HoHo's Been and Gone



That little fat man in the red suit didn't pick up the mess or vacuum the floor before he flew off on his sleigh; I'm going to have to add a P.S. to his thank you note I reckon.

Nanaw is tired.

But I had a little nap this afternoon so that helped.

We ate too much, but it was all good cause we sure had some mighty fine vittles to put on the table. We had the normal run of conversations during our extended family holiday gathering over at his Mom's last evening,,,,

Which family member/members probably hits the pain pills and/or bottle a little too much,

Who had the snippiest, snappiest, temperament of the day,

Who went to jail for loitering,,,,,

and so on.

At our house today we had our usual family holiday dinner discussion about the West Memphis 3 and whether or not they deserve a new trial (the number of those for and those against changed somewhat this year). We then progressed to my son's revelations about the corrections officer/Reverend that he torments with his views on religion and riches on a regular basis. This then led to a discussion (and I do not remember how?) about whether animals commit sins. Other topics were discussed but none were so interesting as the first 3.

Yep, we tend to branch out with intense conversational topics in this family; we do indeed.

I think the babies were as happy as tired babies can be with what Santa brought them. I reckon they'll be busy playing, for at least a few days, with all their contraband.

Trish, Jordan, and Jaylen are supposed to be here next weekend so I hope to have some photos of them then.

I hope everyone had a wonderful day!

Brenda,

Sounds perfectly normal and like everyone elses, LOL!

I bet you were wore plumb out...goodness gracious. But the kids are what makes it so special and I envy you being exhausted. I had a great Christmas too and yes, it's over. Whew...

Get rest, my dear and have visions of a maid!

Time for another nap today! You've got to get after that little fat man in the suit! Probably left some cookie crumbs on the floor too.

Glad you have a great time and some weird conversations!

I don't know about you, but I'm glad he's come and gone. We have one more Christmas celebration to go and I'm really looking forward to that one. Then it's time to get on with just normal life.

Have a happy New Year!

Sounds like a lively night at your house! My family gets into crazy conversations like that too! It's fun even when everyone is disagreeing on everything!
