Christmas is officially over!! :-(

Everyone is all snug in their beds (except possibly Man-Child - who is making movements ahead!).  What does that mean - that the excitement is over.  The gifts have been opened; the food has been eaten.  It's time now for that quiet reflection - what will 2010 possibly bring (only fabulous things - of this I am positive!)?

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!  Ours was great; if rather quiet (which was fine by me!).

Man-Child actually rose before 10:00 am!  A Christmas miracle in itself! 

We opened gifts.  We oooohed and aaaahed!  Everyone was pleased.

We went to church (well, most of us - Hubby is feeling ill so we let him stay home) - enjoyed a wonderful service.  Came home to the wonderful feast that Hubby had prepared (despite his feeling ill).  Shared it with friends.  Enjoyed the glee that only a toddler can have over a cartoon. ('cause really? The sound of a small one cackling over a cartoon is probably the funniest thing I've heard in a long time!)  And now?

It's over.  That special feeling that only Christmas can evoke.  We can only try to replicate it throughout the year.  But ..... despite our greatest efforts ..... it's just not the same - although our hearts might be in the right place.

At any rate, I hope you've all enjoyed your Christmas!  And (as I do, am) looking forward to a very bright new year!!!  It will be great!  And sharing it with you all - well, that means even more than I can possibly say!


  1. Sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas!!! Ours was a bit busier and now I should go to bed!!

  2. I love Christmas and am always disappointed when it's over, the 26th I'm usually ready to take the tree down, put everything away, and start fresh all over again.

  3. Happy, Merry day!! It's like gearing up for the "ultimate wedding"....when it's over, there's always gonna be this letdown feeling.

    Onward, sweetie! New Year's awaits!

  4. Glad to hear you had a good Christmas!
