We had a lovely Christmas here. The kids both received things they adore. Sissy had been asking for a soccer ball for months and Santa brought one for her. She ran up and down the hallway in her night gown and Crocs for a long time kicking it about.
When I was pregnant with her, she was SO kicky, the Evil Twin used to joke about her being the next Mia Hamm (soccer pro). Perhaps he is right on the money!
We decided that, instead of the typical traditional Christmas feast, we would just order Chinese take out. It was great. We all ate way too much. Afterwards, we all had a fortune cookie. Sissy had the best one. Her fortune (and I kid you not) says, "Be patient! The Great Wall didn't got build in one day." Engrish anyone?
Anyway, Buddy and Sissy had plenty of gifts:
Then, Santa left his gifts (he always leaves them unwrapped here, so the kids know what he brought from what other gifts have been given):
My brother, sister in law and our niece and nephew came over for a bit yesterday. Our niece will be 5 in June and our nephew is only three weeks younger than Sissy, so all the kids had a good time. It was nice to see them again - they live about 2 hours away and rarely get to come this direction.
Then, my best friend came over last night. He and I commenced to drinking - as usual. Of course, he said he couldn't live on just oxygen alone. I tried to send his boyfriend a picture, but I don't think it went thru.
Oh well, I'll share it here and you can consider it a belated Christmas gift from me to you.
Now, what did you get ME?
