Best and Worst Christmas Gifts

Because creativity is a category (obviously) this goes to my parents. Remember this blog post? (Nine things my toddler wants for Christmas).

Well my parents decided to get Olivia all of that. 


Hysterical right?

The first gift I opened was the spoon and I thought I was going to have to send them to the looney bin sooner than anticipated.

They found an alarm clock that cries like a baby.

And my mom even took my dog out to brush her one day to wrap up the hair. 

At least we got some sweet Jack Daniels out of the deal? And Olivia loves her laptop mroe than we ever thought!

Worst gift? It goes to my parents. Sorry guys.

The gift that I keep incorrectly referring to as the Chillscicle. 

The Chillsner.

You freeze it, keep it in your beer and still drink through the top. Genius. However, when I went to put it in the Hoegaarden, a fav beer around here, it almost fit, but not quite. So, like a genius, I decided to hammer it in. The beer shot up like a geyser, drenching our kitchen. Whoops.

Once it was fully in, and half my Hoegaarden on the ceiling and down the kitchen cabinets, I realized it's just about half an inch too long. If I tried to drink out of it, it would kind of pour out the side. I thought we were going to have to break the bottle to get the Chillscicle out. 

It gets great reviews, so we are going to press on and try it with different beer bottles. But keep in mind, the Chillscicle and the Hoegaarden aren't friends.

Note: These weren't actually the best and worst Christmas gifts received. I just didn't have a better title.

    1. Haha - our poor dog is pretty tolerant though. The main issue is her taking it when it's still attached to the dog!

    1. Haha - I was a little concerned with the spoon. Having helped wash dishes after Christmas dinner, I knew it was a spoon from their silverware drawer.

  5. That is funny!! So creative and that baby alarm clock sounds like a torture device. I bet it guarantees a grumpy mood when it goes off. What did you think of Taylor's new cd?? I enjoy it, but my hubby says all the songs sound the same. Your beer story is a good one. I hope you get the Chillsner figured out because it sounds like a fun thing.

    1. Hahaha, I'd be in such a miserable mood if that was my alarm clock. I haven't had much of a chance to listen to the CD because Olivia's new game is called 'cry when shake it off is over until mom plays it again.' I like a couple, but I'm not sure there are many winners except the ones already out on the radio. But again, I haven't heard it but once.
