Christmas was a flurry of driving around, house to house, here there everywhere. It went by in a flash too because I only had the statutory holiday days off.

We had Chinese with Greg on Xmas eve, Jeff passed out just before midnight, to which I woke him up and insisted we open our gifts to eachother because it's something we've typically done together every year because were always schlepping around from house to house. I got a beautiful watch and some Lululemon underwear 😍 Jeff got some tshirts, a mountain hardware hoodie, a gc to get some hats and a Saddleback leather wallet from Texas he's been eyeing forever. Although now I'm totally dry for ideas for his birthday which is at the end of January. He's so hard to buy for, if he wants something he either gets it and saves for it. I'll have to think about that more....

Christmas morning we woke up, showered and then went over to my moms for breakfast and to open some gifts. Breakfast was yummy albeit long but in good company. As you can see from the picture evidence, lots of pictures were taken and the dogs were so helping in partaking in the festivities around the tree, rooting around in bags, stepping on presents and ripping paper. Such mosey little boys and I say boys because mom's two couldn't be bothered with mucking li and around the tree. We scored amazingly well at moms - cologne and perfume, from Brian, who else? ; a gc to our favourite Mexican restaurant fr my Aunt, a blazer, skirt, top, pyjamas, slippers, and two sweet gift cards to Jacob and Lululemon respectively, all from mom and the puppies (such helpful little shoppers lol). For Jeff my mom got him two sweet gc's to Bass Pro and one for MWW and some pyjamas. My Momma definitely spoils me, can you tell I'm her only child? One image that seems seared in my brain is one that my mom told me last night while I was o over picking up the boys... She said Jeff almost looked sad as he watched me open more gifts... I don't know why, sad maybe not the word but whatever t is, it kinda makes me sad too. He made out really well so it's not that. But then again I feel like I looked and may have felt similarly when he was opening all of his gifts from his parents. Regardless, I'm thankful and grateful for all that my mom does for us and for me. Life would be a much more empty/sad place without my. Mom in it. I hate thinking about the passage of time because I want my Momma to live forever.

Alright I'm done being a sap lol On to happier thoughts.

Following breaking and opening gifts, it was after 12 so we decided that we should leave as we'd have a long drive ahead of us.  Made it up north in decent time, not much traffic going northbound.  I was up at my in-laws less than 24 hours before I came home.. the joys of working today and tomorrow.  Jeff stayed up with his parents to spend some time with them, which is fine with me, his mother isn't too well.. she has COPD, that lovely smoker's disease.

Baxter, at my mom's Christmas morning, just after having gotten there. He looks quite happy eh? :)

That's it for now, my head is killing me so this is where I stop writing.
