T'was the Day After Christmas


Look at this poor tired Santa, asleep in his cocoa -- I feel about like this right now.

We had a great Christmas. Like I mentioned, we headed up to Logan on Sunday, and we spent Monday and Tuesday here at home. Monday, we cleaned the house and I made a cheesy Italian pie for dinner, which is a pie crust, then a layer of cottage cheese, Parmesan, and egg, then a layer of meat, spinach, and marinara sauce, then topped with another crust. We had a nice salad with that, and finished up with apple pie, pumpkin roll, and egg nog -- just a little for each; we don't like to feed the kids too much sugar right before telling them to go to bed early. It just doesn't work.

My mom came over and spent the night. We watched "White Christmas" while waiting for the kids to go to sleep, then we brought out the presents and stuffed the socks. The kids had a wonderful Christmas morning, and, thanks to the wish list on Amazon, I got pretty much what I wanted, too. I also got a really long nap -- thanks to my sweet hubby.

This morning we totally scored. Macey's, yeah, the grocery store, has nice digital cameras for $89.00. Hubby headed over before work and picked one up. We've been wanting one for years -- we really like the idea of only printing out the pictures we want and not having to develop a whole roll of film, only half of which is worth saving. But we didn't want to pay a lot of money. Presto -- good camera, good price.

The best part was the spirit of peace in the home. The kids were too busy playing to fight, and we had a nice, restful day.

I hope each of you had a Merry Christmas as well, full of love and joy.

Merry Christmas Tristi!

We had a very relaxing and restful day as well - no fighting cause, like you said, the kids were all too busy playing with their new toys. We all had a wonderful day spending time together and talking. I'm glad your day was just as fantastic as ours.

Great deal on the camera too. I thought of you today when I had to venture out to Walmart-I figured you would be out hitting the great after Christmas sales!
