My Christmas festivities went pretty much as I predicted they would. On Christmas Eve we had a house full of family and friends and it was wonderful. I never saw 6 pounds of Swedish meatballs and 3 dozen deviled eggs disappear so fast in all my life! If only they had eaten all the cookies, too!
Christmas Day was relaxing and lazy, a far different experience from when we had small kids at home. These days we don’t even start opening until 11 or later and that’s fine with me. We all played with the Wii a bit and then headed for Dale’s brother’s house for a delicious Christmas dinner and more Wii playing. Seeing my 83 year old father-in-law flying an airplane in the Wii Resorts game was a terrific addition to the day!
I really did stay in my pajamas all day on Saturday. We had talked about going to the movies but I was just feeling too relaxed and too lazy so it was TV and Wii and leftovers. Ahhh.
And then on Sunday (don’t you love when Christmas fall on a Friday) we hung around, played some more with the Wii and then went to see the movie The Blind Side. It was fantastic! Excellent social commentary, great acting from Sandra Bullock and really shouldn’t be missed. It was a great way end to our Christmas weekend.
Now it’s Monday and that means back to work but at least it’s another short week. Yippee!
