1-3: my beagle Penny getting presents out of her stocking
Pics 4-8: Penny at the tree being nosy (pic 5 has me and my mom)
Pics 9-10: lying around... the Santa hat my mom got for her back when she was a puppy.

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas. :)

Aw thanks, Deeds! *grin* It was quite a pressie indeed. Want to hear something funny... I didn't even realize at the time that he'd held up the drawing for the camera. I must have been so starstruck at the time, LOL. But it was a lovely surprise! He was quite darling there, very appreciative. :)

Thank you again! :) She is a sweetie most of the time. She's 11 going on 12 and can be a bit grouchy at times, but she had the Xmas spirit in her yesterday.

I'm looking forward to seeing your pics! It sounds like you had a nice Xmas as well... I'm glad to hear it!

Awesome picture Jess! And he's not wearing a cap! OMG!

Penny is so cute!

Thanks! LOL, I know, I was in shock when I saw him going down to the breakfast without the cap. When his Q&A started, someone in the front yelled out "you did your hair!" or something like that. Was glad I finally got a decent photo op with him. :)

Aw thanks! It's not often I can get her to pose for pics. She's all over the place, into everything, but my luck was holding out yesterday!

Hope you had a nice Christmas!

Lovely photo! He looks good with longer hair. :)

Awww, Penny is adorable! Glad you had a wonderful Christmas, Jess! *huggles*
jessm78: Sethjessm78 on December 26th, 2007 09:53 pm (UTC)
Thanks! :) He does, doesn't he? I love the longer hair, even if it was a bit unruly for this con. *giggles*

Aw thanks again! I was glad she posed for me, it's not easy to do most of the time, lol. *huggles back*

Merry Christmas, Jess! Glad you had a great one :) Penny is too cute! Especially with her little Santa hat on! And it sounds like you did really well for Christmas- that was a nice haul! Not to mention that wonderful pic with Michael Shanks, you lucky gal, you! Thanks for sharing all the pics!
jessm78jessm78 on December 27th, 2007 04:23 am (UTC)
Thanks, Beth! Right backatcha. :) Hope you guys had a nice one too! I was glad Penny sat still long enough for me to get some pictures of her, especially that she kept the hat on as long as she did, lol.

You're welcome - I have to say it was interesting timing receiving the photo op on Christmas Eve. I'm glad it came, though. I was starting to get worried!

Again I hope you had a nice Christmas! :)

Eeeep! ::huggles you:: You DO DO NOT LOOK DRUGGED in that pic, you look adorable! & so does Michael, of course! ::sighs:: I love the way he's got his arm around you - it's so cute!

It sounds like you had a fabulous holiday, Jess! Your doggie is looks very snuggly & sweet! & it looks like I'm not the only girl who dressed up the four-legged member of her family! ::giggles::
jessm78: Pennyjessm78 on December 28th, 2007 01:22 am (UTC)
Hee... thank ya, hon. *huggles back* I guess we are our own worst critics right? The arm... the arm of Michael... *dies again* and I had my arm around him too :D Such an improvement over the 2 miles between us in the stinkin' chairs at the 2004 con!

Aw I did! And thanks again :D She can be really cuddly when she wants to be (rest of the time she is a grouchy old lady...*tsk*). You dressed up your four-legged family member too?? Oh, do tell!! *grins* :)

Oooo, you lucky little miss! ::sighs happily:: & eeeep, his ARMS! ::flails girlishly for you::

::giggles:: Well, I picked up a reindeer outfit for my fluffy kitty & I got the ruff on him on Christmas Eve & he actually seemed to like it! However, I tried to get the hat on him TWICE & he just wouldn't have it. But I got a picture of him in full reindeer outfit before he got the hat off! :D

Awwwwwww!!!! *giggles like a madwoman* That is so kewt!! So glad you got to take a picture of him! Penny doesn't usually like dressing up. My mom once bought a Halloween costume for her - fairly princess type of thing with the large cone-shaped hat and all. *eeep* She left the hat on long enough for me to take a pic and that was it. Glad I got one pic out of it though!

Wonderful pictures. Love Michael's hair (who doesn't?) and you don't look drugged. Both of you look happy :)
And just AAAW for the dog pics - especially with the santa hat :)
jessm78jessm78 on December 28th, 2007 01:24 am (UTC)
Thanks! Yeah, I really loved his hair there. I was pretty starstruck when we had the pic taken - I guess it shows (should not have said "drugged", lol). It was great getting that close to him. It was so different when I saw him in 2004.

*grins* Glad you like them! It's not very easy getting her to pose for pictures, especially with the hat on. But I had some luck on Christmas morning. :)
