Holiday Wrap Up Bullet Style (as if there was another way to do it)

  • Santa came, Santa spoiled, Santa left.
  • My house can now be declared a Lego store.  I just need to make a sign and hang it in the front window.
  • The favorite toys of the year were the Lego sets and the American Girl Doll.  Whose birthday is apparently today, and I have been declared a bad “grandmother” for not realizing that fact any buying her a present or two (like a bed and a new outfit).
  • My husband made a Christmas Eve run to the yarn store, and my lovely LYS owners, knowing a desperate male when they see one, made my Christmas quite merry!  They even remembered my favorite brands of yarn, what needle sizes I was missing, and the fact that I store my circular needles in ziplock bags.
  • M also cooked the turkey on Christmas Day, and it was amazing how not having to worry about the turkey made the holiday so much less stressful.  He did an amazing job and now owns the turkey for the rest of our married days.
  • My house may never recover.  Seriously.  And matters are not being helped by the fact that our normal garbage pickup is on Friday, so we already had a weeks worth of trash, and now have a weeks worth of trash plus Christmas trash, plus two weeks of recycling sitting in our garage.  I have forbade anyone from generating any more trash or recycling.
  • New Years is shaping up to be a lovely evening consisting of my two playgroups plus a few neighborhood friends who know my house better than I do.  So very much better than the chaos that ensued last year.  And as our two late night “we are going to see the ball drop” families have declined the invite this year, everyone should be long gone by 10pm except Rebecca and her family, meaning I can have some semblance of normal returned to my house before heading to bed.
  • Now I need to stop eating and hit the gym.  A lot.  Even my fat jeans are a bit snug this afternoon.
  • That won’t stop my from my turkey quesadillas with brie and cranberry chutney, however.  No sir-ree Bob!
  • Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season, if you find yourself lacking in Legos, just let me know.


  1. We too are swimming in Lego and perhaps a Transformer or two. Barbies and Polly Pockets abound. Santa is always generous with my favourite things, movies, books and photography equipment. We had a wonderful time with the family and I couldn’t ask for a better Christmas as I even got a nap in this year.

  2. I’m so glad to hear you being happy about your Christmas, It sounds like it was a lot of fun and not the stressful event you thought it might be-that”s always a relief! Wishing you lots of fun at your party and a Happy New Year’s, too!

  3. Do you know what my 18 yo kid asked for? Legos! So he got a smallish set to go with the boxes and boxes that are still in his closet. I guess you can never have too many Legos!

    Merry Christmas!
