Merry Christmas!

Tonight, the festivities begin. Fish. That’s what we eat tonight. Fish, fish and MORE fish. Then, we will eat the leftover fish along with our turkey tomorrow, plus some new fish that Nanna will cook. We will then eat leftover fish for the next three days, together with our leftover turkey. Good times.

Tomorrow is the BESTEST day of the year! We get together with family (and this year will be the first year that we will ALL be together for Christmas dinner. Fourteen of us…Mark, the girls, my Mom, Hubster’s Mom, Joe’s sister and her family and us. YIPPEE!! We thank God for all he has given us, we eat, we reminisce, we eat, we open gifts, we eat and then we eat some more.

I think I am worse than the kids when it comes to the excitement of it all. I can’t WAIT to see their faces when they open all of the ROCKING gifts I painstakingly bought and wrapped for them. I don’t even think they will notice that the first few gifts I wrapped are all Martha Stewart-like with perfectly square corners and gorgeous homemade ribbons, and then the gifts slowly deterioriate to Congo the Ape-like with holes in the wrapping paper and no bows to speak of. The last few Santa gifts don’t even have tags…just an “F” for Boy Oneder and an “N” for Middleman, written ever so tiny on the back side of the tape. Sigh. Who cares…they rip those suckers open faster than I can say, “Merry Christmas!” anyway.

Merry Christmas to all my readers. To my dear old friends, to my new friends, to my aquaintances and to those who “read me” and have never come forward. May your Christmas be full of love, happiness, warmth and peace. Pin It
