Another one down...

Well I made it through Christmas and managed to be done and ready before Christmas Eve! We actually had a "WHITE" Christmas here in Texas! Yes, we had a blizzard on Christmas Eve and it snowed all day long and into the night. It was beautiful and lovely and colder than crap! Of course by evening the roads were iced over and made for some treacherous driving so the annual party with in-laws was almost a total bust, but those of us who showed managed to have a good time. Guess what a 50 year old drunken male does when it snows in Texas?

He makes the Perfect Snow Angel, such a proud moment from Hubby!

I know our blizzard wasn't a blizzard in some of your standards, BUT, this was the first white Christmas in Fort Worth Texas since like the 1930's and it was a blizzard to us.  Here's C3 having a good time in the snow:

Christmas Day was good, a little different with M joining us for the first time. But I like her and hope she's around for a long time. Christmas afternoon was at my mom's and actually wasn't as bad as I anticipated. Sometimes getting together with LOADS of people is not so easy but Hubby and I discovered that a shot of tequila before heading over there helped A LOT! Will have to remember that for next year.

Hubby and I spent the day with C1 and M at their apartment putting the grill together that we got them and then having a cookout with his friends. I really enjoyed that and it didn't even feel weird to hang with them and their friends. Is that a sign?

Today my oldest sister and I took our Mom to see the New York Radio City Rockette's Christmas Show. Actually was dreading hanging with my sis for that long, but it was a really good show and my mom enjoyed it so much, her joy brought tears to my eyes.

Now it's Sunday evening and I can't believe that I have to go to work tomorrow. Thankfully it's another short week, which I should be thankful for, but I know that this short week and another long weekend will bring on a very LONG couple of months ahead with no time off. I really need a vacation! I do have one thing to look forward to, if I can make it until the end of February! I am finally going to meet two of best buds in the whole world whom I met here in blogland! Yep, Hawkeye Chick, Sarah and I are finally meeting for a 24 hour whirlwind meet-up and I cannot wait. It will get me through the next two months of hell, that's for sure!

Hope all of you had a WONDERFUL and MERRY CHRISTMAS and here's to a very BLESSED NEW YEAR to all of you!

You mean 24 hours of awesomeness right??

As for the snow- I'm glad that you weren't completely snowed in for the entire weekend like other people I won't mention....

And Sarah's mom, don't forget her! :) And I'm so, so SO excited too!

Sounds like you had a great time with C1 and glad it went well.

Here is a late Merry Christmas to you and it sounds like you had a wonderful time. M sounds like she is going to be really good for C1! And the fact that you got along with his/her friends is a great thing!

Hang in there and enjoy the New Year!
