Only 363 More Shopping Days Til Next Christmas!

In case you're wondering how my eye is doing, it's fine. A mere twenty four hours after it had initially swelled up and I looked like I had some sort of frog as a not too distant ancestor in the family tree, things returned to normal and I was able to deliver my Christmas fudge. Phew. But it took most of the day to get it to calm down and reduce the swelling. Very bizarre.

So, I hope you all had merry Christmases. I had a marvelous day myself. We had breakfast over at Nate and Penny's- a sumptuous affair, let me tell you. I had to go lie down on the couch for a little while towards the end, I was so full...The guys topped off the morning by seeing who could throw leftover tater tots the farthest in the backyard. Penny and I joined in a couple of times. High hilarity. I guess it will have to become an annual ritual: the tossing of the tots. Nate referred to one mighty throw as, " The Tot heard 'Round the World." Ah, that Nate. Such a wit. Too bad he doesn't keep up with his own blog. He could have one of the most sought after blogs in all blogdom- but if he doesn't care to maintain it, I will be forced to report his unique witticisms for him.

In the afternoon, we traveled over to the Pass parents' house and did the whole stocking thing, gift thing, card games thing, and dinner thing there. Great fun was had by all. I got tons of cool loot and it was a really good family time of making a lot of wonderful memories.

It seems like the world has heaved a collective sigh now that Christmas is over for another year.

Ah yes...sigh, sigh. NOW...it's thank you card time, and email writing time to say sorry I didn't get around to sending you a christmas card, so I'm sending you an email update instead. Never ends....life is one chore after another. Nothing new under the sun and so on. Sorry if i sound like Eeorye!

I laughed out loud at nate's pun... I love puns, just like Mr. P:) I can't think of a pun to tie this up but...
Have a Great New Year... if I try a pun I'll probably end up being really corny... it's late and I am tired!:)Night!

I didn't realize tater tots ever made to left overs! Sounds like fun though.
