Christmas Brunch With the Neighbors

’T was the AFTERNOON before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads

-Clement Clarke Moore, A Visit From St. Nicholas

Happy Christmas Eve afternoon to you all!!! I woke up super giddy this morning knowing that Santa is coming tonight and tomorrow morning. We have two big parties to attend to tonight, the first is with my Dads extended family and then one with my Mamma’s extended family (where I will fit all the food I don’t know).

I woke up early this morning, but the burrito I had last night did not sit well with my stomach so I did not get in a workout, oh well good thing I have a 2 hour boot camp on Saturday!!!

Hubby and I had brunch with our neighbors around 10am and I am just getting back. Check out all the yummy food!

I am sure I won’t be blogging much for a couple days, spending time with the fam. I leave you with the true meaning of Christmas…..

"And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, 'Fear not: for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.' And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.'"

MERRY CHRISTMAS! FELIZ NAVEDAD! HAPPY HANUKKAH!

I think he looks fine...But I do know what you mean. When you live with them, all you see is a skinned rat with a furry head and tail when others see a neatly groomed dog!
