The day after

Ahhhh, I feel a sense of calm.  It is all over (except for the eating).  However, it is possible the sense of calm has something to do with the Bailey's I put in my morning coffee today!  hehe

We had a busy, but wonderful 2 days.  Christmas Eve saw visitors coming and going from about 10:30am until the last ones left about 11:30pm.  We were exhausted but it was a happy exhausted.  And this is one of our Christmas Eve visitors
He is my cousin Terri's grandson.  Two months old and a real charmer.  We all enjoyed meeting him for the first time. 

Christmas Day we had a break from the company - just a nice quiet day for the three of us.  I cooked the turkey (20 pounds) on Christmas Eve so I just had to prepare the vegetables in the morning.  We had a big dinner around 1pm and there were so many veggies leftover, we repeated the same huge meal at 6pm.

And the Fat Man didn't forget Millie either.  Here she is testing out her new bed and one of many many new toys.

Last night was just layed around like lumps, watching Christmas movies, and thinking about what to eat next.  When I went to bed last night I hid the bathroom scales in the linen closet.  No need to see that for awhile!


  1. Such sweetness those little babies! Especially when they are sleeping!
    I see Millie did very well this Christmas! She looks really classy on red plaid!
    I know what you mean with the scale! It's pretty scary stuff! Time to get on the treadmill! LOL
    Happy Day after!

  2. Cute little baby!
    Millie is adorable on her queen size bed! If I had gotten a new bed for Christmas, that's where I'd be right now. LOL!
    Glad you had a wonderful day! Take care and enjoy what's left of your vacation.

  3. I put my scales away the first of December. I was tired of guilt. I will get them out again on Jan 1st so I have a week to work real hard before I see the damage. Your visitor was cute for his first Christmas. I have put away all of my Christmas stuff now and my house looks like it did before. All I have to do is vacuum and I am back to normal. It sounds like you had a very nice few days.

  4. Millie looks cute on her bed! the baby is sweet too!Cheri

  5. I'm glad Millie got something from Santa! Looks like she loves it too! Glad you had lots of visitors and had a great day!

    Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
