I spent all day yesterday getting the house back in order and slowly but surely, getting into my normal routine again…..but not for long, we are leaving Wednesday for Cape Cod……at least I hope we are this time!! Since we don’t get to see the “Gaelic” side of the family for Christmas, we always spend New Year’s with them……so really, we are just getting prepared for round two!! I wish I could say the after holiday diet has started, but with more family celebrations this week, I am holding off…it will make a perfect New Year’s resolution…especially with the bahamas trip just around the corner:)
Yesterday, I went through all the pictures that were taken over the past week and tried to figure out how to post them without having TOO many pictures attached to the post, so I decided I would do them as a slide show!!
The pics consist of Chrstmas Eve at my Aunt’s house, Christmas Day at our house, Christmas night at my sisters house for the Yankee Swap, the day after Christmas at a local ski resort, and just some random shots of us haning out here at the house.
The Yankee Swap pictures are pretty funny…..they are near the end of the slide show….they are not very clear because they were taken in my sister’s basement and it was kind of dark, but I had to capture some of the funny things that were passed around. There was a homemade a Blue Sparkle Lamp, a sexy pair of Santa Boxers with matching hat, and a Turbie Twist…..I think they sold them on one of the shopping networks…they are used to tie your hair up after a shower so it dries faster……you will have to see for yourself the pictures are hilarious…..I think the pic of Pat wearing the Turbie is my favorite. We had so much fun playing, that this swap is now going to be a Christmas tradition in our family!! Just for the record, Pat won the Turbie and I walked away with the sexy Santa outfit….we made quite a pair that night!!
Hope you are all recovering from Christmas and getting ready to ring in the New Year.
