Christmas Round-Up Part 1

It's hard to believe Christmas is over already! With all the commercials and music on the radio and the huge sales, most of us can't wait til the day arrives and when it's over, it always seems like it went by too fast.
Luckily, I had a very good Christmas yesterday. My parents, sister and I always spend the day with just the four of us and I like it that way. We don't rush to wake up and tear open the presents so we had a nice long breakfast and opened our stockings and then got dressed before we opened our gifts.
I got quite a few great things, including a sweater from Abercrombie & Fitch, grey Bearpaw boots, sparkly blue tights and a nice necklace from American Eagle. I also got a gift card to AE for $50 and I'm looking forward to a day of shopping later this week. I'll post all the pics of my new stuff soon. But my best gift would have to be the iPod Touch 4th generation! I've wanted it since my sister bought the 3rd gen for herself over the summer but the 4th gen is even better since it has a camera and a FaceTime app, which is similar to Skype. My mom's planning on getting a Touch, too, so she can FaceTime me when I'm away at school.
Hopefully I can take some good pictures with it and it'll be easy to use on the go, instead of having to take all my outfit shots at home.
After the presents were opened, we watched part of the "A Christmas Story" 24-hour marathon on TBS (favorite Christmas movie ever!) and then my dad, sister and I took a walk around the neighborhood while my mom made dinner. It was quite chilly but there was no snow so it was a refreshing walk. After dinner, we played a ridiculously fun game called Quelf and then had a pretty quiet rest of the night. It was a really good day.
Did you have a good Christmas? What made yours special? Did you give or get a really nice present? Tell me all about it!
