Christmas 2010

Christmas kicked my butt this year...

I seriously have new found respect for my darling little mom...

Cooking breaks down the human body into lumps of pain...

I got so tipsy Christmas eve night, I almost put laundry detergent in my dishwasher. Sigh...

If my mom wouldn't have checked the turkey for me, we would have all died of food poisoning...

I woke up on Christmas morning, cleaned my little heart out, flipped my brining turkey named Big Bird and began prepping food and planning oven/stove times. For something like six hours I cooked and slaved in that kitchen. I'm pretty sure I was humming slaves' hymns by the time the stuffing was done.

I didn't have matching dishes...The turkey wasn't ready so we had wasabi mashed potatoes, apple pecan stuffing, green beans and meatloaf. (A Jesus birthday banana dessert pie later). It wasn't traditional needless to say.

I'm one of those weirdlings who try to be the hostest with the mostest, but I failed miserably. Luckily my family and boo rock so everything was still lovely. We opened up gifts, laughing and screaming over all the thoughtfulness floating around in the room. It 'twas cool.

I did NOT get to watch A Christmas Story because we don't have the dang station anymore. (Definitely reminded this Christmas that we don't have much money and we're really like that cute little quintessential 'struggling' couple.) We're kind of like Claire and Frank from Scrooged...Charlie Brown tree...a million wishes and dreams...yadda yadda yadda.

My favorite part of the day? Watching the guy open his gifts...his face lit up like a Christmas tree.

It ain't over yet, though! My parents are still in town. I plan to do some more holiday damage with them. Still have friend's gifts to give and all. Don't you hate it when Christmas day ends and people just stop? You see nothing of that lovely spirit left...I REFUSE to let it go!

Merry Christmas luvs!
