I would have to say that despite one major incident this would have to be one of the best Christmases on record.? Ok, the over abundance of snow and ice did put a damper on things, but other than that it was all pretty good.? The trusty Father-in-law got the van stuck in the driveway on the way to church Christmas Eve and we had to park a few miles away from my mom’s house and have my step-dad come get us because of the snow.? Oh, and there was the time when we went to put snacks in the oven after the boy went to bed last night only to find out that our oven had crapped out and wouldn’t work anymore thus necessitating a trip all over town the day after Christmas to find a new oven, but hey!? I got a Wii, so that more than makes up for it right?? No?? How about a Wii and a super fancy new espresso machine?? Yeah… I can stay up all night kicking the trusty husband’s ass in cow racing.? Now that’s entertainment.? It almost makes me forget that I just had to shell out $650 that I didn’t have on an oven that I secretly wanted, but didn’t want to pay for.? I could have used that money for things like a Wii Fit and um… car payments.? At least I’m caffinated.
Per usual the child thought Christmas was the shiz-nit.? He scored big time on awesome gifts from everyone.? A new bike from Santa, lots of little gifts from his parents and non-noise making toys from the remainder of the family.? Except that talking broom my mom bought.? I can forgive talking toys that are actually functional and are a service to me.
In our Christmas aftermath we will be shoveling out the miscellaneous crap to make room for the new crap.? We will be swearing to each other that we keep trying to slice bread with the toaster because the knives have been moved and the toaster has taken it’s place.? We are taking a trip to LaConner to visit Sam & Cari and won’t make them visit a farm.
In the tradition of us skipping town we’ll make this an end of the year delurk edition.? My readership has changed drastically over the past 4 years of me blogging and I’d like to get to know you.? So delurk.? And tell me a little about yourself.? Hmm… how about…
What New Year’s resolution would you like to make, but know you will break by January 2nd.? I’ll be back on the 2nd, and let’s see if we can’t do better than 15 comments.
