Christmas Update, and a Personal Request

Happy Day After Christmas! (AKA- Boxing Say)

How was everybody’s Christmases? I hope wonderful! And filled with love, great family, good food and some super fun presents.

Ours was choc full of all the above. Just look at the tree, and all of those presents!

Craziness. My grandmother’s house was filled to the brim with gifts, carol singing, treats, old Christmas home movies and lots and lots of love.

So imagine my surprise when I returned to the house after Christmas Eve church to find the stockings all hung by the chimney with care…

All except one.

Yep. See the sock? That’d be my father’s.

My stocking has gone missing.

My gifts were stuffed into my dad’s stretched out sock.

Merry Christmas, indeed. 😉

All joking aside, I must admit that I myself got lots of great gifts yesterday. This lucky duck got absolutely everything she asked for, and then some. This being just one of the many, many great things I got.

Yes, that is a replica of Uncle Si’s tea cup, courtesy of my brother.

It just cracks me up!

It was indeed a wonderful Christmas, spent with people I love. 🙂

So is anyone using today to recover from holiday sweets binges or staying up too late on Christmas Eve? Normally, that’s what this lady would be doing. However, I’m a big girl now– with a big girl job. 😉 So I was back to work bright and early this morning.

Truthfully, I feel a little bit like I’m fighting through a “Holiday Hangover” today.

But I can’t be sleepy- there’s so much to do!

In a few minutes, I’m heading over to Shane’s house to celebrate my sister-in-law’s birthday. We also might be attempting a little of this action…

But I was informed that he couldn’t make my any promises.

So we’ll see if that tuns out to be the case or not.

I hope you all have a splendid Thursday evening!

 

–On a side (and very personal) note: If all of you lovely readers out there could send your good thoughts, love and prayers to my family, that would be so appreciated. I don’t want to get too detailed, but a member of our family that we love very much could use a lot of prayer right now. Truly, any support, good wishes and prayer would mean the world to me and to my family. Thank you!
