Merry Post Christmas!

How was everyones Christmas?

Mine was fantabulous! :D

Family was able to make it through the snow--and we had a beautiful, delicious ham dinner Christmas Eve--then fell upon the presents with glee.

MiniWarrior cracked us up.

Right after dinner, he stood up and started going around the table collecting dirty dishes from everyone and said, "Now, you guys just rest and let your dinner digest. That way when you open your presents you won't yell JACKPOT! and get a stomach ache!"

*Snort*

His angle was to get us to move into the progression of eat dinner--open gifts. He had been asking all day as to when we were going to open them but had not gotten a definitive answer.

The kid is a born politician!

God help us...

Santa was very kind to me!

Here are two of my gifts: (the fridge in the middle was from last year)
Loveeeeeeeeeee them *sing song voice*




Annnnnnd...my main gift?

A telephoto 70-300 image stabilization lens for Chanda! WOO!!

You can see the Christmas Sunset I took with her new attachment HERE


Everyone was delightfully spoiled by Santa and his relative elves this year.

But *other then the awesome lens* the thing I love the most?

Was being cozied up with family, snowbound, enjoying the Ham feast and sharing the excitement and laughter of the holidays.

Good times. Good times.

I have tracked myself all over your blogs this morning checkin on how your holidays were. Seems everyone (who posted: *hint*cough*hint*) had a fabulous Christmas time!

Yay us! :D

Hi Kat,
It sounds like you had a wonderful time...I hope you and Chandra have fun with your new toy...
I know that my Dad always loved the power outages because he love. the quiet and didn't mind the work...My Step-Mother didn't like it so much. As a teenager when I would go visit them and the power would go out, I would do the cooking and water heating, and tend the fires as long as my Dad kept the firewood coming it was all good...And I was never bored and always slept well on those nights.
((Hugs)))
