The Day After Christmas...


Well, we had ourselves a Merry Little Christmas. Now today I have to go back to work. This is the first time ever that I have had to work during Christmas week. I think I'll go in from 9am-3pm. There isn't much of anything going on today. The kitchen has almost recovered from yesterday's dinner. I'm looking forward to a little relaxation to be honest. I love Christmas, but after 2 big dinners, baking and cleaning up, I could use a little quiet time. Everyone was happy with their gifts this year, nothing is being exchanged or returned. We called everyone yesterday that we should have and had a lovely late evening at Tim's Aunt's house with all of his extended family. Whew! I made it through Christmas!!

Glad you had a wonderful Christmas! Blake had to go back to work today too which he usually doesn't do either. He's saving his vacation days for when Olivia gets home!

By the way, I've enjoyed all of your blog Christmas decorations!

Yes, I am glad it's over and that my crew was happy with their gifts. Santa did well and now needs a nap.

Amen! Looking forward to getting back to normal--next week. Mike has this week off also. It is a lot of build-up and it's over oh so quick. I loved every minute. Glad your day went well and wish the best for your week.

I felt the same way.. "Whew, we made it" Sometimes I think it's sad to feel that way but this past year has been very bittersweet for us. I'm looking forward to a better 2008
