Coming up For Air, How I Spent My Christmas Vacation.

My house looks like a post apocalyptic Christmas. I have cleaned my living room at least three times (all but vacuum, which I was planning to do) and the kids have messed it up. There is only so much energy to go around before I poop out for the day so needless to say I was a bit mad these last days.

Christmas was fun, and we experienced another miracle. My brother in-law found the x-wing and was offered money for it on the way to the check out. So Tweedle E got his x-wing. Good thing too. As he was opening his Santa present he kept saying "I know what this is, I know what this is."

I got my back scratcher and special oil of olay in shower body lotion, as well as belly and boob cream. That's all I put on my list because I'm so itchy. Mr. Wonderful didn't think that was enough (because he was getting an ipod) so he bought me two maternity tops and a nursing top. The kids got me "The Order of The Phoenix" and "The Half Blood Prince" so now we have a complete set. I got spoiled but even with out the extras I would have been happy. Did I mention that I'm itchy?

Tweedle D got his Batman Begins video. I was a little nervous about giving it to him, because we hadn't seen it before, but I watched it with him and I was actually impressed. I think it is the best Batman movie so far.

Ches and Sariah spoiled us too. We love the tripod and Mr. Wonderful can't wait to use his new pro pots football crock pot. I myself am looking forward to a relaxing footbath. Thanks guys.

I got to spend time with my family and on Christmas Eve we dragged them out for traditional nativity watching (Mr. Wonderful's family tradition) and they enjoyed it. Mr. Wonderful also tried to make croissants for breakfast for Christmas morning (another tradition) and although they tasted fine they didn't look.... He has plenty of time to get it right.

Unfortunately it all ended too soon and we are now back to real life. Mr. Wonderful is back at work and I'm trying to clean up the carnage of wrapping paper and dirty laundry. My family has all gone to there separate corners. One thing I didn't get to do this year was watch White Christmas with Bing Crosby, oh and we never heard Six White Boomers.

I hope you enjoy many itchless months to come!

Sounds like a great Christmas! And you didn't mention puking in between each present being opened, so I'm taking that as a good sign.

We had croissants, too, but we just bought some premade ones at the grocery store. If Ches wants them homemade, he can make them himself. He keeps telling me how difficult it is to get *just* right.

I'm glad you had a good Christmas!

Happy New Year!
