Christmas Wrap(up) '08

We had another quiet Christmas Eve. I worked until 7:30pm, had tomato soup for dinner and we watched a movie that we all enjoyed.

Christmas day started with opening some gifts...tickets to see Robin Williams when he comes to town in March, a GPS for Cape Cod Kid, who inherited his mother's sense of direction, and obscene amounts of chocolate.

Then we consumed the Annual Holiday Monkey Bread and the Annual Bacon and Eggs Breakfast. Later in the day was Turkey, Baked Potatoes and that Green Bean Casserole made from canned ingredients, that is always requested by the kids.

Friday night we had a visit from Sister-In-Law Sunshine and her family, visiting from Atlanta.
Saturday morning I woke up to two little redheaded dudes who were VERY HUNGRY. S6 (HAPPY 6th BIRTHDAY TODAY!!) and T3 requested pancakes.
T3 INSISTED that today would be the day he was old enough to drink coffee. We let him try a little sip and he decided he DOES NOT LIKE COFFEE.

While I cooked, I was serenaded by T3, who sang Frosty the Snowman, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town and You Are My Sunshine (and my little heart melted).
S6 borrowed my cast of Rudolph and re-enacted some scenes for me. He informed me that my cat was fatter than his cat, but his cat was taller than my cat. He caught his cousin saying TWO BAD WORDS.....stupid and dumb.

Later today there's a party at the beach, so their family can see all their Florida friends and have a birthday party for S6.

Not a lot of Holiday Hoopla but still a Happy Holiday.

It sounds like a lot of fun -- especially having little guys around to keep everyone entertained and delighted.

...must look up Monkey Bread.

Oh yes ... I have a vague recollection of when the bad words were stupid and dumb. Try to hold onto that moment. The words are much more hurtful when they're older.

It's fun to have the littl ones around . . . for a while.

Aw, sounds like a good day! We also do monkey bread on Christmas morning. It's an easy way to start things off;)
