I hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas weekend. My celebrations this year are spread out. Dad works over nights Wed-Fri and every other Saturday. We’ve gotten used to working around his work schedule and having our holiday celebrations on a day other than the day of.
So this year I spent Christmas Eve with J and his parents. We had ham, green beans, rolls and this hashbrown casserole thing that was dangerously delicious! Gifts were opened and his parents gave me one of the best gifts I have ever recieved. They did a donation in my name to the National MS Society. I almost started crying I was so moved.
Christmas day was spent with some friends. We headed to one friends house to watch their kids open gifts and it was so much fun! They have 4 daughters ranging in age from 2 to 15. The 2 year old opened her presents one strip of paper at a time. The others tore into them.
We also went and visted other friends and hung out with them for a bit. I got to see puppies! Their mini-daschund got their Pitbull pregnant. I’m sure once the puppies grow up a bit more they might look pretty funny. But for now, they’re dang cute! Anyone want a puppy?
Friday afternoon we lounged on the couch and watched The Proposal, pretty cute movie. After the movie we headed to our local bowling alley for the second year. We had a great time bowling with friends, and I somehow managed to beat EVERYONE for our first game! That 142, that was MY score! I NEVER score that high! And the 113 belonged to my friend who said she’s lucky if she can break 60 normally. Her husband got the 97 and J got 121.
Tomorrow wraps up our Christmas celebrations. We’ll be going to my parents for dinner and gifts. As much as I’m looking foward to it, I also don’t want it to happen. Only because that means I have to go back to work on Monday. I’ve had a nice long weekend, it’ll be a total of 4 days with NO work at all! No part time job, no full time job. I’m not eager to go back to the real world 🙂 But I am looking forward to dinner with the family. We’ll have turkey, maybe ham (yum!), mashed potatoes, stuffing, vegetables, rolls. And of course dessert and cookies! Can’t forget the Christmas cookies! Yum! I think I’ll head to bed so that visions of Mom’s cookies will dance in my head. Have a good night! And for those who traveled this weekend I hope you all had a safe trip to wherever.
