Three weeks have gone. I was hoping to write all about our Christmas adventures before it was officially next year. Well, following in my usual blogging-slacker tradition, I present you with 2012 Christmas Recap in 2013.
This Christmas was insane. Insane fun. Insane busy. Insane food. Insane sick. Insane messy. All of it, insane. My brother and his family came to stay with us (from Tennessee). On Christmas Eve we had 15 people sleeping here and 19 on Christmas Day. I wish the whole family was represented. We missed Jeremy, Natalie, and Evangeline. Family count is 24, soon to be 25 in April. Sheesh! Our activities included, but weren’t limited to:
4 Christmas performances at church
Riding the Monorail
Baking Christmas cookies
3 Christmas celebrations
Several doses of Nyquil
Getting a quarter of the way through White Christmas
Dollar Store gifts
So there you have it. I’m still working on recovering from it all. Still finding left behind items. Looking forward to a new year of great memories and breaking resolutions within the first week!
