While it was simply precious to have a White Christmas, it meant that we spent Christmas alone since the particular set of family members due to arrive that day are mostly over OVER 80 years old. Since the Snow Walker (with tennis rackets instead of tennis balls??) has yet to be invented, they did not particularly feel like braving the snow to trudge their way to our house. Losers.
No matter, we enjoyed the slow, relaxing day. I cooked the traditional meal from scratch - stuffing, potatoes, cranberry relish and funeral corn. Since
The day was not a waste - it was nice to just relax in our pajamas and do nothing but eat, watch movies and play with our new toys.
On Saturday, I high-tailed my butt to a shoe store to buy boots. On Friday, I had discovered with horror that I had NO BOOTS because I had given away all of my winterish shoes in the spring - all the shoes that were about 1/2 size too small because no one warns you that giving birth may increase your shoe size. So! New shoes!
That evening, I took Arun for his First Sledding Ever. It was everything I could have hoped for - nice, slick snow, a new sled and a boy squealing with delight. Although, that same boy screamed bloody murder when his butt got too cold and he had to be escorted quickly to the safe confines of the car. I have no pictures from our sledding adventure because I chose to use a vintage recording device instead. My brain. Amazing, yet true! I wanted to just enjoy the moment and be present without worrying over the Perfect Shot.
Overall, it was a nice weekend with few complaints. Yes indeed, Life is good.
How was your holiday?
