Oh boy, laundry is going, decorations are coming down, house looks like it blew up & I'm tired already! Darling daughter is home from school & needs my assistance every few moments so this is going to be short...
We stayed home Christmas morning which is something I've NEVER done, well only once, till this year! The only Christmas I stayed home as a child was in 1976 & that's because my youngest brother was being born during lunch on Christmas day. Our family is out of state & that means lots of travel, funny how we were the only ones that did the traveling... anywhooooo- We got to stay home Christmas morning & isn't Christmas morning so much fun with a little one in the house?
Who is the happiest girl in the world with her new DS?
some of the aftermath:
a little breakfast & a little rubiks cube!
We kept mixing it just a little & she could get it back but then the Mister really twisted it up & she yells "Dad, now you got it all mixed up, it's ruined". I don't think she believed me that there are some out there that can fix it after it's "ruined".
Ewwww, look what I let her eat!! Glow in the dark cereal, not something I usually allow, especially since the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd ingredient is SUGAR!
We opened presents, yelled at the dog, threw the paper in the recycle bag & then we did travel... less than 2 hours to my parents-not bad!
This Christmas was different... my Grandma is in a nursing home, my yougest brother is in MT, & my cousins were getting together with the other side of their family - so it was just my middle brother, my parents & the 3 of us. My brothers girlfriend had to hang with her family so she couldn't come either & it's really too bad cause this is the 1st girlfriend of his I've REALLY liked. I even made her a granny square scarf... sadly, there are NO pictures! What is wrong with me?
We got to my parents around NOON & isn't that the best time to arrive?
My mom's pretty table with the napkins provided by moi'!
Given to me by a friend that knows me too well!!
mom & dads tree loaded with ornaments that are from years & years ago! I guess i should have taken pictures... one is the ornament from my grandparents 1st Christmas tree & another one my dad made in 1st grade!
I think this is a sight we're going to be seeing a LOT!
Ok, I know this wasn't that interesting, but isn't it hard when life gets in the way of blogging?!
So did you get a FANTASTIC gift this year? Please, you have my permission to brag, you don't have to say "family time", you can tell me what it really was like: a white Range Rover! AND... if you got that, it was suppose to be MINE, so bring it BACK!!!
I'll try & grab a picture of my greediness today & share gifts tomorrow!
Ok, let's hear about your goods!!!
