Toothaches and Boxers: A Fisher Christmas Story

Once again Christmas has come and gone, it always seems to go by way too fast. But it was wonderful. This year Mike and I had Christmas morning with just the two of us. It was very nice I really enjoyed spending that time with Mike and starting our own Christmas traditions. And yet at the same time it was a little weird because I have never had a Christmas morning that was so quiet. But after breakfast we were off to Mike's parent's house to spend the rest of Christmas day with his family. We had a lot of fun and ate way too much delicious food.

This was Mike's first year filling a stocking I don't know if he fully got it. Whatever it was an awesome stocking "stuffer"

Christmas Pirate Before all the tooth business

Sadly, during the games Mike got a really bad toothache. I felt so bad for him because he pretty much shut down due to the pain. Luckily we were able to get him into a dentist on Boxing Day. Where we found out he needed to have his tooth pulled and that he has a few more that are on their way to being pulled as well. But thanks to the delightful world of dentistry and the fact that we have great health insurance, his teeth will be saved!  I’m so glad because I don’t think having dentures at the age of 26 would be a good look for Mike.

 To end on a more positive note, Mike got me a sewing machine for Christmas something that I have been wanting for a while so I was really happy / excited he got it for me.  Funny story, many months ago when I first talked to Mike about getting a sewing machine he was like “No, you have your camera” “You have too many hobbies” blah blah. I actually agreed with him! Thinking… “yea, I do have my camera and I wanted that way more than a sewing machine and I really want to be knitting more so yea, I don’t need a sewing machine” Silly Me!! Mike was being sneaky! The whole  thinking “That’s what I’ll get Elva for Christmas” That Sneaky Devil! That’s one of the reasons why I love him.

So now that I have this wonderful machine I just had to make something. I decided on boxers for Mike. Since I did make a pair way back in grade 9 I thought it won’t be too hard. I used a free pattern I found on line (See Here) I had a few hiccups along the way but overall they pretty easy to make. I must say I was pretty proud of myself, till Mike tried them on…they were too small! Sad Day. Oh well I’ll just have to try again good thing they don’t take long to make. I’m hoping that just by adding an inch or so around the whole pattern it will fix the problem. We’ll see, so if any sewers out there wanted to give me a few pointers feel free.

I hope all of you had a very Merry Christmas!
