is it friday already??

Wow. I feel like I abandoned you at the gas station or something.

Bad, bad blogger!

Well, how was your Christmas?

Mine was splendorous; we scampered over to my SIL's house and opened mountains of presents, drove back to our house and opened more loot (my kids are completely jazzed and haven't a clue what to play with first)
and were just about to leave to go back over to my SIL's for Christmas dinner

and the power went out.

Well, I thought we were screwed. But when we got there, all the side dishes were merrily finishing up on Coleman stoves, and the company was fabulous. The food, wonderful as usual.

Of course, about halfway through, Rosey turned to B and said in a plaintive little voice 'I ate too m......'

and then erupted all over B.

Christmas dinners are never boring 'round here.

(She's fine. Back to her sunny self this morning.)

*sigh* I wish I could say the same for my house. It's going to be a few days to knock the mess back, I think.

Maybe I can just eat more Christmas food and ignore it for awhile....

I think that does sound kind of divine, the puking excepted...

HA! 10:30 at night and I'm wiping turkey grease on my jeans. Mess? What mess?

Power out for the big meal. Sounds delightful! Hope you had a wonderful day!

Oh Rosey! I shouldn't laugh.
Oh and glad to hear you had such a great Christmas, so did we xx

Other than the sick little girl, the rest sounds good. Sorry about the vomit, though. :-(

Never a dull moment.

Glad you had a lovely Christmas. Ours was the best ever -- and I suppose they will just keep getting better and better, eh?

Ree said...

I'm with you. I'm eating all of the food to try to get it out of here faster. ;-)

Isn't it just fab when they throw up at the table, only bested when they threw up on their plate.
Glad she's feeling better though

Yeah...it's all fun and games until someone starts puking. But the snow looks great!

Eventually your kids get old enough that you no longer have to deal with puke on Christmas Day. I'd like to say I kind of miss it, but I'd be lying.
Glad you had a good day.
