Merry Christmas!

After working almost a full day on Christmas Eve (yippee - I left an hour earlier than normal!) we headed down to Colorado Springs to spend the evening with the in-laws! I hadn't seen my DD since Saturday and was very happy to give her a big hug! Poor kid, she got the flu while she was there! We had a wonderful Polish dinner and stuffed ourselves to the gills! We even got some leftovers to take home! Breakfast!!

We opened a few gifts - no many since we decided only to buy for the kids this year. And then we headed home to crash! We forced Dan to open one gift so he could enjoy it in the morning - tea from London! He was thrilled to get that! Then we went off to la-la land!

Melanie was so thoughtful - she waited until 8 a.m. to get me out of bed! Then we bounced downstairs and opened our gifts in our jammies! It's the only time of year that I do that - I usually always shower first! But it's Christmas! Melanie loved everything that she got and so did Dan. I got a few sweaters, a few cute stamps and cards from Toni and a lot of smiles!!

The rest of our day will be hanging out and cooking a nice ham dinner for all of us to enjoy!

Hope you have a very wonderful Christmas Day!

21 Exclamation points. If you put them all together it would look like this: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm glad you had such a great Christmas; Polish grub sounds awesome. I was shocked to see how much less like a girl and more like a young lady Mel looks--you're doing a good job. ;) Merry Christmas, and thank you for the kind words about mine!
