I truly hope that everyone who celebrates had a wonderful Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
The Day Before:
Don't know about the rest of you, but I've always enjoyed Christmas Eve more than Christmas Day itself. This Christmas Eve was nearly perfect. We had our traditional New Mexican meal, went to the candlelight service, and spent time afterwards as a family paying games while listening to Christmas music. Good times. :)
The Day Of:
On Christmas morning, we discovered that Santa, family, & friends were very kind to us again this year. I appreciate all the thoughtful gifts, but I must tell you that this will forever be remembered as the year of Apples-to-Apples.
The first one got a response of "Oooh! It's Apples-to-Apples. That's a fun game."
The second one "Oh my gosh, it's another Apples-to-Apples. I told you that it's fun."
The third one "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Apples-to-Apples. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA"
Don't get me wrong, it's a great game, and we had a blast playing it yesterday afternoon, but I'm not quite sure what we'll do with the extra two.
On a more serious note, Son offered to say grace before our Christmas meal. It was touching to hear a heart-filled thanks for the day in his own words.
The Day After:
I avoided it on Monday, but hopped on the scale this morning to see what kind of damage has been done in the past week.
I'm reminded now that cookies and cheese and pastries and mashed potatoes and stuffing and holiday food in general are NOT going to help me reach my weight goal by my birthday in Feb.
I am now only -2 of the desired -8. Boys and girls, it's time to get serious...
Glad you had a great day! Maybe we can get serious after New Years :-)ReplyDelete
What a lovely day you had :)ReplyDelete
Sounds like a perfect Christmas. :)ReplyDelete
I told myself today was my last day for eating crap. I hope that is true! I am with you on getting serious now!ReplyDelete
That's what the new year is about--getting down to business again! It sounds like you had a great Christmas! Enjoy your game/s!ReplyDelete
I spent time with in-laws, mexican meal, gotta luv the x-mas tamalas..ReplyDelete
I'm still afraid to stand on the scale.. Your a brave soul, you still actually losed weight over all the eating. Good job..
Glad you had a great Chrismas :)ReplyDelete
I like Christmas Eve more, too.
I'm finally getting serious today. I kept eating those last pieces of pie and those last biscochitos just to get them out of the house!
I agree. Christmas Eve is more fun than Christmas Day. Just like New Year's.ReplyDelete
Sounds like an awesome Christmas!ReplyDelete
Sounds like you had a wonderful christmas holiday! We played so much apples to apples on christmas even and day! Too much fun!ReplyDelete
Weight loss during the holidays is mere impossible. Unless you lock yourself in a room for a week!
Crap, I have to weigh too. BLAH
