Nathan and Priscila gave me a subscription to KnitSimple.
My grandparents gave me the usual amount. I bought some knitting stuff.
Steve and Danielle gave me a super fun birthday night in the snowstorm as we Christmas-shopped for needy people. They gave me a fabulous yarn ball full of surprises, and Danielle brought out some trans-fat-free cupcakes (just when I thought all hope of a birthday cake was lost)!
My mom found a birthday cake for me, but since I live hundreds of miles away, she kept it in the freezer until we got there the day before Christmas.
I love that it's just two cupcakes covered in frosting; it makes me think I, too, could be a pretty fancy-pants cake-maker!
I used the money my parents sent me (plus 80 cents) to buy all this great stuff on Amazon.com:
- My Sweet Vegan by Hannah Kaminsky
- Amigurumi World by Ana Paula Rimoli
- A Care Bears crochet pattern book (Now Shannon and I can start causing some real trouble with the Don't Care Bears!)
- Will Smith's Greatest Hits CD
