Isn't Christmas Supposed To Be ONE Day?

Christmas is coming gone and the Robin goose is getting fat. Hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas! The past couple days have been long but fun..

First, we woke up and opened presents with our best friends....

then went to the hospital to visit Harvey (my mother in law's boyfriend)..he just had a quad bypass on Monday :-( but he's doing very well....

then went to see Paul Sr (Piper's Grandpa)...

then over to Grandma's (my mom-in-law) for dinner....(I along with my husband, brother, sis-in-law, and parents will now call this The Night That Robin Took The Worst Pictures Ever - they will not be shown here)

Look at this beautiful hurricane vase my mom-in-law gave me..

I decided it would make a perfect wine glass..

then decided a helmet would be a better bet..

See what my brother does to me while I cat-nap? No respect.. Later Christmas night back at our friend's house.

Chillin while trying to convince Chuck that chocolate covered fruit is not healthy by quoting the carb/suger content of each serving..

He wasn't convinced...

Christmas was STILL not over. We spent the evening at my parents house tonight eating dinner and opening gifts...I really don't know how I can eat any more...Anything I've done in the last 3 months to stay in shape will now be down the tubes..

The adults drew names this year. We each had to keep our gifts down to $50 and had to be very creative in our presentation to the person whose name we drew.

Paul had to break open a pinata blind-folded that my brother and sis-in-law made for him..His gifts were inside.

Paul put Keith's gift inside a spaghetti squash...

I cut out pages and pages of a cookbook and hid my dad's gift card in it. It's a potato cookbook. He hates potatoes with a vengence.

Misty and my mom had to go on scavenger hunts around the house to get their gifts.

The kids had fun too..

One more to go when we get back home. We still have to celebrate Christmas there as well...I know that Jesus is the reason for the Season but I still hope there is a MacBook under the tree for me..I really think He wants me to have one since I say my prayers every day and night. I don't think Paul agrees though. I probably have just coal in my stocking...

Okay- so I've been reading the whole bloggy world's christmas day and eve and morning and night and day after affairs and I just have to say that you win!

I laughed OUT LOUD when I read about your creative gift exchanging ! The pinata, potato book, inside a squash!!


I may have to convert just to be able to celebrate with you next year!

I'm worn out.

I'm married. I have 3 kids. I have a big nose. Now go on and catch up.

Keep it nice or I'll post your email and make fun of you.
