The Big Day...

Christmas 2007 is officially "complete" according to Sheep Family Tradition.  We start it up early and wrap it up in a pretty darned efficient fashion.  Hence, I was safely back at the manse by 3:00 or so which allowed me to refresh from the day's labors with a little nap and the happy discovery of a Miami Ink marathon on the big, glowing box of entertainment.  Although how on earth one can become so fatigued by having spent the day leisurely opening gifts, chatting and eating foods in amounts not generally recommended by nutritionists is simply beyond me.  But, for some reason, I am just about done in despite my little afternoon snooze.

I am hoping that eating salty and chocolaty things now counts as cardio and thus can explain my dozy state.  Could it be that Santa got my letter on this one?  

The Sheep Family Christmas was a good one, though.  Baby Brother Sheep drove hard over the last week or so in order that he might finish up his route in time to be home for the holidays.  Future SIL Sheep baked up a storm and the Parental Sheep hosted the event in fine fashion.  We gifted one another lavishly and appropriately.  My own haul boasted presents ranging from the highly practical to the downright decadent.  I'm a lucky, lucky girl and didn't complain once as I was lugging it all up the stairs to my second floor condo.  I may even get around to putting everything away sometime before Valentine's Day!  

I hope that everyone out there had a wonderful day, whether it was spent celebrating Christmas or simply enjoying a lovely Tuesday.  




I wish for you all an abundance of good times and the joy of silly hats!

Merry Christmas! It sounds like the upgrade to Probationary Nice status did the trick. Were you presented with some nice fiber-related gifts?

Hmm, that's a picture of a pretty darned grumpy looking Sheep!

;o)

No pic for me - I am so disappointed! Am I missing a particularly good shot of Sheep in a fine new holiday chapeau?

(And the verification word I got is "zsorkfu" - I love it! My weirdo sense of humor there.)

I can't see the picture, either, darn it. Glad to hear your Niceness was well-rewarded and that the family was all safely together.

That's a funny picture! Rest up, SA!

I saw no picture, however I did wear a funny hat. All is not lost.

Glad your day was a good one!

Merry, Merry Christmas, Sheepie!

Sounds a lot like our day too--lots of chocolate, champagne, food and festivity! We even had a silly hat--a blow-up Cheez hat--and stockings. The ritual snowball fight (what else do you do with wrapping paper?) took place as well. Hey, it's SoCal, we don't get the real thing so we have to make do!
Glad you had a good holiday and got lots of rewards for being good!

LOL - I sat down on my bed with some knitting this morning around 9 a.m. - woke up at 11:30 a.m. with no recollection of actually laying down, having a cat curl up on me or even taking off my glasses. They must have put some sedatives in the cookies this year.

Thanks for a great year of chuckles (and coffee-soaked keyboards) and have a great vacation!

Love the hat!

If eating salty and chocolate things really did count as cardio, then I'd be SKINNY as a rail right now!

Glad to hear you had a nice Christmas.
