krimbus happent. i had a bunch of time off, four days my friend, which meant ooooh fun cleaning and cooking and stuff. also, because of that holiday thing it meant mucho grande family time. friend family, my family, and Wolak family.
there was a lot of hanging out with dogs, that is always really nice.
first there was friend party time, at the kelleys house. so many faces to see that had been dearly missed.
there was a lot of sitting around a table full of delicious food, talking and discussing all the latest deets of everyones lives.
then that dern baby started drinking again...eeesh. not really! cora is totes straightedge, duh.
when i came home from friend party andrew had romantically put up my christmas tree. it made me cry, really serisouly. i have seasonal depression you see and it makes me cry at romantic things. but only in the winter, so you can suprise me romantically in the summer with no fear.
oh gosh, after friend party came my family party the next morning.
my mood was only 50% sad/upset, thats better than usual!
as always my mom had really gone to town on the place. even the chandelier!
she even brought in the yule stick!
we all sat around and ate lots of food and talked about our hobbies. most of the food was organized with little signs that told you what it was, and also told you what to eat it with. for example: there was a tiny sign that said "hummus" and underneath hummus it said "tortilla chips." isn't that helpful???
see? you can see the little signs. thats my family's motto, you know, "put signs in your food."
there were some dogs there to hang out with too, tuffy and lexi, and they were insane and crazy and totally ferocious and filled with loud farts and barks.
allright maybe i'm kidding, they are demure and sweet and fashionably warm, and softer than little lambs.
so you see, my grandma, who is sweet and wonderful, made most of the food for this get together. it was really a feast...so many different things labeled neatly that your eyes could not believe. upon arriving, i was advised to not eat anything with a sign on it, which was nearly everything. still the rebellious teenager, i only ate things with signs, also because i like organization. hm, well later i found out that my grandma made the foods over a week ago, and was totally ready for christmas feasting way before the due date. noone could look her in the eye when she asked how the buffalo chicken dip was, see?
well i felt fine later.
and by later, i mean at delicious dinner with the Wolaks!
we took photobooth photos in front of the tree
oh i forgot to tell you about how on christmas eve i got crazy and gave myself a haircut. it was sort of an all day affair. it started with a bang trim, but over the course of the afternoon became a full on endeavor. anyway, i like it.
hm. so after all that doubling up on possibly bad food then very good food, we went home and slept like logs.
THEN the next day we did nothing.
by nothing, i mean that we did sit and take delight in our presents from the day before, you bet cher butt.
andrew wouldn't stop holding this skateboard for some reason, i guess he really liked it.
then we went to get mexicun dinner!
we were all so full that we couldn't move after all the tacos, so we collectively sat and relaxed.
i took the time to observe some very cute ornaments while i was digesting.
then you know what? we went to bed.
the next morning was back to work for andrew, but i had the day off STILL. i worked all day on being not at work. i ran so many errands and did so many things that it would make your head spin to hear them all.
most importantly i made these:
they are for a chili potluck tonight, and they are chocolate covered peanut butter pretzels. i had one for breakfast, and let me tell you. they are so dern good.
well my coworker just left work barfing! if i get sick i swear to god i'm gonna punch someone. this throwing up is the worst kind of sick, i will seriously be angry if it get it.
i will keep you posted.
