It's over...almost.

Christmas has been a whirlwind of activity. Holy cow.

After our great Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, we spent our Boxing Day afternoon with BIL and Patricia and their clan. We had a lovely turkey dinner and stuffed ourselves silly. The kids (all nine of them) had a blast playing together and the adults had some great chat time. I have lots of pics to share, but my feet are too tired to walk to the hallway to get my camera, so they will have to be uploaded tomorrow.

Yesterday was neighbs day at our house. At 4:00, alllll of the clan of neighbs were invited over for drinks. All together, there are 29 of us, but some were sick and couldn't come. It seems EVERYONE has been sick this Christmas. :o( Anyway, we missed those who couldn't come, but the 18 of us who were here had a great time. What was supposed to be a quick get together for an hour or two ended up being 7 hours of fun. We had tons of snacks and cookies and ended up ordering two party sized pizzas at 9:30, which were DEVOURED before the boxes hit the table. LOL. Good, good times.

Today was MY Christmas dinner. I cooked up a turkey with all the fixins' and our dear friends, Kath and Bru and their great daughters joined us. We ate like pigs and then played a game of "Wits and Wagers" that they had brought with them...what a GREAT game! We always, ALWAYS have a good time with Kathy and Bruno...they are like sister and brother to us.

Threepeat has been out of sorts for a week now. After the initial three day fever, he has had a minor cough, but he hasn't (until today) eaten much more than a bite or two of every meal. Today, he turned the corner appetite-wise and had two pieces of toast for breakfast, two healthy portions of turkey dinner for lunch/dinner, popcorn, an apple and three cookies. BUT...he is still cranky, whiny, fussy and just plain miserable. For the last three days, he has disappeared into the family room, and promptly fallen asleep on the couch for two hours. I hope today is the last day of the miserable Threepeat and that tomorrow, preschool will bring back my happy little man!

We haven't had our Christmas with Hubster's sister and family yet because the boys have been sick and we can't take the chance that Mike, our BIL, who is suffering from lung cancer, would catch anything from the kids. They are coming over on Sunday for our Christmas dinner with them. I guess it will end up being a Christmas/New Year's dinner!

Tonight, Boy Oneder and Hubster are at hockey practice and this is the first time I have sat down on the couch in 4 days. I haven't even worked in my new Ipad yet!!!

Work tomorrow...as much as it's nice to have four days off, I must admit, I am looking forward to a bit of a routine again...I am wiped OUT! Pin It
