Christmas was a whirlwind for me. December felt at the same time incredibly slow and insanely fast. Christmas is all over and somehow it almost doesn't seem like it happened at all. I really think that the holiday shouldn't be just one day but one week at least. One week of slowing down, spending time together, eating good food, drinking warm things, and generally enjoying life. Let's start a petition or something. Oh and we should add a snow requirement to that petition too, for sure.
Christmas eve we spent with Dave's family and it was so wonderful, restful, and fun, as always. Christmas morning we got up and had breakfast and some really good conversation about faith and God and bible and church and global christian missions with dave's parents and then headed down to Albany where my parents live.
We spent the rest of christmas day sitting around in our pj's eating christmas eve left overs and watching the new Dr Who Christmas special. Oh how i luuuuve that show!
dayquil and nightquil. I thought it was just a bad cold, and so i drank tons of water and juice and took lots of vitamins, but by thursday afternoon it figured out it was a full fledged flu, terrible stomach ache and painful aches abundant. So i had to call in sick to my job today and here i am bored to death on the couch, eating little cups of red jello and saltine crackers, and fruit smoothies with some horrible tasting natural stomach cleanser fiber thingy in it. It seems to be helping some but oh it' so gross.
So in addition to forcing my self to drink icky concoctions, I have found out that Teagan likes saltines and also jello and Piccoli goes crazy when the squirrel climbs into the bird feeder and looks at her. Really really crazy twitchy and running around the house with wild crazy cat eyes. Very entertaining.
Well, i'm feeling the need to sleep some more so i'll leave you with some links of our december holiday fun.
Dave has been really really great about documenting our holiday season on his blog, so for more details about our holiday, look at these. Hope you had a good holiday and managed to not get sick when it was all over. :)
