And a merry Cab and one or two merry little Sangria's, there may have been a Jack or two and I think a Heineken showed up for the party somewhere!!!!!While I have been gone from the Blogosphere I have been whooping it up with family and friends... and guess what... we had a fabulous time!!!! The in laws showed up on Christmas Eve and we had a nice dinner and hung out for a while, we opened one present each.... pj's, an idea stolen from Tori at Not in Kalamazoo Anymore... and that will be done forever more in our household... loved it!!!! We all looked so festive going to bed that night!!
Christmas morning was an early one, Ash woke the house up at about four thirty am. We got up and opened presents, then of course I went back to bed... not a morning person, remember? Then hubby made a fabulous breakfast and we all had a relaxed time eating and talking and catching up with his parents. Late morning we started making dinner.... turkey in the crock pot... love it!!! Ham in the oven, whipped up a couple of casserols and tah dah.... it was ready... of course the Aunt and Uncle coming in from the Gulf Coast were late but no biggie... we ate almost as soon as they arrived. Everything went really well.... I mentally patted myself on the back and had another glass of wine....and another and just one more....
In the afternoon I managed to get my sissy and nephew on Skype for a Video Call... she was pretty sloshed... it was really fun!!! That will have to be a tradition now too. Not that I'm gonna wait to have the vid call but it will deffo be a part of Christmas day every year from now on. Of course there was much hilarity with the Wii later in the evening before everyone called it a night.
So Sat morning was a rush to get ready and packed for a sleep over in Tampa for the night... we were having the family "shin dig" at Grannies house in the afternoon.... another opportunity to catch up with the rest of the family and get drunk!!! As always we had a lot of fun, my SIL is a big fan of my blog.... she has impecable taste!!!! and she follows Otin too so!!! told you she has good taste. We had such a good time, there are pictures... but I'm saving them for a real post... this is just a catch up!!
Anyhoodles... we went back to the hotel later, watched The Wedding Planner and fell asleep... nice beds at the Hilton.. not bad... although I have some kind of sinus thing going on that means I am snoring like a freakin' dinosaur and I'm sure I kept the whole of Tampa awake last night. There was even a report on the local new about some supernatural occurance that they were investingating.
So there you have it .... I'm tired, happy and glad it all went well. That's if for another year, just gotta get through New Years and we're home free!!!! Missed y'all.. hope you're Christmas was as lovely as mine and that you had the best of the best!!!!!!
