Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas to all!

I'm keeping this brief, but I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday! Mine has been awesome. It was an insane few days before Christmas. Last-minute gift shopping (got everyone covered, though! Yay me!), and then tons of baking. Stayed up into the wee hours baking snickerdoodles for the cookie potluck at swing class - that was a blast. Sugar highs and a live jazz band! And then of course craziness at work, more sugar highs just to get through the day, and insanity all around!

Had a wonderful Christmas Eve after I got home from the craziness. Slipped on cuddly socks and unwrapped presents. I received a beautiful blue Venetian mask, hedgehog stencils, snuggly pajamas (holiday tradition), hedgehog earrings, and best of all - my very own video camera! I can do longer, crisper, better Book Hauls now! It's the worlds most adorable camera, too - so tiny and cute and perfect. It seriously is no bigger than my hand. Smaller, even. It's perfect!

Then we watched A Christmas Carol with George C. Scott (the best version), as we always do, while eating homemade pizza, sipping sparkling cider, and cookies.

Today will be filled with preparing Christmas dinner, unpacking stockings (yes, in my family, we do prezzies on Christmas Eve; stockings Christmas Day. It extends the excitement), and fiddling with Robert my video camera (yes, I named it. Just as I named my mobile phone. Don't ask; I just happen to name inanimate objects). And then tomorrow I'm going to see PNB's The Nutcracker! Another holiday tradition! Can't wait!

Hope you all have the best of Christmases and I'll see you before the New Year!


  1. It sounds like a wonderful Christmas Eve. I hope you've had a very merry Christmas and lots of fun seeing The Nutcracker! :)

    1. Thanks, Kel! Same back to you! :) I did have a good Christmas, and The Nutcracker was a lot of fun, as usual. So sad that this is the last year PNB is doing this particular version.

  2. I'm glad you had a good Christmas! I had a relaxing holiday too once I got all my last minute things done :P

    1. Same here! Back to the grindstone now, though! ;)
