Holiday Mayhem

Posted Tuesday, December 28, 2010 by Kally83
The word exhausted barely even begins to cover it!! I thoroughly enjoy the holidays but I can’t say I’m ever disappointed to see them leave. We have one more big family shin dig on New Year’s Day and then we can finally just hunker down for the winter.

I’ve missed you all. I finally sat down and started catching up a bit with the blogs I follow. I was so sorry to miss the Longest Night Masquerade Ball. Yule was very simple this year as I was too busy planning and preparing for Bean’s baptism (do you sense the irony???). We did enjoy ‘breakfast for dinner’ and performed a small family ritual. We also made Hot Buttered Rum (minus the rum so Munchkin could drink some). The days until Christmas were busy cooking and baking with a little last minute shopping and wrapping thrown in for good measure. We spent Christmas Eve day tracking Santa’s route and then spent Christmas Eve with my family. We were so excited to have my daddy home!! We came back to our place that evening and woke up in the morning to lots of lovely gifts under the tree. The boys enjoyed opening their presents and then we got dressed and headed to my in-laws for their family Christmas. We left Munchkin there overnight and came home to prepare for Bean’s baptism on Boxing Day. Bean was baptized Sunday afternoon and we went back to my parents for munchies and presents afterwards. We’ve been vegging ever since! This week will be a quiet one so we can recoup a little!!

How were all of your holidays?

    Busy too. So many things here too. Although I love each and every moment with family, I will be glad when things settle. Hugs and sparkles and Happy New Year wishes - WG
