Happy Post-Christmas

Christmas was fun and relaxing, just like it should be. We went over to Jenny's parents' place around noon or so, opened presents, and then sat down for Christmas dinner - her mom cooked a pot roast. After dinner we watched The Dark Knight on her parents' big screen TV, and later we also watched Hellboy 2, which neither of us had actually got around to seeing before. Aunt Joan works at the hospital, so she was working in the morning, but she came over after dinner and opened her presents and hung out for a while.

We got a lot of really cool stuff - books and movies, puzzles and games, clothes, art and craft supplies and some gift cards and cash. Jenny even got some potting soil and new pots from our friend Tigger, which she was excited about (some of her plants really need to be re-potted, and she's been in desperate need of dirt to do so). And easily my coolest present was an actual toy that Jenny gave me - a battery powered, fully automatic, Nerf machine gun:

Tigger got Lincoln and his son each one as well, so when the snow melts and we have room to run around, we'll probably be shooting each other a lot... And after doing some looking on-line for extra parts for it, I've been introduced to the wide world of Nerf gun modification. Now I'm trying to figure out how I can customize my Nerf gun to look more like a heavy bolter from the Warhammer 40,000 miniatures game, so something like this:

We also got a web cam/mic from Jenny's dad, so we're going to go ahead and sign up for Skype in the next couple of days after we get around to getting the webcam set up. So if anyone else is on Skype and uses it, let me know so I can add you to our contacts.
