The picture says it all

Greetings bloggy friends! Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, blah, blah, blah!

Christmas is wonderful. I love it, eagerly anticipate it, totally adore it. But sort of like a visit from your crazy Great Aunt Myrtle, you're kinda glad to see it end. Amen?

This picture entertains me greatly. It was Christmas night after all the hoopla, and hubs and I look like zombies.
"Santa Schmanta" or "Bah Humbug" or "More wine please"

We drove 1,000 miles to Columbia, TN to spend the holiday with my pesky brother-in-law Mark and sweet sister-in-law Sherri and family. We had a fantastic time....great food, laughs and loving being with family.

The only down side was that on Christmas Eve it snowed like 5" at home, while we were in TN with no snow. Boohoo.

We came home on the 26th and there was still snow on the ground and we got a little more snow on Tues. I believe that snow is proof that God love us and wants us to be happy. I love how it blankets everything in silence. I love how it makes me want to curl up at home with a book and hot chocolate. Sadly for me we don't exactly live in a snow zone, so that may be the only snow we see this winter. Sniff.

We spent New Year's Eve with friends, where surprisingly I stayed awake until midnight. It wasn't easy, but I persevered. Staying up until midnight is so overrated.

So while I am happy to be done with the hoopla, I am not ready for school to start again. I have way too much fun hanging out with my blonde rascal.He is such a source entertainment to me. I love simply talking with him. His thought process, his vocabulary, his sense of humor, his laughter.....it all makes my heart swell. But back to school he must go on Tuesday because unlike staying up until midnight, an education is not overrated. I mean, he is going to have to graduate from college, have a rewarding career that he enjoys and succeeds at, so he can take care of mama when I am old, wobbly and drooly.
