Christmas Eve

A Christmas recap, done way after the fact because the holiday turned into barf fest reminiscent of the pie eating contest in Stand by Me.  But before the Illness… there was some Krismiss.  Here is the tree the night before, with prezzies on display from Santa:

The morning of Christmas Eve, before heading to Grammy’s house, we opened Santa’s spoils.  Lucy and I got matching luggage to assist in our many travels, and Lucy got a big fat beanbag to cuddle in.  I got Pete a pair of Chrome cycling pants. And that’s about it.  We try to keep the gifts to about one apiece. See how tired we look?  Like we haven’t slept in a year?  That’s how we look every morning.  Before we smooth the area around our eyes with plaster and a putty knife, and before our first espresso.Many new ornaments made an appearance this year, thank goodness, since last year I think we had about three.  This was made by Kristin, and reads “Lucy’s 1st Christmas”, which she later realized is actually a year LATE because this is her second Christmas.  Haha, pretty funny.This was my contribution in Lucy’s name, in honor of her bedtime buddy Charlie, the Seahorse.  This seahorse represents an important part of our year, Lucy going into a crib on her own accord!This is the ornament I got for Pete.  An acorn… because he’s nuts!  Or we’re nuts!  I dunno, I just was really drawn to it at that little posh boutique in Whitehall and I had to have the acorn.  Was either this or a raccoon, which would have been cool too.Lucy opening her baby doll, a generous gift that arrived in the mail from my old co-worker Pat.  So thoughtful.Fun with white Christmas lights the night before.

More specifics about the puke fest and Christmas Day at Grammy’s later…
