Merry Christmas, Happy Ho Ho, and all that good stuff

December 24, 2008

Growing up, Christmas Eve was the big Christmas day.  My grandfather was a Lutheran minister and after the candlelight service on Christmas Eve we drank hot cocoa, ate sickening amounts of chocolate and opened presents until the wee hours of the morning.  Christmas Day was for gorging and playing with our toys.

Sadly this was the first year I didn’t spend Christmas with my brother – but we did have an early Christmas with him, his wife and cousin Rachel last Sunday.

This afternoon Rae and her brother Sam met Haley and I in Union Square for some MORE ice skating! 😛 We had super-fun!

Afterwards we went home and watched ELF!  Then we got dressed and went to church.

After church we opened our gifts:  Sam got motorcycle prettifying stuff; Haley got Cinnamoroll swag, Rae LOVES her UmberDove pillow and I got a supersoft bathrobe and a book from my dream gay husband, Thom Filicia 😀

 Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

(I’m off to sleep -er – a long winters’ nap 😀 )



  1. I had sooooo much fun! I love you and Haley very very much! I think we’ve started a new ice skating on Christmas Eve tradition! Merry Christmas to both of you and have a happy New Year! Love, Cousin Rae 🙂

  2. I feel I was there with all of you! Thank you all so much for the wonderful Christmas call! I love you all so much. Merry Christmas to all.
