Well, what a long and eventful holiday season it has been!!! I can't really say I'm sorry it's over, now I'm just ready for the winter to be over. Although it doesn't look like that will be happening anytime soon.......our temps are below freezing every day and there's snow at night and it's just miserable. Come summer!!!
Christmas morning I had to work until 3 pm, and after that we went to Jamie's parents for the rest of the day. We had Christmas dinner -- two turkeys and ham and stuffing and potatoes and salad and veggies and croquettes and cheesecake and other yummy stuff -- lots of food for the 15 of us. Then we had a gift exchange, everyone had drawn a name, b/c buying gifts for that many people is kind of ridiculous! I personally was glad about the arrangement. I had drawn the name of Nate, Jamie's 17-year-old brother. Woohoo, a gift certificate definitely did the trick. Jamie's dad had drawn my name, and bought me a Casting Crowns CD I really wanted. So I think it worked out rather well. I had to work the next day (Boxing Day) too, but I didn't mind too much.......holiday pay always sits well with me. :)
